Comportement du chien
Mieux comprendre et analyser les comportements du chien domestique à la lumière des connaissances scientifiques les plus récentes, est essentiel pour intégrer intelligemment cet animal à la vie des hommes. C'est ce que tente de démontrer et d'expliciter cet ouvrage en s'appuyant sur les dernières avancées scientifiques en matière d'éthologie canine. Dans une première partie, les modalités de développement du comportement canin sont rappelées, ainsi que les capacités de communication qui font de cette espèce, une espèce sociale toute particulière. La deuxième partie s'intéresse à ce qu'a de spécifique la relation qui s'établit très tôt entre le chien et l'homme, en soulignant les conséquences pratiques qui en découlent. La troisième et dernière partie est constituée de fiches pratiques de recommandations (ou fiches conseil) qui présentent de façon synthétique certaines spécificités du comportement canin ; elles pourront servir au praticien de fiche mémo, mais il pourra aussi, à loisir, les remettre au propriétaire comme fiches conseil. L'auteur met ainsi à la portée du vétérinaire un ensemble de connaissances éthologiques, organisées sous forme d'un manuel pratique. La lecture de cet ouvrage aidera le praticien à appréhender au mieux son rôle de conseil et de prévention dans le cadre des problématiques de comportement chez le chien.

Stress and Pheromonatherapy in Small Animal Clinical Behaviour
Stress and Pheromonatherapy in Small Animal Clinical Behaviour is about how stress impacts on animal behaviour and welfare and what we can do about it, especially by using chemical signals more effectively. This readily accessible text starts from first principles and is useful to both academics and practitioners alike. It offers a framework for understanding how pheromonatherapy can be used to encourage desirable behaviour in dogs and cats and also a fresh approach to understanding the nature of clinical animal behaviour problems. The authors have pioneered the use of pheromone therapy within the field of clinical animal behaviour. As the culmination of many years of research and experience, they offer sound evidence-based advice on how and when pheromones can be used most effectively. The first part of the book deals with some fundamental concepts, focusing on the key concepts of stress, communication and perception. It then provides a framework for the evaluation of problem behaviour to allow consideration of the possible role or not of pheromonatherapy. Part 2 covers the application of these concepts to a range of specific situations, concentrating on conditions in which there has been most research to support the efficacy of pheromonatherapy. Suitable for veterinarians in small animal practice, students of clinical animal behaviour, veterinary nurses and technicians, as well as specialists and researchers in animal behaviour therapy.
Blackwell s Five Minute Veterinary Consult Clinical Companion
Pet behavior problems are a leading cause of pet abandonment, relinquishment, abuse and neglect. As a reliable and educated source, veterinarians must help guide their clients in the right direction. Blackwell's Five-Minute Veterinary Consult Clinical Companion: Canine and Feline Behavior facilitates veterinarians in counseling clients and treating small animal behavior problems. As part of the popular Blackwell’s Five-Minute Veterinary Consult series, this unique manual is designed as a quick reference for veterinarians and students alike. Information is readily available in a practical and easy-to-use format, with topics organized alphabetically for easy reference. Coverage includes typical problem behaviors in dogs and cats, such as various types of aggression, anxiety, fear, soiling and marking, vocalizing, and destructive behaviors. Appendices provide additional resources on psychopharmacology, learning and behavior modification, and client handouts, while an accompanying CD-ROM offers electronic versions of handouts for easy use.
BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Behavioural Medicine
The classic BSAVA Manuals of Canine Behaviour and Feline Behaviour were ahead of their time in the appreciation of the importance of small animal behaviour and its problems and treatment. This completely new Manual builds on their success. Written primarily for the veterinary surgeon in general practice, by veterinarians working in the fields of behaviour in different countries, the BSAVA Manual of Clinical and Feline Behavioural Medicine offers both sound scientific information and practical easy-to-follow advice. The book will also appeal to those who already have a special interest in behaviour problems. Following a consideration of the place of behavioural medicine within the practice setting, the normal behaviours of cats and dogs are described. Some more theoretical chapters are included, to give a background understanding of learning theory, the physiology of fear, and types of aggression. But the major focus of the Manual is on the practical approach to history taking, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, and follow-up of the range of behavioural problems encountered in dogs and cats. Colour photographs and specially commissioned drawings illustrate important features such as body postures, and tables throughout help the reader to access important information quickly. In the last 10-15 years the veterinary professional has increasingly appreciated the wider importance of animal behaviour and psychological well-being. Behavioural problems can disrupt the pet=owner relationship to the point of breaking, and many pets are re-homes, abandoned or euthanased as a result. Safeguarding the pet-owner relationship and assisting owners in gaining a deeper understanding of their companion animals is an integral part of modern veterinary practice. The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Behavioural Medicine will enable you to cater for this need.

What Is a Dog
Of the world’s dogs, less than two hundred million are pets, living with humans who provide food, shelter, squeaky toys, and fashionable sweaters. But roaming the planet are four times as many dogs who are their own masters—neighborhood dogs, dump dogs, mountain dogs. They are dogs, not companions, and these dogs, like pigeons or squirrels, are highly adapted scavengers who have evolved to fit particular niches in the vicinity of humans. In What Is a Dog? experts on dog behavior Raymond and Lorna Coppinger present an eye-opening analysis of the evolution and adaptations of these unleashed dogs and what they can reveal about the species as a whole. Exploring the natural history of these animals, the Coppingers explain how the village dogs of Vietnam, India, Africa, and Mexico are strikingly similar. These feral dogs, argue the Coppingers, are in fact the truly archetypal dogs, nearly uniform in size and shape and incredibly self-sufficient. Drawing on nearly five decades of research, they show how dogs actually domesticated themselves in order to become such efficient scavengers of human refuse. The Coppingers also examine the behavioral characteristics that enable dogs to live successfully and to reproduce, unconstrained by humans, in environments that we ordinarily do not think of as dog friendly. Providing a fascinating exploration of what it actually means—genetically and behaviorally—to be a dog, What Is a Dog? will undoubtedly change the way any beagle or bulldog owner will reflect on their four-legged friend.
My Animal My Self
In this groundbreaking book, animal communicator Marta Williams brings into focus an unexamined dynamic in our relationships with our animals: the idea that our animals are often our mirrors. Deeply and inextricably connected to us on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels, they can pick up and reflect back to us the issues and events of our lives. Through stories, exercises, and an extensive questionnaire, you will gain unique insight into the healing and teaching roles of your companion animals, both past and current, and the profound gifts they offer.
Gentle Dog Training
Some training methods work with some dogs, Michel Hasbrouck's work with all dogs. Training dogs through punishment and discipline fails to understand that dogs want to appreciated and loved. Adopt the right attitude of praise and you will find that they respond better. However, this also entails training the human as much as the dog, become a dog leader rather than an owner. Michel Hasbrouck's methods suit every dog, from puppies to older animals, and every owner. The dog, more than any other animal, has an engaging personality and communicates most easily with humans. The dog is sensitive and aware of subtle changes in emotion so it is important to train it with a philosophy of trust, where the relationship between dog and master becomes unique.
