Il cane (Canis familiaris) è certamente l’animale domestico più diffuso e riveste un ruolo molto particolare nell’ambito della società umana. Sono quasi 400 le razze canine riconosciute: un universo sterminato, dunque, popolato da animali accomunati nell’origine zoologica ma tutti diversi fra loro per caratteristiche morfologiche, comportamenti e attitudini. Frutto di selezioni in parte naturali in parte favorite dall’uomo per esaltare alcune delle loro caratteristiche, le singole razze si sono in genere diffuse e affermate in ogni parte del mondo. Questa guida si propone di far conoscere il maggior numero possibile di razze e di orientare il lettore nella scelta di una di esse, prendendo in considerazione tutte quelle che hanno una diffusione internazionale, senza trascurare quelle che tradizionalmente rappresentano la cultura cinofila di determinate aree geografiche.
A renowned dog trainer gives you the positive training tools you need to share a lifetime of fun, companionship, and respect with your dog. Plus, you'll get: information on the importance of observing, understanding, and reacting appropriately to your dog's body language; instructions on how to phase out the use of a clicker and treats to introduce more advanced training concepts; a diary to track progress; suggestions for treats your dog will respond to; and a glossary of training terms.
Author: Ruth Harrison
First published in 1964, Ruth Harrison's book Animal Machines had a profound and lasting impact on world agriculture, public opinion and the quality of life of millions of farmed animals. Concerned with welfare standards at a time when animal production was increasing in scale and mechanization, Ruth Harrison set about investigating the situation in a fair and even-handed way. Reporting her findings in this book, Harrison alerted the public to the undeniable suffering of calves living in veal crates and birds in battery cages. Written at the beginning of the intensive farming movement, which promised progress but in reality worsened conditions for domesticated animals, Animal Machines provides a fascinating insight into the system we are living with today and must continue with as the global population increases. Harrison's work brought about legal reforms, a greater understanding of farm conditions for animals and increased public awareness. Animal Machines is reprinted here in its entirety, accompanied by new chapters by world-renowned experts in animal welfare discussing the legacy and impact of Animal Machines 50 years on.
