Summary
More than ninety percent of dog owners consider their pets to be members of their family. But often, despite our best intentions, we are letting our dogs down by not giving them the guidance and direction they need. Unwanted behavior is the number one reason dogs are relinquished to shelters and rescue groups. The key to training dogs effectively is first to understand why our dogs do what they do. In Decoding Your Dog, graduates of the American College of Veterinary Behavior analyze problem behaviors, decipher the latest studies, and correct common misconceptions and outmoded theories. The book includes effective, veterinary-approved positive training methods; expert advice on socialization, housetraining, diet, and exercise; and remedies for behavior problems such as OCD and aggression
