"Dogs thinketh not like people, but rather like dogs. Monique Anstee gives dog owners better insight into what makes their best friends tick. From better understanding springs better relationships. And really, that's what all dogs and their owners deserve." --Marc Goldberg, co-author of Let Dogs be Dogs with the Monks of New Skete
"Monique offers the culmination of years of wisdom not only from her own experience, but from that of her mentors as well. Going beyond the simple 'how to' of dog training, As a Dog Thinketh is a manifesto for living and working harmoniously with dogs." --Tyler Muto, world-renowned dog behaviour specialist and president of the International Association of Canine Professionals
"Anstee's book explains the gap between getting the obedience exercises and having a well-balanced dog that is both a good dog and a pleasure to live with--all the time . . . Whether you are a trainer with paying clients or a competition/performance handler who does agility, herding, obedience, etc., or simply a dog-loving owner who wants to improve the relationship with your dog--this book is a must have. It belongs on every shelf of every dog owner and trainer. Trust me, it's the best investment you can make in your dog and yourself." --Australian Shepherd Journal"An easy to read support manual that didn't preach but rather gently pushed me towards paying closer attention to [my dog] . . . and checking in with myself and how I was behaving." --Dana Gee, Vancouver Sun"Excellent book . . . Chock-full of clever daily philosophies, Anstee's no-nonsense approach and great sense of humour are what's been missing from many training guides. Her advice is honest and refreshing, and after working 25 years in the dog training business, her wisdom is completely sound, offering a wonderful perspective on how to nurture and develop your relationship with your best furry friend. A must read for dog people!" --Modern Dog
