Peter Baumber has really captured the essence and meaning of the text with his photographs and it s very well illustrated. Helen and Daniel have successfully achieved the task of incorporating many principles of behaviour modification in a way that the pet owner can understand and apply, with a strong emphasis on building relationships. In highlighting and celebrating the differences between dogs and people and in offering sensible solutions to help overcome these differences, they have achieved an excellent and readable guide for dog owners. It s certainly one to recommend alongside Life Skills for Puppies and No Walks? No Worries! Great job! --Kate Mallatratt www.contemplatingcanines.com
An affirmation of our ethical responsibilities towards our dogs ... This very personal skills based manual will enable you to establish a lasting and meaningful partnership with a dog ... Above all, Helping Minds Meet empowers you and your dog to have fun together. --Geelong Obedience Dog Club
a refreshing way to look at our relationship with dogs ... a must have book for all those that want to learn how to better understand and communicate with their canine companion. --Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC)
About the Author
Helen Zulch, a veterinarian who qualified in South Africa, worked in a number of areas of veterinary science before focusing on animal behaviour. She has consulted and lectured in the field for over 10 years and holds European Specialist status, moving to the University of Lincoln, UK, to continue this career. Her main interests and areas of research include the prevention of behaviour problems through appropriate early life experiences, the application of scientific principles in animal training, the interaction between health and behaviour, communication in animals, and olfaction in dogs. She has owned and trained dogs all her adult life. Helen is currently programme leader of the MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Lincoln. Daniel Mills is an internationally recognised veterinary behaviour specialist and Professor in Veterinary Behavioural Medicine at the University of Lincoln, England. He initially worked in the animal charity sector, where he developed his interest in problem prevention, before moving into academia about 20 years ago. After completing his PhD, Daniel became the first person to be recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as a Specialist in Veterinary Behavioural Medicine and was subsequently recognised by the European College and Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour. His main areas of research focus around the biological basis of problem behaviour and the recognition of emotional states in animals, which has led to the development and promotion of a number of novel approaches to managing problem behaviour. Peter Baumber is a multi-skilled photographer with specific expertise and experience in the field of classic motorcycles, portraiture, dogs and cats. On commissioned projects he works closely with authors and editors to ensure that the images he creates best illustrate the subject matter.
