This is one of the best informative apps out there for a better understanding of our dogs. It is one great app for learning to understand our dogs better. The information is advanced and anyone can learn from it or use it as great review if you are already an advanced trainer. I am personally enjoying it as I read through it and hope the author keeps updating and tweaking it for the ones that are putting it under a microscope. If you are an owner with not to much behavior under your belt this is one AWESOME app to better understand dog behavior and make your dog park experience less stressful. LOVE IT ! And there is a button to shut off notifications :) "Awesome information keep upgrading - go for it all calming signals - distance behaviors - body language ETC make it a professional guide :) " love it
A must for every owner who brings their dog to dog parks!
Many owners have noble but naive intentions when bringing their dog to dog parks. They assume all play and interactions are a good experience for their dog. This is not the case and Sue Sternberg has done an excellent job of educating and enlightening owners with her well thought out descriptions and video's in this App.
This App fills an important void in the dog training world and the more owners learn and understand, the better place all dog parks would be! And, the information is valuable for assessing any dog-dog interactions and play, even in your own backyard.
I highly recommend this App for every dog owner!
Amazing. Sue nails it!
I have been a dog owner my entire life and like most people I was shocked at how many behaviors our dogs display that we think are okay but really are not. Sue nails it with pointing this out and I thank her for it. And for those of you who complain that the dog parks are not listed in this app. where does it say it will give you these locations? That's not what the app. is for and I fear you are missing the point of what it is actually for. There are other apps. that are specifically for dog park locations go use them and stop moaning here!
