Book Description

2 Nov 2009
Whether it's chewing inappropriate things, stealing food, chasing cyclists or being over-possessive with toys, all dogs do something that their owner finds strange or antisocial. Understanding this behaviour is the first step to curing naughty habits and achieving a happy household hound. From the author of the bestselling "What is My Dog Thinking?", this book focuses on troublesome and odd behaviour in the same easy-to-use format. It gives clear explanations about what your dog's thinking when he acts in the way he does and provides tips on how to prevent and cure his 'bad' habits. Can you really afford to be without it?

3.0 out of 5 stars Why is My Dog Doing That? 5 Dec 2009
By Fiona
Disappointed. Yes it tells you why your dog does things, just as it says in the title. It does not offer any help about what to do to stop your dogs behaviour. Perhaps once you understand why, it assumes you know how to prevent unwanted behaviour. Or is that in another book.....?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting 9 Dec 2009
By Mrs M
I found this book very light on information. It explains the innate behaviour of dogs but not how to resolve issues
