From the psychology of aggression to the secrets of "silent correction", this book is your essential guide to dog behaviour problems - and how to deal with them. In 10 short chapters, experienced vet Gordon Roberts guides you through the challenges of life with "man's best friend". You will learn how to tackle everything from excessive barking to food aggression and why these problems arise.
The book covers all the areas where behaviour problems commonly arise - feeding, walking, and play - and tackles major issues such as aggression and discipline with a professional's insight. You'll also learn how to ensure safe and happy relationships between dogs and children. In every chapter, you'll find clear and simple instructions for how to tackle behaviour problems and how to train your dog, while the final chapter gives an invaluable rundown of everything you need to know about your pet's health.
Understanding is at the heart of Dog Behaviour. All the canine quirks that can drive dog owners to distraction are shown here not as inexplicable and insurmountable problems, but as issues to be understood and then tackled with careful consideration and compassion. With this book as your guide, you will know what to do when a dog starts misbehaving, and you'll know why it's doing so - and that understanding is the best way to bring people and animals closer together.

outdated info. Very disappointing because book was written in 2014. Some information is correct, but wording and explanations are poor.
