A dog with bad habits is no fun to own.

    BREAKING BAD

    HABITS IN DOGS

    Since its first U.S. publication in 2003, Breaking Bad Habits in Dogs has proven a valuable bestseller to dog owners across America. Filled with good advice and elucidating author Colin Tennant's sensible attitude toward solving canine problems, this new edition is better than ever. It reviews the fundamentals of canine psychology, describing how dogs understand and communicate, and how many of their instincts differ from our own. It goes on to instruct in the basics of obedience training, with focus on humane methods for breaking bad canine habits. This revised and updated second edition, features more than 50 additional photos as well as a handsome new graphic style. Although brand-new in appearance, the book retains its identity as a trusted reference source that has proven unrivalled in the range and effectiveness of its recommended methods.
