Companion animal behavior therapy is an area of veterinary expertise that has expanded dramatically over the last few years. Increasingly pet owners are looking to their veterinarians for answers about why animals behave the way they do. More importantly, there is great interest in curbing negative or abnormal behavior, and encouraging positive behavior in companion animals. Still, in spite of the increased interest and need, there are few scientifically based textbooks on the subject. The new text Principles of Companion Animal Behaviour Therapy fills this void. In it, all facets of companion animal behavior are examined from a scientific base, giving students and professionals the information they need to understand this complex subject. This volume is a comprehensive textbook, providing the basic concepts needed to solve behavior problems in companion animals. The text concentrates on the underlying principles of development for normal and abnormal behaviors; building on the idea that one must understand normal behavior before true understanding of abnormal behavior can ensue. Readers learn how behavior problems arise and are shown how to develop rational methods for treatment. Veterinarians, veterinary students, veterinary technicians, animal behavior scientists, breeders, trainers, and students of animal science all will benefit from this fundamental, much-needed text.
