A MUST read re: dog aggression behaviors......Well published book author, PhD zoologist, animal specialist..trainer....educator....but, when her own 8 week old beautiful Border collie puppy immediately shows severe fears, and becomes aggressive (toward her other dog).....well....troubles begin; she tracks the training and problems through several years of her dog's life. Wonderful reading. Descriptive, thoughtful, captivating.

THIS BOOK is a MUST for anyone whose dog/s are is a wonderful read of chapters filled with real life examples of aggression by a dog (to other dogs, to people, etc.)...and how, as an animal behaviorist, she tackles the issues, step by step.
She is so very human; understanding how her own behavior may have contributed to her dog's problems....until she became aware...
