THE HOLISTIC DOG BOOK addresses your whole dog and the ways you can bring a more natural approach to your dog’s care. Whether you’re interested in essential oils, homeopathy, natural diets, herbal remedies, acupuncture, massage or emotionally satisfying training, you’ll find what you need to make well-informed decisions about what’s right for the both of you.
DOGS ON THE COUCH. Take a rather banal dog training book and heap on a few scoops of psychobabble, and you have Larry Lachman and Frank Michadeit’s Dogs on the Couch. The authors’ gimmick is to interpret and handle dog misbehavior via a psychotherapeutic perspective. On the one hand, the presentation is sort of clever. On the other, the metaphor doesn’t quite work to breathe life into an otherwise unremarkable book.
CATS ON THE COUNTER. Cats are wonderful companions, but when they misbehave it can be challenging, if not outright difficult, to successfully treat the behavior problem in order to restore feline harmony to the home once again. In Cats on the Counter Dr. Larry Lachman uses his unique approaches, borrowed from human therapy, to analyze what makes kitty tick, and what happens when his behavior gets out of control.
