Kilcommons advises dog owners that saying "No" to a dog is useless ISBN 0446521515. Metrodog: The Essential Guide To Raising Your Dog In The City (2001). My Smart Puppy (2006).

Kilcommons advises dog owners that saying "No" to a dog is useless. The reason for this advice is his belief that dogs simply do not understand the meaning of the word because it is too abstract for them. They are more likely to think that No is their name. Kilcommons explains that dogs are more likely to understand, and thus obey, commands connected with a specific action, such as "Off", "Sit", or "Stay". Such commands demand specific action from the dog and thus are more easily understood.

Shares advice on how to raise a well-behaved, well-adjusted dog in an urban environment, offering tips on everything from housetraining to preventing barking.
Thanks to this wonderful informative book, my dog and I have made a safe and happy transition from country woods to city streets without a problem. I loved the advice on elevator manners, taking taxis with your dog, behavior in stores and park, and the "distance down."
Not only is this book filled with helpful advice for raising a dog in the city, it is chock full of wonderful training advice for every dog everywhere. I highly recommend it.
Thank you Sarah and Brian, for this wonderful book, and thank you for your wonderful message board at greatpets.com
What really made this book special is the amount of original information and advice. It has great sections like helping your dog transition from rural to city life, which I loved.
In this thorough guide, Brian Kilcommons & Sarah Wilson tell & show us in a profusion of photographs & readable language, how to do everything from housetraining a puppy - when the sidewalk is 40 floors below & she has to go now - to preventing Rover from barking in a thin-walled studio apartment - to saying goodbye to a beloved & noble longtime companion. Packed with treats of proven training tips, Metrodog is the book every dog owner in every metropolis must have. From Finding Your Metrodog - To The Apartment Puppy - To Hitting the Streets - to Inner-City Youth - to Smooth Sailing - to The Older Metrodog, with a good Resources Section & useful Index. I enjoyed making my way through the exercises, most of which our Buddy-dog has already been trained in for years - even if he's a country cousin! Do consider this book the perfect gift when someone you know in the city gets a dog in their life. It will definitely give them some idea of what a city dog's life will be like!
I had been anticipating this book for some time - it's authors Brian Kilcommons and Sarah Wilson have a number of wonderful pet resource books to choose from.
I read MetroDog cover to cover very quickly and then went back and savoured it more slowly. This is a wonderful book for dog owners - all dog owners - but especially suited to urban dwellers.
The book design is well thought out - the photographs are great and the shaded and boxed areas are very helpful - full of good hints and advice.
EVERYTHING is covered - from choosing a pup for city living to training to behaviour issues. They have thought of just about everything that a dog owner needs to know.
I think this book is a valuable resource and I find myself referring to it often to look up little bits of information as I need them. As a veterinarian and a puppy trainer, I highly recommend this book. I can't wait for the next installment.
Few people writing about dogs today have as much hands-on experience as this team. This is the book that I recommend to those who adopt dogs from me. I know that the advice that new dog owners will glean from this book will be level-headed, responsible, practical and kind.
Metrodog covers issues that real dog owners face. How can I get my dog to behave well enough to take him on my day to day errands? How should I handle encounters with those who are mentally ill? How should I exercise my dog? The skills listed herein are practical and easy to teach.
I adopt my rescue dogs to families who will really love and care for them, and I recommend books that will help them to integrate their new dogs easily and painlessly. I recommend Metrodog wholeheartedly.
As a professional trainer living near Seattle I can't tell you what a gift this book is! And with rural areas becoming more crowded and "city" like it can be for every dog or anyone like me that travel with their dog. I live in the country, but my dogs are "city savvy" and so can all dogs with the help of this book.
I am also a therapy dog specialist and I volunteer with my dogs at hospitals and a new program called Reading With Rover at the King County Library in Bothell Washington. Anyone wanting to do therapy dog work should get Metro Dog as it's great advice for any dog and for those who want to volunteer with their dog in therapy work this book will get you and your dog going in the right direction.
The format of the book is easy, the wording is totally practical and any novice dog owner will appreciate this book and they should keep it by their nightstand. As with Kilcommons and Wilson´┐Żs other books it's flare for humor and common sense advice is much appreciated. As anyone with a dog knows you have to have a sense of humor and the right attidude and this book will help you find it!
I'm only sorry I can rate this book with five stars as it deserves a 10!
Starting out with a new puppy can be daunting enough if you have a lovely, private backyard. When you're twenty stories above the new pup's "toilet" area, it can be frustrating, exhausting, confusing, messy, and did I mention frustrating?
In their new book "Metrodog" Brian Kilcommons and Sarah Wilson guide the dog owner through every aspect of living happily with a dog in any city on this planet. The information provided spans the life of a dog in the city, from puppyhood right on through adulthood.

Afraid to take your dog to one of the city's public dog runs? Don't be! Reading Metrodog, you'll feel as though you've had a private tour of the busiest city dog runs. You'll be forearmed with tips that will help your dog and you fit in.
Dog training books can be dry. Not this one. It is such an easy read, enjoyable and with personal stories about the authors' dogs and real-life Metrodogs they've known. And, it is full of concrete information and facts, breed specific, age specific guidance and tons of photographs illustrating the prose.
Another dog book that won't just end up on my bookshelf. Metrodog is staying right out by my telephone for those emergency call I get from new dog owners who can't figure out how to get their puppy into the elevator, or back upstairs after their walk!
