Abstract:

Charismatic dog trainer Doggy Dan shares his insights and tips into how those principles can work effectively for bringing up children in this pragmatic and accessible new angle on parenting. What can a dog trainer teach us about parenting? Quite a lot it seems. Dan Abdelnoor, or Doggy Dan as he loves to be known, is a highly successful and much sought-after dog trainer, and dog whisperer. He gets amazing results and many people attest to how effective his programmes are u life-changing in fact. Dan now has two young children and he has realised that the principles that he uses in his dog training can be used with children very effectively. And no, he's not talking about commands like 'Go fetch' or Down, boy'. He discovered that the kind and gentle puppy training and dog training method that he teaches full time could become the foundation for raising his children. Dan's training method with dogs is to be calm, clear, gentle and without force. His mantra is 'First you must win their mind and then you can train the body'. Trust and respect are key to this and are equally applicable to children. As Dan says this book is not rocket science, it's a very practical and straightforward book with clear examples and lots of anecdotes that will change the way you think about your interactions with your children and, in fact, any other people.
