Expanded Description:

Covering proven techniques of behavior modification, Manual of Clinical Behavioral Medicine for Dogs and Cats provides a practical approach to the treatment and prevention of common canine and feline behavior problems. More than simple obedience training, this book describes both normal and undesirable behaviors and offers solutions for common small animal difficulties including digging, barking, biting, anxiety, and marking. It also discusses the role of pharmacology in behavior modification. Written by well-known veterinary behavior specialist Dr. Karen Overall, this reliable reference includes a DVD video that shows humane behavioral care and explains how dogs communicate with and learn from humans.

• Companion DVD includes a 30-minute video of the author demonstrating techniques for correcting and preventing canine behavior problems, and provides handouts to assist the pet owner with behavioral modification techniques.
• Supplemental material includes 45 client handouts, 12 informed consent forms, and 5 questionnaires that help you zero in on the pet’s behavior.

Another must have for your library, April 30, 2014
Reviewer: Marilyn Wolf
This book has so much information in it, I will have to read it multiple times to absorb it all. I had trouble printing the handouts but use them often now that I can. With the book, the DVD and the handouts, this book is well worth the price!
 
Invaluable Resource, August 14, 2013
Reviewer: Pat Miller
Veterinary Behaviorist Dr. Karen Overall is, simply put, a goddess. This long-awaited book is a must-have invaluable resource for training and behavior professionals who want accurate and scientific information about canine and feline behavior. Dr. Overall generously shares her protocols and behavioral history questionnaire and invites readers to use them. And last, but by no means least, she is one of a very small group of degreed behaviorists who are willing to openly take a stand against the use of aversives in training and behavior modification. Thank you Dr. Overall!
 
Awesome New Book!, August 14, 2013
Reviewer: Deb Walker K9-Behavior Co
I was looking for updated behavioral medicine information & discovered Dr Overall's brand new book! I read it in a week - not easy, but doable when motivated. It's awesome! I'm a dog trainer so I want to keep up on the latest research & behavior modification training & treatments so I can work with vets to help clients help their dogs. This book is phenominal! The DVD with printable training protocol handouts is priceless! The newest research on the neurochemistry of learning and behavioral disorders is incredible. The book layout is WAY easier to read and well-organized! Thanks DR Overall! Deb
