DOG LISTENER

Author - Fennell - Publisher - Harper Collins

The behavioural problems covered in The Dog Listener will sound all too familiar to anyone who shares their life with a canine companion.

During the 25 years that Jan Fennell has been working with dogs, she's been increasingly aware of the ways in which communication between man's best friend and ourselves has broken down. Inspired by Monty Roberts, Fennell embraces similar ideas to those found in The Man Who Listens to Horses.

Rather than trying to fit human psychology to animals, the starting point is observing how animals communicate, how they structure their groups in the wild and what they think their role is.

DOMINANCE IN DOGS FACT OR FICTION?

DOMINANCE IN DOGS FACT OR FICTION?

Author - Barry Eaton - Publisher - Dogwise

You may have read books or seen TV shows that tell you that your dog will seek to dominate you, your family members and other pets unless you become the “alpha” and put him in his place. The theory is that since dogs evolved from wolves and wolves (supposedly) form packs with strict pecking orders and battle each other to become the pack leader, your dog will do the same within your household.

In this new edition, author Barry Eaton separates out the facts from the fiction regarding dominance in pet dogs, presenting the reader with the results of recent research into the behaviour of wolves and the impacts of selective breeding on the behaviour of dogs. The results may surprise you and will surely inform you.

THE GENIUS OF DOGS: DISCOVERING THE UNIQUE INTELLEGENCE OF MAN'S BEST FRIEND

THE GENIUS OF DOGS: DISCOVERING THE UNIQUE INTELLEGENCE OF MAN'S BEST FRIEND

Author - Brian Hare & Vanessa Woods - Publisher - Oneworld

The journey began with a gut reaction. When award-winning scientist Dr Brian Hare watched a chimpanzee fail to read a simple human hand gesture in an intelligence test, he blurted out, ‘My dog can do that!’

The psychologist running the test challenged him to prove it, sending Hare on an odyssey to unlock the cognitive and evolutionary mysteries of our four-legged friends.

Hare's research over the past two decades has yielded startling discoveries about how dogs think. He has pioneered studies that have proven that dogs exhibit a brand of genius for getting along with people that is unique in the animal kingdom, and that when dogs domesticated themselves around 40,000 years ago they became far more like human infants than their wolf ancestors. These findings are transforming how we live and work with our canine friends, and how we understand them.

Is your dog purposefully disobeying you? Probably, and often behind your back. Should you act like top dog to maintain control? No, you're better off displaying your friendliness - not just to your dog but to everyone around you. Which breed is cleverest? As it happens, breed doesn't matter much, though other factors do.

These are just some of the extraordinary insights to be found in The Genius of Dogs the seminal book on how dogs evolved their unique intelligence alongside human companions, and how you can use this groundbreaking science to build a better relationship with your own dog.

IF DOGS COULD TALK

IF DOGS COULD TALK

Author - Vilmos Csanyi - Publisher - Sutton

Every dog owner knows that there's something special about the degree of mutual understanding that exists between humans and dogs. Now, Vilmos Csanyi traces the roots of this unique relationship back to the unusual circumstances in which the two species co-evolved over many millennia.

The author argues that the alliance of dogs and humans arose from behavioural traits present in the original wolves from which all modern dogs are descended. Wolves, like humans, are highly intelligent social predators, with well-developed cooperative problem-solving and communications skills. These basic intellectual skills were refined and enhanced over tens of thousands of years forming the unique bond between dogs and their owners that exists today.

Current research on conditioning and learning reflects three themes: a methodological behavioral theme that focuses on how certain experiences lead to changes in behavior, a cognitive theme that focuses on how experiences are represented in memory, and an evolutionary/adaptive behavior theme that focuses on the various kinds of learning as adaptive specializations that evolved through the mechanism of natural selection.

These themes are interwoven to present an integrated and coherent account of our current state of knowledge in the area. The evolutionary/adaptive behavior theme is the central theme within which the cognitive and behavioral themes are developed here.

