An examination of canine behavioral disorders shares often humorous case studies that offer reassurance to troubled pet owners and address such conditions as growling and separation anxiety

Blackwell North Amer
In this warm, compassionate, entertaining, and very informative book, Dr. Dodman tells real-life stories from his practice that illustrate his unique approach to correcting and curing unwanted behaviors. By making key changes in a dog's diet, exercise regime, environment, and training, Dr. Dodman has been able to work seeming wonders with even the most difficult problems. Treating everything from minor training lapses to blanket-sucking in dachshunds, rage syndrome in springer spaniels, anxiety in Afghans, and obsessive-compulsive disorders in golden retrievers and Labradors, Dr. Dodman tackles the most common as well as the most baffling of dog disorders.
He'll introduce you to Rocky, a dominant Rottweiler; Charlie, a fearful mixed-breed biter; Samson and Delilah, a pair of springer spaniels who had to learn to accept their owner's new baby as part of the pack; Tammy, the collie who had a fear of Thursdays; Sybil, a German shepherd terrified of thunder; and last but not least, Elsa, the Labrador who loved too much.
Utilizing revolutionary new discoveries in canine behaviorism and pharmacology, Dr. Dodman has given hope and help to owners whose only previous options were obedience schools - and if these failed, which they often do, the painful decision of euthanasia. He also details the use of "human" medications to treat specific psychological disorders in our canine companions who, as many a confirmed dog lover will readily agree, are not so different from us humans after all.
Complete with special checklists of symptoms identifying specific problems and possible treatment options, Dr. Dodman offers an invaluable resource for the health and well-being of your pet - and your own peace of mind. Whether you own a problem dog or just want to better understand the complex, intelligent mind of your canine companion, this is a book you won't want to miss.
