We want to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the holidays and thank you for your continued support of Dogwise. We have said it before, but we would not be in business without the seemingly unquenchable thirst you all show for more knowledge about the behavior, training and care of dogs. We knew something about books, but very little about dogs, when we started this venture now almost 30 years ago. And we give thanks every day that our customers told us what they wanted and needed - all we had to be were good listeners!
Here are the results of a quick little poll we took of some of the books that our staff really feel helped them become more 'dogwise' about dogs:
Don't Shoot the Dog by Karen Pryor On sale for $12.75.
The Culture Clash by Jean Donaldson. On sale for $14.96.
Dogs: A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior and Evolution by Ray and Lorna Coppinger. On sale for $13.46.
The Other End of the Leash by Patricia McConnell. On sale for $12.00.
When Pigs Fly - Training Success With Impossible Dogs by Jane Killion. On sale for $14.96.
We will be closed on December 24th and December 31st to allow staff a couple of 4 day weekends which is well deserved.
All of our 2016 Calendars are marked down 30% too!
Newest books & products:
The Secret History of Kindness: Learning From How Dogs Learn by Melissa Holbrook Pierson. Years back, Melissa Holbrook Pierson brought home a border collie named Mercy, without a clue of how to get her to behave. Stunned after hiring a trainer whose immediate rapport with Mercy seemed magical, Pierson began delving into the techniques of positive reinforcement. She made her way to B. F. Skinner, the behavioral psychologist who started it all, the man who could train a pigeon to dance in minutes and whose research on how behavior is acquired has ramifications for military dolphin trainers, athletes, dancers, and, as he originally conceived, society at large.
Puppy Steps: Easy to Follow Positive Training System by Libby Rockaway. This new book contains everything from choosing your puppy and puppy development to training your puppy and fixing unwanted behaviors. Real step-by-step training photos help guide the reader through the process to make training steps clear and understandable. Additionally, the Fido character demonstrates concepts in a fun and entertaining way. Puppy Steps is a great resource for anyone who has or plans on getting their new best friend!
Puppy Parenting Session for the Veterinary Facilty DVD by Dr. Jennifer Messer. This Curriculum Manual gives you detailed plans for running a 90-minute puppy parenting session that is sure to please! FOR DOG TRAINERS this is a terrific way to build relationships with local clinics and gain puppy class registrants, or to add a stand alone puppy class to your course offerings. FOR CLINIC STAFF this is a much more efficient way of educating puppy parents on behaviour and training basics. Stop squeezing it all into jam packed vaccine appointments and start teaching clients in a fun & relaxed group setting!
