Dogs are a part of nearly 40 percent of United States households. With this in mind, author Linda P. Case has written the definitive textbook on dogs and their care. Completely updated and revised, the second edition of The Dog covers four areas of compelling interest: the bond between dogs and humans, canine behavior, canine health and disease, and canine nutrition. Aiming to enhance the human-dog bond, author Case uses clear, understandable writing to explain selective breeding, training principles, solution to common behavior problems, diet and nutrition, and preventative health care. Case liberally uses distinctive figures and tables, current references plus suggested readings, and a thorough glossary to aid in comprehension. More in-depth that most dog books, The Dog will prove to be an indispensable tool for undergraduate companion animal courses, veterinary technician courses, and dog care/training courses. In addition, it will serve as a valuable resource for professional breeders, trainers, exhibitors, and veterinary clinicians.

Dieses Buch wirft eine revolutionäre, neue Perspektive auf unseren Umgang mit Hunden: Es beleuchtet unser Verhalten im Vergleich zu dem der Hunde! Als Doktorin der Zoologie, Tierverhaltenstherapeutin und Hundetrainerin mit mehr als zwanzig Jahren Praxiserfahrung betrachtet Patricia McConnell uns Menschen augenzwinkernd wie eine interessante Spezies von Säugetieren. Fundiert, aber höchst unterhaltsam beschreibt sie, wie wir uns in Gegenwart von Hunden verhalten, wie die Hunde unser Verhalten interpretieren (oder missverstehen) könnten und wie wir am besten mit unseren vierbeinigen Freunden umgehen, um das Beste aus ihnen herauszuholen. Beginnen Sie, Hundeverhalten aus der Sicht eines Hundes zu betrachten und Sie werden verstehen, warum vieles, das wie Ungehorsam Ihres Hundes aussieht, einfach ein großes Missverständnis ist. Denn wir sind Primaten, die Hunde Caniden - und sprechen folglich andere Sprachen! Hier erfahren Sie: - Wie Ihr Hund eher auf Zuruf kommt, wenn Sie sich weniger wie ein Affe und mehr wie ein Hund benehmen - Warum der Rat, "Dominanz" über den Hund erlangen zu müssen, Sie in Schwierigkeiten bringen kann - Welche Persönlichkeitstypen Menschen und Hunden gemeinsam sind und warum die meisten Hunde lieber mit großzügigen Herrschern als mit "Möchtegern-Alphas" zusammenleben - ... und vieles mehr! Zahlreiche kleine Geschichten, Erlebnisse und amüsante Begebenheiten am Rande machen dieses Buch zu einer Fundgrube für Aha-Erlebnisse, bei denen höchstes Lesevergnügen garantiert ist. So viel Spaß kann Verhaltensforschung machen!

"...purebred or mixed, with this book any dog can become a Canine Good Citizen.... The Volhards'...approach to training, which they call the Motivational Method,...is designed to do just that motivate the owner and the dog. The Motivational Method is grounded on a thorough knowledge of how people learn and dog behavior. Since 1983 they have authored or co-authored four major books on dog training and teaching dog Obedience classes, and have produced four video tapes. I am...pleased that they have written this book on the Canine Good Citizen. I cannot think of anyone else who could have done a better job. This book contains everything the reader needs to know about training any dog to become a Canine Good Citizen. Still, there is much more the book shares a wealth of insights for the beginner, as well as the experienced dog person. The book's best feature is that it gives each person the means to tailor the training to the individual dog's character and temperament. It thoroughly explains what makes dogs different and how these differences dictate the approach to training that needs to be taken." James E. Dearinger, AKC Vice President, Obedience The American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen program was developed to promote responsible dog ownership in a manner that would be easy for both dog and owner. Any book that promotes and encourages dog owners to participate is doing a public service, and this book does it well. "This book is aptly named. Yes, every dog, both pure-bred dogs and mixed breeds, can be a good citizen if their owners care enough to make it happen. The key is to encourage dog owners everywhere to be responsible enough to make their dogs a pleasure to be around and able to handle most situations that they might be expected to encounter in everyday life."
