Book release: Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out!

Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked OutToday’s the day: Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out: Training Crazy Dogs from Over-the-Top to Under Control has hit the shelves. Well, virtual shelves, as it’s online for now… but it’s out!

Of course I’m ridiculously excited about it, but I’m not the only one; so far it’s been called “a gem,” “very accessible,” “great,” and “kickass.” I feel quite clicked, actually!

(Remember, clicker trainers “click” behaviors they like — so being clicked is a very good thing!)

“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 great Agility Right from the Start

Newsletter subscribers found a discounted link in their inboxes this morning, but if you didn’t get one, you can find it at these popular retailers: Amazon (Kindle & paperback) | Barnes & Noble (Nook or other ereader) | Apple iBookstore coming soon!

But what’s it about? If you’ve missed the buildup (mostly on my behavior & training blog), here’s a recap:

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.
