Parenting Your New Puppy

In this practical, readable and entertaining book, Caroline Spencer and Lesley Harris bring a new slant to a well-explored subject and propose significant shifts in an owner's understanding of why their puppy behaves as he does and what makes him tick. Like children, dogs are born without behavioural issues; it is what happens in the early weeks of life, and the way in which his new owner nurtures, guides and educates him that will enable him to become a well-balanced adult - or not. Drawing on a combined 40 years of experience, the authors will help you in your initial choice of a puppy. When you take him into your home, it will show you how to interpret natural canine communication and play, and how to use these signals to educate and guide your puppy in a positive way. The confidence he gains in you, the parent, will help him through sometimes difficult and confusing situations, to become a happy, trustworthy, and trusting friend for life.

Modern Dog Parenting

You and your dog are a lot alike. By several behavioral measures, your dog’s mental abilities are equivalent to those of a two to three and a half-year-old toddler. Dogs can learn up to 250 words, count from one to five and understand basic arithmetic. Your dog can imitate and understand your behavior and has a sense of fairness. Doesn’t it make sense to treat these sensitive, intelligent creatures a bit more like children? Kids—and dogs—raised with kindness and respect grow up happy. And happy is good. Modern Dog Parenting will show readers that yes, you can love your dog and live with him, too. Dogs (and the people who love them) are tired of the school of dominant, top-dog training. They are looking for a new kind of pack leader: someone funny, enthusiastic, intuitive, approachable, and, above all, effective. And they’ve found her. Sarah Hodgson rejects dominance-based training and gets astonishing results with a blend of wit, compassion, energy, and proven skills. She communicates instructions clearly, directs behavior compassionately, and rewards success lavishly. Topics include: *Understanding the signs your dog is giving you *Having fun while learning manners *How to fit your dog into your lifestyle *How to communicate lovingly and effectively with your dog

Parenting the Body  Mind  and Spirit

This book focuses on parenting the three elements of the human: the body, the mind, and the spirit. Traditional parenting skills have been abandoned or conveniently forgotten. Social pressures have detoured many self-respecting parents down a one-way street of irresponsibility. Within these pages are tried and true child-rearing principles that have sustained mankind for centuries and many generations. There is an old saying that if it ain't broke, don’t fix it. Modern social architects have attempted to do that for several generations, and the mass media has fallen in lock-step with their ideas. Why do we have children suing parents? Why do we have school administrations punishing the victims in school mishaps and giving less punishment to the perpetrator? Why do we have school administrators and teachers afraid to punish a student for fear of a lawsuit? Why do we have television productions in both cartoon and real life formats that show children disrespecting their parents as a norm in everyday life? I want you to engage your God-given talents with regard to raising children. It is through strong family units that we can return our society to a respectable community. It is through good parenting and taking responsibility for the children we give birth to that there can be a civil society.
