A dog behaviourist's diary

This is a book that will make you laugh, make you cry and make you think in a way you have never done before. It explores both the canine “condition” and the human “condition” too, as many ‘dog problems’ are in fact ‘people problems’ but with more legs.

Based on real life personal experiences of dogs that have come through our behaviour clinics or classes, it is a brutally honest and completely open expulsion of experience and knowledge expressed with great humour, insight and raw emotion.

With tales of hilarity, happiness and success through to depression, grief, suicide and death, it brings to the reader a sense of perspective and compassion for others.

Born of experience based on a lifetime of work with animals and close involvement with over 10.000 puppies and dogs, around 15,000 people, the breadth of experience is plain to see.

The primary purpose of the book is entertainment that educates. Written in plain English, with easy to understand analogies, it is simple and enjoyable to follow. No technical knowledge of dogs or humans is required, to enjoy and learn from it.

Covering some of the most dangerous and worrying of behaviours, like dogs that bite people, dogs that aggress towards others, dogs that chase and kill things, puppy farms and many more. The range of this book provides something for everybody. It also covers the most common behaviour problems of all. There are some simple and effective solutions for some of the most challenging of behaviours, and it gives information on how to use or when to not use, our own technique for solving dog to dog reactivity, simply, effectively, kindly and almost instantly.

As well as real case histories, their problems and solutions, this book includes some hilarious and terrifying moments, from my own history as a dog owner. Encounters which may delight you or make you cringe along with me, as I share the stories and events that surrounded the major learning points, turning points or moments of clarity. How I came to think and feel the way I do about my dogs, other dogs and other people.


What could be better, puppies, dogs, people, laughter, success, heartache, real life quandaries, passion and finally, true love that conquers all. Literally.

"Funny & interesting book which is not only entertaining but also educational. Heartfelt stories that will make you laugh and cry. Want to see more of my Watson? Come see us on my You Tube Channel - Mrs Gingers Life. I could probably write a few chapters myself about life with a puppy lol. This would make a lovely gift for someone as well as yourself!" - K. Maitland

"I found the book to be both humorous and sad, but extremely informative." - Ebay User 'Rednose'

"More than a dog book. Denise lays bare the lows of life as well as the highs usually written about. Cloud and a cat flap must have been a sight to behold." - David L.
