If you’re like most dog owners, you’ve probably wondered exactly what your dog was thinking. Maybe you’ve even tried to decipher your dog’s quizzical expression, attempted to make sense of the cocked head, the wagging tail, or the steely gaze. But what you may not know is that what your dog is thinking is the key to successfully training your dog.
In Think Like Your Dog, leading dog trainer Dianna M. Young and award-winning journalist Robert H. Mottram explain how by thinking like your dog—and by learning to speak your dog’s language—dog owners can take communication to a whole new level.
Think Like Your Dog takes readers inside a dog’s head and explains the processes that go on there. Moreover, Think Like Your Dog explains key principles, that when properly applied, will reward the owner with a happy, disciplined dog and fulfilling companion.
A comprehensive guide based on decades of experience, How to Think Like Your Dog addresses such topics as: choosing a canine companion, understanding the importance of socialization, learning to speak the language of dog, achieving basic, intermediate and advanced obedience training, successfully integrating a new puppy into one’s life, solving problems and more.
Written in clear, concise language, and resplendent with insider insights, tried and true tips and techniques, Think Like Your Dog is peppered with real life examples and photographs. With its fresh perspective on dog training, Think Like Your Dog may well be the second best friend a dog owner could ever have.
According to Elizabeth Kerstetter, a Pennsylvania-based veterinary hospital manager, Think Like Your Dog is “a must-read for any dog owner.”
