What is it about?

  • Is it difficult to motivate your dog to do what you want him to do, when you want him to do it?
  • Is your dog "too energetic" or "too distracted" to give you his best work?
  • Is your dog happy to run after squirrels in the back yard, but not willing to run on the agility course?
  • Is your dog's recall effective only if there isn't something more interesting nearby?
  • Is your dog willing to work only if he sees the bait bag or his favorite toy?
  • Is your dog "into" toys, but won't play tug with you?
  • Is your dog prone to the "zoomies" during an agility run?

If you answered "yes" to any of the questions above, your relationship with your dog needs strengthening. In Ruff Love, Susan Garrett shares her incredibly successful relationship-building program. Based on her years of experience working with dogs, the Ruff Love program is designed not only to help people dealing with "problem" dogs, but to help agility, flyball, obedience, and other dog sport handlers build a better working relationship with their current competition dog or their next performance prospect.

Even if your dog doesn't need the Ruff Love program, you'll find a use for Susan's famous training games—Gimme Dat Collar, 1-2-3 Game, Sit-Tug-Sit Game, and Hide & Seek—which are well documented in the book along with her highly effective recall training method

Reviews- "The Ruff Love program gave me the tools to build a great relationship with my very independent and confident puppy. That success has been the key to the wonderful pet Lacey has become and the terrific competition dog that she is becoming." —Anne Stocum and Lacey, Sheltie

"When my young dog was five months old, I had my hands full. She was extremely stimulated by motion and a bit fearful. Even in my small town, she could not function walking down the main street without lunging to the end of her leash constantly. After going through the Ruff Love program, I now have a dog that is very focused on me and can handle high levels of stimulation. We are still a work in progress but instead of having a dog unable to function in everyday life, I have a wonderful companion and performance partner." —Kathy Keats and Mojo, Border Collie

"The Ruff Love program can be a lifesaver for any rescue or re-homed dog. The boundaries provide structure that builds confidence in the dog in its new environment. Without Ruff Love I doubt Meg would have survived." —Mary Ann Kras and Meg, Border Collie
