    There are a lot of good tips in Control Unleashed: The Puppy Program, but unfortunately it's so horribly organized it's hard to have the patience to find them. McDevitt is constantly referencing later chapters to the point that you wonder why she didn't change the layout so that cross references aren't necessary. The first 10 chapters easily are a muddy introduction. Honestly this type of book just drives me back to tried and true Don't Shoot the Dog. I was hoping for help to start a field dog, There are a lot of good tips in Control Unleashed: The Puppy Program, but unfortunately it's so horribly organized it's hard to have the patience to find them.

I was hoping for help to start a field dog, but I'm going to need to keep looking elsewhere I think. I need a decoder ring to pull things together from this book. Perhaps I could cut the spine and reorganize it myself, but it wasn't that great and I'm not that devoted.

    Aaaah, I love CU so much! I just reread this puppy book because I'm hoping to have my own puppy soon. The first time I opened it was last year when Faith and I had just had an abysmal JWW run at a local trial, and I was sitting in the car with her, trying not to cry, while we waited for Standard. I ended up in tears (but not the I'm-a-crap-handler-and-my-dog-is-a-crap-dog ones that had been threatening) because right on the first few pages, Leslie McDevitt told me exactly what I needed to hear: Aaaah, I love CU so much!

This whole book continually makes me feel better about my dog and more connected to the way her mind works. This puppy program has some fantastic advice and games for puppies (and adult dogs, as Faith could tell you) that I can't wait to try out with a puppy. I adore Leslie's writing style and the anecdotes she shares about her own dogs and her students' dogs to illustrate the games. If you have a dog, read this book!

    Great book - focuses on mostly preventative games The layout is odd at times in the way the book itself is laid out but the information is so useful that I’m not removing a star

    Fantastic book! I still have a lot I need and want to work on with both of my pups! McDevitt explains things very clearly and doesn't make you feel guilty about any issues you may be having with your pup. My favorite quote from the book: "I am always telling students with Border Collies that don't care much for other dogs, it's so common for Border Collies to not like other dogs, especially females, that we even have a name for it--BCBS (Border Collie Bitch Syndrome). And we didn't get these dog Fantastic book! I still have a lot I need and want to work on with both of my pups!

And we didn't get these dogs for them to have a fabulous time playing with other dogs, did we? We got them because we like the breed and it suits our competition needs well."

    I loved Control Unleashed for its principals and insights but, quite honestly, it took some time to get through it. This new Puppy version is much better written and contains equally valuable information. I finished it just when my new puppy arrived and I am rereading a few chapters as we speak.
