I have just bought the new Jean Donaldson books, I haven't received them yet but I am a big fan of hers. "The Culture Clash" is a must have in the canine training world.
Anyone else a fan of hers?

Yes....and no. I'm an information junkie :o and I'm afraid I own just about every one of her books...and seminars on DVD. I really do like the info she provides in detail but, reading is one thing, putting what you've learned into practice is another. She is extremely helpful though. I once emailed the sfspca (where she was the director) to get some info about a school she started here in Montreal years ago. She responded herself within minutes. She's clearly passionate about dogs and is eager to help and share her knowledge with others :thumbs up.

I have read a couple of her books. I find she is a wealth of information, I find a lot of what she says really resonates with me, However, I don't find them super easy to read, and the format is hard to apply if you have a training issue.

Wow, I'm glad to hear she's doing so well! She used to volunteer at the SPCA Monteregie when she lived in Montreal...
