WDW NEWS & Canine Link of the Week
from WorkingDogWeb.com
February 10, 2005

http://www.WorkingDogWeb.com/WDWNews-Online.htm

~~~~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~~~~~

Valentine's Day reminds us not only to love our human family and friends, but also our canine companions.  Many books have been written in recent years on the special bond between people and dogs, including Jon Katz's  The New Work of Dogs: Tending to Life, Love, and Family.    It is filled with insightful stories
of what dogs and people mean to each other. 

He is also the author of the The Dogs of Bedlam Farm and  A Dog Year: Twelve Months, Four Dogs and Me, chronicling his life with active border collies.

This time of year also reminds us of a favorite Web site we enjoy recommending to kids and grown-ups alike.  While this site,  How to Love Your Dog, is called a kid's guide to dog care, anyone can enjoy it and learn about dogs.  Check out youngster's answers to the question of the month: Why does your dog love you?

New for all our readers who love the Northern breeds including sled dogs such as the Siberian Husky is our Sled Dog Training Guide with links to many of the best resources on training and conditioning sled dogs for competion.  Also fully updated for 2005 are the WDW Guide to the Yukon Quest and the Guide to the Iditarod.   The Quest starts on February 13 and the Iditarod starts March 5.

Our TalkDogs site continues to be active -- with one person currently asking if anyone can help explain why her Golden Retriever/Labrador cross is only the size of a Border collie, while another asks where he can obtain an assistance dog.  Can any of you help?  Thanks to the generous readers who helped in the past.  Feel free to add questions. 
Start here:
http://www.workingdogweb.com/TalkDogs.htm

We're sorry about the "cover up" ad over some forum text, but the space is free, many of you have enjoyed the forum and no one has complained.  Thanks for your patience!

Each issue of WDW News online is posted online before we send it by email. You can click through to read the Web version with color and pictures if you prefer.

Moe among Angels on a Leash
WESTMINSTER KC HAS ANOTHER CLAIM TO FAME

Westminster Kennel Club in New York, famous for its annual dog show,  now has another activity garnering it positive acclaim.  Its therapy dog program, called Angels on a Leash, provides well trained -- and very appealing -- dogs for visits to the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital in New York.  Among these canines is Moe, a 7-year-old standard poodle. Her owner, Robin Arnold, says Moe just understands what the kids need.

Canine Health Tips
NEW TRICKS & ANTIOXIDANTS GOOD FOR OLD DOGS

While few people spend time teaching their old dogs new tricks,  a new study done with beagles discovered that regular physical activity, mental stimulation, and a diet rich in antioxidants appear to help keep the brains of older canines in top shape. The research, supported by the U.S. National Institute on Aging (NIA ), suggests that diet and mental exercise may work more effectively in combination than by themselves. And, the researchers say, the study may have implications for humans, too. Learn about how the study was done -- and its implications for your dog and you.

Genetic tests can play a helpful role in dogs' health. First, the tests can help the owner of a mixed-breed dog find out the breeds in its ancestry.  Second, the tests can help any dog owners be aware of possible genetic disorders the dog may be susceptible to now or as the dog ages -- based on its genetic patterns.  Read about the test here:

EXTRA CANINE LINK - ADVICE FROM "DOC" LOMBARD:
----

Love to learn dog training insights from the pros? We are pleased to offer as an extra feature an article by Nancy Cowan on sled dog training ideas from Roland "Doc" Lombard, one of the most famous sled dog racers of all time. Nancy draws on the content of her new book, The Training and Racing Journals of Roland and Louise Lombard," for an example or two of how Doc approached training challenges and dog psychology. The article is published online in our Racing Siberian Husky Online section.

* * WONDERFUL DOG BOOKS! * *
                            ---o0o---


Having Fun with Agility
By Margaret H. Bonham

--------------------------------------

We are pleased to feature a wonderful book that explores the increasingly popular sport of dog agility, written by a well-known dog writer.  Agility is the fastest growing dog sport in America -- and this book introduces the fun and games of the sport without all the high pressure aspects of competition. The book includes the use of clicker training as part of agility training.

To examine and order this book, just click
through the link under the book at left.

PUPPY SCHOOL: Everything you need to know to raise the perfect pup
By Maggie Holt & Stella Sweeting

-----
The two authors of this new book together have more than 40 years of experience in dog training athletes, and the book uses a very appealing approach filled with photographs. You have the opportunity to see exactly how a dog can be trained for a specific skill or activitity. Often that skill is illustrated with three or four photos, so you see each step along the way.

Dog behaviors addressed including such things as bite inhibition and the command "watch me" to increase your dog's attentiveness. There is emphasis on teaching dogs the right cue commands. For beginning owners, there are the basics including getting your puppy used to being touched from head to tail.  Even long-time dog owners and trainers will find the book of interest, and may find it a good book to recommend to new puppy owners.

To examine and order this book, just click
through the link under the book at left.

Big-Enough Anna: Little Sled Dog that Braved the Arctic
By Pam Flowers & Ann Dixon

------------------------------------------------
Several summers ago, I had a chance to meet Pam Flowers and her huskies during a trip to Alaska. Since then, WorkingDogWeb has featured her book on her trip across the Arctic [Alone Across the Arctic] and now are delighted to feature Big-Enough Anna, her children's story about Anna, the gutsy husky puppy. Perfect for any child who likes animals and adventure, and for parents who love reading to their youngsters.
