    Helping minds meet (Paperback)

    Helen Zulch

    Dogs have shared our lives for thousands of years - to the benefit of both species. However, it's only relatively recently that dogs, in many societies, have lived primarily as companions within the heart of the home. This close relationship, together with society's expectations of dogs, can pose problems. All relationships have challenges, and where individuals of different species live closely together, these can be magnified, and misunderstandings occur. These can lead to fractures in the family/dog relationship, and, in some cases, result in dogs developing behaviours that are problematic for us. This unique book, written by professionals in the field, explains how and why many of these misunderstandings occur, and how we can work to resolve them. It aims to help us adjust the way we interact with our dogs, in order to help our dogs be well behaved, whilst at the same time enabling us to enjoy fulfilling relationships and a good quality of life with them. Especially commissioned images illustrate the text, and worksheets are provided to help owners focus on the areas where their dog and situation can benefit from applying the suggestions made.

    From Fearful To Fear Free (Paperback)

    M. Becker

    Almost every dog owner has a pet who suffers from fear, anxiety, and stress (FAS). They are the underlying cause of many concerning behaviors such as excessive barking, aggression, destructive behaviors, and house-soiling. They are also the source for deterioration of the human-animal bond, and can make a trip to the veterinarian, pet groomer, or boarding facility miserable for pet and owner alike. Left untreated, these negative experiences can lead to devastating consequences and permanent damage. Unfortunately, many well-meaning owners misinterpret or overlook the often subtle signs of emotional injury and turmoil, or think that the pet will simply "outgrow" it. This leads to unnecessary trauma and suffering. Common FAS triggers include: Trips to the veterinarian (even for routine services such as vaccinations and nail trims) Bath time, brushing, or cleaning ears. Loud noises; thunderstorms; fireworks; the vacuum cleaner; construction; gunshots; or even buzzers on appliances. Less-familiar people or animals encountered on walks or near the home. Being left alone during work hours or even for short errands. Travel, including car rides. Finally, there's help. From Fearful to Fear Free is based on the groundbreaking Fear Free program embraced by tens of thousands of veterinary healthcare professionals and hundreds of thousands of pet owners (fearfreepets.com and fearfreehappyhomes.com). This is the first and most authoritative book on the subject of reducing FAS and increasing "happy and calm" in dogs. Since pets communicate nonverbally, this book will help you recognize if your pet is suffering from FAS. By knowing your dog's body language, vocalizations, and changes in normal habits, you can make an accurate diagnosis and take action to prevent triggers or treat the fallout if they do happen. You'll learn: The most effective prescription sedatives for keeping dogs calm and happy during thunderstorms, fireworks, and other stressful events. The positive steps you can take to keep your pet occupied, calm, and content while you're away at work or play. Simple, practical tactics for helping your dog learn to love going to the veterinarian's office literally pulling you into the practice instead of avoiding it! How to easily groom your dog and give him medication. Tips to tame the chaos when guests arrive in your home or when your dog encounters other dogs and people on walks. Ways to tackle some of the common behavior issues that often have a root cause of FAS, while also improving your communication and bond with your pet. The three veterinary coauthors and one highly respected pet trainer have a combined 88 years of experience in the trenches of veterinary medicine, with specialties in behavior and training. By using their cutting-edge techniques, you'll have pets that are happier, healthier and live a longer, fuller life.

    Begging for it (Paperback)

    Rosamund Walters

    Your dog should not be fed on food that comes from a packet or a tin, as prepared dog foods are often of poor quality and often have been cooked at such high temperatures that the enzymes have been destroyed. Many owners are gradually beginning to appreciate that the way they feed their dog is as important as the way they feed their family. It is considered sensible to give the family, especially children, fresh meat, fish, eggs, fruit and vegetables and provide a supplement if considered to be necessary. Although there are some differences in the foods dogs require, and the way they are prepared, it is possible to feed the family pet in a similar and sensible way. Dogs do not have to eat manufactured foods - in the wild, they survived without them. Rosamund Walters spent her life believing in the natural way to feed dogs for a better life and happiness. She did not support chemical and unnatural foods which many dogs are fed today, believing the natural way is the best way for a dog to live a healthy and happy life, with the added benefit to the owner of the reduction of vets' bills due to fewer illnesses.

    Ursu (Paperback)

    Sarah Napier

    Born on the streets of Bucharest, Romania, Ursu was caught and flung into one of the country's most notorious kill shelters where miraculously, against all the odds, he survived several years before catching the eye of someone living thousands of miles away in the UK. Unwanted for the first seven years of his life, broken, terrified and unapproachable, this tells the story of how a feral and badly abused dog, already approaching his senior years, gradually learned to let go of his fears and anchor his trust in humans, the very species responsible for his years of excruciating pain and incarcerated misery. When we think about a feral canine we likely conjure up images of a dog that has never had contact with humans, possibly living its life out in forest or open landscape, not having experienced human interaction. But the meaning of feral is `wild, untamed, undomesticated, untrained' and this was Ursu, aged between seven and nine, when he was rescued in January 2015. The saying `you can't teach an old dog new tricks' is probably one of the oldest proverbial sayings around, with citations of it going back to the 16th century relating to shepherdry and the training of dogs. A saying so commonly used in today's everyday language it should act as a cautionary warning against taking a risk on an ageing dog that had never obeyed a word of human command and indeed had grown to fear people. A dog has no idea how we want it to behave. An obvious comment given we're human and a dog is a dog, but it's easy to overlook this, unconsciously relying on the innate intelligence of a dog to do the understanding. Over time, they work out for themselves the real demands we are making of them through all our mixed messages and inconsistencies, but in reality, it's our job as humans to assist a dog to become socialised and to do this kindly and in a consistent manner. A badly behaved dog isn't a bad dog; a terrified dog even less so. Get it right, and with patience and full commitment, most dogs will respond positively. Ursu is living proof.

Next, McMillan provides solutions to common canine behavior problems, including house training issues, door dashing, chewing, barking, and common mealtime misbehaviors. Lucky Dog Lessons includes easy-to-follow steps, illustrative examples, tried-and-true tips and tricks, and photographs to demonstrate each technique. Throughout the book, McMillan shares inspiring stories about his favorite students and gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the show and some of his most unique and challenging canine encounters, including some never-before-seen outtakes. Brandon McMillian believes that no dog is beyond saving, and the loving, positive, successful methods he offers will work wonders with even the most challenging dog.
