We always get asked after the APDT Conference, "What Sold The Best?" So for those of you who were not able to attend or couldn't get to our booth, here is what dog trainers were buying:
Culture Clash - 2nd edition, by Jean Donaldon. Always a popular
seller, the fact that the new edition has about 40% new material was
very compelling. Still considered by many to be the indispensable
book on dog behavior.
Dog Language by Roger Abrantes. Roger was a speaker at the
conference and that always stimulates sales. Roger's pioneering work
on how dogs communicate is the classic work in this field.
Dogs Bite by Janis Bradley. A fascinating book that was made
available to us for the first time at the conference. Puts the issue
of dogs bites and aggression in their proper context, weighs the
pros and cons of dog ownership, and provides strategies to avoid
Coaching People to Train Their Dogs by Terry Ryan. A conference
best seller two years running. You may be able to train dogs, but
the key is to coach and teach owners to train their dogs
effectively. A must have for trainers.
Bones Would Rain by Suzanne Clothier. Suzanne was another popular
speaker this year and this long time best seller remains popular
with trainers and anyone who loves dogs. We have hard cover versions
of Bones in stock now, we expect the paperback version to be in
stock in a few weeks. If you want paperback, check back with us
later in October.
Two new items to tell you about this week. First is Raising Puppies and Kids Together by Pia Silvani and Lynn Eckhardt. This subject is so critical for families with dogs - and getting it right is often the key to a long and happy life for the family dog(s). Great down-to-earth pointers for safe and efficient training. The other is The Healthy Pet Manual by Deborah Straw, a guide to the prevention and treatment of cancer. This is an expanded and revised version of Why is Cancer Killing Our Pets of which we have a limited number for sale at a reduced price on our bargain books page. How to take steps to improve your odds of avoiding cancer, treatment alternatives, and coping strategies.
