Overview

It happens all the time. Just when Max’s owner thinks she has him figured out, he exhibits a bewildering fear of the neighbor’s skateboard. Or, despite endless corrections, Bailey still refuses to understand that she doesn’t belong on the leather armchair.

Then there are the dogs that almost always behave appropriately and predictably but can still display a few surprise reactions in situations that disturb their routines. Houseguests might be ruining Buster’s sense of order — taking over his favorite room and distracting his humans from important things like fetch and dinner. And that dog park near Sadie’s new house is terrific, but she might be having a tough time understanding the rules of etiquette.

To all these situations and a hundred more, dog expert Arden Moore provides answers that clearly explain canine actions and reactions, and then helps readers with suggestions for modifying unacceptable behavior. For every canine misdeed, there is a human counter-response to fix the problem. Read about both sides of the story in these friendly questions and answers, taken from real-life situations with real dogs. There is hardly a behavior that will not have dog lovers nodding their heads in recognition.

The Dog Behavior Answer Book will solve the mysteries of canine shoe theft, food guarding, and grass eating for puzzled humans everywhere.

What a great way to learn how to better communicate with our dogs, and why it is they do what they do. This book addresses some quality questions with in-depth answers that help develop that strong bond with Fido. Arden’s writing style packages useful information in a fun and entertaining way.

Nick Sveslosky, Editor, Fido Friendly Magazine

“This concise, small-format book in a question-and-answer format takes you through puppyhood to greet-and-sniff to your aging pet. Baffling habits and destructive behavior are some of the many topics covered.”
