Long known as a dog coach to the stars, Tamar Geller changed the way Americans relate to their dogs with her bestselling book The Loved Dog. Her approach is simple and down-to-earth. Instead of utilizing negative and often painful feedback, Tamar recommends love, play, and mutual respect as the keys to a happy home for dog and human alike. Now, Tamar makes her Loved Dog (TM) Method accessible for everyone with this day-by-day guide that will lead you through the first thirty days with your new dog, or help you make a fresh start with your current dog. Drawing on her studies of wolves in the wild and basing her method on the principles of child development, Tamar uses an "instincts versus choice" approach that satisfies a dog's Seven Basic Needs and will result in a pet with good manners.--From publisher description.

I really appreciate the Loved Dog methods, but Geller's organizational methods bury the information in blah, blah, blah. She could learn a lot from the Monks of New Skete, if not about dog training, at least about how to write a dog training manual.

Couldn't finish as the introduction space kept misquoting studies, referred dogs to being the same as wolves, insulted Milan's techniques almost openly... then promoted the use of more abstract (and ineffective) uses of "dominance" to convince your dog of your superior status.

Good text to use in combination with The Canine Good Citizen and Living with Your Dog, by the Volhards. Similar to Cesar Millan.
