Have you ever wondered what your dog is thinking? Dog trainer, healer, and counselor, Jocelyn Kessler, asserts that while your dog does not speak English, he or she is communicating with you all of the time. In The Secret Language of Dogs, Kesler explains the importance of learning how to listen to your pet by learning to read the behavioral and energetic traits of your dog. Based on her years of experience with dogs and their owners in Southern California, Kessler explains how energy flows between pets and their owners and what the implications of that energy flow are for both parties. Her stories show how we often inflict our own emotional issues onto our pets, and how negative energy can result in both behavior and physical difficulties. In addition to the stories, she provides concrete tips on how to connect with your pet: Where to ConnectVisualizationDeclarationsAcknowledgementsGiving thanks

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.

Dogs express themselves in a "secret language" that relies on expressions, body postures, barks and growls. The Secret Language of Dogs shows you how to interpret what your canine is telling you through their behaviour, and it explains how they, in turn, interpret our body language and attempts to interact with them. Known as "man’s best friend" for a reason, dogs are scientifically proven to enhance our quality of life. The Secret Language of Dogs helps return the favour by providing insights into why dogs act as they do. It also contains practical advice for training, addressing common health and behavioural problems and strengthening the bond with your canine friend. The book contains useful and important Canadian resources regarding breed information, adoption and rescue, and training. The Secret Language of Dogstakes the mysteries out of dog body language, giving you the insight to gain a better understanding of your much-loved pet.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Through a Dog’s Eyes—the inspiration for the PBS documentary—a paradigm-shifting approach to living with and loving our dogs There are few people who understand dogs better than Jennifer Arnold. Twenty-five years after she founded Canine Assistants, a nationally recognized nonprofit that raises and provides service dogs for people with disabilities, Arnold had an epiphany. She’d always approached the education of dogs with kindness and compassion—eschewing the faux science of fear and domination-based training methods. And she’d always understood dogs to be uniquely, uncannily attuned to their human companions; in fact she depended on it—she knew that the bond that developed between a person and their service dog was the single greatest predictor of that partnership’s success and, conversely, failure to bond brought about anxiety and distress in dogs. But it wasn’t until recent scientific findings confirmed her hands-on experience with dogs’ intuitive social skills that she was willing to put this bold idea to the test: Dogs who bond with us completely and unconditionally will seek to please us and, with minimal cues, can learn to make remarkably sophisticated decisions about their own behavior. Sure, dogs can be taught commands such as “sit,” “stay,” and “heel,” but even the kindest reward and punishment models were merely manipulating dogs’ behavior, rather than unleashing their unique social genius and innate ability to navigate the world. In this groundbreaking, persuasive, and heartfelt book, Arnold shows us how every dog—no matter their age—can thrive through Bond-Based Choice Teaching. Her proprietary method has been hailed by leading canine behavioral scientists and is being adopted by notable dog trainers, advocates, humane societies, and puppies behind bars programs across the country. For this liberating, revolutionary method to succeed, Arnold says, love really is all you need. Advance praise for Love Is All You Need “Jennifer Arnold, who has trained service dogs for the past twenty years for people with physical disabilities, offers a window into the world of ‘man’s best friend.’ Arnold, who believes that dogs are attuned to their owner’s needs and emotions, shares tips she thinks every dog owner should know.”—ABC News “[Arnold] takes pride in facilitating the powerful relationship between every service dog and its owner—a bond that is as much about companionship and comfort as it is about health and safety.”—Everyday Health “Within the world of dogs and canine behavior there are only a handful of people who truly ‘move the needle’ when it comes to innovation, novel approaches, and intuitive thinking—Jennifer Arnold is one of those rare few. Constantly pushing boundaries of traditional thought, she not only provides fresh perspectives about how we interact with and learn from man’s best friend, she fearlessly forges new paths that stimulate and engage dog lovers as well as behavior experts and explores possibilities which previously may have seemed out of reach.”—Victoria Stilwell, star of Animal Planet’s It’s Me or the Dog and CEO of Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Training From the Hardcover edition.

You and your dog are a lot alike. By several behavioral measures, your dog’s mental abilities are equivalent to those of a two to three and a half-year-old toddler. Dogs can learn up to 250 words, count from one to five and understand basic arithmetic. Your dog can imitate and understand your behavior and has a sense of fairness. Doesn’t it make sense to treat these sensitive, intelligent creatures a bit more like children? Kids—and dogs—raised with kindness and respect grow up happy. And happy is good. Modern Dog Parenting will show readers that yes, you can love your dog and live with him, too. Dogs (and the people who love them) are tired of the school of dominant, top-dog training. They are looking for a new kind of pack leader: someone funny, enthusiastic, intuitive, approachable, and, above all, effective. And they’ve found her. Sarah Hodgson rejects dominance-based training and gets astonishing results with a blend of wit, compassion, energy, and proven skills. She communicates instructions clearly, directs behavior compassionately, and rewards success lavishly. Topics include: *Understanding the signs your dog is giving you *Having fun while learning manners *How to fit your dog into your lifestyle *How to communicate lovingly and effectively with your dog

In her second Science Dog book, Linda Case tackles commonly held beliefs about canine nutrition, pet foods, behavior, social cognition and training. Each of the book’s 32 chapters explores a current issue that is of interest to dog owners and pet professionals and presents the scientific evidence that supports or refutes commonly held claims and beliefs. Learn about pet food ingredients and research showing that what is on the label may not always be in the food, about measures of food quality (and what consumers may not know about the foods that they buy), and about the safety and digestibility of popular dog treats and chews. Other chapters review new information regarding canine communication, factors that help or inhibit a dog's ability to learn, and the effectiveness of different types of training methods. Find out if dogs are capable of “knowing what someone else knows”, if they feel empathy for their friends, if they bark for no reason, and if they are capable of feeling guilt following a misdeed. Learn more about breed stereotyping, factors that influence our perceptions of dogs, and which canine characteristics most influence our attraction to particular dogs. This newest Science Dog book has something for everyone who works with and trains dogs, as well as for those who simply love dogs and enjoy learning more about our canine best friends.
