The Dog Writers Association of America has named Shaping Success as Dog Book of the Year for 2005 in the category of Training and Behavior.

Written by one of the world’s best dog trainers, Shaping Success gives an excellent explanation of the theory behind animal learning. Buzzy’s story both entertains and demonstrates how to apply some of the most up-to-date dog training methods in the real world. — Greg Derrett, Twice Great Britain’s Agility Handler of the Year, Silver Medalist, 2004 FCI World Cup of Agility
