Format: Paperback
This book was a Godsend. I found it the day before I finally, overwhelmed, had scheduled to put my 11 yr old cat to sleep after trying many strategies (vet check, diff litters, boxes, odor removers, special food, etc.,etc.) The book led me to a website about a special cat litter called Cat Attract, which to my shock, has saved our cat and our happy home! The book also had other suggestions which I employed as well, probably contributing to this success. Very clear and practical, tips I had not read in other sources.

18 of 22 people found the following review helpful By S. Smith on June 16, 2010
Format: Paperback
As a certified professional dog trainer (CPT) with a multi-pet household (two dogs and two cats), I read and reviewed this book from a professional's perspective rather than just as a casual enthusiast, so forgive this review if it seems rather critical. First, as a book that seems to be marketed towards addressing behavior problems (and I've read MANY such books), it had an abnormally high prevalence of product recommendations. The reason became clear when I read the author bio. at the end, indicating that Amy Shojai is a consultant to the pet products industry. This wouldn't be noteworthy, except that there were times in which product recommendations seemed to be made to the exclusion of solid training advice as was the case in the separation anxiety section. Some of the most basic advice: not making a big emotional scene during homecomings and departures, and using obedience training to build confidence so the dog can cope with being alone, are completely unmentioned. There are a full seven pages in the first chapter of the book devoted to product recommendations. Thereafter, product recommendations are commonly offered as "solutions" for problem behavior whereas conventional training wisdom says that you actually have to work with the dog to modify behavior and improve communication. I started to question if the author truly understood the concept of addressing and fixing problem behavior versus managing it around page 87 when she says in reference to Bach Flower remedies, "Behavior modification and training methods won't work until the pet gets his feelings under control." She goes on to prescribe a regimen of Bach Flower remedies, implying that by simply giving the essences the pet's behavior will change, and only after that should you attempt any actual behavior modification.Read more ›
