Expanded Description:

When dogs growl at other dogs, lunge at people and bark at everything it's often mislabeled as “aggression.” But behavior that looks like aggression is often fear-based and should be treated as such. The appropriate term for this constellation of behaviors is “reactivity.”

This book helps dog owners and trainers to understand the reactive dog and help him change for the better. The process is easy to grasp, and once the changes begin to take shape, owners become so encouraged that improving their dog's behavior suddenly becomes fun and exciting! If your dog can't pay attention to you in public places, doesn't behave like a good member of the family when guests visit, and looses control when other dogs are nearby, this book has a lot to offer.

All training methods and classroom techniques are non-force and based on developing a ‘working relationship’ with your dog. Easy to read and understand, 148 pages, with 68 photographs and graphics to help you improve behavior and solve problems.

This 2009 edition includes more specific examples, and more and better photos to give you a better idea of what to look for and how to handle your reactive dog.
You will learn:
• Easy to read and implement how-to book on fearful and reactive dogs
• Many pictures to illustrate key points
• Originally published in 2004, and revised and expanded in 2009
• How to develop a simple program addressing the stimuli which cause fear

Scaredy Dog addresses a very common issue in pet dogs today. Ali’s user friendly book is chock full of effective ways to work with a reactive dog.

invaluable, November 16, 2010
Reviewer: Tamara Dormer
As a professional dog trainer, one of the things that is hardest for me to explain to people when working with fearful dogs is to go slowly, as slow as the dog needs. This book not only has several great training ideas to help a reactive dog, but is also explicit in how slow you may need to go to really help the dog. Anyone with a fearful/reactive dog should have this book on their shelf!
 
wonderfully helpful, June 6, 2009
Reviewer: Shanna Jones
This book has many insightful tips that have helped me with my reactive dog. Ali Brown's method of writing really enabled me to break down my dog's behavior into manageable sessions when I thought I might just be in over my head. It is a very empowering experience to get a handle on an overwhelming situation and start making noticable headway towards a well-behaved, balanced dog. This book touches on the majority of situations that I was having trouble with and is a good starting point for gaining understanding and control.
 
Very helpful, January 22, 2009
Reviewer: Michele Ocejo
I found this book very informative and helpful in our journey to rehabilitating our rescue bulldog who is reactive and was having fearful aggression issues. There IS hope! Six months ago I didn't think we would be able to have my family over for the holidays and on CHristmas he greeted everyone happily with NO issues even when my brother-in-law (or who used to cause reactions) got very animated.
