Falmouth, MA. (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
National dog bite prevention expert Melissa Berryman recently won a five star rating from Clarion Review on the literary website ForeWord Reviews for her book People Training for Good Dogs: What Breeders Don’t Tell You and Trainers Don’t Teach. Berryman shares her 20 years of experience as a dog bite prevention specialist and helping dog owners understand and overcome the inherent pitfalls that produce liability disasters.
Berryman’s book informs pet owners about the often omitted but crucial differences between the behavior of dogs and that of people. As Clarion Reviewer Cheryl Hibbard points out, “Clearly written, and repetitive where it needs to be, People Training for Good Dogs is not the average 'sit, stay, speak, roll over' manual for training dogs. Berryman’s approach is deeper, and her goal is broader. She teaches owners how to gain confidence and control over their dogs, how to solve problems, and how to avoid serious safety and liability issues."
People Training for Good Dogs also delves into dog care, safety, instruction and owner support. As a former animal officer, Berryman believes dog owners should be proactive about protecting their families, pets, and liability as well as promoting community harmony. She explains, “Too many dog owners are set up to fail because of mixed societal messages, antiquated and just plain bad advice. Gaining correct knowledge and skill results in significant decreases in dog-related injuries and the resulting lawsuits."
In People Training For Good Dogs, Berryman shows how many of the unfortunate injuries involving dogs are caused by human actions and so are preventable. She also gives pet owners techniques and exercises for avoiding and diffusing situations which sometimes lead to dog bites. Hibberd adds, "Her ideas challenge what most owners have heard and learned before, but her arguments make sense. Anyone who now has a dog or is contemplating getting one will benefit from reading this book. Anyone who owns a 'problem' dog needs to read it right away."
Berryman is also the founder of The Dog Owner Education and Community Safety Council and the owner of the People Training for Good Dogs instruction and care facility in Falmouth, MA. As a trusted media resource on pets, she regularly shares her expertise at expos and conferences around the country by giving easy-to-understand tips for avoiding lawsuits, losing homeowner’s insurance and having to give up beloved pets.
