BEHAVIOUR ADJUSTMENT TRAINING

BEHAVIOUR ADJUSTMENT TRAINING

Author - Grisha Stewart, M.A. CPDT-KA - Publisher - Dogwise

Think “functional” to solve your dog’s reactivity issues.

Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT) was developed by author Grisha Stewart to rehabilitate and prevent dog reactivity. BAT looks at the function of growling, lunging, or fleeing and helps dogs learn socially acceptable behaviors that serve that same function. In a nutshell, BAT builds confidence by giving dogs a chance to learn to control their environment through peaceful means.

That makes BAT very empowering to your dog or puppy, in a good way. It’s also empowering for you, as you learn how to understand your dog and help him learn to safely get along with people, dogs, and other triggers.

CHASE! MANAGING YOUR DOG'S PREDATORY INSTINCTS

CHASE! MANAGING YOUR DOG'S PREDATORY INSTINCTS

Author - Clarissa Von Reinhardt - Publisher - Dogwise

Almost every dog has some degree of prey drive and you may experience it when your otherwise well mannered dog suddenly takes off chasing after a rabbit, squirrel, or a jogger. The old approach to solving this problem involved the use of corrective devices like choke chains and electronic fences.

A better approach includes training and management techniques that reward your dog for choosing to focus on and stay near you, the owner.

Clarissa von Reinhardt has been working on the issue of how to deal with unwanted predatory behaviour for many years. In this fascinating and inspiring book, she takes the readers step by step through her training methods, inviting them to learn more about a dog’s complex spectrum of behaviour, and ultimately to maintain as much control as possible over the urge to chase prey.

For further information on this subject we recommend the DVD "PREDATION IN FAMILY DOGS" by Jean Donaldson - also available from our webshop - £21.49 including carriage.

DOG INSIGHT

DOG INSIGHT

Author - Pamela Reid - Publisher - Dogwise

Trainers and animal behaviorists around the globe consider Pam Reid’s Excel-erated Learning one of the most important and influential books ever written in the field of dog behavior. Although that’s a hard act to follow, Dog InSight, Pam’s second book, does not disappoint. In over forty fascinating essays, Pam explores a wide range of topics, including learning theory, training techniques and behavior problems.

You will learn:

• Why early enrichment and socialization are crucial when raising a puppy.

• Why you should take puppy “temperament tests” with a grain of salt.

• Why dogs are incredibly adept at reading body language and solving certain kinds of complex problems—but “spectacularly dense” when facing other tasks.

• Why misunderstanding dominance theory often leads to failure when people try to change problem behaviors in dogs.

Pam’s insights are both educational and thought-provoking. Not only does she deliver scientifically sound information; she also challenges the reader to re-examine several widely held—but not necessarily accurate—beliefs about dogs. If you’re at all interested in canine behavior, you won’t want to miss out on this well-presented wealth of knowledge.

CLEVER DOG -

CLEVER DOG -

Publisher - Hubble & Hattie

The dog is undeniably the most successful domestic animal of all time. He shares his life with ours, has integrated into our society, won the hearts and minds of millions of us and we in turn, have elevated him to positions of authority in the human world - as assistance dogs, protection dogs, detection dogs, companion dogs and they all enhance our lives immeasurably.

In this study we can examine a whole raft of canine skills and talents, and try to piece together how and why the dog has enjoyed such immense success as a domesticated animal. We will look at the dog as a problem solver, conflict resolver, and health asset, decision maker and hero and as loyal and trusted companion. A wonderful exploration of man's relationship with his best friend.

Author - Young - Publisher - Crosskeys

This new edition of Nerve Cells and Animal Behaviour has been updated and expanded by Peter Simmons and David Young in order to take into account more recent advances while still maintaining the accessibility of the book to university students.

Only examples where it has been possible to establish a clear link between the activity of particular nerve cells and a pattern of behaviour have been used. This book is essential reading for students of zoology, psychology and physiology and serves as a clear introduction to neuroethology.
