My experience with Kevin and his Natural Dog Training method has been groundbreaking, influencing the work I am able to do with animals. He is an asset to the dog training community and dog owners worldwide.
I have specifically chosen Kevin’s methods to work with a young rescue dog with aggression. His progress has been exceptional, and an intelligent, engaging dog that was slated for death in a shelter, is now a valued, loving and loved member of our family.
I can’t imagine having this level of success with this animal without Kevin’s method of Natural Dog Training. It has allowed me to interact with my dog reaching his deepest feelings and helping him resolve them in a manner that is safe for him, and the people he interacts with daily. His future is bright indeed, and I owe this to Kevin.

Behan demonstrates that dogs and humans are connected more profoundly than has ever been imagined — by heart — and that this approach to dog cognition can help us understand many of dogs’ most inscrutable behaviors. This groundbreaking, provocative book opens the door to a whole new understanding between species, and perhaps a whole new understanding of ourselves.

The final section sets forth a training program with a special emphasis on coming when called.|
