Written with wit, wisdom, and compassion, this easy--to--use A--to--Z reference is a godsend for dog owners and prospective dog owners.
Dr. Nicholas Dodman, expert animal psychologist and acclaimed author of The Dog Who Loved Too Much, gets us inside the minds of our pets to learn what makes them do the crazy things they do.
From aggression to zoonosis and just about everything in between, Dr. Dodman draws on case histories from his own practice at the prestigious Tufts University Veterinary Center and offers fresh and incredibly useful tips that apply the latest discoveries in canine behaviorism and pharmacology. Here are simple, sensible, step-by-step instructions on diet, exercise, environment, and lifestyle changes that any pet owner can safely implement to effect seemingly miraculous improvement in their dog's behavior. Authoritative, entertaining, and immensely practical, Dr. Dodman proves that when it comes to caring for man's best friend, he's the best friend we have.
