Dog Training- Pet Friendly: Understanding and Caring For Your Pet - Julia Barnes (book review)


Book: Dog Training- Pet Friendly: Understanding and Caring for your Pet
Author: Julia Barnes
Genre: Non-Fiction
Published By: Magnet & Steel USA Inc.
Published Year: 2011

My Review:
Getting a new puppy soon I thought it would be good for me to take a look at a dog training book just to remind myself of some training techniques as I haven't had to train a dog for years.

This book is very easy reading and does go over things in which people already will know wither they have a dog or not as well as going over how to do certain tricks such as: Sit, Lie Down, Wait and more. By having a step-by-step way of doing this it helps new trainers to be able to do these tricks easily and effectively. This book also did have some dog sports in which I was not aware of and am interested in so I am happy that it focuses not only on show dogs and dog dancing but also other sports such as Flyball. By also having an index at the start of the book so that people can get to the section in which they are looking for easily I think that this is a good thing and will help everyone from really basic training commands to just knowing if this is the book that is right for them. Finally, I do think that the pictures in which is throughout this book are really nice and actually help the reader to see how the trick is performed or what the sport is as well as some training techniques.

Overall, I would recommend this book to those who are wanting to train a young dog and those who are looking for a book which is easy to follow.

My Rating: 4/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else. I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the stude

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
