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
Summary
This book's approach to dog training focuses on one side of the relationship; the human. It is a human who determines everything in a dog's life. From before the dog is born, to the last breath they take, we are in control of the fate of our beloved canines. With this extraordinary responsibility, we ultimately shape the life of a dog. Their behaviour, emotional state and well-being falls in to our hands. Making the decision to rescue a dog then, is a responsibility often weighted down with extra baggage.
