Wilson the Pug has taught his many admirers--canine and otherwise--some important life lessons. And he practices what he preaches. One crisp winter day while out searching for a good deed to do for the holidays, Wilson comes across a baby pug, lost and alone. Determined to do "the right thing," as it is written in the Tao-te Ching, Wilson sets out to help his new buddy Homer, and together they embark on a quest to find the puppy a home. Their adventure takes them along comical and surprising paths, where they encounter many new friends as well as some unsavory characters who cause big trouble for the duo. Things start to look bleak for Homer until Santa Claus himself steps in to lend a hand. Homer just might get his wish after all . . . Captured in the same style of charming photography and endearing humor that so enchanted fans of The Tao of Pug, and Letters to a Young Pug, Homer for the Holidays is a heartwarming pug buddy story destined to become a holiday favorite of dog lovers of all ages for years to come.

Veterinary vaccines are given to prevent disease, yet studies show that they are often debilitating and fatal. They have been linked to auto-immune and neurological disorders, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, tumours, seizures, allergies, digestive problems, organ failure, and many other serious ailments. Many veterinarians, both conventional and holistic, are questioning the validity of annual revaccination. They are moving away from this arbitrary recommendation which is unsupported by science. Many also refuse to use certain vaccines because the disease in question is either so benign or rare that the risks associated with vaccination outweigh any promised benefit. This important book provides information on all canine and feline vaccines. It includes several personal stories of vaccine damage to family pets, as well as hundreds of studies documenting veterinary vaccine safety and efficacy problems. As a concerned pet owner, you can now make informed decisions about the health and welfare of your precious four-legged friends.

THE UNDERDOGS tells the story of Karen Shirk: felled at age 24 by a neuromuscular disease and facing life as an immobile, deeply isolated and depressed, ventilator-dependent patient, she was rejected by every service dog agency in the country as "too disabled." Her nurse encouraged her to raise her own service dog, and Ben, a German shepherd, dragged her back into life. "How many people are stranded like I was," she wondered, "who could lead productive lives with a service dog?" A thousand dogs later, Karen Shirk's service dog academy, 4 Paws for Ability, is restoring broken children and their families to life. Melissa Fay Greene tells the stories of isolated children, struggling parents, and the marvelous dogs who gallop into their lives. Into these modern wonder tales, she weaves the latest scientific discoveries about the inner lives of dogs. It turns out that dogs really are doing the astounding things they appear to do, and they're doing them for people they love. The frontiers of the human/dog bond are explored here with insight, compassion, humor, and joy. A cast of remarkable characters-scientists and felons, dog trainers and parents, children with disabilities and the great dogs themselves-together address questions about our attachment to dogs, what constitutes a productive life, and what can be accomplished with unconditional love.

R327 R266 Discovery Miles 2 660 Save R61 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Yes, humans and canines are different species, but current research provides fascinating, irrefutable evidence that what we share with our dogs is greater than how we vary. As behaviorist and zoologist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells us in this remarkable new book about emotions in dogs and in people, more and more scientists accept the premise that dogs have rich emotional lives, exhibiting a wide range of feelings including fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and love.
In For the Love of a Dog, McConnell suggests that one of the reasons we love dogs so much is that they express emotions in ways similar to humans. After all, who can communicate joy better than a puppy? But not all emotional expressions are obvious, and McConnell teaches both beginning dog owners and experienced dog lovers how to read the more subtle expressions hidden behind fuzzy faces and floppy ears.
For those of us who deeply cherish our dogs but are sometimes baffled by their behavior, For the Love of a Dog will come as a revelation-a treasure trove of useful facts, informed speculation, and intriguing accounts of man's best friend at his worst and at his very best. Readers will discover how fear, anger, and happiness underlie the lives of both people and dogs and, most important, how understanding emotion in both species can improve the relationship between them. Thus McConnell introduces us to the possibility of a richer, more rewarding relationship with our dogs.
While we may never be absolutely certain what our dogs are feeling, with the help of this riveting book we can understand more than we ever thought possible. Those who consider their dogs part of the family will find For the Love of a Dog engaging, enlightening, and utterly engrossing.

Doggy Problems Solved (Paperback): Amanda O'Neill Doggy Problems Solved (Paperback)

R298 R239 Discovery Miles 2 390 Save R59 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Doggy problems quickly turn into people problems unless dog owners come up with good solutions. Author Amanda O'Neill has those solutions, which she shares with readers and divides into several general categories for easy reference. The categories include " Antisocial Behavior, Sex Problems, Smelly Problems, Barking Problems, " and others. For example, among the problems discussed under " Antisocial Behavior " is "My Dog Wrecks My Neighbor's Garden." The problem and its solution are broken down according to possible causes, breed notes (some breeds are especially prone to digging), recommended action owners can take, and prevention. Some doggy problems are best solved by training, others by deterrent methods, and still others--like many "smelly dog" problems--by consultation with a veterinarian. Amanda O'Neill offers her advice in a friendly, highly informal style, and every page of her book is enhanced with color photos and cartoon-style illustrations.

The retrieve is one of the most difficult skills for most dogs to master in competitive obedience. It is difficult because it involves a long series of steps that the dog must learn in order to complete the exercise successfully. More and more trainers are realizing that teaching a complex series of behaviors like this is most easily done through the use of clicker training. The Clicker Retiever teaches you step-by-step how to clicker train your dog to do a solid, enthusiastic and reliable retrieve. Learning no-force techniques builds trust between you and your dog, makes training more enjoyable for both of you, and sets you up for life-long training success built on scientific principles, respect and fun. The Clicked Retriever also shows you how to apply retrieving skills to other activities such as flyball and service dog training.

Author Jim Barry dives deep into the ethical questions frequently faced by dog trainers and offers up a systematic approach to helping trainers resolve difficult dilemmas.
