"We've never had a Rat Terrier before and this book was worth every penny. It taught us a lot about why he acts as he does and how to train him. A must read for any Rat Terrier owner!"

"I have two Rat Terriers. Both are dynamic little bundles of energy. They are absolutely charming. Tremendously affectionate. And make wonderful companions. Plus, by nature, they are good watch-dogs and great at chasing off pests. My oldest Terrier has even killed mice and rats that were found at our family's farm (He will bring them and drop them in front of us, as if to say, "Are you keeping count? Well, here is another one!"}. Yet, for all that I have learned from experience about these energetic and intelligent dogs, this book provided so much more to know and learn. I enjoyed reading it. I learned from it. I applied what I had read to my own dogs, and the lessons taught really did work."
