This book provides a comprehensive overview of the most critical components of a successful human-animal relationship, and provides a framework to understand the behavior, communication patterns, and learning techniques that govern social interactions. Well-researched and accessible, Canine and Feline Behavior: A Complete Guide to Understanding Our Two Best Friends is an application-based resource to encourage effective training and behavior modification programs for both dogs and cats. Coverage begins with a foundation of evolutionary histories and domestication, focusing on normal communication and social behavior patterns. Learning theory is then presented in the context of real-world relevance to companion animal care, behavior prevention, training, and modification. Finally, common behavior problems and approaches to manage these issues are discussed, making this an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand more about their dogs and cats.
