Doggy Problems Solved
How to Stop your Dog's Bad BehaviorBook - 2009
Doggy problems quickly turn into people problems unless dog owners come up with good solutions. Author Amanda O'Neill has those solutions, which she shares with readers and divides into several general categories for easy reference. The categories include Antisocial Behavior, Sex Problems, Smelly Problems, Barking Problems, and others. For example, among the problems discussed under Antisocial Behavior is "My Dog Wrecks My Neighbor's Garden." The problem and its solution are broken down according to possible causes, breed notes (some breeds are especially prone to digging), recommended action owners can take, and prevention. Some doggy problems are best solved by training, others by deterrent methods, and still others--like many "smelly dog" problems--by consultation with a veterinarian. Amanda O'Neill offers her advice in a friendly, highly informal style, and every page of her book is enhanced with color photos and cartoon-style illustrations.
