Summary: Unbelievably, there has never been a comprehensive training-and-retraining guide written for the adopted or ``pre-owned'' dog. Manuals abound for the puppy, even for the needs of the adult or mature dog, but Adopting a Dog has established itself as the standard work for this exploding population. John Ross and Barbara McKinney provide a comprehensive guide to every kind of adoptable dog--the older puppy, the overactive or unhousebroken adult dog, the shelter pooch, and even the mature canine in need of one last, loving home. The authors provide reliable advice on: * determining which adoptable dog is right for which home * finding and using reputable breed associations, rescue organizations, and pounds * retraining approaches to cure obsessive barking, separation anxiety, housebreaking problems, and fear biting * overcoming the scars of previous abuse. Adopting a Dog is sure to be a standard reference work for any dog owner's home.
