Civilizing the City Dog: A Guide to Rehabilitating Aggressive Dogs in an Urban Environment

Residing in a large, congested city presents special problems to city dwellers who own aggressive dogs. There are few places to escape the constant stream of people, automobiles, dogs and other circumstances that may trigger an aggressive or reactive dog. Just walking out the door of the apartment can be a challenge.

Realizing the city dog is presented with constant action, with no room to avoid threatening situations, Pamela S. Dennison and Jolanta Benal have written a book addressing those very issues that make training an aggressive or reactive dog in a large city unique. With clarity, the authors guide the reader down the path to rehabilitation. They begin with recommending dry runs and having a helper, training indoors and working to prevent reactive behavior. Advice is included on what to do if the dog goes over the threshold or if a real catastrophe strikes, and how to become inventive in sticky situations. The authors also focus on teaching the owner/handler to learn how to handle their own anxieties or fears.

Although at times the authors refer to Dennison s previous book, How to Right a Dog Gone Wrong, this book is very capable of standing on its own. It is full of solid, well-thought-out information that the owner of an aggressive or reactive dog can put into use. With time, patience and dedication, readers will soon be walking their dog down a crowded street with confidence.
