Summary
  • Whether you are planning a trip to the shelter to adopt a dog or have been struggling with your pet's problems for many months or even years, Adoptable Dog: Teaching Your Adopted Pet to Obey, Trust, and Love You will guide you through all the challenges you might face. Written by John Ross and Barbara McKinney, leading dog-training experts and authors of the best-selling Puppy Preschool, Adoptable Dog is a comprehensive volume that covers common problems and provides realistic solutions Adoptable Dog is not only santial for anyone considering adopting a dog but also hugely helpful for anyone who already owns an adult dog. Unbelievably, there has never been a comprehensive training-and-care guide written for the adopted or "pre-owned" dog. Manuals abound for the puppy, even for the adult or mature dog, but Adoptable Dog promises to be the standard work for this exploding population. John Ross and Barbara McKinney provide invaluable advice for every kind of adoptable dog: the older puppy, the overactive or unhouse-broken adult dog, the shelter pooch, or even the mature canine in need of one last, loving home
  • As people who already own dogs know, great intentions are not enough to make your new pet a well-loved, well-behaved part of your family. Your enthusiasm after rescuing a homeless dog can quickly turn sour when problems appear. After all, it's not unusual for adopted dogs to bring all sorts of behavioral baggage with them. In fact, their behavioral problems may have been the reason they were given up in the first place. Here, in one comprehensive volume, you will find an abundance of commonsense, canine advice -- everything to make your dog adoption an unqualified success. At the heart of Adoptable Dog is a pet-focused training program. In an easy-to-use, step-by-step style, Ross and McKinney show you how to overcome training challenges that are common to so many adopted dogs. You can teach your dog to behave, whether he is unruly on the leash, jumps all over guests, steals dessert, grabs the kids' toys, or struggles during a much-needed bath. No behavior is beyond the reach of Adoptable Dog training! It's good news for owners, but it's great news for an entire continent of previously unwanted pooches. At last, they have a real chance to have a successful and permanent home: yours
