Summary
"How can you be sure that your dog is happy? What can owners do to ensure their dog has the best chance at a long, happy life? Experts in animal behavior, Emma Grigg and Tammy Donaldson, set out to explore our current understanding of canine well-being in this engaging and authoritative guide to dog training. Making use of the latest in animal behaviour research and studies, The Science Behind a Happy Dog covers both scientific approaches to dog raising and practical solutions to common behavioral problems in a clear and accessible style. The science behind canine cognition and body language shows how we can use the clues that our dogs give us to maximize their well-being. This enlightening guide addresses all aspects of a dog's life, including nutrition, socialisation, exercise, reducing stress when visiting the vet, and canine mental health. It is the ultimate training book aimed at teaching owners how to raise a well-behaved, well-adjusted, and happy dog" -- back cover
