Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out: Training Crazy Dogs from Over-the-Top to Under Control

"I'm loving it! Laura has managed not only to write a clear and incredibly important book, she's really funny too! Her way of writing, the images in her language, and the diagrams make this book really stand out; there's no way to misunderstand the concepts she's presenting."
-- Emelie Johnson Vegh, co-author of the bestselling Agility Right from the Start

Some dogs need a little help.

Some dogs are afraid, or excited, or reactive. Dogs that "don't listen" and "go crazy" don't live the lives we -- or they -- want.

Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out can change that. Simple steps and an accessible, conversational tone from award-winning, internationally-known trainer Laura VanArendonk Baugh CPDT-KA KPACTP make calming the agitated dog not only possible, but pleasant.

Inside you'll learn how to

  • Achieve change in short, simple training sessions of a minute or less
  • Maximize the effects of natural brain chemistry
  • Know when to call in medical help
  • "Clean up" unreliable behaviors in both overexcited sport dogs and pets at home
  • Recognize how fear, aggression, and excitement are variants of the same root problem

The conversational tone is both informative and fun - very accessible, and it feels like the reader has a consulting trainer standing at her shoulder! Bring your dog from emotional to thoughtful, and enjoy a calmer, more enriched life with your best friend.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

An Amazon bestseller in its full first week! This book isn't for everyone -- but if you or someone you know has a dog who is a handful, too excited or too afraid or too out-of-control, this book can help you. Check out the reviews!

On Amazon bestseller lists since its release! Sold over 1000 copies in its first 28 days! Check out why this book is being recommended by trainers, vets, and behaviorists all over the country!

"This is definitely going to be one of my go to books for dog training clients. It's well written, humorous, and breaks things down into simple steps. The anecdotes and analogies make it straight forward and easy to understand, without needing a degree in psychology."

Got a dog which your friends describe as hyper, aggressive, afraid, shy, or protective? Did you know these are often all symptoms of a similar root cause -- and it's not a lack of leadership on your part?

Check out Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out for straightforward help. Real science in easy-to-apply steps!
