ITS A DOG NOT A TOASTER

ITS A DOG NOT A TOASTER

Author - Diana Kerew-Shaw - Publisher - Dogwise

Most books on competitive obedience focus on the training and ring skills you need to be a winner with your dog in the ring-and that's great. However if you find competing stressful or think you and your dog will not "succeed" against the "best" the key is defining success in a way that will make the sport enjoyable for you. Author Diana Kerew-Shaw takes on the subject of "how to find your fun" in It's a Dog Not a Toaster, showing you how you can learn to enjoy the sport, even if your dog never comes close to a qualifying score.

You will learn about:

o How to set goals that are meaningful and will work for you and your dog.

o What it's like to enter the "Land of Obedience" and become a member of the "Cult" which inhabits it. Hint: it's fun! o What every newcomer to the sport needs to know to get started including information about Fun Matches, Show n Go's, and obedience clubs. How changes in the obedience world are making the sport accessible to more competitors including the development of Rally Obedience and the opportunities which now exist for mixed breeds.

Over 300 photos and diagrams demonstrate how to safely and effectively stretch each major muscle group. Teaches correct hand placement for joint stabilization and how to maintain good form. Stretching routines are presented for both large and small dogs, older dogs, and those that are involved in a variety of dog sports.

INTERMEDIATE AGILITY WORKBOOK

INTERMEDIATE AGILITY WORKBOOK

Author - Houston et al - Publisher - Clean Run / Crosskeys

The Intermediate Agility Workbook, contains progressive exercises and instructional information for an eight-week agility class designed for dogs and handlers that have previously completed a beginning agility class. The object of the intermediate program is to instill confidence and a sense of fun in performing agility obstacles in short sequences.

The programme places a fundamental emphasis on the handler keeping the dog's attention at all times. Handlers are challenged to perform what are generally considered advanced handling maneuvers. But, in reality, these maneuvers are more easily learned early in a handler's training and will prove more important in the long run than focusing only on running longer and longer sequences.
