One of the greatest myths in dog ownership is that once a puppy is housetrained and has graduated from a puppy training class, an owner’s work is done. In fact, that work is just beginning.Drawing on some twenty-five years of clinical experience, Dr.Dodman offers what he calls "continuing education" for dogs and their owners. You will discover

• how much exercise your dog really needs (and why)• how diet can affect behavior• how to communicate clearly with your dog and understand dog body language• how to lead your dog, not dominate him• how to optimize your dog’s environment• how to address medical problems that might underlie unwanted behavior

Dr.Dodman’s comprehensive, seven-step approach takes on the whole dog—his health, behavior, and environment—and lays the groundwork for the proper care and training of your best friend, for life.
