Dogs are perhaps our most popular pets, and certainly one of the best-loved of all animals. They are not only humanity’s best friend, they are also its oldest: burial sites dating back 12,000 years indicate that dogs moved alongside prehistoric peoples before, during and after both species settled the world. The story of the canine has been fundamentally entwined with that of humanity since the earliest times, and this ancient and fascinating story is told in Susan McHugh’s Dog. This book unravels the debate about whether dogs are descended from wolves, and moves on to deal with canines in mythology, religion and health, dog cults in ancient and medieval civilizations as disparate as Alaska, Greece, Peru and Persia, and traces correspondences between the histories of dogs in the Far East, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Dog also examines the relatively recent phenomenon of dog breeding and the invention of species, as well as the canine’s role in science fact and fiction; from Laika, the first astronaut, and Pavlov’s famous conditioned dogs, through to science fiction novels and cult films such as A Boy and his Dog. Susan McHugh shows how dogs today contribute to human lives in a huge number of ways, not only as pets and guide dogs but also as sources of food in Asia, entertainment workers, and scientific and religious objects. Dog reveals how we have shaped these animals over the millennia, and in turn, how dogs have shaped us.

Wie fühlt es sich an, eine Kuh zu sein? Ziemlich ähnlich wie ein Mensch. Davon ist Rosamund Young, britische Ökobäuerin der ersten Stunde, überzeugt: Kühe haben Gefühle und gehen persönliche Beziehungen ein. Sie sprechen miteinander, geben ihre Weisheit weiter, kümmern sich um den Nachwuchs, spielen Verstecken, sind beleidigt, verärgert, traurig oder aufgekratzt. Young, die auf ihrer Farm Kite‘s Nest in den Cotswolds im Herzen Englands seit vielen Jahren biologische Landwirtschaft betreibt, hat zu ihren Kühen ein ganz besonderes Verhältnis. »Ich bin keine Schriftstellerin, ich bin Ghostwriter für meine Kühe«, sagt sie. Youngs ebenso warmherziges wie charmantes Plädoyer für einen Umgang mit den Tieren auf Augenhöhe verändert unseren Blick und lässt uns staunen. »Niemand, der dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird Kühe so sehen wie zuvor.« The Guardian »Das Tierbuch des Jahres 2018.« Literaturspiegel »Dieses Buch wird Ihren Blick auf die Welt verändern.« Alan Bennett Sunday-Times-Bestseller, Times Book of the Year Die bejubelte Wiederentdeckung eines Klassikers: über 100.000 verkaufte Exemplare allein in England. Heiß umkämpfter Titel: In über 25 Länder verkauft! Wunderschön gestaltet mit zahlreichen ganzseitigen Illustrationen. »Warmherzig, bewegend und absolut lesenswert.« Lydia Davis »Ein perfektes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse.« Sunday Telegraph

`This new book by Jacky Turner shakes the foundations of animal breeding on the grounds that too often it brings consequences that are unforeseen, unjustified or just plain unfair. Her case is built on a persuasive mixture of compassion, good writing and hard evidence. It needed to be said, it is said well and it concerns us all.' Professor John Webster, University of Bristol, UK `This book should appeal to a broad audience of informed members of the public, welfare scientists, animal industrialists and others associated with animal management.' Professor Clive Phillips, Foundation Chair of Animal Welfare, University of Queensland, Australia `This important book looks at some of the most urgent animal welfare issues facing global animal production over the coming decades.' Philip Lymbery, Chief Executive, Compassion in World Farming The determination of when, how, how often and with whom an animal breeds is moving rapidly away from evolutionary pressures and towards human purposes. These purposes include the breeding of around 50 billion mammals and birds for food production annually, pedigree dogs and cats, racing dogs and horses, and specialized laboratory animal strains, as well as the use of reproductive science to conserve endangered species or breeds and to limit unwanted populations of pests and non-native species. But the ethics and sustainability of this takeover of animals' reproductive lives have been insufficiently examined by either professionals or the public. This book discusses the methods, the motivations and the consequences of human intervention in animal breeding in terms of animal health, behaviour and well-being. It explores where we are now and the choices ahead, and looks to a future where we have more respect for animals as sentient beings and where we could loosen the reins of reproductive control.

The Polish Lowland Sheepdog, known in its homeland as the Polski Owczarek Nizinny, ranks as one of the world’s most irresistible shaggy dogs. The PON (named for the acronym of its Polish name) is in fact a talented, biddable herding dog whose skills and tousled cuteness continue to “pen” new admirers in every dog-loving country of the world. The PON’s delightful personality shines in his ever-present smile and clever ways. For an owner seeking a smart, entertaining and cheery canine companion, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog promises to brighten your world day in and day out. The author of this volume, PON authority and American breed pioneer Elizabeth Augustowski, was honored by the Polish Kennel Club for her contributions to the breed. This new full-color book offers a concise history of the breed in both Europe and America and paints a colorful portrait of the breed’s characteristics through anecdotes and photographs. The author discusses the breed standard and how to evaluate a PON, information useful for newcomers selecting a puppy or experienced breeders and judges. This Special Rare-Breed Edition also offers reliable information on PON puppy care, house-training and basic obedience, helping readers better understand this lively, lovable herding dog. An authoritative, up-to-date chapter on canine healthcare, written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman, completes the package, making this volume both comprehensive and indispensable.

Dogs are now arguably the most popular companion animals, and the general wellbeing of the family pet is of paramount importance to many people.

Veterinary Notes for Dog Owners provides a detailed, authoritative and easily understood text for the professional breeder and pet owner alike, as well as for veterinary surgeons and nurses looking for clear, up-to-the minute explanations of sometimes complex issues. Twenty authors, all experts in their particular fields, have come together under the astute editorial guidance of leading veterinary surgeon Trevor Turner BVetMed, MRCVS, to cover all aspects of canine health care and management. There are detailed sections on general and inherited disease, the organ systems and infectious and parasitic diseases; on nutrition and feeding; on first aid, poisoning, and nursing the sick dog; canine dentistry and hernias; on behavior and behavioral problems. Invaluable advice on choosing a dog and building kennels is included as well as such topics as understanding pet insurance. This book is destined to become the standard work on canine health care and management, the essential manual for anybody who takes a serious interest in the welfare of dogs.
