Tales of Rescued Dogs
Bookmark and Share
We'll hear about why popular British novelist Harry Porter has started writing a series of delightful children's books about rescued dogs - all told from the point of view of the dog. For the second segment of the show, we'll talk about a different way of rescuing dogs - through training. My guest, dog trainer Toriano Sanzone will talk about the different styles of dog training. Many of the recent dog trainer guests I have had on the show, all promote using the style of dog training known as positive training. I'll give time to the other philosophy, compulsive training, and find out why some trainers feel the need at times to utilize more forceful methods.

As Harry Porter he has written a series of books designed to appeal to young and old alike under the collective title Harry Porter\'s Dog Tales. The first of these, the heart warming, award winning Tilly\'s Tale was released in November 2009 by 4RV Publishing, and the series is written in the hope of raising awareness of the extent of dog neglect and abuse in the world. The next book in the series, Dylan\'s Tale is scheduled for release in the summer of 2010. His other children\'s and young adult works include Arcadia 22Heavy -- Mayday and Alistair the Alligator. He works closely with Canine Psychologist/Behaviorist Brian Gallagher to ensure his dogs are the best possible \'canine citizens\' they can be. Together, he and Mr. Gallagher are currently writing a dog training manual Taming the Savage Beast, based soley on the \'Dog Perspective\', and this will be \'narrated\' by Tilly his pack leader. This book will be primarily aimed at those who have adopted rescued dogs and who may find it more difficult than usual to train their pets effectively due to the \'baggage\' that many neglected, abandoned and abused dogs endure before finding a loving home.
