In fact, that work is just beginning.Forty-two percent of dog owners in this country report problems managing their dogs’ behavior. Our nation’s pounds and shelters are teeming with dogs who have been given up for just this reason. But it doesn’t have to be this way. As Dr. Dodman points out, almost every dog problem can either be treated or, better yet, prevented. Every dog has the potential to be happy and well adjusted.In The Well-Adjusted Dog, Dr. Dodman shows you how, offering what he calls continuing education” for dogs and their owners.
