No two snowflakes are ever alike

       I'm always reading or watch DVD's to find out about working or playing with dogs. To me training dogs is not work it's fun because they learn so easily. I'm out and about training and discussing training dogs. All the books I read are for performance dogs but will help a person that would like to develop a relationship with our dog that encourages a willing and happy attitude with natural focus. DOG SPORTS SKILLS, BOOK 1: DEVELOPING ENGAGEMENT AND RELATIONSHIP  to name just one.

 

The Dog-Gone Good Cookbook: 100 Easy, Healthy Recipes for Dogs and Humans Worried about whether your leftovers are good for your pet? if you are feeing your furry baby commercial-brand dog food and want to introduce some fresh raw, or lightly cooked vegetables.

TTouch, Letting our dogs makes choices is part of this. Encouraging communication and listening to our dogs is also important, in my view. Treating your dog humanely every minute of every day is crucial. TTouch has a wonderful set of tools and techniques for building trusting relationships with our dogs (and other animals!).

 FRESH PATCH Dog Potty with REAL Grass Everything we use to get puppies started and the Pros & Cons of using them.  

Wonderful books filled with terrific resources. Not just for puppies, but really any dog that we introduce to our home. And, for that matter, it is a great resource for us if we need a "touch up" on a few issues....

 

Do you want your dog to be more active, and to run, jump, hike, and play alongside you when you exercise? Getting active begins way before you start training your dog on equipment or on agility courses. You must ramp up your daily activity, interactions, and overall health of the dog and the trainer—you!

 The Pocket Guide to Raising Your Dog Without Going Bonkers.

 Look inside. When I say "each person has to decide what their priorities are and what kinds of things in life their pooch will need to cope with and how to best prepare them," I am saying that general model or philosophy can be the same for everyone. By definition it means no two puppies would be raised alike! A working mom may decide "I need my pup to handle a lot of household activity and rambunctious kids." A herding enthusiast may decide "I need my dog to make decisions at 750 yards away from me." A northern city dweller may decide "I need my pup to be able to eliminate on pee pads when the sidewalk has 2 feet of snow, and to feel incredibly at ease with strangers when packed onto an elevator."

I think it is perfectly reasonable to modify supervision/guidance/management and specific training the person provides based on what will prepare the puppy best. All in all, that will make both the person and the pup happiest and able to enjoy each other. I made a point to emphasize that, particularly in the socialization sections of the book, so I hope that comes through. Barbara Shumannfang

 EBOOK: HELP FOR YOUR ARTHRITIC DOG

My favorite book on gait is Curtis Brown's "DOG LOCOMOTION AND GAIT ANALYSIS ", beautifully illustrated by Robert Cole. And the "DOGSTEPS" video/DVD by Rachel Page Elliott is still an excellent resource, with fascinating slow-motion sequences.

 The Eternal Gift I think animals do sometimes have characteristics, or perhaps personality traits that can run through life times. Of course each animal has it's own unique personality to be sure. Just like people do. But in talking to them I do have the idea that there are tendencies, or traits, that are a part of our unique soul. After all, it is our soul that comes with each new body, it is the essence of who we are. So if the soul has a certain "personality" (for lack of a better word), it would make sense that some of that would manifest in the new animal body. Though the personality could be quite different. Maybe Tyler (for example) is fun loving in this life, and enjoys rolling on fabric. Maybe the dog in your past life was serious, but enjoyed rolling on fabric.

Interesting stuff! Lauren McCall

THE MISUNDERSTOOD DOG: BREAK FREE OF THE MYTHS ABOUT MAN'S BEST FRIEND AND LEARN HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DOG WITH FACTS, NOT FICTION From the back cover:
Dogs aren't born knowing what's considered polite in human society - nor are they secretly out to conquer the household. Dogs have concerns like: where's the ball, when's the next walk, and is there chicken on today's menu? But people often misinterpret dog behavior and the results are frustration, training that doesn't work, and more "bad" behavior.

Dogs don't wake up with a plan to pull on leash, bark excessively, ruin the new carpet, or otherwise make our day difficult (although, it may seem like they have a plan to obtain half of our Egg McMuffin breakfast). Dogs act as they do because it works (i.e. gains them some desirable result, even if only sometimes.
