The Secret Language of Dogs
Stories from a Dog Psychic
Dog Whisperer to Celebrity Pets Shows How to Communicate with Your Dog
“I will always be grateful for the insights Jocelyn offered me, in how to help my sweet abused Dainty girl to live her happiest life!” —Carol Kane, Stage and Screen Actress
So often people mutter, “If only my dog could talk. Then I would know what he really wants. I would know what to do!” According to dog trainer and psychic, Jocelyn Kessler, dogs are communicating with us all the time, we just need to pay attention. “Your dog knows when you are getting a common cold even before you start sniffling,” says Kessler. “If you have great anxiety, not only does your dog feel it but she takes it on immediately. And, most of the time it’s because your dog doesn’t want you to feel it.”
Kessler, who has worked with the dogs of entertainment industry professionals, including celebrity actresses Parker Posey, Carol Kane, and Melanie Mayron, explains how to listen to your pet in her new book, THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF DOGS (Hampton Roads, April 2013).
Kessler offers poignant and humorous stories of actual sessions with clients, as well as a step-by- step guide to connect to your animal on your own. She explains how to read the behavioral and energetic traits of your dog, and how to avoid inflicting your own emotional issues onto your pet, along with special advice for helping dogs with medical conditions, rescue dogs, and dogs with behavioral issues.
THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF DOGS brings much needed attention to the value and appreciation of the wisdom of animals, how they live in the moment, and how, by connecting to them energetically, they can guide us to a higher level of understanding who and what we are.
Jocelyn Kessler lives in Los Angeles and works both in California and New York with animals and their owners, including many high profile individuals. Her website is www.jocelynkessler.com.
The Secret Language of Dogs
Hampton Roads Publishing
New technology provides a way for Pet Owners to keep their pets safe! Protector® was designed specifically to help pet owners deter dog attacks.
Now there is an effective, humane way to keep you and your pet safe!
It happens every 75 seconds and it can take less than 10 seconds for tragedy to happen. Over 1,000 (pets, pet owners or both) suffer from dog bites each day.
According to the JAMA, dog attack victims now suffer up to $2 billion dollars annually and dog bites make up a third of all home owners’ liability claims. It’s extremely unfortunate but true; a nice walk in the park can turn into one hundred stitches, a week of intensive care and thousands of dollars in hospital bills.
Man’s best friend is considered by most pet owners to be a member of their family and most will do whatever it takes to protect theirs. Unfortunately, many give little thought to protecting their lovable friend until it is too late. These dangerous attacks leave panicked owners searching for any means possible to separate and deter the attacking dog. 2x4’s, sticks, purses, their own hands and sometimes even weapons have been used to stop attacks. Unfortunately, these situations often result in serious injuries to the attacking dog, the pet and the owner.
Now an environmentally friendly, safe and effective option allows pet owners to keep their best friend safe by deterring attacking dogs at a safe distance. Recently approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, Protector Dog Spray provides an all-natural food grade pepper spray formulation which stops the attack safely. With a range of up to 15 feet, Protector® temporarily stings and closes the eyes of the attacking dog. All effects reverse in just a few minutes leaving no injuries to the attacking dog and the necessary time for you and your pet to escape to safety.
Protect yourself and your pet. Walk confidently with Protector® dog spray.
Family owned and operated since 1975, Security Equipment Corporation (SEC) is the manufacturer of Protector Dog Attack spray, Frontiersman Bear Attack Deterrent and SABRE and SABRE RED personal & professional safety sprays. A dedication to innovation coupled with a commitment to producing very safe products and formulations has made SEC the industry leader in sprays designed to keep individuals and now their pets safe.
THE CAT WHISPERER
Why Cats Do What They Do—and How to Get Them to Do What You Want
By Mieshelle Nagelschneider
Foreword by Gwen Cooper
A Bantam Books Hardcover | On Sale: March 5, 2013
Advance Praise for THE CAT WHISPERER
“Full of “think like a cat” advice, Nagelschneider’s work will make for happier human-feline households.” —Booklist
“Pet-owners despairing of getting their cats to behave will find new hope in this comprehensive guide. More than meets Nagelschneider’s goal of guiding owners to the strategies for behavioral and environmental change needed to address issues such as urination outside the litter box and aggressiveness.”
“I wish I had read The Cat Whisperer before I started filming Must Love Cats. The cats would have liked me a lot more.”
