Excellent, helpful, well-researched

This author has obviously dealt with many dog behavior issues! He has seen it all and offers behavioral solutions as well as indications of medication that may offer help to the helpless. Anyone who thinks medication is "thrown at the dog" is wrong. Dr. Dodman obviously cares, and we know that human beings with psychological issues are very often helped by medications. Why should our beloved dogs be any different.I loved this book. I learned so much. I learned to not play with flashlight beams with puppies and not encourage those types of behaviors. I learned how to react, and not react, to a dog's fear of loud noises or thunder. I thank the author and publisher for making this book available and opening the door to the public about dog behavior. I look forward to reading his next book A-Z.

Wonderful!

Finally a book that discusses crate training an adult dog with separation anxiety instead of an eight week old puppy. If your dog has any psychological/behavioral issues, this is a terrific book to help you with behavior modification, drug therapy, and understanding why your dog is so "strange." This book is worth reading for dog owners as well as potential dog owners. It is a good manuel to have on hand.

Fantastic read; excellent source of information

Wow. I read this book cover to cover. The writing was easy and flowing, the real-life examples Dodman gave to illustrate his methods were fantastic. He uses a humane, non-violent approach to correcting behavior problems that I have found works much better than the abusive jerk-and-pull methods that have been popular for the last 20+ years. As a rescuer of purebred dogs, I find his advice indispensible!

easy reading, very informative and helpful

This book is the best thing I have ever purchased for my dog. They writing style is very easy reading, and the treatments are extremely easy for anyone to do for their dogs. I will definitely buy another book by this author even if it is just to read for fun. I would highly recommend this book to all dog owners.

The BEST educational easy-to-read book about dogs & owners.

I am really in-tune with my dog, but NEVER realized how much my behavior contributed to my dog's behavioral reactions. Dogs cannot speak like we can, but they have their own way of communicating and/or responding their needs or concerns of past/present traumas or illnesses. Sometimes you think they are being bad, but they are really trying to tell you they are scared or have an oncoming illness that even the vetinerarian cannot presently find. EXCELLENT book to understand dogs and certain breeds. I love and understand my Babalou, a Shephard/Lab mix, even more:) It is a must read and should be read by every dog owner!
