Your dog and you: Understanding the canine psyche

· Veloce Publishing Ltd

About this ebook

Just how successful the bond between man and dog is depends on the dog's ability to ‘read’ us and our moods, so the more we understand about our own behaviour, the better we can influence our dog's responses. The anxieties of an owner can be reflected in their dog's behaviour, and the same is true of a calm, even-tempered owner. Sometimes we encounter difficulties in life, work and relationships; CBT can help reduce the emotional impact of these struggles on ourselves, and, in turn, our relationship with our dog. A dog may be man's best friend, but first, we need to be our own best friend. This book will show you how.
