Long known as a dog coach to the stars—her clients include Oprah Winfrey, Ben Affleck, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Owen Wilson, Natalie Portman, and Larry King—Tamar Geller changed the way Americans relate to their dogs with her bestselling book The Loved Dog. Her approach is simple and down-to-earth. Instead of utilizing the negative and often painful feedback of physical dominance, choke chains, and prong collars, Tamar recommends love, play, and mutual respect as the keys to a happy home for dog and human alike. Now, Tamar makes her Loved Dog™ Method accessible for everyone with this day-by-day guide that will lead you through the first thirty days with your new dog—or help you make a fresh start with your current dog. Drawing on her studies of wolves in the wild and basing her method on the principles of child development, Tamar uses an "instincts versus choice" approach that satisfies a dog’s Seven Basic Needs and will result in a pet with good manners. 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog covers every question commonly asked by people embarking on the momentous journey of dog ownership: why it’s important to choose the appropriate dog for you and your lifestyle, what you can expect from a puppy versus an adult dog, how to introduce your new dog to your home, and how to respond when things don’t go according to plan. Tamar guides you every step of the way, from addressing undesired behaviors in your dog to crate and paper training him to introducing him to other dogs and helping him become relaxed with strangers. Included are important but often overlooked tips about the use of words and body language to communicate, the power of play, and the amazing value of teaching your dog some lighthearted pet tricks. Along the way, Tamar debunks myths in need of debunking: that dogs are frequently "alpha" by nature and need to be dominated; that discipline is the key to dog training, and that "success" only means getting your dog to do what you want. Instead, she shows how to align your dog's wishes with your own to create a rich and enduring relationship that works wonderfully for you both. Gentle, firm, and effective, 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog will build your relationship with your dog to make every new day together a day of love, joy, and discovery.

When the complexities of modern living demanded that, for his own protection as well as his master’s convenience, the dog be made controllable, the average owner sought advice from the most available source, which was, too often, some local dog-show exhibitor. Not realizing that, excepting a few praiseworthy individuals, these exhibitors were only superficially concerned with the qualities of use and companionship, an unfortunate dog owner would accept the sight of trophies or ribbons as the credits of an expert. Growing numbers of people and dogs continued to emphasize the advantages of proper dog-behavior and when, in 1935, The American Kennel Club instituted its obedience trials, the competition necessary to focus attention on results and improvement of methods was provided. And something else was observed. It was evident that thorough obedience training does more than assure a dog’s response to his master’s command; capacities for learning and emotional stability could be increased and integrated as permanent qualities of character. Recently, leading magazines of both general and specialized nature have made the public aware of the trained dog’s potential, and of the recreational possibilities of dog training as a hobby. Interest in dog-training classes and other activities where dogs are dignified by usefulness, rather than merely looked at, is evidence that the dog-training public has outgrown the “make a game” and “tid-bit tossing” techniques that, by not being founded on positive and proper motivations, demonstrate the inadequacy of the master, thus promoting failure of response at those times when control is most needed, as well as contributing to the dog’s feeling of insecurity. Dog owners of perspective have come to want the type of obedience upon which a blind person might stake his life, and the emotional stability that is vital to dogs in the presence of small, unpredictable children. This classic includes the following chapters: Introduction Lesson I. Fables and Foibles Lesson II. Correct Equipment Lesson III. The Foundation Lesson IV. Heeling Lesson V. Sitting Lesson VI. The Automatic Sit Lesson VII. The Sit-Stay Lesson VIII. The Down Lesson IX. Down-Stay Lesson X. Stand-For-Examination Lesson XI. Recall Lesson XII. Finish Lesson XIII. Polishing Lesson XIV. The Throw-Chain Lesson XV. The Light Line Lesson XVI. Don’t Lose It—Use It Problems

In this paperback edition is a foreword by activist and author John Robbins and a reader’s group study guide. This ground-breaking work, voted one of the top ten books of 2010 by VegNews Magazine, offers an absorbing look at why and how humans can so wholeheartedly devote ourselves to certain animals and then allow others to suffer needlessly, especially those slaughtered for our consumption. Social psychologist Melanie Joy explores the many ways we numb ourselves and disconnect from our natural empathy for farmed animals. She coins the term "carnism" to describe the belief system that has conditioned us to eat certain animals and not others. In Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows Joy investigates factory farming, exposing how cruelly the animals are treated, the hazards that meatpacking workers face, and the environmental impact of raising 10 billion animals for food each year. Controversial and challenging, this book will change the way you think about food forever.
