Synopsis

"He's going to need six weeks crate rest; just keep him quiet while he recovers."These words - which often form part of the treatment requirements for dogs undergoing surgery, or requiring long-term medical care - can strike fear into an owner's heart. Not a lot of advice is available regarding appropriate mental and emotional support for dogs whilst their usual exercise is limited, and owners are left to manage as best they can, which can be stressful for both owner and dog, and can lead to behaviour changes and problems.This unique book, written by professionals in their field, aims to help owners identify the individual needs of their dog, and, in addition, offer support in preparing their dog for a period of restricted exercise, when surgical interventions are planned.Ideas and tips for mental stimulation and emotional support - as well as alternatives to physical exercise and guidance on how to teach specific skills - are included.Beautiful, specially-taken photographs illustrate every chapter, and worksheets enable owners to chart the progress of their dog's care plan.

Helen Zulch, a veterinarian who qualified in South Africa, worked in a number of areas of veterinary science before focusing on animal behaviour. She has consulted and lectured in the area for over 10 years and holds European Specialist status in the field. She moved to the University of Lincoln, UK, to continue her career, and her main interests and areas of research include: the prevention of behaviour problems through appropriate early life experiences, the application of scientific principles in animal training, the interaction between health and behaviour, communication in animals, and olfaction in dogs. She has owned and trained dogs all her adult life. Helen is currently programme leader of the MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Lincoln. Peter Baumber is a multi-skilled photographer with specific expertise and experience in the field of classic motorcycles, portraiture, dogs and cats. On commissioned projects he works closely with authors and editors to ensure that the images he creates best illustrate the subject matter under discussion in the accompanying text. Sian Ryan has an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour and many years experience as a dog trainer and behaviour counsellor. She worked as a behaviour counsellor in the Behaviour Clinic at the University of Lincoln, and as a researcher in dog behaviour and emotions. She has her own training and education centre, Developing Dogs, where she runs classes, workshops and seminars for dog owners and trainers. She has fostered dogs for several rescue organisations, including a 12-week old sighthound puppy, who had been abandoned at a vets with a badly broken leg. This puppy - typically high energy and in need of exercise and socialisation - required 9 months of care and rehabilitation, and was the catalyst for writing this book.
