Beyond Basic Dog Training has, since its initial publication, achieved well-deserved recognition as an innovative guide to obedience instruction that is truly unique among books on the subject. Beyond Basic Dog Training makes a vital difference for those who read and use it and for dogs taught by it. This book shows how dogs learn, what they do with what they learn, and how a stimulated canine mind, along with an untrampled canine ego, makes for a dog that is a constant joy to live and work with. The new edition presents the most current knowledge on canine learning patterns, and provides updated American Kennel Club obedience trial regulations, greatly expanded since the first edition appeared. The instruction in Beyond Basic Dog Training is behind Gaines "Superdogs," numerous obedience trial champions, and a host of canine successes. This is the book of choice for informed obedience fans. It can do for you and your dog what it has done for them and theirs. A Howell Dog Book of Distinction

The best positive obedience training program for your pets or working dog. Use proven techniques to: - Train your puppy with basic exercises to prepare for future obedience training. - Correct common problem behaviors, such as barking, bolting, and chewing. - Progress from basic to advanced exercises to ensure your dog is always learning. Obedience is the foundation of any reliable, well-trained dog. Without obedience, working dogs are ineffective in operations and pet dogs can be annoying and possibly a danger to themselves or others. In K9 Obedience Training, certified animal behavior consultant and veteran search and rescue (SAR) dog handler and trainer Susan Bulanda shares the secrets of building an effective obedience training program. SAR dogs need “thinking” obedience: they sometimes need to exercise intelligent disobedience in the field. You can use the same training program for any working or pet dog. For trainers who demand the best obedience training for future working dogs, Susan’s techniques lay the groundwork for success. And pet owners who want to help their dog be easy to be around will find lots of training tips and exercises too, along with straightforward advice on proper handling, grooming, and teaching simple tricks.

Imagine being able to ask your poodle, “Who’s at the door?” and having her respond, “It’s Katy.” Or asking your golden retriever, “Do you want a treat?” and him responding, “No, water.” Or asking your Border collie, “Which toy do you want?” and getting the response, “Stick.” If you’ve ever wondered what dogs would tell us if they could, now you can find out. The K9Sign system teaches dogs to communicate to us–making it a first in any dog training book category. Dogs Can Sign, Too is the first book dedicated exclusively to the K9Sign system for teaching dogs to communicate to their human companions using a vocabulary of gestures. This extraordinary education tool, developed by the creator of AnimalSign Language exclusively for the canine community, teaches people and their pets a unique mode of communication that employs an extensive lexicon of specific signs. Sample signs range from general concepts, such as “Food” or “Play” to identifying special treats, such as “Liver” or “Cheese” and specifying a favorite toy, such as “Ball” or “Frisbee.” Signs also include useful questions such as “Who’s that?” or “What type?” to naming a particular friend or family member, or even indicating a stranger. Learning and practicing K9Sign is a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience for both you and your dog that is sure to deepen the human-canine bond while expanding our ideas about interspecies communication.

The revised and expanded second edition of the best-selling The Original Dog Bible remains the most comprehensive dog lover’s resource on the market: 830 pages and over 500 color photographs cover every topic under the canine sun! The book is divided into eight parts, each fully illustrated and designed for easy reference, plus helpful, entertaining sidebars covering hundreds of related topics. Section I: “The Dog in Our World” starts with the domestication of dog and the development of breeds, explores the dog’s place in world religion, folklore, and popular culture, and analyzes how the dog fits into our society in terms of rescue, animal welfare, legal matters, and ethical and social issues. Section II: “A New Dog” is a new owner’s primer to deciding upon the right dog, whether purebred or mixed breed, the requirements of keeping and caring for a dog, and various considerations before choosing a dog (children, size, energy, etc.). Individual chapters on finding a dog (from breeders, shelters, and rescue programs), preparing for the homecoming (puppy-proofing, supplies, safety), and bringing the dog home. Section III: “Life with a Dog” discusses pet-care partners (from doggy day care to boarding kennels to pet sitters), emergencies, lost-dog protocol, traveling with a dog, senior years, and activities with a dog. The expansive activities chapter covers agility, flyball, sledding, weigh pulling, canine freestyle, lure coursing, herding, field trials, dock diving, Schutzhund, tracking, showing, therapy, obedience trials, and more. Section IV: “Breeds” is the largest section in the book, providing an alphabetical catalog of over 250 purebred dogs, from Affenpinscher to Yorkshire Terrier, including all of the most popular breeds in the world as well as many little known breed. Each breed is represented by a full-color photograph and an article detailing alternative names, country of origin, kennel club group, history of breed’s development, physical description, height/weight, temperament, activity level, health concerns—all information necessary for owners to determine which breed would make the best companion for their life style and family. Section V: “Health” extends over 100 pages and covers establishing a veterinary regimen for a dog; infectious diseases and vaccinations; canine anatomy and bodily systems; reproduction and breeding; chronic disease and conditions; and diagnostic tests and techniques. Section VI: “Daily Care” provides owners with fundamental information about grooming dogs, including breed-specific needs, history of grooming, and home grooming requirements. A chapter titled “The Complete Guide to Feeding Your Dog” addresses essential canine nutrition, including selection of the right food, safety, special needs, supplemental, obesity, and owner precautions. Section VII: “Training and Behavior” could be a complete book unto itself, discussing canine communication, the importance of socialization, puppy training, house-training, specific kinds of training methods, equipment, adult-dog methods, and trick training. A chapter on solving behavioral problems covers difficulties owners might encounter with their pets, from barking and separation anxiety to aggression, eating, housetraining, and health-related problems. Section VIII: “Dogs and Work” includes a chapter about dogs who work and a chapter about people who work with dogs. The text discusses the many jobs dogs do in our society, from ancient roles like herding, guarding, and military work to more contemporary jobs like search and rescue, film acting, and detection work. The careers chapter catalogs jobs caring for dogs (veterinary-related, groomers, day-care), protection and advocacy jobs (humane societies, animal control), and training and handling jobs (obedience, behaviorist, working dog handlers). The book concludes with an extensive glossary, a 50-page resource section of books, websites, and magazines, and a complete index.
