Lazy Labradors, springing Springers, terrible Terriers, permed Poodles, working dogs, lapdogs, hang-dogs and even sausage dogs! All these and more fill cartoonist Bryn's latest book. Bryn's first book was Mad Dogs and Englishmen. This time, it's all about the dogs; no humans to get in the way of a dog's life! Bryn can't imagine drawing without a dog at his feet or, more likely, sneaking onto the sofa. Whether it's barking at the postman, chewing on the TV remote, poking around in the bin for a tasty morsel or just letting off foul smells, Bryn's dogs are real. He's owned pedigrees and mutts, he's even tried to train them with limited success. They are obstinate, disobedient and embarrassing but they are family and much loved. This book of canine cartoons is the dog's doodahs and makes the perfect present for anyone who is similarly dog mad. In fact, if you don't buy it, you may well find yourself in the doghouse!

Most children who learn to ride dream of owning their own pony. Pony Care offers parents an in-depth guide for what is actually involved in successfully buying, owning and caring for a pony. With advice on finding the right pony, buying the necessary equipment, livery options, daily care, feeding, shoeing, health, exercise and, when the time comes, how to go about selling the pony.

Alison Pocklington shares a wealth of experience complete with tips and checklists. 'This book is a MUST HAVE for anyone who has had the tireless and repetitive call to buy from their pony-mad child.' - Lucinda Green MBE

Many dog owners struggle to manage their dogs, and the vast majority of people who need help have one simple but overwhelming problem. Their dog won't come back when they call him. Through focusing on this single and most important of obedience commands, Pippa Mattinson shows the dog owner - whether of a puppy or an adult dog - how to build up a reliable recall successfully, layer by layer, and step by step, using effective and positive training techniques. The book is divided into three parts: 1. Preparation – all the information you'll ever need in order to prepare and support yourself and your dog as you work through the training programme, including information on how your dogs learn, practical training with rewards and beyond training. 2. A detailed Recall Training Programme complete with exercises to work through. In other words the 'how to' section of the book where you'll learn puppy recall, pre-recall for older dogs, basic recall, on location training and ultimately recall for life. 3. The problem solving section, where you can discover why you got into difficulties in the past and learn how to avoid making the same mistakes again in the future. Enjoy your training journey and have fun with your dog!

This book is designed for all riders from the very novice to the most advanced. Sylvia Loch teaches through illustrations and photos how each tiny shift of the rider s weight will affect the horse s balance. The weight aids are generally taught only to higher level students especially those learning the more advanced skills. Yet, by including them from the beginning, novice riders will develop a much greater understanding of their own bodies and abilities and those of the horse from day one. In the Authors words... The time has surely come to show all riders how their body-weight impacts on the horse for good or bad. Feel and balance should govern the whole ethos of equitation. In this book, I show through pictures how the giving of the aids can transform the horse in each and every movement so that our communication with this wonderful animal takes us to new levels of understanding and empathy.

Caring for a Horse or Pony is the new name for one of The Pony Club’s longest-lasting and most popular publications – Keeping a Pony at Grass – which was first published over fifty years ago. Revised and rewritten to combine the latest latest research with tried and tested approaches, the new name also reflects how much has changed in the equestrian world since the first edition. Looking after a horse or pony is hugely rewarding. It’s also a great responsibility, as he depends on us to safeguard his health, safety and general well being. If one is a first-time owner or carer, one may feel daunted at how much there is to learn, but everyone has to take that first step. As one progresses, one’ll find that we never stop learning and that always wanting to find out more is part of the fascination of caring for horses. If one is an experienced owner, it’s always good to review the way one does things.
