An owner's guide to giving a puppy a successful start to life. Puppy Bible is uniquely designed to guide new puppy owners on a week-by-week basis from the all-important planning and decision stages, up to those exciting first days at home, through the first six months of a puppy's life and beyond. The book is divided into two parts.

The information in part one is cross-referenced to part two of the book, a comprehensive encyclopedia covering all areas of puppy care with detailed expert advice on a wide number of topics, such as: - House training - General care and grooming - Health - Breed-specific considerations - Behavior - Socialization - Obedience training - Diet - Socialization and troubleshooting - Canine first aid. When it comes to puppies, it's important to do it right from the very first day. What happens in the first sixteen weeks of its life sets the tone for the rest of the dog's life. While Puppy Bible is designed primarily for those first 16 weeks, it will be useful at any stage of the dog's life: training needs occasional reinforcement, general care and grooming are always important, and a source of first aid care is essential.

Being a Dog
The World from Your Dog's Point of View
Paperback ISBN: 1770858210
Dogs and humans have lived together for more than 30,000 years, becoming closer and more interdependent over time. Today, there are dogs in almost 50 percent of American households. This book is not about anthropomorphizing dogs. They are not human. But science is confirming what dog people have always known. Uniquely written from a dog's perspective, Being a Dog is the most authoritative and current book about dog behavior and cognition. It combines the latest scientific research with enlightening illustrations to give a unique insight into a dog's world. What does it feel like to be a dog? How does a dog view other dogs, other animals, humans? How does a dog see itself? What makes a dog happy or excited, scared or angry? Some of the exciting discoveries in the book are: - dogs make use of the "lovers' hormone," Oxytocin - dogs love us and see us as their family - dogs rely on humans for affection, protection and everything else - dogs are the only non-primate animal to look people in the eyes; in fact, they seek out eye contact - dogs are hopelessly devoted to humans, prioritizing the scent of humans over anything else - dogs and humans process emotionally laden vocal sounds similarly - dogs are physically wired to pick up on humans' subtle mood changes - dogs do not have a sense of self-awareness - dogs do not see the world in black-and-white but actually most have red-green color blindness - dogs are very nearsighted compared to humans. Dog owners are always ready to read about their canine companions. They are so passionate about their pets that they are compelled to believe they know what their dog thinks or feels. Are they right? Being a Dog: The World From Your Dog's Point of View has the answer.
The Dog Behavior Answer Book
Practical Insights & Proven Solutions for Your Canine Questions
Paperback ISBN: 1580176445
It happens all the time. Just when Max’s owner thinks she has him figured out, he exhibits a bewildering fear of the neighbor’s skateboard. Or, despite endless corrections, Bailey still refuses to understand that she doesn’t belong on the leather armchair. Then there are the dogs that almost always behave appropriately and predictably but can still display a few surprise reactions in situations that disturb their routines. Houseguests might be ruining Buster’s sense of order — taking over his favorite room and distracting his humans from important things like fetch and dinner. And that dog park near Sadie’s new house is terrific, but she might be having a tough time understanding the rules of etiquette. To all these situations and a hundred more, dog expert Arden Moore provides answers that clearly explain canine actions and reactions, and then helps readers with suggestions for modifying unacceptable behavior. For every canine misdeed, there is a human counter-response to fix the problem. Read about both sides of the story in these friendly questions and answers, taken from real-life situations with real dogs. There is hardly a behavior that will not have dog lovers nodding their heads in recognition. The Dog Behavior Answer Book will solve the mysteries of canine shoe theft, food guarding, and grass eating for puzzled humans everywhere.
