As a certified animal behavior consultant, some of the most common canine complaints have to do with multi-dog households. Most dogs get along great! But when you have a snarly-growly issue that's dangerous, or simply an aggravating behavior (jumping up?) that knocks you for a loop--literally--you'll need help. Not everyone has access to a behaviorist or--let's be honest here--can afford to enlist the aid of a professional trainer or behaviorist to help. So I've written this series of ComPETability books to offer basic how-to step-by-step advice to help you take control back in your own home.
And yes, there's also a ComPETability: CATS to CATS and ComPETability: CATS & DOGS books available to help those multi-pet households as well.
