Dogwise Publishing is pleased to announce the arrival of a revised and expanded new edition of Jean Donaldson's Dogs Are From Neptune. Dogs are dogs, people are people and yes it does seem that we are often on different planets! As any of our long time customers know, we have been big fans of Jean ever since the publication of her ground-breaking The Culture Clash way back in the 1990's. Jean does something in her many books and DVDs (click here to see all them all) that is all too rare in a world where people want simplistic answers to what are often complex behavior problems - she insists that the research be done on a scientific basis and that results be verifiable. You will see this refreshing approach again and again in the 41 topical essays found in this new edition. One of the highlights of the new edition is five new essays focusing on people ranging from Jean's "heroes" in the world of scientific research, to burnout among shelter workers, to what is our favorite essay - "Dogs in Drag." What is it about dressing a dog up in a cute costume that makes owners more attentive to their dogs and enthusiastic in their training? That essay alone is worth the price of the book!
One of Jean's heroes that she writes about in Neptune is Steven Pinker, author of The Blank Slate and many other books. So we thought it would be a nice touch to make The Blank Slate our book of the week, marked down 25% to $11.95 until August 19th. This book is concerned with one of the issues that frequently comes up when looking at canine behavior. Is the behavior displayed just instinct or is it molded by the environment? Or is it some combination of the two? While Pinker's work focuses on humans, there is a lot of applicability to dogs. Not real easy reading, but then again, its not a simple subject!
