Is Secrets to Dog Training effective on really stubborn dogs? If you’re reading this article, it’s probably because you’re at your wits’ end with your dog, who insists on making his own rules.
He controls your behavior. He eats when he wants. He barks until he gets what he wants. He jumps on your furniture. He jumps on you when you come through the door. He jumps on your guests.
And he chews the heels off your favorite shoes.
In a nutshell, he’s making your life a living hell!
In desperation, you typed into Google’s search, “Secrets to Dog Training” or “Secrets to Dog Training Review” because you’d heard about this book and were wondering if it’s really an effective dog training book for stubborn dogs.
What Is Secrets to Dog Training?
Secrets to Dog Training is a 256-page, downloadable eBook written by professional dog trainer, Daniel Stevens. It’s unusually detailed and jam-packed with ideas and techniques all the professionals use. It teaches you how to prevent and deal with some of the most common behavior problems like:
- Aggression with Other Canines
- Food Aggression
- Aggression with Children
- Pulling on the Leash
- Jumping on People
- Separation Anxiety
But wait. I digress.
How did I find out about Secrets to Dog Training?
I’ll tell you a really short, but true story. When I got my first dog Lily, I was clueless. I didn’t know she needed to be trained. I didn’t know I was supposed to make rules. I didn’t know Lily was supposed to follow my rules. I didn’t know she was supposed to actually obey me.
My dog Lily walked all over me – until I got desperate.
I looked online for dog training books, but I didn’t know what “training” my dog needed. I knew she barked all the time when I left the house. She “talked back” to me when I would tell her to get off my bed.
She jumped on my furniture, chewed my shoes and decided when she would eat. Basically, she ran the house. She was the leader and I was the follower.

What Does This Product Do?
This book teaches you how to take command and make your dog respect you. It teaches you first and foremost how to be the alpha dog – which gives you confidence. It also trains you to behave differently with your dog so that he listens to you – not sometimes – but all the time.
Downloadable 30 Minute Video
Because this book comes with an easy-to-follow 30 minute video, you get to experience real-life examples of dogs behaving badly, and the principles of Secrets to Dog Training being put into action.
The video gives you real solutions to specific, difficult problems created by stubborn pets. Videos are always best because you get to see if you’re implementing the techniques correctly.
How is the Book Layed Out?
The book starts off by providing new dog owners with advice on how to choose a puppy and from where to adopt them. It also guides the new or prospective owner on how to select a breed, breed information, how to proof your house and house training. It also talks about what to expect on your first vet visit and how to prepare for your visit.
Does It Address Stubborn Breed Problems?
The advanced section covers hard to solve problems with certain breeds (hmmm… think Jack Russell Terrier) like aggressive behavior, dominance, chewing, digging, barking and jumping.
After dealing with tough to solve issues, the book then thoroughly discusses dog health care, such as what to do about allergies, fleas, heat stroke and more. Finally, the book covers advanced commands and tricks in masterly detail.
Does it Cover Dog Whispering?
To my surprise, yes.
The best part about this book is that it covers Dog Whispering in detail. In fact, there’s an entire section dedicated to this method of training. In case you’re not familiar with the concept, dog whispering is a method of dog training based on the philosophy of clear communication and mutual respect.
It’s a newer method of dog training. But it’s one of the most humane methods of dog training – right along with clicker training. You get step-by-step instructions for basic commands like sit, come, down, stay, quiet, etc.
But Does it Work on Stubborn Dogs?
Absolutely! Like I said, I now have 2 Jack Russells and I’ve used all of the techniques on my dogs. Jack likes to bolt out the door. This caused a dangerous situation, until I started implementing the strategies in Secrets to Dog Training. I use the techniques on Jack and Jill all the time.
It works like magic.
And everyone knows how difficult Jack Russells can be to train due to their independent, bossy streak. I highly recommend this book. But there’s one more thing I need to tell you about this product.
