As previous dog owners know, great intentions are not enough to make your new pet a well-loved, well-behaved part of your family. Your enthusiasm after rescuing a homeless dog can quickly turn sour when problems appear. After all, it's not unusual for adopted dogs to bring all sorts of behavioral baggage with them. In fact, their behavioral problems may have been the reason they were given up in the first place.
Here, in one comprehensive volume, you will find an abundance of commonsense, canine advice—everything to make your dog adoption an unqualified success. Adopting a Dog covers common problems and provides realistic, effective solutions to:
determining which dog is right for which home
finding reputable breed associations, rescue organizations, and shelters
helping your dog get along with kids and older adults, as well as with other pets
retraining approaches for curing obsessive barking, separation anxiety, housebreaking problems, and fear biting
overcoming the scars of previous abuse.
At the heart of Adopting a Dog is a pet-focused training program. In an easy-to-use, step-by-step style, Ross and McKinney show you how to overcome training challenges that are common to so many adopted dogs. You can teach your dog to behave, whether he is unruly on the leash, jumps all over guests, steals dessert, grabs the kids' toys, or struggles during a much-needed bath. Adopting a Dog is sure to be a standard reference work for any dog owner's home. Originally published in hardcover under the title The Adoptable Dog.
