Is your dog happy? How do you know? What motivates your dog and how can you make sure you're being a good human to your furry companion? Any dog owner likes to think their dog is happy but a recent study about dogs being hugged shows that many people interpret the signs incorrectly and don't know how to recognise anxiety in their animal. Making Dogs Happy is an illustrated handbook to getting to know your dog better for a happy and fulfilled household. Learn how to tell what motivates your individual dog and you can train your dog accordingly. Written by a veterinarian and a leading dog trainer, it introduces the idea of dogmanship - the ability to interact with and train dogs. Fully photographed, demonstrating key behaviours of dozens of furry charmers, it's the one handbook no dog lover can go past
Equine Behavior: A guide for Veterinarians and Equine Scientists is the quintessential reference for all who really want to know what makes horses tick. Research in horse behavior has made great strides in recent years. This book examines the truth behind modern trends and ancient traditions. Full of insight, it rounds up the latest findings of practitioners and researchers from all over the world, drawing on both cutting-edge research and best practice. With more than 1,000 references, the book explores equine behavior from first principles, by considering the behavior of free-ranging horses and focusing on ways in which management and training influence the responses of their domestic counterparts. Equine physicians, trainers, handlers and owners all need to be students of equine behavior, because the first sign of a problem is often a change in behavior. So, whether you own, ride, lead, groom, feed or heal horses, what you observe is vital to your understanding. Behavioral problems in the stable and under saddle are a grave concern for equine veterinarians worldwide, because they can lead to poor performance, welfare issues, abuse and, ultimately, wastage. Traditionally, veterinarians gave priority to the physical health of their equine patients. This book is a unique attempt to demonstrate the way science can throw light on how and why problems and unwelcome behaviors arise. It also offers ways to bring about change for the better. Beautifully illustrated with more than 500 photographs and line diagrams, Equine Behavior: A guide for veterinarians and equine scientists is an essential resource for practising veterinarians, students and enthusiasts with a specific interest in horses, ponies, and donkeys. Professional trainers and handlers, equine scientists and behavior therapists will also find its contents invaluable. Paul McGreevy is Senior Lecturer in Animal Behavior at the University of Sydney's Faculty of Veterinary Science Features a practical, hands-on approach to all aspects of equine behavior Discusses all factors that effect equine behavior Contrasts normal behavior with abnormal behavior Reviews all behavioral problems Lists and reviews the latest drug therapies Addresses difficult-to-treat clinical problems such as head-shaking, with insights from the leading researcher in this area Provides a brief clinical evaluation of 'horse-whispering' Illustrates the key behavioral differences between horses and donkeys
Dog-keeping may be as old as hunting, grunting and cave-painting, but keeping domestic dogs in family homes is a complex business. One family may lavish attention on their dog while another virtually ignores theirs. One person within a family may be a great trainer while another, within the same household, may be inconsistent or incompetent. Written with clarity and humour, ""A Modern Dog's Life"" offers a new approach to owning and training a dog, drawing on the latest research on dog behaviour and the author's expertise as a vet and animal behaviourist, to explain why dog's behave they way they do. The book takes the time to explore the challenges for the modern dog (and their owners) while exploring what motivates dogs, how to train them effectively, and how to meet their needs for fun and exercise. In short, it is the thinking person's book for dog lovers. It will appeal to every dog owner, vet, trainer or breeder that is genuinely interested in dogs and wants to understand why they behave the way they do. ""A Modern Dog's Life"" also explains how our own behavior can be mystifying to dogs, and establishes why dogs may never comprehend some of our habits. It examines features of dog management that many owners struggle to get right - and sets out some blunt home truths about the realities of keeping a dog. Ultimately, ""A Modern Dog's Life"" is for anyone who wants to understand more about their dog. Its aim is to help you to become a better dog-watcher, team-player, care-giver, companion and life-coach by knowing when and how to intervene. Although 'dog books' abound there are few that address why dog's behave they way do in a scientific yet accessible way. This book provides true insight into dog behaviour offering practical tips and advice throughout.
