Have you ever been taken hostage? Masses of kind and caring dog owners are living out each day in a horrific real life hostage situation because their pet suffers with terrible Separation Anxiety! When our loved ones suffer (be they man or beast) we inevitably suffer too. When our dogs are anxious we, in turn, can eventually become anxious too. From the author of Dog Myths: What you Believe about dogs can come back to Bite You!, comes Garrett's next illuminating book, So Long Separation Anxiety!
Much of what we've been taught about our dogs' language, their behavior, and their training is simply untrue, or in the very least, unbeneficial! What we believe influences the actions we take. Defining and dismantling industry-wide dog myths concerning their daily interactions with us will greatly help us prevent, reverse, and eliminate poor behavior in our dogs and pups much more than simply adding mainstream training and behavior modification! Did you know that when a dog licks you it is NOT the human equivalent of a kiss? Were you aware that when your dog or puppy flops over and shows his/her belly it does NOT always suggest submission? Did you know that adding obedience does NOT subtract behavior problems? There are so many dog myths plaguing our society and well-meaning owners and their dogs and pups are suffering because of it.
