Remember Me? is an award-winning guidebook for owners of dogs who are losing their mental faculties as they age, and the story of a dog and owner who retained their bond through this most difficult situation. 

If you have an aging dog, Remember Me? will give you the information you need to weather the difficult condition and give your dog the most fulfilling life possible. 

In Remember Me, you will learn: 

• About the symptoms of canine cognitive dysfunction, medications and other interventions that are showing promise in treating the condition; 
• How to adapt your home and habits to keep your dog safe; 
• The many products available to solve the problems of senior dogs; 
• How to make things easier on yourself, physically and emotionally; and 
• The complex question of euthanasia and how to make your own decision about it. 

The story of author Eileen Anderson's small terrier Cricket, who developed dementia, is threaded through the book. As Cricket's dementia worsened she paced, she circled, she stood in corners, she forgot what she was doing, and at times she lost and found her owner repeatedly. For the last weeks of her life she even forgot how to drink water. As Cricket's condition deteriorated and needs changed, Anderson learned about the disease and developed methods to care for her dog. 

She shares these methods in Remember Me? and her calm, conversational tone is soothing to dog owners who are suffering--sometimes more than their dogs.

Remember Me? won the 2016 Maxwell Award from the Dog Writers Association of America for a book on health, behavior, or general care.

Here’s a Dog Fancy book for dog owners who work more hours than they’d like to…and for dog owners who own super-active dogs without real jobs to do (like herding sheep or retrieving ducks for ten hours a day). Boredom swiftly sets in on the domestic canine, and what usually follows is destructive, bad behavior that drives owners bonkers. Before you and your dog go bonkers together, Boredom Busters for Dogs holds forty great solutions to enriching your pet’s world in meaningful, fun ways. Author Nikki Moustaki has collected a toy box full of great games, interactive toys, and pawsitively stimulating puzzles to keep even suburban Border Collie happy and out of mischief. The book presents enrichment ideas categorized by solo activities, interactive social exercises, and ways to enhance the dog’s environment by offering variations or his own special places to play. In the chapter “Solo Enrichment,” the author utilizes every dog’s favorite things—food and toys—to motivate him to play and discover treats on his own. In “Social Enrichment,” the old adage that “two dogs are better than one” is the common denominator for the games and activities used to keep canine pals occupied. “Environmental Enrichment” gives owners ideas how to provide their dogs with places they can call their own, including digging pits, wading pools, tire swings, and more. Activities for dog and owner are the topic of “Variance Enrichment,” listing a dozen enjoyable day trips and outings, from hiking and cruising around time to doggy dancing and agility trials.

Not only does training your dog new tricks give you something to show-off at parties, but it also keeps your dog engaged and moving, and helps you become closer and more in-tune with your pet. And who better to learn from than the pros? Babette Haggerty has trained Jack Nicklaus' Golden Retriever to bark the number of his major tournament wins on command, Curt Gowdy's Rottweiler to say, "Go Reds" and Jimmy Buffett's Maltese to dance on cue to "Margaritaville".

In The Best Dog Tricks on the Planet, she offers up more than 100 of her best dog tricks, many of them featured by her famous father, Captain Haggerty, on David Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks. Tricks include:

- Bring Me the Ringing Phone
- Wipe Your FeetWeave Poles
- Open the Door
- Balance an Egg on Your Nose
- Strum a Guitar

Step-by-step photos, more than 500 of them, pack the pages showing you the tricks to the tricks. In no time your dog will not only bring in the paper, play dead and roll over but also count objects, jump into your arms, crawl like a soldier and take a bow.

Babette was voted "Palm Beach's Favorite Dog Trainer." She has been featured on television and radio, including Animal Planet, Martha Stewart's "Living Radio" and most recently, the E! reality series, Married to Jonas. She has also published several articles in Dogs USA and Dog World magazines.

In Cesar’s Way, Cesar Millan—nationally recognized dog expert and star of National Geographic Channel’s hit show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan—helps you see the world through the eyes of your dog so you can finally eliminate problem behaviors.

From his appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show to his roster of celebrity clients to his reality television series, Cesar Millan is America’s most sought-after dog-behavior expert. But Cesar is not a trainer in the traditional sense—his expertise lies in his unique ability to comprehend dog psychology. Tracing his own amazing journey from a clay-walled farm in Mexico to the celebrity palaces of Los Angeles, Cesar recounts how he learned what makes dogs tick. In Cesar’s Way, he shares this wisdom, laying the groundwork for you to have stronger, more satisfying relationships with your canine companions.

Cesar’s formula for a contented and balanced dog seems impossibly simple: exercise, discipline, and affection, in that order. Taking readers through the basics of dog psychology and behavior, Cesar shares the inside details of some of his most fascinating cases, using them to illustrate how common behavior issues develop and, more important, how they can be corrected. You'll learn:

• What your dog really needs may not be what you’re giving him
• Why a dog’s natural pack instincts are the key to your happy relationship
• How to relate to your dog on a canine level
• There are no “problem breeds,” just problem owners
• How to choose a dog who’s right for you and your family
• The difference between discipline and punishment
• And much more!

Filled with fascinating anecdotes about Cesar’s longtime clients, and including forewords by the president of the International Association of Canine Professionals and Jada Pinkett Smith, this is the only book you’ll need to forge a stronger, more rewarding connection with your four-legged companion.

As a Navy SEAL during a combat deployment in Iraq, Mike Ritland saw a military working dog in action and instantly knew he'd found his true calling. Ritland started his own company training and supplying dogs for the SEAL teams, U.S. Government, and Department of Defense. He knew that fewer than 1 percent of all working dogs had what it takes to contribute to the success of our nation's elite combat units, and began searching the globe for animals who fit this specific profile. These specialized canines had to pass rigorous selection tests before their serious training could begin.

The results were a revelation: highly trained working dogs capable of handling both detection and apprehension work in the most extreme environments and the tensest of battlefield conditions. Though fiercely aggressive and athletic, these dogs develop a close bond with the handlers they work side by side with and the other team members. Truly integrating themselves into their units, these K9 warriors are much like their human counterparts—unwavering in their devotion to duty, strong enough and tough enough to take it to the enemy through pain, injury, or fear.

For the first time ever, the New York Times bestseller Trident K9 Warriors gives readers an inside look at these elite canines—who they are, how they are trained, and the extreme missions they undertake saving countless lives, asking for little in the way of reward. From detecting explosives to eliminating the bad guys, these powerful dogs are also some of the smartest and most highly skilled working animals on the planet.
