Written with Patricia McConnell and Karen London's extensive knowledge of both theory and practicality, (not to mention their sense of humor), it provides clear and workable ideas to make living with a pack of dogs fun and fulfilling. This is a great resource if you're looking for some dog training tips to create a little order out of the canine chaos in your home, or wondering how in the world you'll manage the entire pack for a walk around the neighborhood. Perhaps you're concerned that there is tension between two of the dogs in your pack or whether your dog's play might escalate into aggression. This expanded and updated booklet has the answers to those questions and many more. Written to help you maximize the joy of living in a multi-dog household, it emphasizes the use of ethology and positive training methods to teach your dogs to be polite and patient instead of demanding and pushy. Filled with practical ideas about keeping life fun in houses that have two dogs or many more than that, Feeling Outnumbered is a great resource for all multiple dog owners whether novice or professional."
