Dogs are a part of nearly 40 percent of United States households. With this in mind, author Linda P. Case has written the definitive textbook on dogs and their care. Completely updated and revised, the second edition of The Dog covers four areas of compelling interest: the bond between dogs and humans, canine behavior, canine health and disease, and canine nutrition. Aiming to enhance the human-dog bond, author Case uses clear, understandable writing to explain selective breeding, training principles, solution to common behavior problems, diet and nutrition, and preventative health care. Case liberally uses distinctive figures and tables, current references plus suggested readings, and a thorough glossary to aid in comprehension. More in-depth that most dog books, The Dog will prove to be an indispensable tool for undergraduate companion animal courses, veterinary technician courses, and dog care/training courses. In addition, it will serve as a valuable resource for professional breeders, trainers, exhibitors, and veterinary clinicians.

Are you interested in the breeds of guard dogs? You have made a good choice. Herd protection dogs are something very special and that in every respect. They impress not only with their imposing size, but also by their external appearance. This can be very striking depending on the breed. While some come up with a beautiful long and white coat, others have shaggy hair that looks like dreadlocks. Many of these guard dogs have in common that they are descended from Asian dogs, which came to Europe many thousands of years ago through the migrations. These dogs already possessed the important qualities of natural protection and guarding instincts, and also the gift of acting independently and making decisions without human interference. The contents of the book are: - Difference guard dog and herding dog - A portrait of guard dogs - Which breeds are there? - Education of the dogs - Herding dogs at home - FCI Standards - Summary Even the diet of the guard dogs, which is still unusual today, can be traced back to this time. They are not fed like conventional domestic dogs, but much lower in protein. Furthermore, these dogs are also able to digest dairy products, which is not the case with normal dogs and can lead to digestive disorders. Now the future owner of such a dog should be aware, however, that likewise the attitude and education can lead to considerable problems. Such a large dog needs a lot of space and it is not enough to have a small garden. The demands of a guard dog are somewhat higher and you must be able to fulfill them, so that your companion can lead a species-appropriate life. As you can see from these few lines, a guard dog is not a dog for everyone. It belongs in absolutely experienced hands. If you belong to these experienced hands, inform yourself in this guide about the different breeds of guard dogs. Learn what belongs to their strengths and weaknesses and whether such a special dog is also suitable as a family dog. Have fun reading and learn

The Saga of the Aryan Race is a historical epic about the origins of the Aryan people. The Saga chronicles the ancient Indo-Europeans of twenty thousand years ago, who proudly called themselves the Aryans - the Noble Ones. They were the first worshippers of Ahura Mazda, the name of God in the ancient Aryan tongue of Avestan. The Saga is a work of historical fiction based on Zoroastrian scriptures. Volumes I and II speak of the early days of the Aryans in the ancestral homeland Airyane Vaejahi, the seedland of the Aryans, and the great migrations to Iran, land of the Aryans. Volumes III, IV and V carry on with the childhood and youth of the first Aryan prophet, Asho Zarathustra, his revelations from the Creator Ahura Mazda and his divine mission to rejuvenate the ancient religion in Iran. Ancient Avestan words and concepts from sacred texts such as the Gathas, Vendidad, and Yashts, are woven into the story in a way that makes these lofty ideals easy to understand. This is a wonderful legend from the time of the Aryan ancestors that is little known in the Western world. The author, Porus Homi Havewala, born in India, is descended from the Aryan forefathers who settled in Iran. A group of Aryans, known as Parsi Zoroastrians, migrated to India after the Arab conquest of Iran in order to preserve their ancient Aryan religion. The aim of the author in writing this book is to inspire his fellow Aryan Zoroastrians, especially the young, with faith and righteous pride in their religion, like their Aryan ancestors in ancient times, as well as to educate others about the remarkable history and beliefs of the Aryan peoples.
