"Having recently bought your book and eagerly reading it and putting into practice your invaluable advice, what a revelation!" Jan.
"I have a 16 week old kelpie cross puppy - I live on a farm in the Outback - and purchased your book Living with an Alien. The book was a real revelation. It has been most helpful! THANK YOU!! Will you be doing a lecture tour of Australia ?" Anne.
"I have just borrowed your book
"Living with an Alien" from my local library. After
laughing myself silly reading Jake Russell's contribution
(and also recognizing all the things he said) and
enjoying the cartoons - excellent - I got down to
the serious business - learning from your experience."
"If I could get across to dog owners in the same way as your book came across to me, I should have some success." (Dog trainer.)
"I am in the process of reading your excellent book on Aliens, and would very much like to have the video that goes with it." David.
"A few years ago you wrote some articles in the newspaper which I found extremely helpful. I tried some of your techniques on how to handle dogs and found it worked 100%. As a result of this, I bought your book Living with an Alien, and find it excellent. I can recommend your book to any animal lover and would like to thank you for your help. I thrust there will be more books written by you in future." Secretary of the Bull Terrier Club.
"This is the best dog book I ever came across." Ingrid.

"I have personally had success with applying your methods for my Beagles - particularly the feeding aspect." Reader, Botswana .
"After only a weekend of applying a few of your rules, there is a definite improvement in Mish and Stevka (and me). They are long haired Weimaraners. Only now do I realise how they dominate me! And I also understand now why they have so much respect and love for my mother who is 90!" Nellie.
"Your book has given me much needed information on how to make Bozo a more enjoyable pet, and myself a more understanding owner." Sylvia.

"A very comprehensive book." J Fisher.
"Thank you so much for bringing around a copy of your book. I thought that my dogs had to be put to sleep - now I see that it is I who has to be put to sleep. I no longer go around kicking cupboards and slamming doors, my dogs have stopped fighting and my ex-wife is moving back.

"Thankyou very much indeed for such informative and interesting reading. I really have learnt a lot." Mrs. Eksteen.
"Living with an Alien saved the lives of 2 children on Sunday. They came into my yard to fetch their ball. My large male dogs had been going to dog training, and were getting more and more vicious. They did not tolerate children. They were also very aggressive toward anyone who came into their yard. The programme I learnt from your book was starting to work, and I was starting to get a measure of control over my dogs. Then I happened to see the children jump off the wall, and after reading your book, told them to stand quietly with their hands over their faces. The dogs left them immediately!
"Living with an Alien" is a LIFESAVER. I really cannot express myself strongly enough as to how important it is for dog owners to read this book." Jeanne.
"We lent your book to friends whose dog was completely unmanageable and within days they found a remarkable transformation in their dog's behaviour." Len.
"The dogs and cats have met and are settling well. We just did what your book says about not joining their hunt! So all is well." Amelia.
"Thank you for a delightful, entertaining and educational book - a pity it's not compulsory reading in schools for prospective dog owners!" Edith.
"I really enjoyed your book very much as it is excellent." Mrs. Fourie.
"Thanking you kindly for a wonderful book." Miss Lala.
"Your book is one of the best books regarding dogs I have read. A book I will recommend." Mr. Steinhaus.
"The book is very interesting and things are improving, in fact he is becoming very obedient." (No name.)
"We thoroughly enjoyed reading your book and have found it very valuable." Eric.
"The book is fantastic - I am really enjoying studying it." Sally
"I find your book both instructive and amusing. P.S. How can I teach my dogs to read?" Mr. Downs.
"Jeanne says her dogs are knew people." Jeanne's friend.
