MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
“AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR IN DOGS: A COMPREHENSIVE TECHNICAL MANUAL FOR PROFESSIONALS should be in every dog professional’s collection: it provides a comprehensive, technical manual on assessing the behavior and behavior change programs for dogs. From undersocialization and single-subject designs used in the experimental analysis of behaviors to behavior change programming, this packs in bibliographies for reference, assessment sheets, and everything the professional trainer needs to assess and handle dogs aggression. Few other surveys contain the technical, in-depth assessment of this guide”. James A. Cox
