The ebullient Dibra relays such infinite dedication to, and compassion for, man's best friend that readers cannot help sharing them. Drawing examples from his vast experience with New York City dog owners (whose prominent nam es clutter these pages), with performing dogs (he's trained more than 1000) and with his thoroughly trained wolf, Mariah (to whom the book is dedicate d), Dibra with Family Circle columnist Randolph assesses the potential pet' s temperament; training for basic obedience; off-leash work, guard duty and performing; solving aggression-related disorders, and more. All the while encouraging the reader to "try to figure out what your dog is perceiving an d feeling," he also outlines specific strategies for particularly thorny pr oblems, such as "deprogramming" an adult German shepherd that had been empl oyed as a guard dog.
