Warnings about malicious poisoning have been a major concern among dog owners for some time now. You might like to think “it won't happen to me”, but it's becoming increasingly clear that the danger lurks right outside our own front door. Laying down bait laced with poison or embedded with razor blades seems to have almost become a trend among dog-haters - and not just in cities. This book gives worried dog owners a well-thought-out, effective training plan to protect their dog and transform him from a hairy vacuum cleaner into a good dog who points out tempting treats instead of wolfing them down. The author also shows why some well-intentioned advice doesn't work. With preventative measures from muzzle-training to emergency signals in case your dog does manage to pick up something, the book offers practical help until training becomes established.
