“Raising the Worst Dog Ever: A Survival Guide is an honest and wonderfully entertaining look at the complex relationship between a woman and her dog. Readers will not only gain a better understanding of their own dogs by reading this book, they will empathize with all the challenges as well as appreciate the pure joys of sharing their lives with these incredible animals.”
– Victoria Stilwell, dog trainer and behavior expert
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the audio version of “Raising the Worst Dog Ever.” An excellent combination of practical positive tips and a personal journey. This book is completely relatable and is a must read for all dog lovers. The challenges, triumphs, joys and heartache that we all experience as dog lovers is beautifully shared in this very down to earth and relatable book. Definitely a book you will not want to put down once you pick it up. Great training tips, resources complemented by excellent storytelling, I highly recommend this incredible book.

I have finally stopped crying long enough to write this review. Dale Ward has managed to accomplish a trifecta of brilliance, writing what is in equal parts a definitive dog-training manual, compelling novel, and ultimately a heart-wrenching love letter to that "heart dog" we have all had and who we carry with us daily. As a positive dog trainer myself, I can say that her advice and tips are all spot on, and she makes her points in an easily digestible, actionable manner without ever belaboring them. She is a born writer and I am so proud to travel in the same circles. I only hope this book is not her last. Kudos! FIVE STARS!!!
