Do you have a problem pooch? What do you do with a dog who attacks the telephone whenever it rings? Or one who chases imaginary rabbits down imaginary holes?  Or one who is terrified of microblinds...or turns into Cujo every time company arrives? In this warm, compassionate, entertaining, and very informative book, Dr. Nicholas Dodman, one of the premier veterinary behaviorists in the country, tells real-life stories from his practice that illustrate his unique approach to correcting unwanted behaviors.   By making key changes in a dog's diet, exercise regime, environment, and training, Dr. Dodman has been able to work wonders with  even the most difficult problems.  Utilizing revolutionary discoveries in canine behaviorism and pharmacology, Dr. Dodman has given  hope and help to owners whose only previous options were obedience schools, or if these failed--euthanasia.  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.… (mais)

This is a fascinating book written by an animal behaviorist and specialist in treating dogs with very serious problems. Combining science and psychology, this guy knows his stuff when it comes to animal personalities and genetic dispositions.

Most of the cases presented were worse case scenarios. However, it was interesting to learn about dogs with issues when their owners are not with them. Our Sheltie Lilly exhibits some of the characteristics noted whenever we go away for a few days. In particular, she misses Will. She refuses to eat and mopes.

The author cites some cases wherein a dog will literally develop anorexia and starve itself because of the love he/she feels toward his/her master and the grief of not seeing that person or persons.

I was amazed to learn that Cocker Spaniels and English Springer Spaniels are not necessarily calm dogs and MAY exhibit behavior problems regarding children. Citing cases wherein Terrier bull dogs are inbred for aggression, the author seems to not be a proponent of obtaining puppies from pet stores or puppy mills.

Citing the human brain and dog brain are similar, many dogs develop emotional problems like humans, such as obsessive compulsive disorders. ( )

This book was recommended to me by a dog trainer when my dog showed some signs of aggression. My dog didn't need medication or extensive treatment, but it was a very interesting read. Too often, I think, people give up "problem" pets without really taking the time to see how their own actions have contributed to a pet's behavior and how pets can be rehabilitated by re-training both pet AND owner.

Interesting stories from which you can learn a lot. These are extreme cases. Your dog probably doesn't need medication. -Sidney ( )
