Dr Ian Dunbar BVetMed, MRCVS ........ A little book with a big message. Without wasting words, Barry Eaton dispels the dominance myth and its insidious rank reduction programme, which is nothing more than an arduous task for owners to make their poor dogs lives a misery
Prof Ray Coppinger ....... Learning is best done by challenging the old mythologies and this book surely does that
Jean Donaldson, Author of "The Culture Clash", "Dogs are from Neptune" ........ Thanks for the opportunity to see your fantastic booklet. Excellent. We do have an uphill battle as the sheer amount of repetition of the Dominance concept has cemented it into the public mind.
Turid Rugaas...... Congratulations to the author! Finally a little simple and clarifying book about a very important and very misunderstood topic in dog training today. A highly recommendable book! And fun to read as well.
James OHeare Dip.C.B. Author of The Canine Aggression Workbook ....... Geared towards owners the arguments are nicely laid out. I am glad this book was written.
Dogs Monthly ....... Barry has brought together valuable research of how our dogs evolved and how they learn to live with us.
Our Dogs ....... Barry outlines the reasons why these more recent studies and findings turn on their head the long held view that owners need to mimic the behaviour of the dogs wolf ancestor, and expect the dog to live by pack rules.
Mrs M. Hampshire ......... Dominance: Fact or Fiction should be compulsory reading for all dog owners. I wish you well in spreading the very, very important message in your book. Oh to have read it ealier!!
MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW, USA....... How far is the dog from the roving packs of wolves in the past? "Dominance in Dogs: Fact or Fiction?" discusses the idea that dogs will try to become alpha males in their families, drawing their canine instincts. Studying wolves and comparing them to domestic dogs and how the habits differ are similar, Barry Eaton provides quite the thoughtful study on dogs and their dominance. "Dominance In Dogs" is a thoughtful collection, very highly recommended.
