This book will help you to achieve the best possible relationship with your dog. It explains the best way to motivate, lead and interact with dogs and how to simply enjoy the time together. Based on common-sense and empathy, the advice given to you in this book is also give from a purely ethnic point of view that is based on the so-called Preventions of Cruelty to Animals Act, official rules and recommendations. Moreover, modern ethology, which has shown us how dogs live naturally and what needs they have, plays a big role.
Since 2004 in the UK, the Centre of Applied Animal Ethology (COAPE) has been developing EMRA™, a revolutionary and highly successful way of treating behaviour problems in companion animals. EMRA™ is based on emotional assessment of the individual dog or cat rather than the quasi-diagnoses of behaviour problems of old that have often lead to standardised and unnecessarily complicated approaches to treatment.
