Small farms and large ranches are turning to dogs as a humane and ecologically sound way to protect their investments. This newly revised edition will make it easy to select a breed, care for, and train a livestock protection dog. Training methods have been refined and expanded, and there's even a chapter on guarding unusual stock, plus a discussion of theory, history and selection; livestock protection breeds as dual companion/working dogs; puppy temperament testing and training. Illustrated. Topics include: • What a livestock protection dog can do • Selecting a puppy • Caring for your dog • Behavioral problems and solutions • Preparations for a family companion • Guarding unusual stock • Older dogs • Puppy temperament testing and training • Plus much more!!! Note from Dogwise Publishing: Please be aware that this older title may recommend some training techniques that are now considered outdated. At the time of publication the use of negative reinforcement and positive punishment were more widely used to teach certain types of behaviors, especially with dogs who display a high degree of resilience. We encourage owners to always use the least intrusive, minimally aversive methods possible. https://m.iaabc.org/about/position-statements/lima/

How did animal breeding emerge as a movement? Who took part and for what reasons? How do the pedigree and market systems work? What light might the movement shed on the assumptions behind human eugenics? In Bred for Perfection, Margaret Derry provides the most comprehensive and accessible book yet published on the human quest to improve and develop livestock. Derry, herself a breeder and trained historian of science, explores the "triangle" of genetics, eugenics, and practical breeding, focusing on Shorthorn cattle, show dogs and working dogs, and one type of purebred horse, the Arabian. By examining specific breeders and the animals they produced, she illuminates the role of technology, genetics, culture, and economics in the system of purebred breeding. Bred for Perfection also provides the historical context in which this system arose, adding to our understanding of how domestication works and how our welfare—since the dawn of time—has been intertwined with the lives of animals.

No one knows dogs better than author and psychologist Stanley Coren and no one writes so well about their personalities and temperaments. This new book distills his many years of expertise in both canine and human behaviour into a fascinating and highly readable guide to how your dog's individual personality influences everything he does and hence, his relationship with you. Packed with the very latest scientific research and leavened with Stanley Coren's trademark fund of stories and anecdotes, WHY DOES MY DOG ACT THAT WAY? is above all a practical guide which will provide every dog owner with the key to greater understanding of his or her dog. The book explains the specific traits of numerous popular breeds and examines how this affects the way they react in and out of the home, with other dogs, with people and with children. It also looks at variations within breeds and at the behaviour patterns of many mixed breeds which will have inherited a cocktail of characteristics from their parents. And it includes a fun, comprehensive and easy-to-follow multiple-choice personality test you can do with your dog at home which will reveal your dog's innermost secrets and help you to understand what makes him tick, enabling you to fine-tune your training to suit both your dog and you.
