In The Dog Listener, Jan Fennell changed the way we think about our best friends. Now, in this indispensible companion volume, she deals with the day-to-day practicalities of putting those principles to work. In The Practical Dog Listener, Jan Fennell distils her ideas into a simple 30-day guide that will enable everyone to use her remarkable methods in a practical context. She covers every element of pet ownership - from introducing a dog to its new home and handling it in public, to dealing with behavioural problems. With detailed sections on everything from exercise to diet, there will also be problem-solving guides, dealing with worries such as biting or anxiety. Once again, Jan illustrates her points with entertaining and inspiring real-life cases from her own work with damaged and delinquent dogs. She even tells the saga of the Devil Dog - a tale to reassure even the most desperate owner that perseverance really does pay off! The book contains easy-to-follow line drawings, which accompany the text, along with two picture sections.
