Betty White
When one thinks of celebrities and animals, one can't help but think of Betty White. They go hand in hand. Or paw in hand. That's because Betty White is as passionate about animals as she is about acting, which is the other reason we know and love her. A member of the Television Hall of Fame and six-time Emmy Award winner for her roles which have included The Happy Homemaker on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls, this busy actress has been a part of television since 1949. Her love of animals, however, started long before that.

Dr. Stanley Coren
How Dogs Think: What the World Looks Like to Them and Why They Act the Way They Do
Bestselling author, psychologist, and world-renowned expert on dog behavior and training Dr. Stanley Coren presents the most informative, in-depth, fascinating book yet on dogs with numerous funny, informative anecdotes, experiments, and firsthand observations. It lets you see through a dog's eyes, hear through his ears, and even sense the world through his nose. How Dogs Think also answers questions about our canine companions that have puzzled many: Can dogs count? Do they have an appreciation of art or music? Can a dog learn how to do something just by watching another dog or even a person do it? Do dogs dream? What is the nature of dog personality? Which behaviors are prewired into your dog, and which can you actually change? And, can dogs actually sense future earthquakes or detect cancer? Find out the answers to these questions and more.

Kathy Santo
"Dog Sense"
Whether you have a puppy or an adult dog, a home- or sleep-wrecker (or both), whether your dog has ingrained bad manners or simply hasn't learned any good ones yet, you can quickly determine your dog's "personality", the interplay of prime motivations, energy level, work ethic, and emotional profile to tailor a regimen optimally suited to his learning needs. Where "one-size" programs typically founder in canine chaos and human frustration, the Santo method carries you past failure. Even when your dog doesn't respond, your understanding of him deepens and leads you to a better strategy. The result is a lifetime of improving obedience, an ever more confident and happy dog, and an ever more gratifying relationship for you both.
