Summary
A practical guide to adopting, training and living with a rescue dog, from popular dog trainer and animal behaviourist Laura Vissaritis. Adopting a rescue dog can be daunting. With anxieties and fears from their previous life, they can carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. But all dogs deserve a second chance - and this book will teach you how to provide it. Animal behaviourist Laura Vissaritis's approach to training a rescue dog focuses on one side of the relationship: the human. Because to help your dog change their behaviour, first you must change your own. By building a relationship based on mutual trust and respect, you will help your dog make the most of their new life. Explaining the underlying psychology and offering clear step-by-step guides, Laura covers everything you need to know, including how to: bring home and socialise your rescue dog; establish routines for essentials like toilet training and walking on a leash; understand your dog's body language; discourage unwanted behaviours such as excessive barking or jumping up; ease their stress, phobias or separation anxiety. Giving a rescue dog a better life is one of the most emotional, uplifting journeys you can go on. The Rescue Dog will guide you on the path to success
