From the Back Cover
andbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training, Volume Two: Etiology and Assessment of Behavior Problems is a definitive handbook for dog trainers, behaviorists, breeders, veterinarians, and others who have a serious interest in dog behavior and training. Readers will benefit from the author′s twenty–five years of study and experience with dogs as a behavioral consultant and trainer. The vast majority of dogs exhibit at least one undesirable habit. Most of these problems are responsive to remedial training and brief counseling. However, some behavior problems are the result of a more complex etiology involving adverse emotional influences, cognitive disturbances, or pervasive behavioral disorganization. If not properly identified and treated, such problems may lead to the dog being removed from the home or euthanized. Volume 2 of Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training explores the collective causes underlying the development of serous adjustment problems in dogs. Coupled with Volume 1: Adaptation and Learning, Volume 2 provides a comprehensive theoretical and practical framework for understanding the development and treatment of behavior problems. The focus of Volume 2 is to present and evaluate the relevant applied and scientific literature, with the goals of clarifying what is known about the etiology of dog behavior problems and highlighting what yet remains to be learned. In addition, the author introduces several alternative ways for analyzing and understanding the etiology of behavior problems. Topics covered in depth include: History of applied dog behavior Behavioral etiology and assessment Fear, anxiety, and phobias Separation–related problems Compulsive behavior problems Hyperactivity Dominance, territorial and fear–related aggression Appetitive and elimination problems This volume is an authoritive and thoroughly referenced text that is written in a highly readable and enjoyable style. There are no other applied dog behavior texts of comparable quality and thoroughness available.

So these books are not for everyone as it isnt a 'light read' but if you are looking for something scientific without it being a load of jargon that you can't understand then these are the books to get. They are expensive, but are an investment if you want to go into dog behaviour for a career, as i do. They are so good that i have bought all three volumes so i have copies at home to save me from taking them out the library all the time! Volume 1 is about how dogs learn (which casual owners would not really need to buy or use) but volumes 2 and 3 are about the cause and solution for solving behaviour problems, so you could get away with just getting volumes 2 and 3 if you are worried about buying all three them being too expensive if you are just looking into problem dog behaviour.
