The Cautious Canine

by Patricia McConnell

Many fear-based problems can be overcome by learning how to apply desensitization and counter conditioning.

Whether your dog is afraid of the vacuum cleaner or defensively aggressive to visitors, this booklet offers a step-by-step plan to create a happier and better behaved dog.

The Cautious Canine will:
• Help you create a safe environment for your dog and others
• Illustrate that what’s called “aggression” is often fear
• Show you how to identify the subtle “triggers” that elicit fear
• Help you turn your dog’s fear into happy anticipation
• Teach you how to manage “surprises” that could set your dog back
