Have you ever wondered why dogs are considered ‘man’s best friend?’ In this book, Psychologist Dr Christopher Blazina explains the importance of the unique bond between men and dogs. There are widely-held beliefs that males naturally transition into a state of self-imposed seclusion and emotional detachment in adulthood. Even relying on another person violates the rules of being a man. When Man Meets Dog explores how the bond with animal companions bypasses many of these barriers, helping males develop into happier, healthier men. What a difference a dog can make! It’s also important to discuss the other side of attachment: loss. Again, the mixed messages men receive lead to difficulties with managing grief. When Man Meets Dog is the first book to discuss men’s continuing bonds with a lost animal companion. A continuing bond is a new way of reconnecting and preserving the memory of this unique connection. When Man Meets Dog is a memoir with a purpose. Chris shares his very personal story of how two shelter dogs not only changed the direction of his life, but also how he defines what it means to be a man.

51 Puppy Tricks gives puppy owners the tools they need to teach behaviors and tricks to their puppy through step-by-step instructions and photographs. Most other puppy training books focus on curbing bad behavior. Some have training, but only the most basic tricks. Kyra’s curriculum differs from that of 101 Dog Tricks in that the instructions are geared for the less mature dog. Young puppies are not yet well-tuned to humans, and respond better to a clicker than to a voice. Also, young puppies have so few skills that everyone benefits from a technique called “shaping” which breaks a behavior into minute steps for easier learning. And, of course, puppies receive extra gentle care when we teach, focused more on instilling a love of learning and a communication pathway rather than accomplishing the goal behavior.

Children and dogs both benefit mentally and physically from a harmonious relationship. Dogs help to develop empathy and social skills in children, as well as build their confidence. It is, however, important to also develop this confidence in our dogs, and prepare them to be around babies and children. Bite prevention is vital, and, therefore, we need to teach our dogs and children how to behave correctly around and with each other. Babies, Kids and Dogs will advise how to create safe, positive and harmonious relationships between children and dogs, allowing a dog to relax in the presence of children. Included within are instructional colour photographs, tables to assist with assessing and training your dog, and step-by-step exercises. Educational Champ and Charlie illustrations help engage the interest of young children, in order to teach them about behaving appropriately when interacting with their canine friends. Throughout, the book suggests ways to promote safe interactions, and develop lifelong friendships. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial}

Dogs aren't born knowing what's considered polite in human society--nor are they secretly out to conquer the household. Dogs have concerns like: where's the ball, when's the next walk, and is there chicken on today's menu? But people often misinterpret dog behavior and the results are frustration, training that doesn't work, and more "bad" behavior. In this accessible and often humorous book, certified dog trainer and behavior counselor Jordan Rothman tells dog lovers how to take advantage of their human smarts (the only training tool they need), to be well on the way to a refined canine. In straightforward prose, the author addresses: -The myths that surround dogs and how they affect us. -The causes of common dog behavior problems, and the solutions. -How reading dog body language makes life with dogs easier. -Human tendencies that get in the way of dog training efforts. Learn how to use modern, humane, science-based dog training methods to train a dog through everyday interactions. The tools of the trade are fun, games, and play to encourage and reward behaviors you like. In one fell swoop the dog training process becomes easier, more enjoyable, and more efficient. The Misunderstood Dog is a simple, practical guide for anyone who shares a home with a pet dog, whether puppy or adult, purebred or mixed breed.

Dogs have been mankind's faithful companions for tens of thousands of years, yet today they are regularly treated as either pack-following wolves or furry humans. The truth is, dogs are neither--and our misunderstanding has put them in serious crisis. What dogs really need is a spokesperson, someone who will assert their specific needs. Renowned anthrozoologist Dr. John Bradshaw has made a career of studying human-animal interactions, and in Dog Sense he uses the latest scientific research to show how humans can live in harmony with--not just dominion over-- their four-legged friends. From explaining why positive reinforcement is a more effective (and less damaging) way to control dogs' behavior than punishment to demonstrating the importance of weighing a dog's unique personality against stereotypes about its breed, Bradshaw offers extraordinary insight into the question of how we really ought to treat our dogs.
