Overview

Shape your pet into the perfect companion! The pet owner's version of Campbell's popular "Behavior Problems in Dogs" presents humane, effective ways of correcting common vices and clearly explains dog behavior, how dogs sense their world, how to communicate effectively with dogs, how to train a puppy, and more. Learn how to stop disruptive dog behaviors like coprophagia, phobias, whining, leash-straining, or dog aggression towards people or other dogs. Campbell also describes how the owner can inadvertently reinforce unwanted behaviors, which in turn creates a dog that misbehaves. The author describes humane and effective ways of correcting unwanted canine behaviors and how to successfully communicate with your pet. Campbell’s approach considers the instinctual and reflexive behavior of dogs to be of utmost importance if the owner is to understand and change the dog’s behavior. Once a dog owner understands how his or her dog thinks, annoying and dangerous behaviors can frequently be changed. The blame for bad behavior should seldom be placed on the dog, Campbell says. This exceptional book looks at how even difficult personality problems such as shyness, fearfulness, whining and sympathy lameness can be corrected. In addition, nutritional needs that can influence behavior, car sickness, and even the problems dogs face in old age, are considered.

Ideally, a copy of this book would accompany every dog purchase. The best way to solve problems is to avoid them, and Campbell’s training methods would save the patience and nerves of the new dog owner, the dog and the neighbors.

As a bonus, Dr. Bob (R.M.) Miller’s delightful cartoons help readers keep a sense of humor and perspective about their dog’s behavior problems.

Editorial Reviews

Bookwatch - Diane Donovan
Pet owners who face dilemmas in handling or training dogs will find plenty of answers in this book. The focus here is upon understanding the dog's psyche and needs; from what factors influence successful training routines to what causes a dog to misbehave. Various types of behavior from aggression towards babies and adults to digging and jumping on people are handled in chapters which survey all aspects of dog psychology; an invaluable guide, especially for new owners.
Pet Business - - -
This book serves as an invaluable tool for solving behavior problems and training dogs without inflicting pain or emotional stress on the animal. Owners will learn how to treat their dog with dignity, while preventing unwanted behaviors. Campbell has been helping dog owners through his private consulting service, magazine articles and pamphlet series distributed by veterinarians. In this book, he shows dog owners how to humanely develop the companion they've always wanted.
Colorado Libraries - Marcelyn D'Avis
Campbell tells us how dogs think and why they behave as they do. Dogs do think but not like humans. However, we tend to ascribe human qualities to our pets and thus assume the thinking patterns of dogs must be like ours. From this basic misunderstanding comes dog behavior which we find unacceptable and would like to change. Campbell explains that it is OUR behavior which must change. Our dogs will behave in an appropriate way when we interact with them in a way they can understand.
