The key to training dogs effectively is first to understand why our dogs do what they do. And no one can address this more authoritatively than the authors from the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists, whose work, the culmination of years of rigorous training, takes them deep into the minds of dogs in an effort to decode how they think, how they communicate, and how they learn.

Decoding Your Dog

In Decoding Your Dog, these experts analyze problem behaviors, decipher the latest studies, and correct common misconceptions and outmoded theories. The book includes:

  • Effective, veterinary-approved positive training methods
  • Expert advice on socialization, house training, and exercise
  • Remedies for behavior problems such as compulsive disorders and aggression

The ACVB columns on Goodnewsforpets.com highlight the content from “Decoding Your Dog” with chapter interviews with the experts that delivered a must-have dog behavior guide that ultimately challenges the way we think about our dogs.

Thanks for entering!
