Tutto quello che si deve sapere sui BORDER COLLIE: per incontrarli, conoscerli e per vivere felicemente insieme con loro. Questa collana - a cura di Nicoletta Salvatori - nasce dal successo dell’eBook «A qualcuno piace cane», firmato sempre da Giancarlo Nazari ed edito da Simonelli. Brevi, succosi, molto pratici e divertenti, questi veloci eBook indagano l'universo canino razza per razza, cercando di delineare quelle caratteristiche comportamentali o caratteriali che distinguono i nostri amici quattrozampe rendendo più semplice sia sceglierli sia conoscerli meglio se sono già "di famiglia". eBook dopo eBook, la collana insegna ai proprietari a gestire al meglio l’amato quattrozampe, raccontando - spesso anche attraverso la diretta esperienza dell’autore - cosa significhi scegliere, vivere, educare cani di diverse razze, come se ne possano vincere le resistenze, come guadagnarsi la loro amicizia e, in molti casi, anche come farci educare da loro.

Chaser has a way with words. She knows over a thousand of them—more than any other animal of any species except humans. In addition to common nouns like house, ball, and tree, she has memorised the names of more than one thousand toys and can retrieve any of them on command. Based on that learning, she and her owner and trainer, retired psychologist John Pilley, have moved on to further impressive feats, demonstrating her ability to understand sentences with multiple elements of grammar and to learn new behaviours by imitation. John’s ingenuity and tenacity as a researcher are as impressive as Chaser’s accomplishments. His groundbreaking approach has opened the door to a new understanding of animal intelligence, one that requires us to reconsider what actually goes on in a dog’s mind. Chaser’s achievements reveal her use of deductive reasoning and complex problem-solving skills to address novel challenges. Yet astonishingly, Chaser isn’t unique. John’s training methods can be adopted by any dog lover. Through the poignant story of how he trained Chaser, raised her as a member of the Pilley family, and proved her abilities to the scientific community, he reveals the positive impact of incorporating learning into play and more effectively channeling a dog’s natural drives. John’s work with Chaser offers a fresh perspective on what’s possible in the relationship between a dog and a human. His story points us toward a new way of relating to our canine companions that takes into account our evolving understanding of the way animals and humans learn.

L'ouvrage s'adresse aux éleveurs confrontés aux problèmes de manutention et de contention de troupeaux. Il intéresse aussi un large panel d'utilisateurs ruraux ou citadins, employant déjà l'animal ou souhaitant en savoir plus. Il permet de comprendre ce chien exceptionnel qu'est le Border Collie, en présentant et en analysant ses capacités spécifiques. Le lecteur y puisera une aide précieuse pour élever et éduquer son compagnon de labeur ou de loisirs, afin qu'il exprime au mieux son potentiel génétique et aborde le travail auquel il est destiné avec le maximum d'efficacité. Il y trouvera également une ouverture à la sélection par le rappel de quelques principes et la présentation des lignées et origines s'étant illustrées dans les différentes disciplines. Chien de berger le plus connu et le plus utilisé par les professionnels, le Border Collie, originaire de Grande-Bretagne, s'est adapté partout dans le monde aux différentes espèces et aux types d'élevage en devenant le partenaire indispensable de nombreux éleveurs. Son introduction en France dans les années soixante a totalement changé et modernisé la perception du chien comme outil de travail sur les exploitations agricoles où sa présence est synonyme de gain de temps et de moindre stress pour les animaux. Les exceptionnelles qualités du Border, que l'on ne retrouve dans aucune autre race, sont dues à une sélection continue sur les aptitudes au troupeau. Elles lui ont permis de s'imposer également dans d'autres disciplines où il suscite un véritable engouement.
