Compiling the insight, experience, and understanding developed over 20 years by the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC), this guide provides an expert perspective guaranteed to enhance the relationship between a pet and its owner. Exploring the vital aspects of canine, feline, and rabbit psychology, the chapters illustrate why it is necessary to understand the psychology of a pet, examining the science of animal behavior while also analyzing how learning and emotions govern its actions. Groundbreaking essays on problem behavior are included, using the perspective of animals emotional state to propose solutions. With guidance on the relationships between pets and childrenincluding newbornsthis updated and expanded study also covers rage syndrome in dogs, the rehabilitation of rescue dogs and cats, the use of punishment, why the dominance model with dogs is inappropriate, and advice on legal and welfare issues for pets.
