So let’s look at the 3 key components…
1. Secrets to Dog Training – Stop your Dog’s Behavior Problems!
What Is It?
Secrets to Dog Training presents an unusually detailed and thorough look at how to both prevent and deal with the more common problem behaviors exhibited by dogs. As the owner of a moderately troublesome mutt myself, I’ve spent a fair amount of time searching the Net for reliable resources on this topic, and I have to say that the level of knowledge and detail contained within the pages of this compendium is unusually exacting for an online book.
Not only that, but – again, unusually for this medium – the information at hand is actually (gasp!) reliable. Yes, that’s right – this one’s a whole new kettle of fish. Written by a seasoned dog trainer, you can relax in the knowledge that all the tips and advice included are tried and true, and come from Stevens’ real-life experiences as a professional dog trainer.
There’s a pretty impressive range of information packed into this guide. It’s not just the problem behaviors that are covered: the book starts off with new-owner advice (how to choose a puppy/dog, the best places to get one from, breed information, puppy/dog-proofing your home, etc) and then moves on to the more advanced stuff: behavioral problems (such as aggression, dominance, separation anxiety, to name a few), intermediate-level obedience commands, health-related dog problems (allergies, cat/dog coexistence, fleas, and so on), and advanced commands and tricks. There’s even a pretty impressive section on dog whispering!
It makes for some pretty interesting reading – and, after trying out the basics on my own recalcitrant pooch, I was amazed at how effective the techniques suggested are.
2. The Ultimate House Training Guide
What Is It?
This handy manual is a comprehensive guide to what’s arguably the most widespread, challenging, and frustrating issue faced by any and all dog-owners: house training. Has any aspect of dog ownership ever been so widely misunderstood and unanimously dreaded?
Theories positively abound on this topic. You can find conflicting arguments almost anywhere you look on the subject, whether it’s online (oh, the staggering variation on the “The Only Way To House Train Your Dog!? theme to be found here!), at your local library, through contact with dog trainers, or through the (less reputable but nevertheless prolific) ranks of “quack” dog trainers.
What Sets This Book Apart?
After several years spent trawling through the conflicting information on this subject, I was relieved to finally find “The Ultimate House Training Guide” eBook, by Martin Olliver. As the title suggests, literally all aspects of the subject are covered, in an easy-going manner. It’s kind of like having a friendly conversation with a knowledgeable canine behaviorist, with the added benefit of being able to review the conversation at any time, simply by scrolling.
The tone of the book is a welcome contrast to what’s available elsewhere: it’s friendly, informative, and above all, full of common sense. No gimmicky recommendations, poorly-disguised marketing ploys, or too-brief Q&A sessions here: you don’t have to be experienced in canine behavior and training to see that this guy knows what he’s talking about (and did I mention he’s a vet?)
What’s Actually Included?
There’s a quick section on the tools of the trade (“patience, persistence, consistence, and common sense?) along with some morale-boosting advice on how to keep your cool through the training process, and then it’s straight into the meat of the matter: the nitty-gritty on how to house train, with a detailed section (one for pups, one for older dogs) on each of the three methods recommended; paper-training, crate-training, and the direct method.
Next, health-related problems are covered in some depth. There’s a section on congenital problems (problems your dog was born with); a section on the disease-related problems that develop later in life; and a section on other problems related to house training, like inappropriate outdoor elimination, or lawn-burn from urination.
Finally, there’s the Top Ten Tips for hassle-free house training, which is essentially a recap of the most helpful and necessary attitude adjustments, practical tips, and useful nuggets of general knowledge which will come in most handy in your dog’s training.
Just Because It’s Detailed Doesn’t Mean It’s Confusing
Sound like a handful? It’s actually very user-friendly. Not only is this book packed with sound practical advice, but the whole thing is laid out in a very logical and easy-to-understand format: the tone is light and non-threatening and it proceeds in a logical manner from step to step, with the assistance of helpful how-to illustrations.
3. The Ultimate Guide to Dog Health
Knowing when to take your dog to the vet and when to let him “self-regulate? is a pretty tricky business – how do you tell when he needs to see a professional? After all, it’s not as if you can rely on your dog to let you know.
