Life with a  dog who suffers

from CCD is not easy but there's much you can do to  reduce or even help him get over his fixations. Advice on triggers, causes, identifying and managing behaviours, and creating behavioural changes for the better.

It is inevitable that at some point in your dog's life he will have to undergo treatment at a veterinary surgery. Many dogs struggle with veterinary procedures, and some won't even walk into the building! So how can you help your dog tolerate being handled by veterinary staff, and how do you build resilience so he doesn't carry that negative experience forward to the next visit?

In the fifth Skinny Dog book, Toni Shelbourne provides you with the tools you need to help the fearful dog, and offers clear, detailed training plans to prepare him for veterinary intervention. Find out why your dog is scared, how to find the right vet for you and your dog, how to inhibit fear and prepare for a vet appointment, and ways to make visits easier for you, your dog and your vet.

You'll also find details of extra support you can give, calming produces and holistic options, training plans for veterinary examination, routine procedures and veterinary equipment.



Sleep is absolutely key to good physical and mental health; it can also play a vital part in the bond between you and your dog, and in the success of your training.
