ComPETability (cats and Dogs)eBook - 2013
"Cat behavior and behavior of dogs puzzles the most savvy pet owners, and pet behavior problems lose dogs and cats their homes. Animal behavioral problems arise out of owners not understanding dog language or cat language, and misunderstanding normal animal behavior. Training a dog helps stop dog barking, for instance, while behavior modification redirects cat clawing but this book explains why dogs bark and the reason cats scratching behavior is normal. You?ll learn how to understand and manage the behavior of dogs and kitty behavior whether you have a single pet, a clowder of cats or canine pack, or one or more of both cats and dogs. More than 30 million U.S. households double their pleasure by welcoming both cats and dogs into their homes. Yet mixing the two can mean trouble in paradise, especially if you treat your cat like your dog, or vice versa. Cats and dogs are two very different animals with distinctive animal behavioral needs and they cannot?and must not?be treated in the same way. From conflicts over favorite sleep spots, sharing potty facilities, resource guarding toys or jealous pets when sharing your attention, adding new pets rubs fur the wrong way and creates hairy situations for everyone?including you. This 3rd edition guide gives owners the ability to understand dog behavior as well as prescriptive how-to advice on the most common cat behavioral problems when cats and dogs live together. The book includes information about aggressive dog behavior, dog language, positive dog obedience training techniques, how to stop dog biting and prevent dog behavioral problems, understanding feline body language and cat hisses, dealing with cat litter box problems, cat nutrition and feeding challenges around dogs, and more." --Provided by the publisher.
