Praise For Meet Your Dog: The Game-Changing Guide to Understanding Your Dog's Behavior (Dog Training Book, Dog Breed Behavior Book)…
"In Meet Your Dog, nationally known behavior consultant Kim Brophey introduces L.E.G.S. (Learning, Environment, Genetics, and Self), an innovative model for understanding how dogs think and why they behave the way they do. Based on the latest findings in the field of canine cognition and behavior, this book is an invaluable resource, both for experienced dog lovers and for individuals seeking their first four-legged friend."
-Hal Herzog, author of Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's So Hard To Think Straight About Animals
"Meet Your Dog is an original book that will lead even the best of us dog people to think about both dog behavior and our own behavior in new ways. It is an important book that creates a bridge between behavior science and its daily practical application by dog owners and trainers. I truly wish I had had this book to read fifty years ago."
-Ray Coppinger, author of Dogs: A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior, and Evolution, What is a Dog?, and How Dogs Work
"It's refreshing to finally find a book that takes into consideration the many predispositions to behavior problems in dogs. Many written works and theories do not take this into account, yet it is one of the major keys to understanding, and subsequently changing, canine behavior. This book is unique as it considers the whole dog. Dogs are different. They have different personalities and breeds have specific tendencies. Kim does not ignore this. On the contrary, she teaches us simple and practical ways to use these differences and tendencies to not only give dogs a better life, but also to have a more harmonious relationship with their human. This publication is a game changer because it teaches us to really see the dog in its entirety. It present us with a framework to understand all the major factors that are essential in understanding canine behavior."
-Alexandre Rossi, star of "Pet Mission" (National Geographic, Brazil), and author of A Dog at the Keyboard
