WHO'S A GOOD DOG?
And How to Be a Better Human

by Jessica Pierce

A guide to cultivating a shared life of joy and respect with our dogs.

Who’s a Good Dog?
is an invitation to nurture more thoughtful and balanced relationships with our canine companions. By deepening our curiosity about what our dogs are experiencing, and by working together with them in a spirit of collaboration, we can become more effective and compassionate caregivers.


With sympathy for the challenges met by both dogs and their humans, bioethicist Jessica Pierce explores common practices of caring for dogs, including how we provide exercise, what we feed, how and why we socialise and train, and how we employ tools such as collars and leashes. She helps us both to identify potential sources of fear and anxiety in our dogs’ lives and to expand practices that provide physical and emotional nourishment. 

Who’s a Good Dog? also encourages us to think more critically about what we expect of our dogs and how these expectations can set everyone up for success or failure. 

Pierce offers resources to help us cultivate attentiveness and kindness, inspiring us to practice the art of noticing, of astonishment, of looking with fresh eyes at these beings we think we know so well. And more than this, she makes her findings relatable by examining facets of her relationship with Bella, the dog in her life. 

As Bella shows throughout, all dogs are good dogs, and we, as humans and dog guardians, could be doing a little bit better to get along with them and give them what they need.

THE WAY OF LIFE METHOD
How to Heal Your Relationship with Your Dog and Raise a Sound, Strong, and Spirited Companion (At Any Age) 
by Souha Ezzedeen 

Get to the root of your dog’s behaviour by building a deeper relationship with The Way of Life Method. Even the most loved dog can drive their owner crazy with behaviour issues. Between the time and money spent on tools and training methods that go nowhere, it can feel like you and your pup are doomed to a life of anxiety, reactivity, and dog aggression.

Getting to the root of your dog’s problem behaviour starts with looking at your way of life.


Dog trainer and relationship coach Souha Ezzedeen draws on nearly two decades of experience with man’s best friend to invite owners to think differently about their relationship with their dog. 

Not just another dog training book, this guide takes a revolutionary approach to raising dogs and addressing their problems by pulling from the instinctual lessons of mother dogs and wolf packs. Get a new understanding of why dogs are having such trouble and cultivate a deeper and more harmonious bond.

Whether you’re welcoming a new puppy to the family or dealing with a challenging canine companion, you will:

  • Establish a positive relationship with your dog using a three-stage program.
  • Focus on mindsets, boundaries, socialisation, and dogs’ natural instincts as you complete reflection questions and practice essential exercises.
  • Learn your mindset’s hidden power when you uncover your goals at each stage.
  • Get a better grasp of mother dogs and wolves in nature to create a way of life that your dog instinctively understands.
  • Perfect your connection with your canine by understanding how to raise dogs for character and attitude instead of training them for skills or behaviours.
  • Put priority on your relationship with your dog and heal the bond with your family companion, regardless of their age, breed, or background. The Way of Life Method goes beyond conventional training to help you design a way of life where you and your dog connect and thrive.

DOG ECONOMICS

Perspectives on Our Canine Relationships

by David L. WeimerAidan R. Vining


Archaeologists, anthropologists, and evolutionary biologists study the origins of our relationship with dogs and how it has evolved over time. Sociologists and legal scholars study the roles of dogs in the modern familyVeterinarian researchers address the relationship in the context of professional practice, yet economists have produced scant scholarship on the relationship between humans and dogs. 

Dog Economics
 
applies economic concepts to relationships between people and dogs to inform our understanding of their domestication. It interprets their contemporary role as both property and family members and explores factors that affect the demand for dogs as well as market failures of the American puppy market. 

Offering economic perspectives on our varied relationships with dogs, this book assesses mortality risks and addresses end-of-life issues that commonly arise. 

It develops a framework for classifying canine occupations, considers the impact of pet insurance on euthanasia, and assesses the social value of Guide Dogs.

, starting with Strongheart's first film, The Love Master, which is released in 1921. Strongheart is soon joined by a leading lady, a German Shepherd named Lady Julie, and becomes a sensation.

