I'm a dog! Yeah, so what?
The Dogs Behavior - Practical Solutions
If only our dogs could get by on their cute looks. After all, many people are initially drawn to a particular puppy or dog because of its physical appearance.
“Aren’t her floppy ears adorable?”
“How can I say no to that sweet face?”
Unfortunately, some dogs grow up to be more challenging than cute, more fearful than fun, more bossy than benign. The people/pet honeymoon ends abruptly and the problem-solving phase begins. Your dog puzzles you.
Why does he chase that tennis ball again and again?
Or greet your date by sniffing his butt?
Or bark-bark-bark whenever you speak on the phone? You want answers to save the remaining leather shoes in your closet, the prize roses in your garden, and the plush carpet in your living room.
You wish you could wave a magic wand and engage in a meaningful person-to-dog chat. You want to know why your dog wants to pick a fight with your dishwasher, but runs with his tail tucked from a kid on a skateboard. You want to learn how to stop her from yanking on the leash and stealing your pillow at bedtime.
That’s why I wrote this book. Think of the Dog Behavior book as a guide to how dogs think. What makes this book stand out like a Great Dane in a pack of Yorkies is that I answer actual questions from owners like you who just want enjoy a great relationship with that tail-wagger sharing your home.
