«Non credo che saranno molti i 'padroni? che faticheranno a riconoscere nelle pagine seguenti alcuni comportamenti abituali dei loro cani. È fondamentale sapere interpretare le prime avvisaglie di un disturbo e avere ben chiaro in mente come comportarsi e a chi rivolgersi per evitare che la situazione evolva in qualcosa di più serio. Il cane rimane, dopo tutto, il miglior amico dell'uomo: il minimo che possiamo fare è cercare di capirlo un po' di più.» Un manuale chiaro, puntuale e completo, che offre soluzioni concrete per curare i cosiddetti cani «difficili»; cani che azzannano il telefono ogni volta che squilla, che inseguono animali immaginari, che si spaventano alla semplice vista di un oggetto o che morsicano le persone apparentemente senza motivo.

An interesting book, and a very well-respected author--but, I suspect, quite outdated now after almost 25 years. I imagine that if Dodman wrote this book today, it would not be exactly the same. Certainly, it should be read in combination with more recent works by other qualified authors--things lik Leggi tutto
Very interesting read, even if some points seem repetitive. I loved reading about read cases he's seen. He analyzes his patients and considers all possibilities (even noting his past oversights, particularly in one urinary incontinence case) and helps people to see the why/how some dogs behave/prese Leggi tutto
This is a wonderful book for animal lovers and especially for those who have dogs with some excessive behavior, wanting too much affection, too much food, too much control, or impossible security. Though I got it to deal better with an exceedingly smart and wily lab/hound mix, it has given me great
Lots of cook and good info in here. Love reading in dogs as u know hardly anything about their internal needs and I love my dog more than.ife and I want to be able to give him everything. So I gotta learn and research... and these kinda books are part of that. Enjoyed this very much.
An appreciated perspective from an animal behaviorist, not just a trainer.

The behaviors covered range from separation anxiety to aggression, from phobias to actual nervous disorders of the brain; he even addresses inappropriate urination, though it is clear he do Leggi tutto
This is a fascinating book written by an animal behaviorist and specialist in treating dogs with very serious problems. Combining science and psychology, this guy knows his stuff when it comes to animal personalities and genetic dispositions. Most of the cases presented were worse case scenarios. How Leggi tutto
