<b>What our dogs need to live a good life, and why we must come through for them</b><br />聽<br />Over the two decades she has spent raising and training service dogs for people with disabilities, Jennifer Arnold has come to a unique and profound understanding of the human-dog bond. Though it may seem simple and instinctive, the friendship and devotion we share with our pets is a wondrous evolutionary development. Our two species have come to rely on each other for protection, companionship, comfort, and happiness鈥攏eeds and benefits that go both ways. Yet when we step outside our designated roles and take on practices that require us to display dominance over our canine charges, we misread cues and misinterpret behavior, sometimes with disastrous results. Conversely, when communication between dog and keeper is clear and based on kindness and a willingness to see things through a dog鈥檚 eyes, the payoff for both dog and owner is tremendous. When respect and care are brought together, we come to know the inalienable goodness in a dog鈥檚 soul.<br /><br />As the founder of Canine Assistants, Arnold has implemented and advanced a methodology鈥擟hoice Teaching鈥攖hat pairs scientific and behavioral knowledge about dogs with gentle incentive and encouragement to extraordinary effect. But she does not consider herself a dog trainer; rather, she sees herself as a relationship expert who improves the connection between humans and dogs and in the process betters the quality of life for both. <i>In a Dog鈥檚 Heart</i> offers Arnold鈥檚 offers her best practices and useful tips that range over a dog鈥檚 whole life, including: <br />聽<br />鈥?how to choose the puppy that鈥檚 destined for you from a bustling litter and what you need to have on hand before you bring that puppy home; <br />鈥?what to stock in your doggie first-aid kit;<br />鈥?how to keep your pet safe from dangers at home and in the outside world;<br />鈥?the challenges and rewards of adopting an older dog;<br />鈥?how to help your dog overcome anxious behavior, from separation anxiety to thunderstorm phobia;<br />鈥?when to recognize that it鈥檚 time to let go.<br />聽<br />As in her bestselling first book, <i>Through a Dog鈥檚 Eyes, </i>Arnold illustrates what she鈥檚 learned through captivating and moving stories drawn from her experience. We learn about Grace, a black Lab who was rescued after she was thrown from a truck and delivered to Canine Assistants emaciated, dehydrated, and with a broken pelvis. As Grace recovered she displayed an usual gift for scent detection and now spends her days sniffing out bombs on the Israeli border. We meet Casper, a Lab-golden mix who works full-time at Scottish Rite Children鈥檚 Hospital in Atlanta, a best friend to kids undergoing cancer treatment, and a buddy ready to offer comfort as needed to the doctors on staff. We also discover the myriad ways in which dogs improve our lives鈥攁nd what they need and deserve from us in return.

鈥淏irds are my passion,鈥?says Joanna Burger, 鈥渂ut parrots are my weakness.鈥? Fifteen years ago, when se adopted a neglected, orphaned thirty-six year old parrot named Tiko, she entered on of the most complex relationships of her life.<br /><br />Sullen and hostile when he entered Dr. Burger鈥檚 home, Tiko gradually warmed as she carefully persuaded him of her good intentions. Eventually he courted her, building nests inside household furniture during mating season and trying to coax her into them. He nursed her vigilantly through a bout with Lyme disease, regularly preening each strand of hair on the pillow as she slept. For a while he even fought her husband for her attentions, but eventually theirs became a relationship of deep mutual trust.<br /><br /><b>The Parrot Who Owns Me</b> is also the story of the science of birds, and of parrots in particular (America鈥檚 third most commonly owned pet, after cats and dogs). Woven into the narrative are insights and fascinating revelations from Joanna Burger鈥檚 work 鈥?not only about parrots, but about what it means to be human.<br /><br />By turns delightful, hilarious, touching, and enlightening, <b>The Parrot Who Owns Me</b> introduces us to an unforgettable bird and his human companion, whose friendships tells us much about ourselves.<br />

<b>鈥淟ively and fascinating... The reader comes away cheered,聽better informed, and with a new and deeper appreciation for our amazing canine companions and their enormous capacity for love.鈥濃€擟at Warren,聽<i>New York Times</i>聽best-selling author of <i>What the Dog Knows</i>聽</b><br /><br /><b>Does your dog love you?</b><br /> Every dog lover knows the feeling. The nuzzle of a dog鈥檚 nose, the warmth of them lying at our feet, even their whining when they want to get up on the bed. It really seems like our dogs love us, too. But for years, scientists have resisted that conclusion, warning against anthropomorphizing our pets. Enter Clive Wynne, a pioneering canine behaviorist whose research is helping to usher in a new era: one in which love, not intelligence or submissiveness, is at the heart of the human-canine relationship. Drawing on cutting鈥慹dge studies from his lab and others around the world, Wynne shows that affection is the very essence of dogs, from their faces and tails to their brains, hormones, even DNA. This scientific revolution is revealing more about dogs鈥?unique origins, behavior, needs, and hidden depths than we ever imagined possible.<br /><br /> A humane, illuminating book, <i>Dog Is Love</i> is essential reading for anyone who has ever loved a dog鈥攁nd experienced the wonder of being loved back.
