Reviews - What do customers think about Stress in Dogs?
hard to read and not very useful Jul 17, 2008
I was disappointed in this book. It has two flaws--either the original writing was awkward, or the translation is bad--it's hard to tell which. Second, and more importantly, it doesn't have a great deal of practical utility. There are many signs of stress listed, that include almost every dog behavior under the sun, and many causes, which are, again, multiple. The most interesting fact I picked up from it was that dogs need an average of 17 hours a day of sleep not to be stressed! If the reader needs a really useful reference on how to recognize stress in dogs, Canine Body Language by Aloff is much, much more useful, or the original pamphlet Turid Rugaas.
Best Book on Stress in Dogs Dec 23, 2007
This book clearly discusses the types of stresses dogs have and helps humans understand and deal with those stresses. A great read for the serious dog person.
Do what I say... Oct 20, 2007
Stress in Dogs Although this is a very well written book, I found myself asking questions, like why did a longer leash work better? Could have been a little more detailed.
Every dog owner should read this book! Jul 3, 2007
Too few people realize the stresses that our domestic dogs face on a daily basis. This book describes what to look for and how to reduce stress in our dogs. Myraid of behavior problems are rooted in stress and this book is an excellent resource for anyone that wants to modify their dogs behavior by identifying and removing stressors from their environment.
