This day-long seminar looks at both the differences and similarities of emotions in dogs and people, and includes solutions to problems motivated by fear and anger. The day ends with an in-depth examination of why we love dogs as much as we do, and celebrates the bond between us and our four-footed friends.

    Learning secrets - 3 DVD'er

    Af Dr. Ian Dunbar

    fra 2004 på forlaget Tawzer

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 175 kr – stand: ★★★★★★

    Training styles and techniques come and go. New methods come into vogue, other methods become old, and yet other methods are so old, that they become new again. Regardless of your specific training philosophy and individual tricks and techniques, you can only grow as a trainer and/or behavior counselor, if you have a thorough understanding of learning theory. Unfortunately, if you learnt learning theory from academic texts and lectures, probably you will have discovered that much of it doesn't work in practice. Most learning theory has been derived from observing consistent computers training rats and pigeons. As such, a good 50% of laboratory research findings are irrelevant when inconsistent humans train dogs. Specifically, most reinforcement schedules do not exist outside of the laboratory, and many punishment techniques are notoriously ineffective. Learn how to distinguish between text book theory, laboratory theory, and learning theory that works in practice. The time has come for dog trainers to rewrite a practical learning theory, which is effective and especially, expedient for pet dog training. Learn the Eight Criteria for Rewards and Punishments, which make learning lightning fast and solidify retention. The criteria for punishment are of paramount importance. One definition of training could be, that unwanted behavior (and hence, maybe the use of punishment) progressive decreases until eliminated. If, on the other hand, punishment frequency does not decrease, then the technique is not training, but abuse. Learn the differences between using goodies as Lures, Rewards, Distractions, Motivators, and Bribes. Learn how to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness (time and trials to criterion) of the most common reward-based, dog-friendly dog training techniques. Learn how to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of five different bimodial feedbacks. And play the training game to see when you (as a dog) learn the quickest. Learn the Five Stages of Training. Learn how to empower secondary reinforcements. Learn how to empower low-grade primary reinforcements (e.g., kibble) as the most powerful secondary reinforcement in training. Learn how to achieve the Holy Grail of dog training to empower the response as its own secondary reinforcement so that the dog gladly wants to do what you want him to do.

    Fighting Dominance in a Dog Whispering World - 2 DVD'er

    Af Jean Donaldson & Ian Dunbar

    fra 2007 på forlaget DogWise

    Kategori: Faglitteratur

    pris: 135 kr – stand: ★★★★★★

    Winner of the IIACAB Award for 2007 Best Dog Behavior DVD Watch Jean Donaldson and Ian Dunbar take on the controversial and often misunderstood concept of dominance behavior in dogs. Do dogs really try to be "the boss"? Learn what science knows, and doesn't know, about canine behavior. A timely subject given the popularity of television shows featuring dogs behaving badly and trainers rehabilitating them - all within an hour! There is an incredible interest in dog behavior and training as evidenced by the growing popularity of TV shows that focus on how to solve problem behaviors. Often, viewers are told that the problem is that their dog is trying to be “dominant” and that the owner simply needs to assert him/herself as the "leader of the pack". While this may make for compelling TV, dominance in dogs has not been subject to much scientific research. Many dog experts, well schooled in canine learning and behavior, dispute the idea that dominance plays a significant role in pet dog behavior. In this new DVD, leading canine authorities Jean Donaldson and Ian Dunbar take on this sometimes-controversial subject. Does dominance really exist and how does it impact the relationships between dogs and dogs and people and dogs? Do you have to be “dominant” over your dog to ensure that she is well trained? What does the modern trainer do or say to a client who does not understand why he or she does not train dogs "the way they do on TV"? All of these issues are dealt with in this fascinating, 4+ hour DVD by experts who place more stock in research and empirical results than in explanations based personal experience.

The Veterinarians' Guide to Natural Remedies for Dogs is both an introduction and a guide to the vast world of natural healing methods, treatments, and foods now available for dogs. Author Martin Zucker offers advice from dozens of holistic practitioners and licensed veterinarians, who share their recipes, insights, and "prescriptions."

