In this essential new book, Dodman draws on some twenty-five years of clinical experience to bring together the art?and science?of dog ownership. Forty-two percent of dog owners in this country report problems managing their dogs? behavior. But it doesn?t have to be this way. As Dr. Dodman points out, almost every dog problem can be either treated or, better yet, prevented. His book shows you how, offering what he calls ?continuing education? for dogs and their owners.

You will discover
? how much exercise your dog really needs (and why)
? how diet can affect behavior
? how to communicate clearly with your dog
? how to lead your dog, not dominate him
? how to prevent or deal with your dog?s fears
