The whole concept of dog training is broken, giving us an incomplete picture of our dogs and their behaviors, but Meet Your Dog is the first, long-overdue step in reinventing it. Award-winning certified canine behavior consultant Kim Brophey introduces a comprehensive framework known as L.E.G.S (Learning, Environment, Genetics, Self) to explain all four aspects of a dog’s behavior. When these are in balance, they work in harmony, but if not, they can create discord or disaster. This book is a groundbreaking opportunity for dog lovers to fully understand their dogs, and form truly authentic relationships with them.

Meet Your Dog is an original book that will lead even the best of us dog people to think about both dog behavior and our own behavior in new ways. It is an important book that creates a bridge between behavior science and its daily practical application by dog owners and trainers. I truly wish I had had this book to read fifty years ago.
author of Dogs: A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior, and Evolution, What is a Dog?, and How Dogs Work
It's refreshing to finally find a book that takes into consideration the many predispositions to behavior problems in dogs. Many written works and theories do not take this into account, yet it is one of the major keys to understanding, and subsequently changing, canine behavior. This book is unique as it considers the whole dog. Dogs are different. They have different personalities and breeds have specific tendencies. Kim does not ignore this. On the contrary, she teaches us simple and practical ways to use these differences and tendencies to not only give dogs a better life, but also to have a more harmonious relationship with their human. This publication is a game changer because it teaches us to really see the dog in its entirety. It present us with a framework to understand all the major factors that are essential in understanding canine behavior.