    Hunden Människan Relationen

    Af Kerstin Malm

    1. udgave fra 2006 på forlaget Solveigs

    ISBN: 9197559105

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 75 kr – stand: ★★★★★

    Kerstin Malm är fil doktor i hundetologi. Hon har en lång praktisk erfarenhet av arbete med problemhundar och håller utbildningar och kurser i ämnet. www.k.malm.hundetologi.info "En hund är en trevlig kamrat om den trivs och mår bra. Med rätt uppfostran blir den en glädjespridare. Men många hundar får aldrig möjligheten att utveckla sin fulla potential, vilket gör att de bereder sina ägare stora bekymmer. Författaren till denna utmärkta hundhandbok är fil.doktor i hundetologi och har lång praktisk erfarenhet av arbete med problemhundar. Innehållsförteckningen visar t.ex. på information om rasens betydelse, valptiden, miljöträning, socialt bemötande, träning och daglig uppfostran, hundens vardagsliv, smärta, sjukdom och åldersförändringar, hundägaranalys, kastrering. Med sina gedigna kunskaper om hundens psyke ger Kerstin Malm oss svar på många av våra funderingar - varför skäller hunden okontrollerat, varför kan den vara aggressiv mot både människor och hundar, varför den inte kan vara ensam utan att yla eller bita sönder något o.s.v. En mjuk uppfostran som grundar sig på uppmuntran och beröm fungerar ju - inte oväntat - bäst, vilket tydligt framgår av denna oumbärliga bok."

    Aggressivitet hos hundar

    Af Kerstin Malm

    1. udgave fra 2005 på forlaget Solveigs

    ISBN: 9197559121

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 75 kr – stand: ★★★★★

    "I en serie om tre böcker som handlar om hundens beteende och samspelet med människan är detta den tredje. På ett mycket balanserat och genomtänkt sätt redogör Malm för hundars aggressiva beteende. Syftet med boken är att öka vår förståelse för begreppet och visa på etiskt acceptabla förhållningssätt. Att respektera och förstå hunden är grunden för att komma till rätta med ett oönskat beteende. Med hjälp av fallbeskrivningar visar Malm hur hundars aggressivitet kan ta sig uttryck, hur unikt varje fall är och ger exempel på lämpliga behandlingar och och åtgärder. Att behandla hundars aggressiva beteende med hårdhänta metoder är förkastligt och i många fall kontraproduktivt. Eller för att tala klarspråk: Hundar får inte bestraffas eller godtyckligt avlivas! Boken kan användas i utbildningssammanhang, men även med stor behållning läsas av den enskilde hundägaren."

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 50 kr – stand: ★★★★★★

    When you choose a new puppy, you need to meet six developmental deadlines before your puppy is just five months old. "BEFORE You Get Your Puppy" covers the first three developmental deadlines covering the period of puppy selection until your puppy's first week at home. 1st Developmental Deadline: Your Education About Puppy Education - Before you search for a puppy you need to complete your education about puppy education. You need to know how to select a good puppy and how puppies work. Selecting a puppy is similar to selecting a car: Do lots of research beforehand and "test drive" a wide variety. But first, you need to learn how to drive. 2nd Developmental Deadline: Evaluating Your Prospective Puppy's Progress - Before you choose your puppy, you need to know how to assess your prospective puppy's current socialization and educational status. Regardless of breed or breeding, if socialization, housetraining, and basic manners are not well underway by eight weeks of age, the puppy is already developmentally retarded. 3rd Developmental Deadline: Errorless Housetraining & Chewtoy-Training Make certain that an errorless housetraining and chewtoy-training program is instituted from the very first day your puppy comes home

