Format: Hardcover
Being a dog owner is far more difficult then most people expect. For people who don't have a lot of exposure to dogs, there are a lot of behaviors that won't be predicted or understood. This book is a simple and unthreatening way to introduce and educate someone on dog behavior.

There are descriptive pictures included on *every* single page. The pictures were very well chosen and clarify every point. This book is ideal for pet owners with children. Parents can use the pictures to explain dog behavior in their own words to their children. Some pictures include

This book focuses on explaining behaviors rather than fixing them. Although solutions are included for every topic mentioned, most are brief and vague. Unless your dog has a serious problem, most of the solutions found in this book will suffice for most owners.

I definitely suggest this book for;
- First Time Owners
- First time having a dog with children in the home
- Kids (because of the pictures, though other children could probably read the text)
- Friends interested in getting a dog
- Pet/Animal lovers

* If your dog has a serious behavior problem, this book is not for you! Find a more comprehensive book that focuses on your dog's specific problem and take training lessons. If your dog is dog aggressive, there are trainers that help deal with that, but make sure that trainer has access to a lot of dogs to expose your dog to.

Why Is My Dog Doing That? by Gwen Bailey provides simple, realistic explanations for dog behaviors that annoy humans. Bailey includes pictures to demonstrate the behaviors. She also explains the dog's motivation but don't expect to find solutions to complex behavioral problems. She gives some simple redirection tools and ideas that provide a starting point when dealing with dog's behavior. Bailey's easy to read style of writing makes this a good starting point for understanding dog behavior and perhaps could serve as a quick reminder reference when a dog owner is in a rush.
