MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

What should you do if you can't train your dog to heel? Or it keeps tearing up the furniture? Or it's aggressive around other animals?
The Pawfect Guide to Thinking like a Dog doesn't waste time on lengthy and complicated explanations that you will never finish reading, let alone put into practice. Instead, it explains your dog's behaviour from tail wagging to self-harming, and in brief instructions explains how to train your hound, how to handle tricky issues and how to address health matters.
Featuring 110 colour photographs, the book deftly addresses all manner of issues, from fouling to whining, from barking to disobedience, from how to travel with your dog to how to wash your dog to how to train your dog to behave around children.
Packed with easy-to-understand and easy-to-apply information, The Pawfect Guide to Thinking like a Dog is an essential guide to forging a lasting, healthy relationship.
