One of the five practicing animal psychologists in the country, Dr. Tortora has observed some highly neurotic dogs, and his text offers Solutions to Your Dog's Behavior Problems--and not just the old chase-the-mailman routine. Like Dr. Tanzer in Your Pet Isn't Sick (p. 338), he knows that most symptoms can be traced to the rewards--inadvertent or recognized--that a family bestows on its four-footed friend. But while Tanzer is playful as a puppy, Tortora is dead serious, recommending umpteen steps for each modification of behavior and tossing around phrases like consummatory components, response deficits, and organismic variables. He acknowledges that reprogramming a pet is tedious work and few dogs--like their ""masters""--have only one problem. Too much text except for those conditioned to experimental psychology techniques.
