Poodle: Training, Grooming, and Dog Care

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2176322&cjsku=2176322...
ABOUT THE BOOK A dog is a bond between strangers. John Steinbeck When you own a poodle, you are guaranteed to attract attention. Thanks to its elegant posture and prancing gait, your dog will stand out in a crowd; thanks to the breed's gregarious nature, it will charm everyone it meets. The poodle is a companion dog par excellence: intelligent and witty, devoted to its pack members, and eager to please. It is the only breed that comes in three sizes: toy, miniature, and standard. There is a poodle for every activity level and lifestyle. Yet there is also no breed of dog more misunderstood than the poodle. Despite the fussy and sometimes preposterous styling of their coat, the dog underneath was a working breed originally used to retrieve waterfowl. The traditional clip, with its poufs and leonine mane, protected the internal organs and joints from the frigid water into which the dogs dove after fallen ducks and geese. True to its heritage, the poodle is a real dog that excels at any number of jobs. Poodles have been used to detect cancer, as therapy and rescue dogs, and even as police dogs. While the miniatures have a long history as circus performers, poodles also are stars at agility and flyball. Standards are still being bred as hunting dogs, with a revival of interest in using them for this purpose. But for most prospective owners, the important question is, Do poodles make good pets? To that, the answer is an unequivocal yes! Standards in particular are excellent family dogs, having great tolerance and affection for children, while the smaller breeds make perfect companions for people with less mobility. The poodle is a happy, fun-loving, and enthusiastic dog, who brightens his owners' days. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Poodles now range in size from teacup to quite large, as selective breeding pushes the limits at both ends of the spectrum. There are three recognized sizes in the United States: toy (under 10 at the shoulder), miniature (at least 10 but less than 15), and standard (at least 15). Although the sizes all fall in the same breed category, with the same conformation standards and disposition, there are some basic differences. Standards probably make the best family dogs. Although they are large, with adult males pushing the upper limit of 30 at the shoulder and weighing over 70 pounds, they tend to do well with one long walk a day and regular opportunities to play and/or train. They are said to be more aloof than the smaller poodles, but my standard is a lovable oaf of a dog who greets all people and dogs he meets with reckless enthusiasm, and many other owners that I meet report that the same is true of their dogs. Training while they are still young will help this dog to develop good manners and to focus the excessive prey drive that some of these standards have. Miniatures make excellent companion dogs; unlike standards, which bond more or less equally with all members of the family, they tend to attach to one p

Boxer: Training, Grooming, and Dog Care

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2177011&cjsku=2177011...
ABOUT THE BOOK Possibly one of the most famous of dog breeds, the Boxer is a descendant of the Bulldog, and is native to Germany. Because it is a descendant of an ancient fighting breed, the Boxer has often been kept as a guard-dog, as well as being used by police and military throughout the world. The Boxer's athleticism and intelligence meant that for many years these dogs were also trained as hunting dogs. The Boxer owes its name to the fighting stance the dog takes when battling with its opponents. It stands on its hind legs and appears to box its opponents with its front paws in a stance similar to that of a boxer. Today, Boxers are popular not for their fighting qualities, but rather their calm and loyal nature. Boxers are intelligent, fun-loving, and great with children, making this breed the ideal family dog. It has also been used as a "seeing-eye" dog due to those same characteristics. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK If your Boxer behaves aggressively, it is usually because of a perceived threat to its own welfare or the welfare of its family. Aggression is not to be confused with bad behavior such as jumping up on people, incessant barking or digging holes in the garden. These are behavioral issues which can be addressed by training. Dogs are driven by instinct and the environment. Many of the things we ask dogs to do, such as sitting still, are counter intuitive. A successful relationship between a dog and its owner is built upon obedience. When a dog has been trained to know the difference between acceptable and unacceptable behavior socializing with adult humans is not a problem. Kids Dogs have a natural protective instinct toward children. The evolutionary process has ensured that dogs are compelled to protect human infants. As with humans, some dogs enjoy the company of children, and some dogs less so. There are numerous factual and anecdotal accounts of the extremely close relationships between dogs and kids...

Great Dane: Training, Grooming, and Dog Care

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2176962&cjsku=2176962...
This book is part of Hyperink's best little books series. This best little book is over 3,600 words of fast, entertaining information on a highly demanded topic. Based on reader feedback (including yours!), we may expand this book in the future. If we do so, we'll send a free copy to all previous buyers. ABOUT THE BOOK Great Danes, sometimes known as German Mastiffs, are powerful dogs with robust, galloping figures and a majestic stance. Their even temper combined with their charming and affectionate nature often leads them to be referred to as gentle giants. The lineage of the Great Dane can be traced back to at least 36 B.C. where images of the breed appeared on Roman coins. It is possible that their history goes back even further. The American Kennel Club reports how historians have found ancient carvings of animals resembling the Great Dane on Egyptian monuments dated around 3000 B.C. Chinese literature from 1121 B.C. also provides a written description of dogs similar to Great Danes. One of the tallest dog breeds in the world, the Great Dane could never be described as diminutive in stature. Although the breed is often characterized alongside other giant dog breeds like the Old English Mastiff, New Foundland and the Saint Bernard, in practice it is often a Great Dane that is announced to be the tallest living dog in any one year. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Crate training can be useful when housetraining a Great Dane. A crate with warm bedding and chew toys will allow your dog to indulge in his natural instincts to make a den. Dogs are reluctant to soil the area in which they sleep. Crates must always be introduced gradually and should never be used as a punishment. Keep in mind that the crate will need to be sufficiently large enough to accommodate the rapid growth and size of a Great Dane. Socializing Your Great Dane It is imperative that you properly socialize a Great Dane puppy. This process will ensure the emotional health of your dog and the physical safety of people and other animals. You should aim to introduce your dog to a wide variety of people, animals and environments. A Great Dane socialized in this manner will be a happier, more confident dog and less prone to skittish behavior. The process of socializing your Great Dane should start by introducing him to many different people who should be encouraged to pet him and offer a small treat. Your dog will learn to associate the people around him with positive experiences... Buy a copy to keep reading!
