Japanese dog grooming does not follow the rules of traditional, breed- standard grooming. In fact, it only has one mission-to make dogs look as adorable as possible! With extreme attention to detail and careful consideration of a pup's best attributes, Japanese dog groomers and salons achieve the perfect transformation by forgetting uniform looks and getting creative. From internationally acclaimed pet photographer and author of Waggish: Dogs Smiling for Dog Reasons comes this adorable book, which showcases the transformation of dogs going from cute to cutest. Originally a viral photo series called "Hairy," Grace Chon's work perfectly captures the whimsy and glamour of freshly groomed furry friends. With nearly 50 before- and- afters, Chon proves that Japanese dog grooming is not just a haircut, but a work of art.

When Gina came into Ottilie's life she hadn't expected to fall in love and thought that was all behind her. She was unprepared for the emotional turmoil that would overcome her. For a start, Gina was a fox - or that's what people said she was. How could she become so in love with a dog - which didn't even look like one - when she had a husband and two children of her own? As we follow Ottilie's love affair with Gina, we identify with the emotions and share a heart-stopping anxiety when Gina goes missing. Ottilie has no wish to disguise her own state of besotted affection, and this beautifully observed study of human and dog is viscerally real. It will appeal to anyone who has ever had a dog, cat, budgie - or even a fox. Talking to Gina, a debut graphic memoir, has been based on hundreds of daily drawn records of Ottilie Hainsworth's life. Her command of facial expressions and body language, of both humans and dogs, combined with a beautifully simple and fluid penstroke, and the direct, heartfelt epistolary text, draw the reader in to feel her love and pain.

The answers to all these questions and more are revealed in What Your Dog's Breed Says About You.

More than fifteen years ago, Tamar Geller began her career as a dog trainer by observing a scientific study of wolves in the wild. She realized that the socialization and parenting techniques they used to raise their cubs were rooted in bonding, communication, and play--not in aggression, dominance, or punishment. If people used these techniques when training their dogs, she realized, there would be no need for prong collars, choke chains, or any kind of physical or verbal aggression. She realized we can make it "fun" for our dogs to listen to us and behave as we want them to.
Tamar went on to train the dogs of many celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Ben Affleck, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Nicollette Sheridan, Owen Wilson, the Osbournes, and others. Her nonaggressive methods are so revolutionary that the Humane Society of the United States approached her to be a consultant, and she now teaches animal behavior at Pepperdine University.
In "The Loved Dog, " Tamar shows anyone how to childproof a dog, teach him vocabulary, use treats the right way, play "tug of war" to build trust, make it fun for him to come when called, teach him not to jump on people, and much more--using only playful bonding and positive reinforcement.

Dogs have been at the heart of Country Life magazine ever since it was first published in 1897. The very first issue on January 8 featured the Princess of Wales with her borzoi, Alex. The second issue, a week later, went behind the scenes of the Prince of Wales's kennels. Since then every type, from working dogs to pampered pets and champion pedigrees to mixed breeds have been included. There is no doubt that dogs, whatever shape or size, are at the heart of British country life. Posh Dogs features a selection of canines that have graced the pages of Country Life magazine from those early years to the present day. They have been chosen to select different facets of country life and whether `upstairs' and `downstairs' they are all equal in their owner's eyes. Posh Dogs celebrates dogs in their element amidst the timeless beauty of the British countryside. The dogs of Downton Abbey garnered as many fans as the cast. The dogs featured in Posh Dogs are the real life incarnations of the Earl of Grantham's beloved labrador and all the other dogs of Downton. This is a must-have gift book for all dog lovers.
