Better Dog Behaviour

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1815193&cjsku=1815193...
Many dog owners in the UK don't understand the dynamics of human/dog relationships and consequently experience problems with their pets, such as barking, aggression, chasing livestock, chewing, pulling and running away. Experienced dog trainer Debbie Connolly shows new and experienced dog owners alike how to deal with such behaviour problems, so that the dog can become a safe and happy member of their family. Debbie recounts real-life anecdotes to get across the serious point that you are playing with your dog's life, if you can't or won't learn to treat your dog appropriately.Some of the stories she tells are funny, some are sad, but all of them are easy for her readers to identify with and relate to. She explains how to get a dog from the right source and how to live with it afterwards.She gives practical advice on how to solve all the common problems dog owners face. And she isn't afraid to raise important issues that others avoid - issues that dog owners actually face in the real world, for example, when you should give up and put your dog to sleep.

Dog Behaviour, Evolution, and Cognition

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=786848&cjsku=786848...
This is the first book to collate and synthesize the recent burgeoning primary research literature on dog behaviour, evolution, and cognition. The author presents a new ecological approach to the understanding of dog behaviour, demonstrating how dogs can be the subject of rigorous and productive scientific study without the need to confine them to a laboratory environment. Dog Behaviour, Evolution and Cognition starts with an overview of the conceptual and methodological issues associated with the study of the dog, followed by a brief description of their role in human society-almost a third of human families share their daily life with the dog! An evolutionary perspective is then introduced with a summary of current research into the process of domestication. The central part of the book is devoted to issues relating to the cognitive aspects of. behaviour which have received particular attention in recent years from both psychologists and ethologists. The book's final chapters introduce the reader to many novel approaches to dog behaviour, set in the context of behavioural development and genetics. Directions for future research are highlighted throughout the text which also incorporates links to human and primate research by drawing on homologies and analogies in both evolution and behaviour. The book will therefore be of relevance and use to anyone with an interest in behavioural ecology including graduate students of animal behaviour and cognition, as well as a more general audience of dog enthusiasts, biologists, psychologists and sociologists.

Model Behaviour

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1634171&cjsku=1634171...
'I'm sick of all this pointless glamour,' his glamorous girlfriend said. 'I want a simple life.' If only Connor McNab had listened. Now Philomena is off to California, allegedly on a fashion shoot, but he doesn't know where she is staying and a sinking feeling tells him that she might never come back. Connor's friend Jeremy Green is no help: he is the 'famous short-story writer' (which they both agree is an oxymoron) with an imminent publication date and some people holding his dog to ransom for reasons too Machiavellian to blurb. Connor's sister Brook, genius mathematician and anorexic, is too busy anguishing over Rwanda and Bosnia. His editor at Ciao Bella is only concerned about the suddenly elusive celebrity of the month. Thanks goodness for Pallas, a knock-out table dancer with a heart of gold.

Practical Canine Behaviour

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1814163&cjsku=1814163...
There have been ground-breaking advances in our understanding of canine behaviour in recent years. Traditional theories, based on the premise that a desire to be ‘pack leader’ drives all dog behaviour, have made way for a new and fascinating insight into the subtleties and complexities of canine communication, social behaviour and emotional drives. Keeping abreast of such developments is becoming increasingly essential for veterinary nurses and technicians, both to fulfil client expectations and to protect canine welfare. Yet current training worldwide typically offers little teaching in this area. In this book Stephanie Hedges draws on more than 20 years as a practicing veterinary nurse and her specialist knowledge as a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB) to provide a quick reference and practically relevant canine behaviour resource to meet the specific needs of the general practice nurse or technician.

Anyone interested in breeding, training, or canine behavior must own this book."Wayne Hunthausen, D.V.M., Director of Animal Behavior Consultations "This pioneering research on dog behavioral genetics is a timeless classic for all serious students of ethology and canine behavior."Dr. Michael Fox, Senior Advisor to the President, The Humane Society of the United States "A major authoritative work. . . . Immensely rewarding reading for anyone concerned with dog-breeding." Times Literary Supplement "The last comprehensive study [of dog behavior] was concluded more than thirty years ago, when John Paul Scott and John L. Fuller published their seminal work Genetics and the Social Behavior of the Dog." Mark Derr, The Atlantic Monthly "Genetics and the Social Behavior of the Dog is essential reading for anyone involved in the breeding of dogs.

Think Dog

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=940251&fc=GB&cjsku=940251...
In this seminal pet psychology book, John Fisher examines the mind of the dog with examples taken from his practical experience, with the aim of explaining to owners how the world appears from a dog's point of view.The first section of the book traces the ancestry and inherent behaviour of dogs, from their origins as pack animals related to the wolf or the jackal. The second part examines what most people describe as problem behaviour, which is just normal canine behaviour exhibited in the wrong place. The book concludes with an A-Z of common problems, their causes and cures.In the 1980s and 1990s John Fisher revolutionised dog training, first in England, then in the US. With his self-deprecating manner and 'Oh! So British' sense of humour he taught us to 'Think Dog'.
