    Thumbs up Canine and Feline Behavior and Training



    Review

    "This book is well-researched, absolutely thorough and brimming with sound information. A splendid antidote to the fads, content-free drivel and made-up junk that plagues the popular dog behavior literature." -Jean Donaldson, Director of The San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers

    "Linda Case builds on well-documented evidence regarding the evolution of dog and cat behavior, and presents training and behavior problem solving within this ethological context. The fundamentals of learning theory are presented in a clear fashion and many examples are provided. Case provides substantial documentation to support her descriptions, while at the same time, avoiding excessive jargon and terminology. Most important is that she takes the time to debunk shallow and "pop" presentations of such concepts as dominance and the role of punishment." - Stephen Zawistowski, Ph.D., CAAB Executive Vice President, ASPCA

    "This book is destined to become a classic textbook for students of dog behavior, but should also be of interest to every pet dog owner and enthusiast in the country. The book contains all of the information from an outstanding knowledge of theory, but more importantly from Linda Case's own personal experience as a dog trainer and behaviorist."- John Rogerson, founder and principal lecturer of the Northern Centre for Canine Behavior and author of seven books

    "As one who lives and works with both dogs and cats, I am very pleased to see them discussed together in this text. The side-by-side comparison of their domestication processes, developmental stages, body language, and behavior issues is valuable to anyone who lives or works with, or cares for them and wants to help them. Whether the reader is a student of veterinary science, shelter worker or rescue foster, trainer or behavior consultant, owner or potential adopter, this text is packed with up-to-date scientific information, written in a very digestible format. Each chapter contains references to the best scholarly texts available. Thank goodness Linda Case has done the work for us to be able to access such an approachable compilation of vital material. All of us - and especially cats, dogs, and owners - will be better off for it. I need two copies - one for reference and one to loan out." -Janet Velenovsky CPDT, CDBC-TAC, Animal Behavior Consultant

    Product Description

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the most critical components of a successful human-animal relationship, and provides a framework to understand the behavior, communication patterns, and learning techniques that govern social interactions. Well-researched and accessible, Canine and Feline Behavior: A Complete Guide to Understanding Our Two Best Friends is an application-based resource to encourage effective training and behavior modification programs for both dogs and cats. Coverage begins with a foundation of evolutionary histories and domestication, focusing on normal communication and social behavior patterns. Learning theory is then presented in the context of real-world relevance to companion animal care, behavior prevention, training, and modification. Finally, common behavior problems and approaches to manage these issues are discussed, making this an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand more about their dogs and cats.
