The book to buy!
"I highly recommend this book! I've been involved with Sheltie Rescue for 12 years, and we rehabilitate puppy mill dogs and unsocialized dogs which are always afraid of anythng and everything. Also, I co-teach a class for shy/fearful dogs at our local Humane Society. This is the 1st book I have found that covers EVERYTHING needed to know to work with or help these dogs! Plus, it's an easy read and humorous!"
