Veteran dog trainer Dale Stavroff offers a training program based on positive, but not permissive, methods...

Library Journal

Fact is, as I learned from reading his book, Mr. Stavroff, a former juvenile delinquent case worker, possesses tremendous insight and intuition about the human-canine relationship.

National Post, Linda Frum

Underlying everything in his book is that we’re the ones with the leads in our hands and therefore in control.

The Province

Roll over, Cesar Millan.  Dominance is not the way to a positive dog/owner relationship, says trainer Dale Stavroff in “Let The Dog Decide”.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Stavroff’s book offers a new approach.  It explains why being the dog’s alpha pack leader - the basic prescription for classical conditioning books - is an unnatural role for a human being and ultimately a losing proposition for the dog and owner.

Des Plaines Journal

You’ll learn how to work with your dog’s natural qualities, such as independence or natural curiosity, instead of against them.

“Penny, an explosive-sniffing dog belonging to Eileen Porter (center front), prepares to lead a team into the Goldendale High School following a bomb threat called into the school on Monday morning. The building had been evacuated around 10:20 a.m.  No bombs were discovered.”

Goldendale, WA     The Goldendale Sentinel     March 13, 2008

Thank you, Dale, for training the BEST dog I’ve ever owned.
