The Dog Aggression Workbook

by James O'Heare

The Dog Aggression Workbook is an interactive guide for guardians of dogs who behave aggressively. The workbook presents a systematic and highly efficient and effective, positive reinforcement-based approach to understanding, assessing and changing aggressive behaviors in dogs. Strategies and techniques are described clearly and completely in a conversational style that is easy to read and understand. Guardians will be armed with the tools they need to address all kinds of aggressive behavior problems, while avoiding harsh punitive techniques. The workbook utilizes a behavioral approach, focusing on identifying specific problem behaviors, what evokes them and what consequences are maintaining them. It explains how to implement desensitization and behavior replacement procedures to change emotional responses and the aggressive behaviors they motivate. Taking a global and comprehensive approach, it addresses the whole context in which aggressive behaviors are performed.
