A Modern Dog's Life: How to Do the Best for Your Dog

What do dogs value? Why do they get so excited by their daily walks? And why may dogs of different breeds have different needs? Veterinarian, professor of animal behavior, and dog lover Dr. Paul McGreevy answers these questions and many more. He takes readers on a walk in the paws of man's best friend to illuminate the challenges and confusions faced by dogs in the modern world.

Filled with humor, easy-to-follow instructions, and memorable characters (including "Uncle Wolf" and "Feral Cheryl"), A Modern Dog's Life will help you better understand your dog with:

  • Insights from recent studies on how dogs see, smell, and experience the world
  • Explanations of canine behavior, with over 40 photos of dogs in action
  • Tips on everything from petting dogs to calming them at the vet's
  • User-friendly training techniques that build skills gradually and keep dogs motivated

Dr. McGreevy offers an exciting new approach to training a dog: By acting as a "life coach"—rather than an "alpha dog" or "parent"—and by reimagining "training" as a fun opportunity for you and your dog to grow closer and learn new skills, you can greatly improve your dog's quality of life—and teach good behavior at the same time.
