About the Book


You asked for it–and Amy Shojai delivers! This 3rd Edition has been expanded to include more detailed prescriptive how-to advice. Use these fun techniques to calm fears, explain pet body language, and strengthen the bond you share with cats and dogs–while hushing the “hissy” fits and promoting a peaceable kingdom. Step by step tips from this award-winning author and certified animal behavior consultant explain how to:

  • Recognize and diffuse cat-dog aggression
  • Settle disputes over territory, potty problems and mealtime woes
  • Choose an appropriate furry friend that resident pets welcome with open “paws”
  • Introduce the new arrival to the current pets
  • Solving common pet peeves: barking, chewing, clawing, jumping up, digging and more!

More than 30 million U.S. households double their pleasure by welcoming both cats and dogs into their homes. Yet mixing the two can mean trouble in paradise, especially if you treat your cat like your dog, or vice versa. Cats and dogs are two very different animals with distinctive needs and they cannot—and must not—be treated in the same way.

Fun, practical, and eminently informative, Competability briefly looks at the biological, evolutionary, and behavioral differences between cats and dogs to devise strategies for owners that enable the two species to live in harmony within the same household. Written by one of America’s premier pet experts, the book explains everything an owner of a cat and dog should know. Most important, Competability provides crucial tips on how to evaluate and match your pets’ personalities, improve their relationships, and make your home a sanctuary for pet fun and peace.
