• An off-leash dog races straight at you and your dog, in attack or play
• A speeding bicyclist barely misses hitting you
• Your dog jumps on a passer-by while you are distracted
• A panting, passing runner causes your dog to go ballistic from the aggressive, fast invasion of her space

Sunny Weber will help you enjoy the outdoors with your furry friend—safely!
I truly enjoyed reading Sunny’s city dog walking and etiquette book. I live in the city and my dog can be a bit skittish. Thankfully, her randomly jumping into the street when she’s startled seems to be a phase she’s grown out of. I’ll admit it was a bit unsettling when I thought about walking her.
Through this book, I learned several key actions to help my dog be a better walker as well as behavior modifications I could teach her that have made our walks much more enjoyable. I also learned how I could be more aware and anticipate situations thus helping us to avoid them.
The author is knowledgeable and presents this information in an easy to understand and implement format. I appreciate that her books are written from the perspective of what the dog and their person need to be successful and avoid unnecessary dangers. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves their canine and strives to have the best walks possible.
