No Buddy Left Behind

No Buddy Left Behind unveils the life-altering relationships American troops serving in the Middle East have shared with the stray dogs and cats they've rescued from the brutalities of war. Overcoming monumental obstacles, Operation Baghdad Pups' program manager Terri Crisp makes it her mission to save these wartime “buddies,” get them out of danger, and bring them home to the soldiers who love them. How exactly does someone get animals out of a country at war when normal resources are lacking and every step of a plan to transport animals could get you arrested, kidnapped, or blown apart? As Crisp soon learns, each rescue mission from first to last is a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experience, and no animal is truly safe until its paws touch U.S. soil. Terri and her team have saved the lives of 223 dogs and forty-two cats befriended by military personnel since February 2008—and No Buddy Left Behind finally tells this story.

People Training for Good Dogs

As a former animal officer, Melissa Berryman witnessed every failure imaginable among dogs, their owners, and her community. Drawing from these experiences and her knowledge of both human and canine behaviors, Berryman created the People Training for Good Dogs program to help owners incorporate the canine point of view into dog owners' handling skills. Current understanding leads owners to believe that they must accept a passive role in the complex relationships they have with their dogs and their com-munities. Berryman draws important contrasts between how we train horses and how we train dogs, and she brings to light the consequences of expecting dogs to act and react as people do. By offering insight into the importance of acknowledging and working with core canine social and behavioral drives, Berryman provides owners with sound handling techniques. Staying true to dogs' instincts, she offers a training method of positive and negative feedback that can dramatically improve any owner's level of control. By speaking frankly about aggression and the very real potential for injury when dealing with a dog you can't communicate with, she shares an accessible approach that anyone can use to defuse a potentially disastrous situation.Written with humor and compassion, "People Training for Good Dogs" will quickly show you how to use clear feed-back in order to achieve off-leash vocal control.

Lucca the War Dog

Lucca K458 is a decorated and highly skilled military working dog who belonged to an elite group trained to work off-leash to sniff out deadly explosives.

Lucca the War Dog is the gritty and gripping account of Lucca's adventures on and off the battlefields, including tense, lifesaving explosives finds and rooftop firefights, as well as the bravery of fellow handlers and dogs she served with. But it's also the tale of a bond between Lucca and her handlers and how together they overcame the endless brutalities of war, including her own loss of a limb, and the traumas such violence can inflict.
