105 Great Ideas to Having a Well Behaved Dog
FORGET about men behaving badly! If keeping your precious pooch in line is proving impossible, this handy pocket-size book could be a lifesaver.
Written by Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant and former RSPCA Dog Instructor, Kathy Kopellis McLeod, 105 Great Ideas to Having a Well Behaved Dog takes a candid look at the interaction between humans and their canine companions.
This book was written from the perspective of one of Kathy’s Siberian Huskies, Chilli, and outlines dozens of handy, dog-friendly hints to combat the difficulties and challenges often experienced in the owner-dog relationship.
The colourful A6-sized book lifts the lid off such mysteries as what your pooch's facial expressions mean and how dogs think, details toilet training tips, and reveals the best words and phrases to use in training.
Understanding your 'best friend' isn't always easy, but knowing some of the secrets behind what makes dogs tick means less headaches for you and your pet. The tips and hints in 105 Great Ideas show dog lovers how to be great leaders so they can have a happy, healthy and well-behaved pet.
Kathy has a Certificate in Canine Behaviour and is recognised by the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants as a Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant. She has more than 25 years practical experience and a sound knowledge of dog psychology.

What people have said about this book
"Great Ideas is something this book definitely has. I now know what my dog has been trying to tell me all these years!"
Pam Yearsley & Benji
"Kathys book is absolutely delightful. It covers a wide range of behaviour issues and explains solutions in such an easy to read and understandable manner. I have already taught my german shepherd, Cosmo, many new things from reading the book and have had a lot of fun. It is also great that is has been written in the Dog’s persona, as this really helps us humans to understand our furry friends much better.
"Thanks Kathy. You’re a genius!"

A humorous down to earth approach into our dogs thinking and behaviours which can be so simply changed by following some of the easy hints Kathy covers. Well done Kathy - I look forward to your next book 'Watch my Manners'. Woof."
