“This book was originally published in German in 2003. The English translation is very readable, presenting some extremely valuable information. It starts with a technical explanation of the physiology of stress in dogs… The book then dedicates itself to descriptions of signs of stress… The list of potential stressors is an interesting one that could help a dog owner understand that she might be unwittingly stressing her dog. The final third of the book is devoted to the authors’ anti-stress program… If you’re concerned that your dog might be stressed this book can help you… It’s easy to understand and full of examples. You could be doing your dog a big favor by reading it.” Janine Adams
APDT Chronicle of the Dog
“This is a book that ambitiously purports to explain and discuss both the physiological and psychological aspects of stress. It also contains recommendations for how to prevent stress from causing behavioral and health problems in dogs. The authors are at their best when they do the latter, since many of their common sense observations and suggestions provide helpful guidance for pet owners and novice trainers who may not know how to recognize the symptoms of stress in dogs, or how to help a dog that is experiencing undue stress… Regarding their anti-stress program, the authors apparently share Norwegian trainer Turid Rugaas’ ideas regarding the possible harm that can occur from too much exercise, arousing chase and retrieve games, and the use of head halters… Their discussion of these topics does raise some intriguing questions about how to make sure such common practices actually have a positive rather than a negative effect of the well being of the dogs in our care. For these reasons I would recommend this book to other trainers.” Beverly Hebert
MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
Written by expert dog trainers Martina Scholz and Clarissa von Reinhardt, Stress in Dogs: Learn How Dogs Show Stress And What You Can Do To Help is a guidebook for professional canine trainers and ordinary pet owners alike about dealing with an overstressed dog.

Straightforward instructions and color photographs walk the reader through basic techniques to help a stressed dog, means to avoid stressors that are specific to male or female dogs, guidelines for how many outings are too many and how much stimulation is too much, and much more. Numerous real-life behavior examples illustrate the points in this practical-minded, problem-solving guide to fostering a better quality of life for both dogs and their owners. James A. Cox
