I have already put this out on loan to someone who is complaining about their dog barking.
Turid is one of the world's top behaviourists and this is the only book I have ever read where the barks are catagorised, including how they sound, and what may be the trigger.
A must read for dog owners.
The only problem is if like mine your dog has a mixture of barking triggers,(due to a shaky puppyhood) is doesn't really cover what to do when your dog is an exciteable barker, protective barker, and fear barker all within the same trigger. Which bark to train out first and which is the priority. But most dogs aren't like mine and usually have only 1 trigger and 1 issue to cause problem barking.
The downside of this book is that there are no suggestions on to how to preempt/avoid/discourage the more troublesome barking which I thought I was going to get. So interesting but not hugely useful.
She wrote another book about calming signals which is also amazing. jj
