"The Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training" series provides a coherent and integrated approach to understanding and controlling dog behavior. In Volume 3 various themes introduced in Volumes 1 and 2 are expanded upon, especially causally significant social, biological, and behavioral influences that impact on the etiology of behavior problems and their treatment. Ethological observations, relevant behavioral and neurobiological research, and dog behavior clinical findings are reviewed and critiqued in detail. Many of the training concepts, procedures, and protocols described have not been previously published, making this book a unique contribution to dog behavior and training literature.

Cynopraxis, the philosophical approach advocated by the author, views adjustment problems as an opportunity for positive change, thereby converting the problem into a focal point for enhancing the human-dog and improving the dog's quality of life.
