About this title


This book is the product of years of working with expecting dog owners both to resolve child/dog issues as well as to prevent them. After speaking with one person more than I cared to that was forced into surrendering their beloved family companion because they hadn’t taken measures to prevent problems I decided to put everything relevant on the subject into writing in hopes that others would not have to undergo the same ordeal.

The first section involves relationship building and the elmination of annoying behaviors that would be problematic in the presence of a young child such as counter surfing, door crashing, jumping up and so on.

The second section deals with more serious behavior problems such as object guarding, fearfulness, separation anxiety, territoriality and more.

The third section discusses criteria for determining whether you should consider rehoming your present dog given certain dangerous behavior problems.

The final section explains how to prepare for your child's arrival and teach your dog to develop powerful positive associations with him/her while at the same time exhibiting acceptable behaviors and becoming more closely integrated into your "pack."

About the Author:

Michael Wombacher has been involved with dogs for over twenty years in a variety of capacities and at this writing he has performed well over ten-thousand in home behavioral consultations covering the entire spectrum of dog behavior from the mundane to the bizarre. He is an author and lecturer and has also taught classes, trained other trainers, helped run kennels as well as his own small-scale boarding and training operation.

Mike has been certified as an expert in dog behavior by the California Superior Court and does occasional work evaluating dogs in legal matters. He has also been featured on local and regional news programs and has trained dogs for high profile celebrities in the entertainment and financial worlds such as Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, Barry Levinson, Charles Schwab and Michael Tilson Thomas.

His training approach focuses on channeling a dog’s natural drives and instincts into behaviors acceptable in the human pack primarily through the principles of positive reinforcement and operant conditioning as well as through methods that appeal to the dog’s canine sensibilities.

His training methods are so effective and his style so clear that Michael Tilson Thomas, music director of the San Francisco Symphony and one of the great classical musicians of our time, commented that "Michael Wombacher is a maestro of dog trainers. His clarity of thinking, sense of humor and skills in communicating make dog training fun for both pet and pet lover."
