The Well-adjusted Dog
Dr. Dodman's Seven Steps to Lifelong Health and Happiness for your Best FriendBook - 2008
Animal behaviorist Dodman draws on years of clinical experience to bring together the art--and science--of dog ownership. 42% percent of dog owners report problems managing their dogs' behavior. But as Dr. Dodman points out, almost every dog problem can be either treated or, better yet, prevented. Here, he offers what he calls "continuing education" for dogs and their owners. A comprehensive, seven-step approach takes on the whole dog--his health, behavior, and environment--and lays the groundwork for the proper care and training of our best friends, for life. You will discover: how much exercise your dog really needs (and why); how diet can affect behavior; how to communicate clearly with your dog; how to lead your dog, not dominate him; and how to prevent or deal with your dog's fears.--From publisher description.
