This book brilliantly explains the scientific principles of positive reinforcement training in every day language. --Erich Klinghammer, PhD Director of Wolf Park. If you are looking for a step-by-step guide to help explain the use of positive reinforcement in training and living with your canine friend, then this is the book for you. Trainer and educator Beth Duman takes you by the hand and guides you through the entire process from the very start. (Trainers - This might be a good book to have your students take home for homework.) Beth humbly uses her experiences with her own rescue dog, Charlie Darwin (hence the title), to illustrate the successes and pitfalls of training and learning to live happily together. Brilliant and well written! Most dog training books are so dry, and one struggles to go from lesson to lesson. Ms. Duman has written a book that is full of humor and pathos, as he takes you through the step by step training process with a little rescue dog who evolved into Charles Darwin. Along the way, she shares stories about her own dogs, and other dogs, who have benefited from these positive training methods. This book holds your interest, page by page, and makes you eager to hep your own dog become the best that he or she can be, which foremost, is your best friend.---Therri O'Dea.

Don't put the dog before the cart...until he is trained! Many people love the idea of being able to hitch their dogs to a cart and have them pull the kids around the yard or in a parade. Or they have a breed of dog that has been bred to work as a draft dog and are interested in participating in competitions held by clubs around the country that test both dog and handler's skill pulling a cart. While this may seem simple, training a dog to willingly and safely do the work to pull a cart actually involves a lot of learning and effort on the part of both the dog and the handler. In this new book, author Laura Waldbaum will teach you what you and your dog need to know to help develop a "happy draft dog."

What reviewers are saying...

“There aren't many books out there with 1,000 photos of dogs (and also wolves) expressing themselves. You'll see signs of mild stress, which range from a paw lift to lip licking to blinking. A yawn may simply mean a dog is tired, or indicate stress. Stretching can also be a sign of stress. Dogs are constantly communicating non-verbally. This book is a must for anyone truly interested in translating what canines are saying.” Steve Dale

“Dog and canine lovers are in for a treat if they pick up "Canine Behavior: A Photo Illustrated Handbook". Featuring one thousand photos covering everything from common dogs to wolves, foxes, and coyotes, "Canine Behavior" is complete and comprehensive in its coverage of canine species. Alongside the black and white photography are examinations of canine behavior with tips for dog owners peppered throughout. "Canine Behavior: A Photo Illustrated Handbook" is a must have for any dog person and for community library pets/wildlife collections.” James A. Cox
