Pam Whyte's Natural Dog Training book - Living With An Alien by Pam Whyte - Book Reviews:
"Pam Whyte's latest work will leave you with a distinct feeling that the mutt lying at your feet, on the sofa, or bed, knows more than you could ever imagine."District Mail.
"Pam Whyte sets out to help humans tap into and develop the instincts that a dog brings when it comes to live in our society, instead of trying to force them into un-doglike behaviour by imposing our will onto them, which usually confuses or even breaks a dog." Cape Times.
"Pam Whyte shows dog owners how to overcome behaviour problems by outlining practical guidelines to overcome them. She does this chiefly by showing the family how to help their dog adapt to his life-style and how to communicate in his own pack-tongue. This may sound deranged to the ignorant ear, but once explained, sounds a more positive bet than communicating through a host of often-aggressive commands. Pam encourages one to shift one's perspective and to get a "dog's eye view", advice that will enhance the pleasure of dog owning."The Citizen.
"Pam Whyte's 's book Living with an Alien is an amusing but perceptive book on animal perception and dog language." Farmers Weekly.
"Covering a variety of aspects, including commands, food, separation anxiety and others (there is even a chapter for those who don't like dogs), Pam Whyte's formidable knowledge of her subject is evident." The Citizen.
"Ideal Guide has humorous tone. Through more appropriate communication techniques, the confusion, which often prompts naughty behaviour, will be eradicated. The book is peppered with assertions about doggy behaviour which may not be the solutions you are expecting to find, but take heart - these culture shocks may produce startling results." The Citizen.
"Send right signals to mutt from mars. You need to apply the very simple principles of pack communication as laid out in Pam Whyte's book on Dog Language - Living with an Alien, so that what you say to your dog becomes congruent with what he hears. Once you understand your dog, your enjoyment of him will increase, and your relationship with him will be enriched." The Star.
"Dog training presupposes that dogs think like humans. Think again! But if you're prepared to let the dog dominate, then you might as well switch on the electric blanket, open the fridge, hand over the can opener and the car keys and move out to the dog kennel." The Star.
"Too much stress is placed on what dogs look like and making them do as they are told, instead of teaching families how to own dogs that they can enjoy, and that are easy to control, by helping them to fit in with their families." Cape Times.

"Pam Whyte, a world renowned authority on dog behaviour and psychology has unlocked the door to achieving a more co-operative and manageable dog. She has moved away from traditional methods of dog training and has developed her own very effective and successful program. The most unruly and aggressive of dogs respond to this innovative approach. Pam Whyte has addressed universities, training institutions, human/animal/interest groups and others on dog psychology and animal perception." Morely, Victoria , Australia.
"Pam Whyte has spent many years working with dogs, and encapsulated much of her wisdom in the 340-page volume.

John Scott, Cape Times.
