Nowhere is it more apparent that the cat reigns supreme than on Twitter. Having got over the initial disappointment in finding Twitter was nothing to do with budgies, cats have finally taken to tweeting. In the wrong paws the smart phone has been turned into an antisocial network by the dominant feline race. Enjoy their greatest tweets as they point out the failures of other species, the pitfalls of house sharing with humans and other idiots, and where to stick your hashtag.

Think Dog

John Fisher
Authors:
John Fisher

In this seminal pet psychology book, John Fisher examines the mind of the dog with examples taken from his practical experience, with the aim of explaining to owners how the world appears from a dog's point of view.The first section of the book traces the ancestry and inherent behaviour of dogs, from their origins as pack animals related to the wolf or the jackal. The second part examines what most people describe as problem behaviour, which is just normal canine behaviour exhibited in the wrong place. The book concludes with an A-Z of common problems, their causes and cures.In the 1980s and 1990s John Fisher revolutionised dog training, first in England, then in the US. With his self-deprecating manner and 'Oh! So British' sense of humour he taught us to 'Think Dog'.

We all know that looking after our health is important, and understandably the same can be said of our pets, which is why providing your dog with a healthy lifestyle should be the aim of every conscientious owner.

That's why this book gives you the know-how to keep your dog fit, use hands-on healing and look after your best friend the natural way. From nutritional guides and fun exercises to natural parasite prevention, Natural Dog Care offers you the alternative route to optimal health. There's advice on holistic care such as acupuncture, homeopathy and chiropractic, as well as fully explained and illustrated massage routines and a directory of aromatherapy solutions for illnesses and stress.
