Das andere Ende der Leine

Was unseren Umgang mit Hunden bestimmt

Author: Patricia B. McConnell

Publisher: Kynos Verlag

ISBN: 3942335557

Category: Pets

Page: 256

View: 594

Dieses Buch wirft eine revolutionäre, neue Perspektive auf unseren Umgang mit Hunden: Es beleuchtet unser Verhalten im Vergleich zu dem der Hunde! Als Doktorin der Zoologie, Tierverhaltenstherapeutin und Hundetrainerin mit mehr als zwanzig Jahren Praxiserfahrung betrachtet Patricia McConnell uns Menschen augenzwinkernd wie eine interessante Spezies von Säugetieren. Fundiert, aber höchst unterhaltsam beschreibt sie, wie wir uns in Gegenwart von Hunden verhalten, wie die Hunde unser Verhalten interpretieren (oder missverstehen) könnten und wie wir am besten mit unseren vierbeinigen Freunden umgehen, um das Beste aus ihnen herauszuholen. Beginnen Sie, Hundeverhalten aus der Sicht eines Hundes zu betrachten und Sie werden verstehen, warum vieles, das wie Ungehorsam Ihres Hundes aussieht, einfach ein großes Missverständnis ist. Denn wir sind Primaten, die Hunde Caniden - und sprechen folglich andere Sprachen! Hier erfahren Sie: - Wie Ihr Hund eher auf Zuruf kommt, wenn Sie sich weniger wie ein Affe und mehr wie ein Hund benehmen - Warum der Rat, "Dominanz" über den Hund erlangen zu müssen, Sie in Schwierigkeiten bringen kann - Welche Persönlichkeitstypen Menschen und Hunden gemeinsam sind und warum die meisten Hunde lieber mit großzügigen Herrschern als mit "Möchtegern-Alphas" zusammenleben - ... und vieles mehr! Zahlreiche kleine Geschichten, Erlebnisse und amüsante Begebenheiten am Rande machen dieses Buch zu einer Fundgrube für Aha-Erlebnisse, bei denen höchstes Lesevergnügen garantiert ist. So viel Spaß kann Verhaltensforschung machen!
