Published May, 2023
Gain practical insights into decoding your dog's emotions, pre-empting behavioral issues, and forging an unbreakable bond of trust. Whether you're considering welcoming a new puppy, or already dealing with an anxious dog, this book is an invaluable resource.
Immerse yourself in the fictional world of Allen and Nella, two beloved puppies who find themselves misunderstood by the people around them. Their captivating story unfolds with vivid depictions of their emotions, and the factors contributing to their anxiety. As their behavioral struggles intensify, they embark on a quest for help, but their paths diverge in unexpected ways.
Each chapter of the book ends with a "Chapter Reflections" section, where some research and theory of canine behavior is presented to shed light on the unfolding story. These short and accessible chapters strike the perfect balance, providing just the right amount of information without overwhelming the reader.
Allen’s barking is trained with force, providing quick results, but will he find happiness? Nella’s anxiety is managed with empathy, but will a soft-handed approach work? Join the dogs on their journey and see the devastating impact of ignorance about dog behavior, and the power of compassion.
As a veterinarian with a PhD in dog anxiety, author Dr Dennis Wormald brings a wealth of knowledge to this remarkable story, which is inspired by his clinical work in dog behavior medicine. His guidance will empower you to navigate the complexities of dog behavior with empathy and compassion.
Dr Wormald is a registered veterinarian in Victoria, Australia. A member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (Veterinary Behaviour Chapter), and has his PhD in canine behavior and anxiety (Melbourne University). For more information, click here.
