Here's what reviewers have to say about this absolutely wonderful book:

FUN, INFORMATIVE, FUNNY AND A DELIGHT TO READ. Saturday Dogs and the Owners They Trained, by Susan Overfield is a wonderful read for any dog owner or dog lover...a delightful book which is not only fun and an absolute hoot to read, it is also packed with good sound information and advice as to how to train, and indeed, live with your dog...absolutely hilarious at times. There is no doubt after reading just a few pages that this lady knows what she is doing. Her keen sense of humor shines through on almost ever page. I found myself chuckling often and indeed laughing out loud several times...She has the skill and knowledge of animal behavior and the developed, workable techniques to help the dog, and just as importantly, the owner, which I found to be most helpful and educational...Even on the off chance that you learn absolutely nothing, it is still a great read! Highly recommend this one." D. Blankenship, Amazon Reviewer

A person and his loving and trusting companion "Saturday Dogs" recommends how owners and dogs can reshape their relationship into what it should be - that of a person and his loving and trusting companion. "Saturday Dogs... and the Owners They Trained" is a top pick for community library pet collections and for dog lovers in general. Midwest Book Review

You don’t have to be a dog-owner (let alone, be trying to ride herd on a three-month-old Weimaraner puppy) to appreciate the humor and acuity of Susan Overfield’s book...Saturday Dogs, named after participants in the author’s many Saturday obedience classes, offers engaging, funny and often poignant anecdotes about our canine companions and our often misguided and sometimes damaging attempts to manage them...I closed the last page, growled a firm “aaahtt” to Minnie as she was joyfully unraveling the rattan from my chair, and vowed to be a better communicator, for my dogs’ sake. Kristi Niemeyer, Lively Times

Susan Overfield makes a distinction between dog trainers and dog handlers, people who understand dogs, dog behavior and dog pack dynamics, and can work with dogs in a way that the dogsunderstand intimately and immediately. Overfield is the latter, and it is that knowledge and understanding she brings to training...Saturday Dogs isn't a classic dog-training manual. Rather, it's a book about the method Overfield uses to help owners understand and work with their dogs. Each chapter tells the story of one dog (or pack of dogs) and owner, and how Overfield helped them become a well-adjusted team...While many training manuals are dust-dry and boring, Overfield's writing is engaging and funny; she has a knack for story-telling. Her behavioral analyses and explanations are presented in a clear, straightforward manner... I would absolutely recommend her book to dog owners... Mark Oxbrow, Rambles

We all know book reviews are great...but what do real dog owners think of "Saturday Dogs"?
They all LOVE it...

"This is an awesome book. Susan has helped myself and my dog beyond what you can imagine!!" T.L.

"Great book! I opened it to glance through when it was delivered and didn’t put it down until I had read the whole thing." L.H.

"A most excellent book--not only entertaining, but worthwhile information for any dog owner." A. K.

"A wonderful book and insightful about the mind of a dog and how people often misread their own pet’s behavior. Can’t wait for the next book!" T. G.

"I loved Susan Overfield’s book, Saturday Dogs. I would highly recommend this book (and I have) to anyone, whether or not you own dogs. The first two dogs in the book described my dogs exactly. Great book." N. Z.

"Saturday Dogs...are the stories that everyone of us has experienced with our pets. Each story is a real life, different behavior problem that shows what great changes the dog can achieve when humans understand dogs and adjust their communication and actions. It's a joy to read, full of common sense, fun and funny, and since I changed how I am with my dog, he is so much happier. I can see it in his eyes and behavior. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart." E.M.

I’ve read your book, my daughter borrowed it and read it as well. I think EVERY dog owner should read it. I wish EVERY dog owner could meet you, learn your methods and help EVERY dog out there. Maybe then we would no longer need rescues. I look forward to such a day. A WONDERFUL book. C.S

Reader Rating (Barnes & Noble) ~~

All you dog lovers out there pour yourselves a glass of wine, settle in by the fireplace and enjoy this delightful book. Overfield's vignettes from her years of dog training are irresistibly hilarious, witty and poignant. Her love of dogs and shrewd understanding of the canine and human psyches is evident in every page...Can't wait for a sequel...

Listen to Susan - She knows Dogs. The anecdotes in 'Saturday Dogs' recreate, in a most helpful way, problems others have had and how she helped correct 'the dogs and their people!' Susan entertains, instructs, counsels, and encourages dog owners as she shares her expertise.

I learned to have greater respect for animal intelligence after reading Susan Overfield's book. Clarity, consistency, immediate response and effective use of the voice is the key to your dog's good behavior and contentment (it works on children too!) Not only will you learn something, but it's a great read. The stories that precede each chapter are touching, hilariously funny,and sometimes filled with empathy and pathos. If you loved 'All Creatures Great and Small', you will also love 'Saturday Dogs'!

There is hope for even the most unruly K-9. Susan has saved more relationships between owners and pets, the proof is in the reading! Sit down and enjoy,you will laugh as you realize you are not alone with your 'problem child'. There is hope--there is Susan Overfield!

Susan Overfield has an amazing insight into the behavior of our canine companions. She doesn't care a bit about our excuses for why we allow problem behavior to continue, her only concern is the health and well-being of our relationships with our pets--and she is not afraid to let us know about it. This book is not a 'how-to' so much as a dog expert sharing her knowledge of canine psychology, which ultimately gives the reader his or her own starting point for building a great relationship with that special furry someone.

Susan Overfield has done a great job on this book. It taught me a lot about about dogs and how they think. I laughed so hard throughout this book that I had to have my tissue box next to me while I read. I have SEEN dogs do these funny things she talks about. I have also been doing a lot of the things she says to do, and IT WORKS!! I can't wait for my parents to finish reading it so I can loan it to another friend I have with a dog. I will definitely tell more people about the book.

Susan Overfield does an outstanding job of relaying her stories of both dog and owner in this hard-to-put down, laugh-out-loud book. Every time I picked up the book, I got so absorbed, I felt like I was out there with them on a Saturday morning in Montana. Highly Recommended.

Here's your opportunity to get the book that has owners laughing out loud and dogs happily wagging their tails, and for only $16.95.
