From Library Journal
Both Siegal and Margolis have written other dog books on pet selection, training, and behavior. This particular title brings together their suggestions on handling specific behavior problems of individual dogs. While none of the ideas is especially innovative (consisting of analyzing the problem, looking for its roots, then using reconditioning techniques and obedience training methods to overcome the unwanted behavior), they are so clearly and positively presented that they will be most useful for a harried owner. Further, the authors emphasize the need to recognize the personality of the individual dog before choosing a correction. This readable, instructive book would be a good public library selection.
