About the book Doggyality: Cognitive Training for dogs & humans covers puppy training and obedience as well as behavior modification and socialization. Rather than choose strictly between Alpha or Positive Reinforcement, Doggyality employs strategies from each method. Another feature that separates Doggyality from other training guides is that it builds personal growth exercises into dog training. This helps families create trust-based responses to difficulties rather than emotional responses, thus building stronger relationships between people and their pets and with themselves.
