Throwing a ball for a game of chase is an enjoyable and rewarding experience for many owners and their dogs. For other owners canine chase behaviour turns into a nightmare when their dog chases cyclists, cars or sheep. When their dogs choose what to chase it can compromise owners financially, cause the target severe injury or even death, and threaten the life of the dog. A good trainer or behaviour counsellor needs to be able to address inappropriate predatory chase behaviour swiftly and effectively. This book looks at the reasons for the problem, the more effective solutions and how to alter the behaviour.

Do you wish your dog would listen to you on walks, rather than running after squirrels? Tired of getting left in the dust if a cat shows up nearby? Concerned that your dog's prey drive is coming between the two of you? Conventional training protocols stifle your dog's natural predatory behaviours through punishing or constantly forcing them to return. These restrictive protocols work against your dog's nature and against what they want most: to go for a hunt! Predation is an inner need that makes your dog happy. Suppressing those natural urges is like putting an airtight lid on a boiling pot. Eventually, that pressure needs to escape, and without a proper outlet, it's probably going to get messy. Wouldn't you rather use your dog's predation motivation to improve your training and even grow your relationship with your dog? Predation Substitute Training (PST) is a motivation-based and need-oriented training program, designed to stop uncontrolled predatory chasing and to provide safe outlets for your dog's natural drive. Instead of making discipline the nagging factor that spoils the fun, this training system will help you grow as a team and go hunting together! In this training program, you'll learn: -What is predation? -Why does your dog love to hunt? -Why is predatory behaviour so hard to interrupt? To stop your dog's predatory chasing and see real-life results, just follow the step-by-step instructions: -Prevention: Structure your walks to set your dog up for success -Predation Substitute Tools: Help your dog control their urge to chase in a healthy way. -Predation Substitute Games: Discover new ways to express predatory energy in a safe, controlled environment -Safety net: Build a strong "emergency cue" to immediately interrupt predatory chasing. Is hunting your dog's favourite hobby? Don't spoil the fun - go hunting together!

This is a major revision and redesign of a classic work in the field of veterinary medicine first published by Cornell University Press in 1933. For the Twelfth Edition of Dukes' Physiology of Domestic Animals, William O. Reece has overseen the writing of an essentially new book that retains what was best about its predecessors. Long a standard text for veterinary practitioners and other professionals who seek to refresh their knowledge of particular subjects, Dukes' Physiology of Domestic Animals will now appeal to a new generation of students of veterinary medicine and animal science and to biomedical researchers. Section editors known for their scientific expertise and teaching skill oversaw the book's six main sections: The Body Fluids and Blood; Renal and Respiratory Function and Acid-Base Balance; The Cardiovascular System; Digestion, Absorption, and Metabolism; Endocrinology, Reproduction, and Lactation; and Nervous System, Special Senses, Muscle, and Temperature Regulation. This edition includes a complete listing of each chapter's contents immediately after the chapter head, study questions that highlight the major concepts of each major subsection, self-evaluation exercises at the end of the chapters, suggestions for further reading, and a comprehensive index.
