Yes, humans and canines are different species, but current research provides fascinating, irrefutable evidence that what we share with our dogs is greater than how we vary. As behaviorist and zoologist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells us in this remarkable new book about emotions in dogs and in people, more and more scientists accept the premise that dogs have rich emotional lives, exhibiting a wide range of feelings including fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and love. In For the Love of a Dog, McConnell suggests that one of the reasons we love dogs so much is that they express emotions in ways similar to humans. After all, who can communicate joy better than a puppy? But not all emotional expressions are obvious, and McConnell teaches both beginning dog owners and experienced dog lovers how to read the more subtle expressions hidden behind fuzzy faces and floppy ears. For those of us who deeply cherish our dogs but are sometimes baffled by their behavior, For the Love of a Dog will come as a revelation–a treasure trove of useful facts, informed speculation, and intriguing accounts of man’s best friend at his worst and at his very best. Readers will discover how fear, anger, and happiness underlie the lives of both people and dogs and, most important, how understanding emotion in both species can improve the relationship between them. Thus McConnell introduces us to the possibility of a richer, more rewarding relationship with our dogs. While we may never be absolutely certain what our dogs are feeling, with the help of this riveting book we can understand more than we ever thought possible. Those who consider their dogs part of the family will find For the Love of a Dog engaging, enlightening, and utterly engrossing. From the Hardcover edition.

Treats, Play, Love is the collected wisdom of Patricia G. Burnham, the author of the highly successful Playtraining Your Dog, which has been in print for more than twenty-five years. Now, after fifty years in the business, she brings to this new book a focus on food training your dog with small treats, while still incorporating fun and games into teaching basic and advanced obedience. Burnham uses no compulsive training or punishment for incorrect or unwanted behaviors (such as barking, biting, urinating inside, or begging), but rather offers rewards for correct behavior, thus reinforcing it. Topics covered include: · Basic obedience training for puppies (exercises for sit, down, heel, and stay) · House manners for older puppies and adult dogs (no whining or barking) · Recipes for tasty dog treats that your four-legged friend will do anything for · Understanding your dog's personality · Preventing dog bites · Dealing with shy or fearful dogs · Advice and exercises for training and showing a dog in obedience trials in novice class, open class, and utility class · Reflections on the end of your dog's life There are more than 100 photos and line drawings throughout the book to illustrate movements and exercises, and for owners who want to show their dogs, there are detailed descriptions of what they can expect once they enter the ring. Although Burnham works almost exclusively with greyhounds (which are notoriously difficult to train), her wisdom and expertise apply to all breeds, and her warmth, sound advice, and personal tone make Treats, Play, Love a joy to use.

Inspired by Garden & Gun magazine’s popular “Good Dog” column, a rich collection of true stories celebrating the unique relationship between humans and their canine companions, penned by some of today’s top writers, including Jon Meacham, Roy Blount, Jr, Dominique Browning, and P.J. O’Rourke. When Garden & Gun magazine debuted a column aptly named “Good Dog,” it quickly became one of the publication’s most popular features in print.

Good Dog offers memorable, beautifully written stories of dog ownership, companionship, friendship, and kinship. From the troublemakers who can’t be fenced in to the lifelong companions who won’t leave our sides, this poignant anthology showcases man’s best friend through all of his most endearing—and sometimes maddening—attributes. By turns inspirational and humorous (just like the dogs we love), Good Dog is a must-have collection for dog lovers everywhere.

The sound of toenails clicking across the kitchen floor, the thump of a tail responding to your voice in the dark, the jingling of tags on a collar--all are sounds welcomed by every dog lover. Just as we have grown fond of the antics and traits of our beloved pets, our dogs have grown accustomed to the sound of our keys unlocking the door, our hands reaching into a jar for a doggie treat, and our sharing a spot on the couch. This mutual, unconditional affection between dog and human has created an unbreakable bond that transcends age, gender, and race. For the Love of Dog: 100 Reasons Why Man Is Dog's Best Friend celebrates the incomparable love that humans have for these lovable, furry friends. Ever since becoming a dog owner at the age of twelve, Tracy Ford's love for dogs has grown. His dog taught him about life but also about responsibility, making good decisions, and coping with death. The fluffy ball of fur taught him that almost always it is humans who have accidents, not their pets. The dynamic between pet and owner is not necessarily about what people receive from their pets or they receive from us, but what both give to each other. Filled with photographs depicting the bond between dogs and their owners, For the Love of Dog outlines why we can't get enough of muddy feet, dripping mustaches, barking at all times of the night and day, scaring the pizza man, and always having our backs protected. Why do we do it? For the love of dog, of course!

How well do you know your dog? Did you know that dogs have dreams and fears? That they do see colour, that they smell electric storms, and feel scent as an emotion? Jeffrey Masson takes us into the world of the dog, a world created by a sense of smell one hundred million times more acute than ours, and reintroduces us to man's best friend - loyal, honest, straightforward, spontaneous and almost unbelievably forgiving. Drawing on observations of his own three dogs, as well as true stories of dogs' friendship, heroism and loyalty, Masson makes us laugh, cry and think again about our canine companions, who, unlike humans, will never lie about love.

For anyone who has worried that being beguiled by puppy love might lead only to a short-lived dalliance, Stanley Coren provides the ultimate matchmaking service. Combining his expertise in human psychology and animal behaviour with the research of other animal experts, Coren classifies dogs according to such personality traits as friendliness, protectiveness, and steadiness. To discover which dogs will suit them best, readers take simple personality tests that reveal what they are looking for in a relationship. Extroverted men, for example, may be surprised to find that poodles make the ideal companions; shy women are likely to prefer the company of a bulldog; and men lacking trust might consider an independent Shar-Pei. Stories about people and their four-legged best friends - and a gallery of photographs - capture the special dynamics between couples ranging from Freud and his Chow-Chow to Picasso and his Afghan hound.

For thousands of years, the dog has been at the centre of our affections. Over the centuries - from the wolves who first tentatively ventured close to the camp fire to the devoted little bundles of fluff that snuggle at our feet today - dogs have been man's oldest friends. Inspired by the love for - and from - her own dog, Rachael Hale has collected a stunning array of images of our canine companions. She photographed a myriad of hound shapes and sizes, heights and girths, shaggy coats and wiry curls - and, most importantly, the unique characters hidden beneath them. The secret to capturing a dog's soul is to focus on their eyes - whether they are wide and shining, or heavy-lidded, in the throes of slumber. Within this book you will see the soul of your own 'best buddy' staring back at you. It could be in the drowsy gaze of Spence the languid Labrador Retriever, or in the perky grin of Sox the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. You may catch a glimpse of it under the Rastafarian dreadlocks of the Puli or in the flashing dark eyes of Sasha the smiling Samoyed. The portraits also show another side of dogs who have been given unjust reputations. Just take a look at the tenderness of Loki, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross, with a sleeping kitten on his head.101 Salivationsis a charming tribute to the animals who have stood by us for centuries and continue to be our best friends, and will capture the hearts of dog-lovers everywhere.
