The Dog Behavior Answer Book: Practical Insights & Proven Solutions for Your Canine Questions
It happens all the time. Just when Max’s owner thinks she has him figured out, he exhibits a bewildering fear of the neighbor’s skateboard. Or, despite endless corrections, Bailey still refuses to understand that she doesn’t belong on the leather armchair.
Then there are the dogs that almost always behave appropriately and predictably but can still display a few surprise reactions in situations that disturb their routines. Houseguests might be ruining Buster’s sense of order — taking over his favorite room and distracting his humans from important things like fetch and dinner. And that dog park near Sadie’s new house is terrific, but she might be having a tough time understanding the rules of etiquette.
To all these situations and a hundred more, dog expert Arden Moore provides answers that clearly explain canine actions and reactions, and then helps readers with suggestions for modifying unacceptable behavior. For every canine misdeed, there is a human counter-response to fix the problem. Read about both sides of the story in these friendly questions and answers, taken from real-life situations with real dogs. There is hardly a behavior that will not have dog lovers nodding their heads in recognition.
The Dog Behavior Answer Book will solve the mysteries of canine shoe theft, food guarding, and grass eating for puzzled humans everywhere.

Just what your dog wants you to know.User Review - Overstock.com
I lot of good general and breed specific information that is handy to have when you want to know why your dog is doing whatever it is they are doing, or, in some cases not doing. The book starts with the selection of the best fit between you and the type of dog you should look for. Then on to the puppy stuff once you get a dog home. In further chapters you get down to what you need to do in different situations where your dog is not doing what you had hoped for or maybe what the dog hopes for. A good book at an outstanding value.

NOT impressed. Lots of stock, thoughtless answers. The author also subscribes to the (totally false) idea of pack hierarchy and "dominance" issues. Read full review