    After you get your puppy

    Af Dr. Ian Dunbar

    1. udgave fra 2001 på forlaget James & Kenneth

    ISBN: 1888047011

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 50 kr – stand: ★★★★★★

    Now you have your puppy, the clock is ticking and you need to meet three more Developmental Deadlines before your puppy is five months old. 4th Developmental Deadline — Socializing Your Puppy to People Your Most Urgent Priority is to socialize your puppy to a wide variety of people, especially children, men, and strangers, before he is twelve weeks old. Well-socialized puppies grow up to be wonderful companions, whereas antisocial dogs are difficult, time-consuming, and potentially dangerous. As a rule of thumb, your puppy needs to meet at least one hundred people before he is three months old. Since your puppy is still too young to venture out to dog parks and sidewalks, you’ll need to start inviting people to your home right away. 5th Developmental Deadline — Teaching Bite Inhibition Your Most Important Priority is that your puppy learns to inhibit the force of his bites and develop a "soft mouth"; before he is eighteen weeks old. Whenever a dog bites a person, or fights with another dog, the single most important prognostic factor is the degree of bite inhibition and hence, the likelihood and seriousness of injury. Accidents happen. Someone may tread on the dog’s paw, or a child may trip over the dog while he’s gnawing a bone. A dog may snap and lunge at a person when hurt or frightened, but if the dog has well-established bite inhibition, it is unlikely the dog’s teeth will puncture, or even touch the skin. 6th Developmental Deadline — Continuing Socialization in The World at Large The Most Enjoyable Priority of dog ownership is to introduce your well-socialized puppy to the world at large. Your dog will only remain sociable and confident if he continues to meet and greet at least three unfamiliar people and three unfamiliar dogs every day. Meeting the same people and dogs over and over is not sufficient. Your dog needs to practice meeting, greeting, and getting along with strangers, not simply getting along with old friends. Regular walks with your dog are as essential as they are enjoyable.

    Doctor Dunbar´s Good Little Dog Book

    Af Dr. Ian Dunbar

    1. udgave fra 2003 på forlaget James & Kenneth

    ISBN: 188804702X

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 50 kr – stand: ★★★★★★

    This little book is intended primarily as a brief but comprehensive guide to puppy training. Consequently, it contains hints for socialization, temperament training and behavior modification as well as tips for teaching basic manners. Dr. Dunbar’s lure/reward training techniques are certainly not limited to puppies. On the contrary, they have become the method of choice for instructing good-natured, but otherwise uneducated adult dogs. Our best friend—the domestic dog—is a social animal. It would be unfair and antisocial not to train it. How else could we communicate? Luckily, dogs can easily learn our language… if we teach them! Basically, training comprises teaching dogs ESL—English as a Second Language—so that our dogs will understand human words for doggy behaviors and actions. Lure/reward training is de rigeur for training a wide variety of animals, including lions, tigers, killer whales, and grizzly bears, Over a hundred years ago, similar reward-based methods were the accepted practice for training all dogs and puppies. Unfortunately, in the twentieth century, the Trainers from The Dark Side inflicted a harsher regime of laborious, on-leash, push-pull, squish-squash, narrow-brained methods on unsuspecting owners and their dogs. Sadly, domination was the focus and the poor defenseless dog was viewed as an adversary in the training arena. Force is unnecessary and almost always counterproductive. Why treat your best friend like your worst enemy? Welcome back to the historically-proven, so-old-that-it’s-new-again, natural, common-sense, and enjoyable way to train your dog—off-leash, lure/reward, fun and games, dog-friendly dog training. Dr. Dunbar’s training techniques are altogether quicker, easier, gentler, more effective, and certainly considerably more enjoyable for you and your dog. And so without further ado, turn to the Good Manners section and begin training your puppydog right away. Lure/reward training techniques work like a treat!

