Synopsis: “Although this book has a scientific basis, it was written in a manner that is easily understandable for laypersons. Decoding Your Dog will be a valuable addition to the library of any small-animal practitioner or dog owner.” –Angela Bockelman, DVM, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association
 
Unwanted behavior is the number-one reason dogs are relinquished to shelters and rescue groups. Dog owners face a plethora of trainers offering a bewildering variety of advice. From rewards to dominance training, from to shock collars to clickers, there are too many theories peddled by too few trained experts. Finally, the board-certified specialists of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists are here to decode how dogs think, how they communicate, and how they learn.
 
Combining cutting-edge science with accessible and adaptable real-life examples, this is a must-have dog behavior guide showcasing the latest veterinary-approved positive training methods. Decoding Your Dog will resolve the complaints, answer the curiosities, and, ultimately, challenge the way we think about our dogs.

“[The] authors nimbly craft a basic primer for grasping dogs’ demeanor and in the process offer up the best life insurance policy you can buy for Fido.” –Ranny Green, coauthor of Good Dogs, Bad Habits

Decoding Your Dog is an important addition to the canine canon, one that will go a long way toward increasing your understanding of your best friend.” –Bark

From the Inside Flap: The definitive, research-proven book on why our dogs do what they do and how we can prevent or solve common canine behavior problems
Unwanted behavior is the number-one reason dogs are relinquished to shelters and rescue groups. Dog owners face an explosion of trainers offering a bewildering variety of advice. From rewards to dominance training to shock collars to clickers, there are too many theories peddled by too few trained experts. And still, every year, thousands of dogs are given away by the families that wanted to love them.

In fact, there are scientifically proven answers to nearly every question of dog behavior, answers that could save many dogs and improve the lives of many families. Finally, the board-certified specialists of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists are here to decode how dogs think, how they communicate, and how they learn.

In Decoding Your Dog, these experts analyze problem behaviors, decipher the latest studies, and correct common misconceptions and outmoded theories. The book includes:
· Effective, veterinary-approved positive training methods
· Expert advice on socialization, housetraining, and exercise
· Remedies for behavior problems such as separation anxiety and aggression
· New breakthroughs in psychopharmacology and relief available for a range of issues

Combining cutting-edge science with accessible and adaptable real-life examples, Decoding Your Dog is a must-have dog behavior guide that will resolve the complaints, answer the curiosities— and ultimately, challenge the way we think about our dogs.
