For people who know nothing about dog behavior
This app is only good for people who know nothing about dog behavior,and are not going to read any books or spend any time learning. I downloaded this app because it was highly recommended, I read everything and watched all the videos (many of which did not demonstrate what they were supposed to, or were unavailable). This only took less than an hour or so. Not much information there,and what is there, is incomplete. Not worth the 99 cents. Better to read a good book,or take a class on canine behavior. But I guess it's good for people who know nothing, and know they will not take the time to learn anything unless it's in an app.
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
Love this app & sharing it with my clients. I did get a notice from Apple saying it needs to be updated for compatibility with any new iOS. I hope this happens
