We live with dogs, and play with them, and train them - but how much do we really understand them? What are they really thinking and feeling? This book is an exploration of dog emotions, and our emotions, and what that means for the care and training of our canine friends. As well as asking 'What are emotions?', this book also shows that our dogs are sentient, conscious beings. Parts two and three of Our Emotional Dogs include personal reflections from dog owners and dog professionals.


"This is a really unusual book full of true-life stories of people introducing dogs into their homes and how both they and the dog coped. I found it really interesting to compare experiences with other dog owners." - Lisa S

"Sarah is a fantastic dog trainer and her knowledge of canine behaviour really shines through in this book. Definitely well worth reading." - Katie A

"Very interesting insight into our dog's behaviour and how they might be thinking. It helped me understand how I could change things for the better." - Paul

Help! My Dog Has Issues is your guide to canine psychology, and dog-owner psychology (since we make up half of the team). This book covers everything from your dog's genetic ancestry, to the common causes of 'bad' behaviour. There's a ten-point plan to work through, to help you create solutions that are right for you and your dog.

This second edition of Help! My Dog Has Issues, has three new sections which focus on complex and distressing problems: grumpiness towards other dogs/ people/ animals etc when on a walk; separation anxiety; and toilet-training issues.

Praise for Help! My Dog has Issues:

"This is a gem of a book for anyone with a dog, or even thinking about getting a dog. Sensitively written, Sarah really helps you see the world from your dogs point of view as well as your own, making understanding their behaviour so much easier, shedding light on problems which otherwise can be difficult to figure out. Great practical advice on finding a way forward for you and your dog. Highly recommended!" - Dawn M
