Beyond Obedience is a revolutionary new training program for you and your dog from one of our country's foremost animal advocates and holistic practitioners. The idea that your canine companion is a fully emotional being and acutely sensitive to your changing feelings and moods is the foundation of April Frost's original and highly effective training program.One of the most difficult aspects of training a dog is clearly communicating your intentions. Beyond Obedience is the first book to work on the way you communicate with your dog, providing you with the necessary tools to truly understand how your dog's mind works and, therefore, how you can create an effective and mutually satisfying relationship.Drawing on her extensive experiences as an animal behaviorist, Frost teaches you that training your dog should not be a tedious chore limited to exerting physical and psychological control over an animal's drives, but instead an enriching and spiritually fulfilling experience--gratifying for both human and animal. Frost discusses such essential concepts as mutual respect, unconditional love, mental and emotional discipline, and your expectations and priorities. She shows you how the insights gained from working with your dog can have positive, far-ranging effects on many areas of your life. Beyond Obedience offers valuable insight into the emotional bonds that enrich the lives of animals and their companions.

It is tempting to dismiss Frost as a quack. Some of her experiences with dogs and clients are so marvelous I found myself not believing all of them. But, her approach to dog handling should awaken your spirit and inspire you to do better with your dog. Dog obedience is something that humans expect to come naturally from dogs. Frost, though, encourages her readers to earn that obedience by respecting the animal for what they are: dogs. She tries to convey that dogs, most times, have a will of their own. So, if that "will" is not acknowledged the dog will be a "different" dog. In other words, a respected dog is more obedient than a casually treated dog. I think she gives a fair presentation. However, for most dog handlers she would be considered a quack because she's asking her readers' to treat their dog better than they probably treat themselves. I enjoyed the book.

"Beyond Obedience" truly takes the reader beyond basic training methods. Ms. Frost introduces a new way of thinking about our dogs, their needs, and their intelligence, then guides us, through examples and exercises, to a higher understanding of canine psychology and personality. Only after helping us to gain that understanding does she tie this new-found knowledge in with "traditional" training methods, then teaches us how to apply both in the most effective way.
Filled with stories from her years of experience, the book sometimes leaves you smiling at canine antics, sometimes teary-eyed at inevitable failures. Yet, in the end, readers willing to work through the exercises to "connect" with their pets will come away with a much deeper understanding and appreciation of their canine companions, and training sessions are bound to become a pleasure for both handler and dog. Using even just a few of the methods, I personally achieved much greater success in training a very difficult puppy.

This was recommended to me when I first got my new dog and 4 years later I do go back to reference to it. Gives insightful details as to how "dogs work & function" giving me a better understanding as to why they behave the way they do......as dogs...not people.

This is an excellent book on teaching you how to communicate with your dog during training. It's well written in simple, easy to understand language and gave me a new perspective on training.
