REAL DOG YOGA

REAL DOG YOGA


In Real Dog Yoga, Jo-Rosie Haffenden, accredited trainer and behaviourist, and expert witness for the courts in dangerous dog cases, introduces us to the fascinating and wonderful new concept of Dog Yoga.


Inspired by her own badly abused rescue dog, Archie, Haffenden has developed a technique that calms and relaxes, improves focus and impulse control and promotes body consciousness. Using a mixtures of postures, movements and expressions, Haffenden shows us how to teach our dogs to be calm, relaxed individuals and prevent the escalation of behaviours borne from frustration.


This is an inspired and thought provoking new approach to training, and one that will hugely enrich the lives of both pet and so called ‘problem’ dogs, strengthening the all important bond between dog and owner.

MY DOG IS BLIND BUT LIVES LIFE TO THE FULL

Publisher - Hubble & Hattie

A review from a veterinary surgeon.

"My dog is blind - but lives life to the full" deals comprehensively with the subject and is written in a non-technical style that will make it accessible to dog owners. It is an optimistic "can-do" book and provides plenty of case studies to illustrate how individual dogs (and their owners) have coped with their disability. This book provides a useful starting point that can help owners understand their dog’s disability and learn to cope with it.

As a support book it is worth recommending to owners as part of a support package that aims to empower owners and allow them to develop a sensitivity to, and understanding of, what is, at first, a very distressing condition. Owners will particularly appreciate reading the case studies and seeing how others have coped well with similar problems. It is this potential to help owners cope with their dog’s blindness that allow me to recommend this book.

A deaf dog isn't significantly disabled - he still has his fine nose and his eyes, which are far more important faculties to a dog.

This invaluable book will sympathetically help owners of deaf and hard-of-hearing dogs not just to accept their loyal companions for what they are, but also explain how, with love and careful thought, they and their dog can get the maximum out of life, having fun and establishing an even closer bond as they help each other find new or adapted ways to live together.

WHAT VETS DON'T TELL YOU ABOUT VACCINES

WHAT VETS DON'T TELL YOU ABOUT VACCINES

Author - O'Driscoll - Publisher - Corpus

Are vaccinations killing our pets? When this book was first published in 1997, it started a grass-roots movement of dog lovers that has resulted in the overhaul of vaccination protocols throughout the US and England.

Catherine O’Driscoll, a layperson in the field of veterinary care, prompted by the early death of two beloved dogs, went to work to find out what happened to her companions. Driven as only a bereaved pet owner can be to find the cause, and fearless as only an outsider can be, she worked tirelessly to bring the subject of over-vaccination to the public’s awareness.

Now back in print, What Vets Don’t Tell You lets you read about the author’s startling research and conclusions that have transformed the way we vaccinate our dogs.