    Hundmöten

    Af Memea Mohlin

    1. udgave fra 2006 på forlaget Prisma

    ISBN: 9151845180

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 75 kr – stand: ★★★★★★

    Visst kan hundar prata! De har ett fantastiskt kroppsspråk och ett stort antal läten. Men det krävs stor kunskap för att vi människor ska förstå vad de säger. Att studera hundars språk är fascinerande. Två hundar möter varandra och börjar genast konversera livligt. Deras beteenden varierar beroende på om de känner varandra sedan tidigare, och om de gillar eller ogillar varandra. I Hundmöten får vi möta ett antal hundar och lära oss ”höra” vad de säger till varandra i olika situationer. Pedagogiska illustrationer och foton tydliggör exemplen i texten. Genom att lära oss hundarnas eget språk kan vi, i vår tur, lättare kommunicera och få dem att förstå vad vi vill. Det är en spännande och viktig kunskap som är nödvändig för att få en fin kontakt och en väl fungerande samvaro med den egna hunden

    Dogs Bite - but balloons and slippers are more dangerous

    Af Janis Bradley

    1. udgave fra 2005 på forlaget James & Kenneth

    ISBN: 1888047186

    Kategorier: Husdyr, Faglitteratur

    pris: 50 kr – stand: ★★★★★

    Dogs are dangerous. And they are more dangerous to children than to adults. Not as dangerous of course, as kitchen utensils, drapery cords, five-gallon water buckets, horses, or cows. Not nearly as dangerous as playground equipment, swimming pools, skateboards, or bikes. And not remotely as dangerous as family, friends, guns, or cars. Here’s the reality. Dogs almost never kill people. A child is more likely to die choking on a marble or a balloon, and an adult is more likely to die in a bedroom slipper related accident. Your chances of being killed by a dog are roughly one in 18 million. You are twice as likely to win a super lotto jackpot on a single ticket than be killed by a dog. You are five times as likely to be killed by a bolt of lightning than be killed by a dog. Because it is so extraordinary, lightning is often regarded as a universal cliché for an Act of God. Dog-attack deaths are even more extraordinary—five times more extraordinary. The supposed epidemic numbers of dog bites splashed across the media are absurdly inflated by dubious research and by counting bites that don’t actually hurt anyone. Even when dogs do injure people, the vast majority of injuries are at the Band-Aid level. Dogs enhance the lives of millions more people than even the most inflated estimates of dog-bite victims. Search-and-rescue and cancer-detecting dogs save significant numbers of human lives, and assistance dogs enormously improve the quality of many more. Infants who live with dogs have fewer allergies. People with dogs have less cardiovascular disease, better heart attack survival, and fewer backaches, headaches, and flu symptoms. Petting your dog lowers stress and people who live with dogs just plain feel better than people who don’t. Yet lawmakers, litigators, and insurers press for less dog ownership. This must stop. We must maintain perspective. Yes, dogs bite. But even party balloons and bedroom slippers are more dangerous. “A tour-de-force examination of dog bites. Among other persuasive appeals for sanity, Janis Bradley has outed “lumping”: the erroneous connection between kitchen-injury level bites and maiming or fatal dog attacks. She dares to be rational. Her rationality will—hopefully—raise the level of discussion in a topic mired in hysteria. Why do we get so excited about this particular class of injury? Enter the irrational. Human brains are organs that evolved for a single over-arching purpose: to maximize the representation of genes possessed by an individual brain’s owner in subsequent generations. We evolved in a different environment than the one we currently inhabit, however. Because of this, we are genetically predisposed to learn to fear animals with pointy teeth much more than to fear, say, hurtling along in hunks of metal at sixty-five miles per hour. Our brains are also not reliable truth detection devices. Any instances of truth detection are lucky by-products of selection for reproductive success. Scientific method was developed because of the chronic, abysmal failure of our brains to dope out reality, coupled with a fascination to know truth. Our intuitions are flat-footed much of the time. Stephen Jay Gould once mused, “the invalid assumption that correlation implies cause is probably among the two or three most serious and common errors of human reasoning." If one searches the backgrounds of that small minority of dogs that kill people, lo and behold, many of them will have previously engaged in species-normal ritualized aggression: growls, snarls and kitchen-injury or less level bites in predictable contexts. This then becomes the foundation for the faulty causal leap, a slippery slope argument that says: if a dog is growly around his food dish, he will someday seriously hurt or kill someone. What is omitted is that a significant percentage of all dogs engage in species-normal ritualized aggression and the overwhelming majority will never hurt, much less kill, anyone. A sign
