Today my dog and I have come such a long way. Due to Grisha's book I learned how to teach him to controll his excitement. Suddenly walks wasnt so depressing for him. No more anxiety, no more fear for him to end up in a situation he couod not handle. I will always be greatful to Grisha for the skills she taught me in her books. After my success with this book I bought The Official Ahimsa Dog Training Manual: A Practical, Force-Free Guide to Problem Solving and Manners and I feel these books have helped me help my dogs to a happier and healthier life full of adventure and fun. Thank you, Grisha!

The training described is a nicely refined modification of counter-conditioning. I've had occasion to use it for a dog who had severe dog aggression issues, and it was the critical factor in modifying that dog's behavior to the point where she learned to make a couple of canine friends. It literally saved her life. Read the book. Study the book. Read it again. Then go back to it as a reference, as needed. Highly recommended.
The methods in this book are extremely easy to follow, and are accompanied by photos and drawings to help the reader visualize exactly what they are supposed to do, and what to look for in your dog as far as body language goes. It works by rewarding the appropriate responses from your dog by allowing them to get away from the object/person/animal they are reacting to. It's great because it actually re-shapes the way the dog thinks, so they end up adopting this method all on their own, after a deal of repetition. Using this method alone my dog stopped chasing and barking at bicycles completely, and her reactivity towards people has gotten so much better. When we see people coming towards us on walks now, she will break her fixation on them and ask me to turn around so that we can walk away- I don't know of any other training method that teaches a dog to do that!!
Of course, it's always great to have lots of different methods in your arsenal, so I do recommend several different training books (Control Unleashed by Leslie McDevitt, Click to Calm by Emma Parsons, Fired Up Frantic and Freaked Out by Laura VanArendonk Baugh are all great) but if you have an aggressive or reactive dog this should be the VERY FIRST book you buy, because it's absolutely invaluable!
"Set Ups" are highly recommended as part of the BAT program, and I experienced first-hand how valuable these can be. I helped a friend work on her dog's fear reaction, and in recreating the event that scared him, and breaking it down into it's component parts, we discovered that the dog was not reacting to what the owner had thought. Knowing exactly what to work on certainly makes for more successful training! There are many other suggestions in the book for managing the life of a reactive or aggressive dog, both at home and away. There are discussions about various tool options, and stories of successful training with dogs having various issues. This book is worth it's weight in gold!!!!!
While there is some excellent advise on how to work with aggressiveness in dogs and adjust that behavior in this book, it is not really meant for a beginner in clicker training (which I am). In fact, the basics of clicker training arent even discussed until way back in the first appendix on page 135!
The author gets a bit wordy with the technicalities of the methods, and how/why some dogs react the way they do, which is great information, but there isnt much on the BASICS of the clicker training used to redirect/reshape the dog's thinking/behavior, which is what I was looking for initially.
I do hope to put some of the advice given in this book to good use later on, but for a beginner, this is not the best book. For someone reasonable well versed in clicker training, yes, it is a great resource.
