Overview


An obedient dog is a happy dog in a happy family environment. The new edition of this instructive book gives dog owners insights into the canine mind, explains the various reasons why a dog is likely to misbehave, and describes humane and effective methods to correct bad behavior. Problems discussed include aggressive behavior toward visitors and strangers, jealousy of new babies arriving in a family, excessive barking, destruction of household objects, resistance to housebreaking, pulling on the leash, eating problems, and many others. The author also presents a chart listing 28 common breeds, with suggestions for physical exercise, capsule descriptions of temperament, and the type of owner the animal is best suited to--beginners, experienced handlers, or experts. The book is filled with color photos and drawings, as well as informative sidebars.
