We love our dogs as members of our family. Yet, many people feel frustrated that their dogs don’t behave the way they want them to. Instead of being the nice family pets that these guardians planned for, these dogs are destructive, disobedient, even aggressive. Generally, this is not due to abuse, or lack of attention. Instead, these problems arise because well-meaning and caring dog guardians fail to communicate the rules and boundaries that their dogs need. This failure is not these humans’ fault. They simply don’t have the information they need to know to communicate with their dogs that the people are in charge, and that there are rules to follow.

How to Have a Well Behaved Dog is a comprehensive book that explains everything you need to do to have that well-behaved dog that you’ve always wanted. In How to have a Well Behaved Dog, you will:
