I hope this is the right place. I recently ordered this book and finally got it. It's a lot thinner than I was expecting, but I started reading it and a few things caught me off guard. I wanted to see what other people thought about it if they've read it.

Thanks!

What caught you off guard?

It's a very short 84 pages, large typing on large pages, though. The first 60 pages are just basics like how to teach a dog to sit, how to pick a good service dog candidate, where I was looking for more information about training tasks. I'm just getting to public access and things in the book, which only looks to be about 15-20 pages of the book.

Most of it is pretty tame, and even these things are tame, but using a choke chain startled me a little, and rawhide, though she did go over both a bit more carefully. So I guess nothing major, but still not things that I would expect. Then, she mentioned purchasing additional identification online and didn't go into the reasons why it's unnecessary and often harmful.

Typing them down, they seem a bit lame, and as I said, it's mostly pretty general stuff, so nothing is completely off the wall, but a few things just stuck out to me as not my preferences, I suppose.
