Abstract:

How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves takes a scientifically sound yet practical approach to explaining dog behavior and training theory, and then shows you how to apply these concepts so you can train your dog to be well behaved. Written by one of the leading veterinary behaviorists in the country, this revised and expanded edition of the original bestseller features brand new chapters that provide the most up-to-date science of dog behavior and explains key concepts in clear, straightforward language. The user-friendly, full-color instructional drawings enhance the informative text, while the all-positive training advice helps you change undesirable behaviors without resorting to aversive corrections such as yelling, hitting, pushing, or other outdated forms of punishment. Good behavior and problem solving exercises are broken down into easy-to-read "5 Minute" sections, while "Spot" quizzes throughout the text help reinforce your grasp of the material. Science-based methods for observing, understanding, and modifying behavior are applied to everyday situations, offering numerous examples of how training exercises can be turned into fun games for both dogs and owners.
