As a dog lover, past owner of poodles, and a current “Human” with a new canine companion, Esther, I can honestly say that this time, I’m getting off on the right paw, with Saro’s dog training, and book! Esther, our 6 month old poodle puppy, was biting, barking and driving us a little nuts, until I called Saro at Jonah’s Ark. After the puppy training program, and solidifying our new understanding about the Human and Dog relationship from Saro’s book, I can honestly say that Esther is calmer, happier and much more relaxed, and so are we! I highly recommend this book to any current dog owner, and anyone considering adopting a dog into their lives. Saro’s dog training philosophy is simple, makes sense, is compassionate to both dog and human, and is easy to incorporate into our busy lives. Thank you Saro!!

It clearly articulates each dog’s needs and the training techniques which will meet those needs. Saro offers many helpful training tips to modify any dog’s behavior thereby achieving a healthy and happy relationship between you and your dog.