Nobody likes forking out $80 for a needless visit to the vet, but then again no conscientious dog-owner can bear to contemplate their dog’s suffering, either! Frankly, it’s a bit of a quandary.
I’ve owned dogs on and off my whole life, and this is still something that I’ve never been 100% comfortable with: of course, I’d always rather be safe than sorry (a viewpoint which has resulted in many, many unnecessary trips to the vet over the years, just to set my mind at rest) … but I’ve also always wished for the kind of solid grounding in canine medical basics which would enable me to confidently decide for myself when my dog needs to see the vet – and when I can save both him and myself the hassle!
Stress-Free Dog Care
You can imagine the relief I felt when I read The Ultimate Guide to Dog Health, by Malcolm Fields. It was uncanny: this guide is exactly what I was looking for. It’s complete and detailed, covering all the common health problems that dogs suffer from; the overall focus is on being prepared and taking preventative action; it teaches you how to accurately self-diagnose with the assistance of step-by-step flowcharts which tell you whether he’ll be fine by himself, whether he needs to see the vet, and how urgently the vet should be seen. Plus, while it’s packed with knowledge and advice from veterinarians and trained dog-care specialists, it’s easy on the eye and reader-friendly … you can actually understand what they’re trying to say!
In a nutshell, it’s detailed (but not dauntingly so), comprehensive (covering all the common ailments and illnesses), knowledgeable (while retaining a conversational, easy-to-understand tone) and it gives you the kind of introduction to canine healthcare that’ll allow you to take good care of your dog – without spending unnecessary time and effort trying to absorb the jargon of a veterinary textbook!
My Favorite Part
While it’s great to learn about canine anatomy and medical problems, the thing that I wanted to know more than anything else was: How can I tell how serious the problem is, and when do I need to take my dog to the vet?
So I was particularly happy to note the presence of the many and detailed symptom charts, which were designed especially to help owners make solid decisions about their dog’s health-care. Each chart starts from the specific symptoms of a particular ailment (you just follow the “branches? of the flowchart, depending on the symptoms that your dog has) and tells you the recommended path of treatment for each one, as well as advising whether veterinary care should be sought – and if so, how urgently. Pure genius!
I Love Freebies (Who Doesn’t?)
There’s just something about getting something for nothing. And, although my magpie-like acquisitiveness may have led me into less-than-productive purchases in the past, in this particular case I’m happy to report that The Dog training Mastery Multimedia Package hasn’t let me down: the freebies included with this package are not only numerous, they’re actually useful(wow!)
The Dog Training Mastery Multimedia Package costs $99.95. For this price, you get the three complete and detailed manuals on training your dog, preventing and handling behavioral problems, house training, health care, and a whole bunch of general-knowledge tips and advice.

The Dog Training Mastery Multimedia Package: A Thumbnail Sketch
Altogether, I’m pretty impressed with this package. I’ve owned dogs on and off my whole life, starting from when I was ten – I would have thought that I was better-prepared than most to handle the quirks and caprices of my canine friends.
But since scoring this package, I think my pre-The Dog Training Mastery Multimedia Package self was (embarrassingly) perhaps a trifle more complacent than knowledgeable – I’ve learned more since using these products than I’ve picked up in a near-lifetime’s worth of contact with dogs (do you know how to stop your dog from tugging on the leash, without using a check-chain? Well, I do – but until I got my hands on a copy of this package, I certainly didn’t!)
Several of the training techniques present a refreshingly common-sense, down-to-earth approach to dog training; others require a little more effort (take dog whispering as an example) but yield some pretty dramatic results. I liked the way that more than one training technique is detailed, to allow the reader to pick and choose the techniques that best suit themselves and their individual dogs.
I have no qualms in recommending this package to anyone who owns, or is thinking about owning, a dog. You don’t need to have a “problem pet” for the manuals to be of assistance: there’s information included that’ll be useful to any and all dog owners.
In a nutshell: very highly recommended.
