Dear Dogwise Customer,
We generally feature the newest books in our weekly update so that you can be
aware of all the latest information in the world of dogs. And this has been
a particularly good year for new books so we have had a lot to tell you about!
However, there are lots of older books that are still in print (although
not always easy to find) that are
just as relevant and valuable as when they first came out that you should
consider if you don't have them on your bookshelves. Here are five titles
in five different categories, all at least six years old, that are among
our all time favorites:
Behavior and Learning Theory: Excel-erated
Learning by Pam Reid.
Learning theory explained "in plain English," one of the most highly
thought of books we carry.
Training: Purely Positive Training by Sheila Booth. The first book
to promote positive training methods for a variety of competitive
canine activities. Voted best training book by the Dog Writer's
Association in 1999.
Genetics: Future Dog by Patricia Wilkie. Although there have been
many advancements made in the understanding of canine genetics in
recent years, this book is the one we recommend as a first read for
people who want to delve into this subject. Very understandable,
well illustrated - if your eyes usually glaze over when reading
about genetics, this book should solve that problem.
Christine Zink. The first book to promote a training and diet regimen for
canine athletes. If you have
a dog that you want to physically perform at her best this is still
the best book on the subject.
Peter Goody. This jewel from England remains our most detailed illustrated
anatomy book on the dog. It is
a fabulous resource book with wonderful line illustrations and
Thanks from all of us at Dogwise.
