The Cautious Canine - How to Help Dogs Conquer Their Fears by Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D. So much aggression in dogs results from fear, but fear-based problems can become worse if treated incorrectly. This booklet provides a step-by-step explanation of desensitizing and counter classical conditioning. It can help you solve minor behavioral problems and prevent serious ones, whether your dog fears include the vacuum cleaner, people with hats, or the stranger at the door. The oh-so-important details related to identifying exactly what triggers your dog, creating a step-by-step treatment plan, monitoring your progress, and why you need to treat the fear and not just your dog's reaction to the fear are covered. This book is on the top ten of the Dogwise dog book catalog and has helped thousands of dogs and their owners around the country.
