Training & Behaviour
The Culture Clash – Jean Donaldson
Helps us understand how dogs and humans relate to one another, with lots of practical advice on dog training.
Think Dog!: An Owner’s Guide to Canine Psychology – John Fisher
You dog starts chewing the furniture or acting aggressively towards children – what’s going on? If only you knew what your dog was thinking. John Fisher examines the psychology of the dog with the aim of explaining to owners how the world appears from a dog’s point of view.
Why Does My Dog? – John Fisher
Many dogs have problems or ‘behave badly’. John Fisher believes they aren’t ‘bad dogs’ – they are dogs whose owners don’t understand their pets motivations, reactions and needs. In this book, he helps us understand how dog behaviour is affected by diet, outmoded training methods and environment. ‘
Click to Calm: Healing the Aggressive Dog – Emma Parsons
A useful guide to clicker training – find out how to use effective and kind positive training techniques to help troubled dogs.
Karen Pryor first developed the technique of clicker training as a dolphin trainer, but clicker training is now used very successfully with dogs and many other animals, to provide training that is fun for the animal and easy on the trainer. This book is not as detailed a training manual as some of the others listed here, but it explains the overall principles of clicker training and how it can be applied to modify behaviour and as an effective teaching tool.
Getting in Touch with Your Dog: How to Understand and Influence Behaviour, Personality and Health – Linda Tellington-Jones
Linda Tellington-Jones is the creator of the Tellington TTouch method of training and communicating with animals. This book explains her positive approach to training, but this is more than just a training method – it can be used to help address all sorts of problem behaviours and also to help dogs with physical or mental problems become more confident and cope with life and their problems. This book is well illustrated so you can see exactly how the touches should be applied.
The Perfect Puppy – Gwen Bailey
If you are about to adopt a puppy, or if you know someone who has one (and is finding it harder work than they expected!) get this book.
It will help with vital puppy training such as socialisation with people and other dogs, house-training, how to control puppy mouthing and prevent it developing into something more painful – and lots more. Really useful if it’s your own puppy: if it’s someone else’s pup, it makes a great present ( and makes it much less likely that you will get bounced on, chewed or end up treading in puddles when you go to visit…)
Health & Healing
Although of course you should always consult your vet if your pets are ill, there are quite a few complementary treatments and therapies that can help your pets live happier healthier lives. We think these books are particularly useful:
Natural Healthcare for Pets – Richard Allport
How could additives and preservatives in your pet’s food and environment be affecting it? This book explores what complementary therapies are available, and looks at how therapies such as acupuncture, aromatherapy and massage can be used to help pets live a more healthy and natural life.
Discover an alternative approach to healing and learn to help your pets.
Bach Flower Remedies for Animals – Judy Howard, Stefan Ball
Find out how to use the Bach Flower Remedies range to help animals overcome behavioural or physical problems.
A very useful introduction to the ins and outs of owning an ex-racing greyhound as a pet. Highly recommended, particularly to first-time prospective greyhound owners.
How to Photograph Dogs – Nick Ridley
Improve your photos of your dogs using some of the tricks of the trade.
Good Guide to Dog-friendly Pubs, Hotels and B&Bs – Alistair Aird (Editor), Fiona Stapley (Editor)
Very handy for planning next year’s holidays!
