Animal lovers often wonder what their pet’s meow, bark, tweet, or stare means. Why the incessant meowing after Kitty has been fed, petted, and played with? Why is Fido barking up a storm or digging as if his life depended on it? Pet owners want to know, and Tim Link, an expert animal communicator, teaches readers how to find out. The author was surprised to find himself communicating with the pets of family and friends. Because Link was caught off guard by his own gift, he is adept at helping readers first hone their communication skills, using the spoken and the visual and also learning to “listen”. From there, the book focuses on particular behaviors. Unlike most training methods, Link’s approach respects the personality and feelings of animals. His methods, simple and accessible to all, facilitate the understanding that all animal lovers crave and create a back-and-forth communication that will enhance the lives of both animals and humans.
TIM LINK, nationally syndicated radio host, animal communicator, and Reiki practitioner, created his Wagging Tales consulting practice upon discovering his “talk to the animals” abilities. He often works with animal-rescue organizations and lives in Cumming, Georgia. His website is www.TalkingWithDogsandCats.com

Bash Dibra is a big, ebullient man with a warm smile, a gentle manner, and a lifelong affinity for dogs. When he was only three years old and fled with his family from Albania to a refugee camp in Yugoslavia, he made friends with the attack dogs that guarded the compound. Later, as the family traveled through Europe, Bash was able to work with master dog trainers, and he continued his work when he came to the United States. Then came the opportunity to raise and train a wolf, and through this experience Bash developed his unique methods of dog training.

Bash credits his incredible way with dogs to his beloved wolf, Mariah, who taught him so much, and who was the official symbol of the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.
"Celebrity Pet Trainer Bash dubbed the" Pet Laureate of our Times."

At the age of three, Bash and his parents fled from their native country of Albania to Yugoslavia. They ended up in a refugee camp where Bash had his first introduction to the forerunner of dogs, the wolf. Used to guard the prisoners and supposedly frighten them, Bash soon out-foxed the wolves and had them eating out of his hands much to the chagrin of the prison guards. From that time on Bash knew what his life career would be � working with animals.
Bash�s own pets are celebrities in their own right, having been featured in motion pictures, tv commercials and ads.

Melissa Confusing and unpredictable human behavior can cause your dog to act out. Learn how to protect your dog and your liability in today’s world. Imagine your reaction if your child’s friend grabs the remote control of the TV you are watching and changes the channel—and then later, does it again. We instantly recognize this behavior as wrong and correct it. When humans break dog rules and they correct us, we ignore our insubordinate actions and default to “blaming the dog.”Former animal officer Melissa Berryman has witnessed how devastating the effects society’s entrenched beliefs regarding dog behavior and temperament can be—that good behavior can be purchased, that an owner’s handling ability doesn’t matter, that human behavior and the situations in which the dog is placed are insignificant. Berryman shows how analyzing situations and contexts can stop the cycle of preventable incidents. Written with humor and compassion, People Training for Good Dogs offers insight into the impact that human behavior and understanding have on our relationships with dogs. By working with core canine social and behavioral drives, Berryman provides owners with sound techniques that focus on safety and can help protect their liability in today’s world.“This is the new Bible for all dog owners. … It will truly help you have the best relationship with yours and all dogs!” —Katie Riopel, dog trainer and host of Katie K9 Visit www.ptfgd.com to order the book and gt more information
