______________________ What do my dog's barks mean? Should I be brushing their teeth? How do I even know what kind of dog is right for me? Let's be honest, pets may seem pretty straightforward, but as soon as you become an owner there are so many questions. Mat Ward is an internationally recognised expert on dog behaviour, and for him the secret to success is knowing that dogs and humans are both full of potential. (To prove it, he once taught a rescue dog how to fly a plane.) His tips for being the world's best owner come with original illustrations that explain everything you need to know, from how to avoid 'separation anxiety' to why dogs wag their tails. With this book, you'll learn how your pet's brain really works and discover amazing, direct ways to train them at any age from puppy upwards. Play new games, develop communication skills and just relax into having fun together! Your dog will be well-trained and contented - and that means you'll feel happy too. ______________________ Drawings by Rupert Fawcett, the cartoonist behind Off the Leash and Fred.
