We are really excited to have two great professional dog trainer conferences to attend this fall where we can meet and greet you personally with a booth full of books and DVDs. We hope that many of you can come to both, but if not both then at least one. Vegas in October and Florida in November sounds pretty darn nice, not to mention educational and fun. As always we will be focusing the inventory we bring on books or DVDs by the speakers, but we will have the most important books on hand that professional trainers need.
The Association of Professional Dog Trainers will be in Las Vegas October 12-15, click here for details. Among the speakers and presenters will be:
The Pet Professional Guild Educational Summit will be in Tampa, Florida November 7-11, click here for details. Among the speakers and presenters will be:

Pit Bull: The Battle Over an American Icon by Bronwen Dickey. The hugely illuminating story of how a popular breed of dog became the most demonized and supposedly the most dangerous of dogsand what role humans have played in the transformation. Whether through love or fear, hatred or devotion, humans are bound to the history of the pit bull. With unfailing thoughtfulness, compassion, and a firm grasp of scientific fact, Dickey offers us a clear-eyed portrait of this extraordinary breed, and an insightful view of Americans relationship with their dogs.
Pet Politics: The Political and Legal Lives of Cats, Dogs, and Horses in Canada and the United States by Susan Hunter and Richard A. Brisbin Jr. The authors examine how people and governments classify three species of pets or companion animalscats, dogs, and horsesfor various degrees of legal protection. They then detail how interest groups shape the agenda for companion animal legislation and regulation, and the legislative and administrative formulation of anticruelty, kennel licensing, horse slaughter, feral and roaming cat, and breed ban policies.
Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? by Frans De Waal. What separates your mind from an animals? Maybe you think its your ability to design tools, your sense of self, or your grasp of past and future?all traits that have helped us define ourselves as the planets preeminent species. But in recent decades, these claims have eroded, or even been disproven outright, by a revolution in the study of animal cognition. Take the way octopuses use coconut shells as tools; elephants that classify humans by age, gender, and language; or Ayumu, the young male chimpanzee at Kyoto University whose flash memory puts that of humans to shame. Based on research involving crows, dolphins, parrots, sheep, wasps, bats, whales, and of course chimpanzees and bonobos, Frans de Waal explores both the scope and the depth of animal intelligence. He offers a firsthand account of how science has stood traditional behaviorism on its head by revealing how smart animals really are, and how weve underestimated their abilities for too long.
