The Hammer - Why Dogs attack us and how to prevent it

For thousands of years, dogs have established themselves in the homes and hearts of humans, coming to be viewed almost exclusively as loyal, friendly, and obedient... which is why it is often so alarming and unexpected to owners when a dog attacks.

What causes dogs to act aggressively, and how can it be avoided? 

In this captivating work of non-fiction, Bryan Bailey, whose credentials include over thirty-five years of both studying and teaching the influence of wolves over modern dogs, sheds light upon the instincts that trigger aggressive behavior- and what can be done to prevent it. 

Featuring both meticulously researched information and thrilling stories inspired by real-life victims, this unforgettable book offers the only resource you'll need to learn to protect yourself from situations in which man's best friend turns into man's worst nightmare.

"This book should be read by everyone. Whether you like dogs or not, if you are ever going to come into contact with a dog, you need this information." - Seattle Book Review

10 Steps to Success

Housebreaking is the bane of puppyhood for most dog owners. It is an incredibly frustrating process that has been made even more so by misguided training recommendations doled out by friends, family, the internet, and a myriad of dog professionals. The information provided is often incorrect or misleading, especially regarding the amount of time and effort that will be required to train your dog to go potty outdoors and not indoors reliably. However, successful housebreaking doesn’t have to be so scary or painful. It just requires patience, consistency, a small bit of knowledge about your dog’s natural behavior, and a willingness to follow ten important steps. Solve your housebreaking problems forever with the help of Bryan's book, Housebreaking: 10 Steps to Success.

The Impenetrable Lie - Rehabilitating fearful & aggressive dogs

Mental illness is a condition that we, as humans, are all too familiar with. However, we're not familiar with it being a condition that currently affects over 20% of all domestic dogs. Yet, it does, and that number is rising at a staggering rate with each passing year because of weakening genetic baselines, harmful environmental influences, inadequate imprinting, and socialization, AND improper treatment.

With dogs, this condition creates a perpetual, unwarranted state of fear and anxiety that blurs the line between valid threats and non-threats, and friendly behavior and not-friendly behavior. It's a very sad and dangerous condition that I call the impenetrable lie. A condition where anything and anyone can be construed as a threat to the dog’s well-being and anything you do to convince the stricken dog otherwise is considered a lie. As a consequence, no matter how much time, energy, and money is put into obedience training or desensitization programs, the lie remains impenetrable unless a two-dimensional approach that involves blending psychoactive medications with a deactivation training program tailored for the dog's specific condition is used.

This condition among dogs is the new reality for anyone involved in training, rescuing, or rehabilitating maladaptive dogs. Knowing how to treat the condition is the crucial first step in saving their lives.
