Summary
An animal behavior expert "combines sensible information with charming wit [in] an entertaining guide for new and veteran dog owners" (Ken Foster, author of The Dogs Who Found Me). What do dogs value? Why do they get so excited by their daily walks? And why do canines of different breeds have different needs? Veterinarian and professor of animal behavior Dr. Paul McGreevy answers these questions and many more, explaining what life is like from a pooch's perspective—including a special section about dogs and city living. Filled with humor and memorable characters (including "Uncle Wolf" and "Feral Cheryl"), this guide offers: Insights from recent studies on how dogs see, smell, and experience the worldExplanations of canine behavior, accompanied with over forty action photosTips on everything from petting them to calming them at the vet'sUser-friendly training techniques that build skills gradually and keep your pet motivated Dr. McGreevy offers an exciting new approach to training a dog: By acting as a "life coach"—rather than an "alpha dog" or "parent"—and by looking at the process as a fun opportunity for you and your pet to grow closer and learn new skills, you can greatly improve your dog's quality of life, and teach good behavior at the same time. "Science, experience, and common sense . . .Your dog will want you to read it." —Mark Evans, chief veterinary adviser, Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
