" The Loved Dog method is nothing short of a revolution. Tamar Geller shows us a pathway beyond punishment, and reminds us that understanding and respect are the key words in dog training in the twenty-first century. Now these common-sense and humane principles are set out clearly in a single, accessible volume. "

When Tamar Geller asked me to write the foreword for this book, she did not need to reward me with a treat or some verbal affirmation as an inducement. I've come to know Tamar as an inspired teacher and life coach for dogs and their people, and I have seen firsthand the extraordinary results of her work. And more than that, the beliefs that underlie her work, and her life, are perfectly aligned with the mission of The Humane Society of the United States - and it's a pleasure, on personal and professional levels, to be associated with this work.

Respect for all beings, kindness not violence, an understanding of the intrinsic value of animals, appreciating a dog's dog-ness, building bonds between people and dogs that will last a lifetime - that's what keeps dogs with their families, and out of our nation's shelters for homeless animals, for a lifetime.

That's also what makes this book so much more than a dog-training manual. To be sure, you'll find a trove of practical information and tips inside. But Tamar won't tell you how to teach your dog to sit so much as teach you how to inspire your dog to want to sit. Like the best coaches, she'll help bring you and your dog together as a successful team.

At a time when people rightly recognize dogs as members of their families, dogs should indeed be treated with the respect and kindness we'd give any other member of the family. There is wisdom in Tamar Geller's words and approach.

The how of her method is simple, and the subtitle of the book says it all: The Playful, Nonaggressive Way to Teach Your Dog Good Behavior. The why of her method is even simpler: All dogs deserve to be loved dogs. And that is a worthy goal indeed.