THE DOG'S MIND

THE DOG'S MIND

Author - Bruce Fogle - Publisher - Michael Joseph

"Quite simply, this is an excellent book. It is well-written, with snatches of dry humour. It should be mandatory reading for anybody who keeps a dog or has intentions of so doing." - R.W.F. Poole, Daily Telegraph

How do dogs perceive the world about them? How do they see, hear, learn, relate to their owners? How large are their brains, what is their emotional make up? Why do they suffer from stress and how can it be coped with?

Over the last ten years a substantial body of knowledge has been built up about the psychology of dog behaviour. Combining twenty years of practical experience as a veterinary clinician with a personal knowledge and understanding of the latest international research, Dr Bruce Fogle has written the most inclusive and relevant book on how the canine mind works.

THE WOLF WITHIN

THE WOLF WITHIN

Author - Shaun Ellis - Publisher - Harper

Shaun Ellis grew up in the Norfolk countryside with a passion for and understanding with animals from an early age. His early fascination with wolves, and determination to understand them, led to him spending years in the US with the Naz Paz Indian tribe, watching wolves, learning to understand their roles and behaviour in the pack and how to communicate with them. He even lived as part of a wild pack for two years, without any human contact.

Bringing his knowledge back to the UK, he astonished wildlife experts with his knowledge and insight. He now lives, eats and sleeps with his two wolf packs at Combe Martin Wildlife Park. This is the story of Shaun’s determination to understand these extraordinary animals and how what he has learned can help others to understand their own domestic dogs.

THROUGH A DOG'S EYES - UNDERSTANDING OUR DOGS BY UNDERSTANDING THE WAY THEY SEE THE WORLD

Author - Jennifer Arnold - Publisher - Souvenir Press

Jennifer Arnold has trained service dogs for people with physical disabilities and special needs for over twenty years. In that time she has developed a unique understanding of dogs abilities and their as yet untapped potential. By understanding the capabilities, intelligence and extrasensory skills of dogs she has taught dogs to make choices, instead of following commands, and her results have been extraordinary.

Through A Dog s Eyes reveals the science behind Jennifer Arnold s remarkable training methods. Based on the belief that dogs are naturally trusting beings attuned to their owners needs who aim to please, Jennifer Arnold calls for an end to traditional dog-training strategies based on the theory of alpha dominance that is being increasingly challenged by modern science.

Jennifer Arnold s choice-based, positive-reinforcement-only methods are based on kindness and respect, founded on scientific discoveries from the work of Charles Darwin, Edward O. Wilson, Rupert Sheldrake and many others. Written with the practical experience of having founded a service-dog school Jennifer Arnold is an inspirational guide for any dog-owner and she draws from her own life, and the lives of the dogs who were her greatest teachers, in emotional, compelling and uplifting stories that are testimony to the training methods she has developed. A heartwarming, captivating read that will forever change the way you see your dog by showing you the way that your dog sees the world.

UNDERSTANDING THE SILENT COMMUNICATION OF DOGS

UNDERSTANDING THE SILENT COMMUNICATION OF DOGS

Author - Rosie L owry - Publisher - Lowry Industries

Why do I feel this book is so important? At its core it contains valuable information for each one of us, including the dog, and even increases our understanding of other species. Rosie guides the reader towards knowledge that will help unlock the door to better observation and understanding of the REAL canine world, rather than one which tends to come from interpretation as opposed to observation. Rosie has studied widely, reading literature, attending courses and learning from humans, and more importantly, learning from the animals themselves. By putting theories into practice and testing her beliefs, she has gained a deep appreciation of which are of value and which can be discarded. Her down-to-earth approach is an asset that she brings to every aspect of her daily life. She gives the reader ideas of how to make changes, how to work and how to help dogs along with reasons behind those suggestions. The benefits of her approach are verified by outright success --Sheila Harper B.Ed BA- Principal International Dog Behaviour and Training School.
