Dogs Are From Neptune

But people are on another planet! Jean's innovative ideas are delivered via quirky and witty, but always scientifically based, essays will help create "Aha!" moments for every dog lover on earth. If you loved Jean's best selling The Culture Clash, you will enjoy learning more about the dogs who inhabit planet Neptune and the people who don't!

Your dog is from Neptune - narrow the gap by learning more about:

  • The truth and power of consequences and how you can use them to train your dog.
  • The best ways to deal with common problem behaviors including guarding, separation anxiety and fear.
  • Why you should be skeptical of anyone whose training techniques and philosophies sound appealing but cannot be backed up with scientific evidence.
  • Dispel common myths associated with using food in training, dominance and whether playing tug with your dog really encourages aggression.
  • While we may be on different planets, learn how the fundamentals of behavior apply equally to dogs and people.
  • Why it seems that owners become more attentive trainers when they dress their dogs in costumes!

Paperback. 2nd edition.