—John Fulton, host of Animal Planet’s Must Love Cats
“The reason people are so mesmerized by house cats is because they are truly miniature versions of lions, tigers, and leopards. In her book The Cat Whisperer, Mieshelle explains in the behavior of the house cat an unprecedented and a most accessible way, with her unique insight into the often misunderstood companion animal that is as wild as we have become civilized.”
—Jordan Carlton Schaul, PhD, Contributing Editor, National Geographic Society and Curator, Orange County Zoo
“Nagelschneider is a wizard at demystifying cat behavior and providing easy-to-follow steps for solving vexing problems. I dog-eared (or should I say cat-eared) so many pages for later reference that my book doesn’t want to close. Living with six demanding cats in a small house, I wish I’d had this excellent guide years ago.”
—Bob Tarte, Author of Kitty Cornered, Enslaved by Ducks, and Fowl Weather
Who says you can’t train a cat? Just when you thought you had reached the end of your ball of twine, Mieshelle Nagelschneider, one of America’s most popular (and Harvard trained) cat behaviorists, comes to the rescue of perplexed cat owners everywhere with her authoritative new guide THE CAT WHISPERER: Why Cats Do What They Do—and How to Get Them to Do What You Want
(Bantam Book Hardcover; March 5, 2013). In it, Nagelschneider, who has been helping cat owners for over two decades, provides practical and effective strategies for solving every feline behavior problem imaginable—from litter box issues to scratching, spraying, biting, and beyond.
In this indispensible book, Nagelschneider explains that cats, like dogs, can be trained, but they require a different approach. To train a cat you need to understand how the mind of a creature who is not a pack animal works. This keen understanding of the unique way cats see the world—their need for safety and security, their acute territoriality, and their insatiable desire to catch and kill prey—is central to Nagelschneider’s work. In THE CAT WHISPERER, she takes readers step-by-step through her proven C.A.T. cat behavior modification plan, which is a commonsense course of action that can be specifically tailored to each individual cat. These easy-to-implement solutions help transform even the most anxiety-riddled companions into confident, gregarious, and relaxed cats who live longer, happier, and healthier lives.
In THE CAT WHISPERER, cat owners will learn:
· How to harness the power of “friendly pheromones” along with the importance of implementing an all-encompassing behavior plan (her proprietary 3-Part C.A.T. Plan) that covers every aspect of the behavior issue as well as transforming the cat’s environment.
· How to end aggression in multiple-cat households and help their cats coexist peacefully with groundbreaking techniques (including the Nagelschneider Method) based on social facilitation that creates a social glue between a tense multi-cat household that will help cats get along.
· Resolve once and for all the number one behavior issue in cats: litter box issues—even the notoriously difficult “pooping outside the box” issue.
· We are all cat whisperers—some anthropologists now believe we are genetically inclined to read animals well since we have lived amongst them for thousands of years. Mieshelle helps cat owners look at the world through the cat’s eyes to fix behavior problems.
Peppered throughout with stories and also her childhood memoir where cat whispering all began, Mieshelle Nagelschneider’s The Cat Whisperer is both an entertaining read and an endlessly useful resource.
About the Author:
Mieshelle Nagelschneider has worked extensively with thousands of cat owners and vets nationally and internationally solving their cat’s behavior issues. In 1999, she founded The Cat Behavior Clinic, a science-based consulting service that helps cat owners around the world understand and help their furry felines. She has been featured in Animal Planet’s Must Love Cats, Martha Stewart Living Radio, USA Today, Cat Fancy, Real Simple, and Feline Wellness, as well as on Salon.com, Pawnation.com, and NBC’s Petside.com.

Arlington, TX (November 1, 2012) - Making sure a pet maintains a nutrient-rich diet that is portioned appropriately for its breed and activity level is just one important element of pet care that contributes to a healthier life for a four-legged loved one. Petmate’s newest feeder, the Portion Right™ food dispenser, provides an innovative way for pet owners to address the need for portioning dry food while making meal time convenient by combining storage, precise measuring and serving into one thoughtfully engineered pet feeding solution.
Available now at pet specialty retailers, the patent-pending Portion Right is the first of its kind, featuring an easy-turn knob that dispenses precise portions of dry pet food from a 10-pound storage reservoir. Busy pet owners will enjoy the simplicity this product brings to feeding time, needing only to fill it occasionally instead of scooping or pouring food for every meal. Because the feeder does not dispense food until the knob is turned, pet owners can avoid the grazing and overfeeding that often leads to pet obesity, an increasing problem pervading both dog and cat households in the United States.
