Written by four powerhouses in the world of veterinary medicine and behavior, this informative manual takes an in-depth look at fear: an issue that dog owners frequently encounter yet don't often understand. Dr. Marty Becker and his esteemed colleagues deliver a comprehensive look at Dr. Becker's Fear-Free(tm) program, developed on the premise that anxiety and fear can impede thorough veterinary care as well as other significant aspects of a companion animal's life. Filled with anecdotes from the authors' own experiences, detailed techniques, and helpful resources, this book can be a lifesaver for owners dealing with fearful dogs.
