In Germany alone, 200,000 dogs change their home each year. Each of them comes with a history that has shaped it. This comprehensive handbook on training and behaviour presents the special knowledge that owners of second-hand dogs need, from familiarisation to creating a connection and up to behavioural problems. Many use cases from the authors’ practice show how you react appropriately to problems. Valuable also for employees of animal shelters and in animal welfare.
