<div>In the 1980s, the world of riding, training, and competing with horses took a major turn with the spread of <I>natural horsemanship</I>, which at its most basic foundation rejects the use of abusive techniques and relies on methods derived from understanding the dynamics of free-roaming horse herds. Since then, equestrians across disciplines have incorporated elements of natural horsemanship into their work. But despite what was certainly an advancement in human-equine interaction that has improved the lives of many horses, Italian animal behaviorists Francesco de Giorgio and José de Giorgio-Schoorl dare to now ask, <I>What if much of what we think we know about horses is, in fact, wrong? What if the premise of herd hierarchy is a myth? What if “conditioning” the horse’s behavior in the ways we’ve grown accustomed is undercutting his potential for development? What if there is another—better—level of partnership to which we can aspire?</I> Their provocative book takes us into a dimension where we shed our assumptions of leadership, dominance, and control, convincingly showing a way forward that acknowledges that a horse, when allowed, is driven by his own inner motivation to explore and understand the world around him, including his relationship with humans.</div>

<p><strong><u>Choosing the perfect dog can be confusing, especially for first-time owners...</u></strong></p><p>It's easy to fall in love with a breed and rush into buying a gorgeous Border Collie or an intimidating Doberman Pinscher, but this is a mistake! Buying a dog should be a long, careful process – a new dog is, after all, a new family member and <em>Every dog deserves more than a loving home - they deserve the right loving home!</em></p><p>There are a number of things that potential dog owners need to consider before making the leap. Does the dog breed you've fallen in love with fit in with your lifestyle? If you work eight hours a day, can the dog be left on its own in your home, or will it become stressed and destructive? If you have other pets, will the dog get along with them? Is the dog child-friendly, or will it quickly lose patience?</p><p>It works both ways; a new dog must fit in with their owner's lifestyle, but new owners also need to have the skills and patience necessary to provide adequate care for their new canine companion. Prospective dog owners should ask themselves, <em>Do I have the time to give this breed all the exercise it needs? Do I have the energy to keep up with them? Am I willing to buy it a doggie jacket when the weather gets chilly? Do I want a mellow lap dog or an excitable adventuring buddy?</em></p><p>This book will analyze fifty unique dog breeds in terms of their protection ability, trainability, playfulness, exercise needs and adaptability. Furthermore, It will analyse 50 typical dog behaviours and explain what they mean and how to address them (if they happen to be bad habits). If you're a prospective dog owner or even just an enthusiast, you need this book!</p><p><strong><u>How will this book help me?</u></strong></p><p>Whether you own a pet dog or you're planning to buy or adopt one, this book will assist you immensely. In this book, with over <strong>100 High Resolution Pictures</strong>, you will:</p><ul><li>Learn about each dog breed's history and origin</li><li>Learn about each dog breed's size category - small dog breeds, Medium dog breeds and Large dog breeds </li><li>Learn about each dog breed's family: companion dogs, working dogs, herding dogs etc.</li><li>Learn about each dog breed's strengths and weaknesses and how well they responds to different kinds of dog training</li><li>Learn about the dog breed that can live with kids, serve as a service dog, serve as a guard dog etc</li><li>Learn about the dog breeds that can live in temperate/tropical regions and those that require ample living space</li><li>Learn about each dog breed's pedigree and <em>relative</em> ability across 5 areas namely: Ease of Training, Playfulness, Adaptability, Exercise Needs and Protection Ability</li><li>Learn about 50 typical dog behaviours, what they mean and ways to address them.</li></ul><p>So before you make the decision to bring home a new best friend, get a copy of this book. It will help you learn more about dogs in general and, more importantly, help you select that perfect dog breed that complements your lifestyle. </p><p><strong>This 2-in-1 Book Bundle consist of two best selling books by Helena Troy</strong></p><ul><li><strong>Dog Training - 50 Dog Behaviours Explained</strong></li><li><strong>Dog Breeds - A Concise Analysis of 50 Dog Breeds</strong></li></ul><p><strong>***Buy the paperback version of this book from Amazon and get this Kindle version for FREE***</strong></p>

Customer Reviews
Veterinary medicine has undergone sweeping changes in the last few decades. Women now account for 55 percent of the active veterinarians in the field, and nearly 80 percent of veterinary students are women. However, average salaries have dropped as this shift has occurred, and even with women in the vast majority, only 25 percent of leadership roles are held by women. These trends point to gender-based inequality that veterinary medicine, a profession that tilts so heavily toward women, is struggling to address. How will the profession respond? What will this mean for our students and schools? What will it mean for our pets entrusted to veterinarian care? Who has succeeded in these situations? Who is taking action to lead change? What can we learn from them to lead the pack in our lives? Leaders of the Pack, by Julie Kumble and Dr. Donald Smith, explores key themes in leadership and highlights women in veterinary medicine whose stories embody those themes. In it, Kumble and Smith cull over three years of interviews to profile a wide variety of women as they share triumphs and challenges, lucky as well as tough breaks, and the sound advice and words that inspired them to take their careers in unanticipated directions. By sharing unique stories that illuminate different paths to leadership and reflecting on best practices through commentary and research, Leaders of the Pack will allow more female leaders to create wider pathways to the top of their profession.

In this powerful, soul-searching memoir, beautifully written in the vein of <i>A Pack of Two</i> and <i>Wild</i>, animal behaviorist Dr. Patricia McConnell recounts for the first time the compelling story of her dark past, memories of which are triggered by a troubled dog named Will.<BR><BR>World-renowned as a source of science and soul, Patricia McConnell combines brilliant insights into canine behavior—gained from her work with aggressive and fearful dogs—with heartwarming stories of her own dogs and their life on the farm. Now, she reveals that it wasn’t just the dogs who had serious problems. For decades Dr. McConnell secretly grappled with her own guilt and fear, which were rooted in the harrowing traumas of her youth.<BR> <BR> Patricia is forced to face her past by her love for a young Border Collie named Will, whose frequent, unpredictable outbreaks of fear and fury shake Patricia to her core. In order to save Will from this dangerous behavior, she must find her own will to heal, and along the way learn that will power by itself is not enough.<BR> <BR> Interweaving enlightening stories of her clients’ dogs with tales of her deepening bond with Will, Patricia recounts her fight to reclaim her life. Hopeful and inspiring, the redemptive message of her journey is that, while trauma changes our brains and the past casts a long shadow, healing, for both people and dogs, is possible through hard work, compassion, and mutual devotion.