Aussies encouraged to adopt a pet in need this March

This March 2024, the Petstock Foundation is celebrating a milestone: 10 years of National Pet Adoption Month, an initiative that helps find loving homes for pets in need of adoption.

Over the past 10 years, the Petstock Foundation's National Pet Adoption Month has helped find loving homes for 40,000 rescue pets across Australia and New Zealand, but there are still more animals in need of homes. 

There are currently over 8,000 pets at shelters, rescue groups, pounds and vets across Australia awaiting adoption [1], and with the rising costs of everyday expenses, sadly it is predicted that this number will continue to rise. With a mission to improve the lives of people through the strong bond we experience with our pets, the Petstock Foundation is encouraging people to adopt or foster a pet this National Pet Adoption Month (NPAM), to open your heart to a pet in need, and experience the positive impact a pet can bring to your life.

Research [2] indicates that 36% of Australian adults have reported feeling lonely, showing we have a need for more connection and companionship in our communities. Universally [3], 97% of people agree that having a pet positively influences one’s life, and improves the mental health of the owner and those around them (95% agree).

Pets are seen to offer emotional support (81%), companionship (80%), and are seen as family (76%). So, adopting a pet can not only give a pet in need a loving home, it can also improve our mental health by decreasing feelings of loneliness and social isolation.

These findings are supported by studies that show companion animals have been found to bring substantial health benefits to people both physically and mentally [4], and an association between all types of pet ownership and lower experiences of social isolation, particularly for children [5].

If you’re considering adopting, like over 25% of Australians [6], but are hesitant of bringing an animal with poor behaviour traits into your home, fear not. Animal Behaviourist and Petstock Foundation ambassador, Dr Kate Mornement says it shouldn't put you off. 

“Many rescue animals have been surrendered for reasons other than their behaviour, and many have undertaken basic training, so I would encourage people to not be deterred from adopting for these reasons. In my experience, an adopted animal can adjust and learn how to fit into your life, with a little training and patience”.

“If you’re still concerned, why not consider adopting a different kind of animal. Guinea pigs, birds and rabbits also make wonderful pets, and are particularly great companions for children to help teach them kindness, compassion and how to care for animals.

Or if you are not currently in a position to adopt, you could consider fostering a pet in need. Most animals in foster care have their food and medical expenses paid for by the rescue organisation, and it’s a great way to see if your family is ready to commit to a pet long term,” says Dr Kate.

Fostering a pet or welcoming a different kind of animal into your family could provide immediate relief to the rescue community. There are currently over 730 [7] adoptable pets advertised as needing foster carers on the PetRescue website, which is currently Australia's largest searchable database of rescue pets. There’s no shortage of different kinds of animals to consider welcoming into your home either. You’ll find over 490 [8] interesting species of animals including guinea pigs, ferrets, birds, horses, sheep, rabbits, and more, all currently available to adopt today, also listed on PetRescue.

“Our family has fostered a number of dogs, as well as a small Conure parrot we fostered before we had kids. After that, we knew we were ready for a pet, and we adopted our foster dog Lenny, who is now a huge part of our family,” says Dr Kate.

Jessica Curtis, Petstock Foundation Strategic Manager says, “There are so many wonderful benefits of pet ownership, including reducing feelings of loneliness, opening up opportunities for social interaction, and increased overall happiness. Pets and people truly are better together, and to get involved in National Pet Adoption Month, we’re asking Australians to adopt or foster a rescue animal, or donate to the Petstock Foundation to support rescue pet charities across Australia”.

Animal lovers are encouraged to visit petstock.com.au/adopt or head to their local store in March to find a rescue pet that needs a loving home. 
On Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March, selected Petstock stores will have rescue pets available for adoption or fostering in store.

Visit www.petstock.com.au/adopt to find out more.

The Petstock Foundation is encouraging Australians to support rescue pets this National Pet Adoption Month, the 10th year of the initiative. Unfortunately, thousands of pets enter the rescue cycle each year through no fault of their own.

Pets and people: we’re better together.
