Job Michael Evans trained dogs for many years with the Monks of New Skete. After leaving the monastery, he started his own dog counseling business. This book is the distillation of many years of experience. Sadly, the author has passed away,so no new books by him will be forthcoming.
This book is an easy to read, and has a lot of practical advice about training your problem dog. He uses case histories of actual clients' problems to make his points. He outlines a program he calls RRRR - the Radical Regimin for Recalcitrant Rovers. It's a 20 step program that you institute for a month with your problem dog. It includes things like not letting the dog sleep on your bed, (while simultaneously insisting that your dog sleep in the same bedroom, just on the floor), a 30 minute long down each day (untrained dogs can be restrained by a leash which you sit on to keep control of the dog if it gets up, whines, etc), not allowing the dog to precede you out the doorways, plenty of exercise (and not just turning the dog out in the backyard), obedience exercises etc. Susan Garrett outlines something similar in her book, Rough Love. I can only assume she borrowed the idea from this author as his work predates her.
He has good advice on dealing with marking, inter family dog aggression (keep both dogs in the same room, on lead so they can't get to each other. By allowing or making one dog leave the room, you are giving in to the dogs demands). He also deals with dogs that growl at their owners (a growl is just a bite waiting to happen). He discusses the four alternatives you have for an aggressive dog: Live with the behavior as it is, try to train the behavior out of the dog, give the dog to someone else, or euthanize the dog. He clearly prefers to train the dog. By mentioning euthanasia, he tries to explain to the owner of an aggressive dog what the failure to address the dog's aggression will ultimately lead to. For the record, he isn't in favor of giving the dog away as he thinks it just passes the problem onto an unsuspecting person, resulting in the potential for real harm to a person or another dog.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of all of the great,, sound advice that is in this book. Buy it now for your library, if nothing else. The book is out of print, and it is unlikely to ever be reprinted or revised due to the author's passing.

This book addresses the importance of gaining the respect of your dog and how to move into a leadership position over your dog. So many obedience books & trainers discuss how to teach your dog to sit & down etc, but don't discuss what to do when your dog KNOWS the commands but chooses to ignore it. Praise/treat-only training works when you have a rabidly-eager-to-please dog and/or a person who naturally is a good leader or has good experience with dogs. But for the average dog-owner who I see allow themselves and their guests get trampled/mouthed/abused by their disrespectful dogs ("He's just excited!")this book could be a lifesaver for their dog that is headed for getting squashed by a car, or euthanized for biting a kid...for example.

Anyone who thinks that training a dog is only praise & treats and little to no reprimands--then good for you that life is so easy with your dog(s)---the foster dogs I reform might: sit/down/stay/come for your treat perfectly, then precede to runover your kid and steal his toys/food and bite him if he resists and then maybe eat the mailman for dessert. Dogs need to know their boundaries.

When the praise only type trainers can't reform out-of-control aggressive dogs, euthanasia is typically suggested.

The last behavior expert I met who specialized in "aggressive/problem" dogs had never had to euthanize a single dog in 16 years of operation and furthermore has to counsel and help dog "experts" who can't control strong-willed dogs. I noticed her style of operation is essentially what is in this book --- talk and relate to dogs using their own language.

Read this book, and recommend this book to other people with dogs.

I ordered this book on a recommendation, mainly for the chapter on retraining the recall. Yes, to some readers the training philosophy in the book may seem to be "old-fashioned" or "out-dated". However, even if you disagree with the author's methods, there is plenty of great information in the book that could easily be adapted to positive reinforcement training programs.

The "Radical Regiment for Recalcitrant Rovers" is very similar to the often-suggested "Nothing In Life Is Free" training (though the RRRR is more structured and strict in its approach). This 4 week program works hand-in-hand with the use of set ups to target problem behaviors. The author does a wonderful job of explaining how to plan a setup through examples and to-the-point advice(even including worksheets to help with this), and what factors could cause a setup to fail.

The author also covers training/proofing basic obedience commands, with some great advice on proofing the sit-stay. Of these commands, the greatest value is in the chapter on retraining the recall. The author walks the reader through a 6 week process of retraining the dog's recall command without the use of food bribes. There are no adversives used in the process; only leash-work.

Of other interest in the book is discussion on how to use one's voice appropriately. Throughout the book, the author talks about maintaining control over your voice, and how to use varying tones without changing your volume.

Overall, it's a great read (easy too - for all the information contained in the pages, the author is not overly verbose). Even if you disagree with the training methods promoted in the book, you will find many pages of helpful information that can be adapted to your preferred methods of training.

this is an excellent training book - it tells you what you NEED to do and how to do - not crazy try this and it might work - tough love kind of book - but it really does work - lots of great "set-up" in the book for training purposes - try it before you hire a trainer - you have to do the work anyway!!!