Practiced in conjunction with a nutritious, age-appropriate diet and regular exercise, portion control contributes to overall pet health, helping to minimize the negative side effects of over-eating, including weight gain and associated chronic diseases. The feeder, which joins Petmate’s large selection of feeding and watering products ranging from basic bowls to electronic programmable feeders, can be purchased for $44.99 at select retailers in time for the holidays.
Committed to the wellbeing of pets and the world they live in, Petmate is the trusted authority in smart solutions for devoted pet parents and discerning retailers alike. Sound advice and high quality products that are innovative, safe, practical and fun are Petmate hallmarks, as shown in our complete lines of: kennels, dog houses, bedding, litter maintenance, feeding and watering solutions, toys, collars and leads, and pet accessories. At Petmate, we are driven to create a healthy, happy life for your pets and ours. Petmate products can be found at pet supply stores nationwide.

Climate Change Policy Failures:
Why Conventional Mitigation Approaches Cannot Succeed
By Howard A. Latin
“Not only presents a compelling overview of current climate change debates and the policies recommended to address the problems at hand, but it serves as a radical critique of these discussions and approaches, providing alternatives to mainstream viewpoints.”
Jean-Marc Coicaud, Former Director, United Nations University Office
at the UN Headquarters, New York City
Global climate change is already here and has caused many deaths and many billions of dollars of property destruction in the past few years. Nearly every prediction of imminent harm made by scientists a decade ago has turned out to be more severe and more rapid than expected.
Even if it had broad political support, the currently accepted approach to climate change mitigation would take too long to accomplish too little, and is bound to fail consistently.
Distinguished Professor of Law, Howard A. Latin, addresses the critical U.S. and global climate-policy errors in his new book, Climate Change Policy Failures: Why Conventional Mitigation Approaches Cannot Succeed.
“Virtually all conventional mitigation programs share the same fundamental policy mistakes,” says Latin, “and have no chance of achieving genuine climate change progress.”
Climate Change Policy Failures describes a dozen major emissions-reduction programs or proposals and their common faults, which include a graduated multi-decade, emissions-reduction strategy that would postpone substantial greenhouse gas cutbacks until 2050 or later, when they would be too late to prevent worsening climate change dangers. The book also questions the unrealistic expectations for economic incentive mechanisms and market forces to control the degradation of climate conditions; and it describes how conventional mitigation efforts have reinforced the international negotiations stalemate on climate mitigation between developed and developing nations.
Climate Change Policy Failures shows that currently accepted emissions-reduction programs, ranging from American congressional bills and cap-and-trade schemes to the Kyoto Protocol and other international treaties, would prove “too little, too late” to stem rapidly deteriorating climate conditions. Instead, Professor Latin recommends a progressive de-carbonization strategy that would replace long-term emissions-reduction programs with “clean” CO2-free alternative technologies and processes.
This “clean” technology-replacement process would eliminate large quantities of heat-trapping greenhouse gas discharges, while allowing developed and developing nations to meet their economic objectives without causing further damage to our global climate. Rather than ineffectual, multi-decade emissions-reduction programs that cannot limit the cumulative concentration of greenhouse gases in the air, Climate Change Policy Failures proposes a shift to a technology-replacement strategy that could support current lifestyles and expanding economic development without further damaging the climate.
The book addresses a number of crucial topics including:
· Challenging the mitigation consensus using a “stocks and flows” analysis
· Reducing greenhouse gas discharges while increasing climate change risks
· Economic incentive programs in contrast to direct government regulation
· The on-going stalemate in international climate negotiations
· The need for multiple institutions with overlapping mitigation responsibilities
“The only way to reduce the greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere enough to decrease climate change risks,” adds Professor Latin, “is to replace large greenhouse gas pollution sources as rapidly as feasible in as many industrial sectors and geographic regions as possible with “clean” alternative technologies, processes and methods.”
Howard A. Latin earned a B.A. from Brandeis and a J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. In his 37 years as a law professor, he has published many highly-regarded articles on environmental law, toxic substances, torts, and products liability. He was a Fulbright Scholar in Australia during 1992 and in South Africa during 1997, and has traveled to more than 40 countries in the past three decades while conducting research on biodiversity conservation and climate change issues. In addition to the Fulbright visits, Professor Latin has been a visiting professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and the UCLA School of Law; a visiting scholar at the Rockefeller Bellagio Study Center in Lake Como, Italy, the University of California Law School at Berkeley, and the Richardson School of Law of the University of Hawaii in Honolulu; and he was the Distinguished Environmental Law Visiting Scholar at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. Professor Latin is an elected member of the American Law Institute, and has served as a consultant on environmental law and product safety to several government agencies and public advocacy groups.
