Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andldquo;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.andrdquo; andndash;Angela Bockelman, DVM, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association

and#160;

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.

and#160;

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.

andldquo;[The] authors nimbly craft a basic primer for grasping dogsandrsquo; demeanor and in the process offer up the best life insurance policy you can buy for Fido.andrdquo; andndash;Ranny Green, coauthor of Good Dogs, Bad Habits

andldquo;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.andrdquo; andndash;Bark

Synopsis:

One of the most prestigious and pioneering veterinary schools now shares its accumulated knowledge and experience to aid new dog owners in raising healthy, happy, and well-behaved companions.

Synopsis:

The top dog behaviorists in the country - the top researchers, scientists, and veterinarians - have teamed up with a renowned media personality to create the most cutting-edge, scientifically accurate, definitive book on the most popular behavioral issues that dogs face.

Synopsis:

The human/animal bond is never stronger or more tender than when your dog's muzzle turns gray and the spring in her step begins to diminish. After spending the better part of a decade with this beloved member of your family, making sure your canine friend ages comfortably, contendedly and well is a natural priority.  And no one knows how to ensure healthy aging better than the renowned faculty of the Tufts Cummings Veterinary School, who treat more than eight thousand older dogs annually.  

Good Old Dog brings their renowned clinic into your living room, providing you with essential advice on nutrition, health, and caretaking to see your dog through the golden years.

Synopsis:

Puppy’s First Steps presents the new gold standard in animal care for the enlightened dog owner--a unique, comprehensive approach to health, training, and behavior. The faculty of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, one of the most prestigious and pioneering veterinary schools in the world, now shares its accumulated knowledge and experience to aid new dog owners in raising the healthiest, happiest, most well-behaved companion.

Their integrative mind-body approach is scientifically proven and stands above the one-size-fits-all mentality that pervades the dog training world. This book offers crucial advice for the puppy’s first year—the most essential twelve months of a dog’s development—and throughout the dog’s life, ensuring a strong bond between owners and their best friends.
