Have you ever seen a child or adult approach a dog and get bitten? Or gone up to a seemingly friendly dog and been snapped at when you tried to pet him? Dogs frequently bite or snap when they are fearful or uncomfortable around unfamiliar people, and humans frequently approach in ways that are unintentionally rude and threatening.
Written by one of the leading veterinarian/animal behaviorists in the country, this book shares eight simple rules on how to greet a new dog and what to avoid. Using analogies and illustrations that make the greeting mistakes both memorable and clear, this book is appropriate for both children and adults.
