Description

This unique book, written by professionals in the field, explains how and why misunderstandings occur between us and our canine companions, and how we can work to resolve them. It aims to help us adjust the way we interact with our dogs, in order to help our dogs be well behaved, whilst at the same time enabling us to enjoy fulfilling relationships and a good quality of life with them.

Synopsis

Dogs have shared our lives for thousands of years – to the benefit of both species. However, it’s only relatively recently that dogs, in many societies, have lived primarily as companions within the heart of the home.
This close relationship, together with society’s expectations of dogs, can pose problems. All relationships have challenges, and where individuals of different species live closely together, these can be magnified, and misunderstandings occur. These can lead to fractures in the family/dog relationship, and, in some cases, result in dogs developing behaviours that are problematic for us.
This unique book, written by professionals in the field, explains how and why many of these misunderstandings occur, and how we can work to resolve them. It aims to help us adjust the way we interact with our dogs, in order to help our dogs be well behaved, whilst at the same time enabling us to enjoy fulfilling relationships and a good quality of life with them.
Especially commissioned images illustrate the text, and worksheets are provided to help owners focus on the areas where their dog and situation can benefit from applying the suggestions made.

Additional Information

Many dog behaviour problems arise through misunderstandings between people and their dogs. This book aims to reduce these misunderstandings.

Rather than training dogs in order to solve problem behaviours, this book helps people adapt their everyday interactions to avoid problems arising.

Beautifully illustrated with high quality photographs which enhance the text and help explain the principles described.
Each chapter includes a worksheet to assist owners in charting their and their dog’s progress in implementing changes in their interactions.
