What if you could significantly improve your physical and mental health by taking a simple step that’s easy, rewarding, and fun? Dr. Milena Penkowa says you can do that and more by owning a dog – and yet people continue to invest time and money in costly treatments before even considering a furry friend. Dogs can stave off diseases and certain cancers, erase pain, and ease anxiety, depression, allergies, diabetes, and cardiovascular disorders. Over the long term, they can also reduce the burden of dementia, epilepsy, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and autism. This guidebook explains the scientifically proven benefits of dogs, and you’ll learn how dogs: • change the human brain so it reacts and thinks differently; • improve the immune system to make you more resilient than dog deprived individuals; • boost and invigorate the human spirit and secure happiness; • promote a life of longevity and healthiness. Stop looking for fancy remedies to physical and mental problems, and start looking for a dog wagging its tail. Tap into a natural method to survive and thrive by learning about the fascinating connections between Dogs & Human Health.

Pointers and setters, stars of research on grouse, ptarmigan and other game

Author: Adam Watson

Publisher: Paragon Publishing

ISBN: 1782220763

Category: Pets

Page: 246

View: 2523

In this book, the author looks back at 56 years of personal experiences with his own pointers and setters, and those of members of the research team that he came later to lead. They studied the population biology, territorial behaviour, habitats and environment of red grouse and ptarmigan in Scotland. The joint achievements of men and dogs elicited a fresh understanding of populations and behaviour of animals in general, drawing international attention and recognition to the human workers. It is time to sing for recognition of the dogs, because the human achievements would have been immeasurably less had the faithful dogs not joined them to form a crucial inspirational partnership. The author tells of that partnership, its development and fruition. The book is mainly the author’s personal account, describing how the human workers gradually gained insight and experience that made the partnership ever more effective. Because the author’s dogs lived with him and his family, and the others in the team who had dogs usually kept them at home, part of the book tells of these relationships. Personal anecdotes and humorous events enliven the text. The author knew some other workers who used dogs to aid their research on wild animals, and visited them in Canada, USA, and Norway. Also he was in close touch with other colleagues who used dogs for wildlife research in France and northern Italy. A valuable international aspect to the book has been contributed by a few of these colleagues. Numerous photographs illustrate the text, showing dogs and men in fieldwork together and apart, as well as portraits of both. Hunters, shooters, researchers and dog enthusiasts in general will enjoy and appreciate this book

Trainers, behaviorists, and big businesses have embraced the liberal use of positive techniques, philosophies and equipment for decades. Accompanying this is the buzz about leadership, alpha statuses, along with advice on what we should or shouldn’t feed our dogs, when to feed them, and how much to feed them. What if it is as simple as ABC and 123—breathing, eating, playing and smiling? Awareness Centered Training (ACT) gives us permission to • joyfully and easily train (JET) our dogs without fear of right or wrong • mindfully shape natural behaviors with SAM (socialization and manners) • quickly integrate training for a few minutes each day, playing Doggy Diner • reduce sensory overload with “ahha!” moments of peace and stillness • connect using body language, breathing, and the magic of your smile • empower yourself and your dog with skills you can use anywhere • creatively balance energy while enhancing well-being • let go of what doesn’t matter and go with the flow (wolf ) • change life for the better with dogs as translators for learning and healing While you train with awareness, unhealthy patterns in your life can begin to vanish. This is not because of a book, social media, or life doing something to you. It is because you and your dog are doing something different together. Enjoy the journey.
