We have two missions here at Dogwise Publishing - one is to bring our customers great new training and health care books by leading authors, the other is to bring back to life classic books that have long been out of print though our Dogwise Classic program. We were delighted when we found that we had the opportunity to reprint one of the real classics, The Wild Canids - Their Systematics, Behavioral Ecology and Evolution compiled and edited by Dr. Michael Fox and originally published in 1975. The book contains thirty scholarly studies, many of which are now recognized to have been truly revolutionary in terms of how much they impacted our understanding of the behavior, evolution and genetics of the wild canids - and also the modern domestic dog. Many of you may have heard about the studies relating to selective breeding (for docility) of silver foxes in Russia conducted by D.K. Belyaev - now you have the chance the read the surprising results as originally published. Given how much controversy and even mythology still exists about wild canids, having access again to these ground-breaking studies should prove to be a real benefit to the modern student of canine behavior. We thank Dr. Fox for giving us the opportunity to work with him to bring this book back into print!
Speaking of classics (and we don't think he would mind being characterized that way!), we are pleased to offer up Ian Dunbar's Before & After Getting Your Puppy as our book of the week, starting today. Ian has long been regarded by many as the leading expert on puppies having been an early proponent of puppy classes, socialization, and positive training methods involving all members of a puppy's human family. His Sirius Puppy Training video (now a DVD) is as relevant today as it was when first produced over twenty years ago. Before & After has been a best seller as well since first published, and as the title implies, what you do before you get your puppy is almost as important as what you do afterward. A great book, available this week for only $14.96, a 25% discount.
Thanks from all of us at Dogwise.
