So hält es auch in schwierigen Situationen die Balance und findet immer einen Weg, um handlungsfähig zu bleiben. Je nach Anforderung hüpft es mit kleinen oder großen Sprüngen auf sein Ziel zu. All das hilft ihm, seine innere Stärke zu bewahren und stets problemlos mit Herausforderungen fertig zu werden. Die erfahrene Trainerin Jutta Heller erklärt anhand der Känguruqualitäten, wie man innere Widerstandskraft gewinnt und Resilienz aufbaut.

Mobben, Klauen, Jagen - die liebsten Hobbys unserer (Wind)hunde. Dieses Buch richtet sich an alle "Hundemenschen," die sich genauer mit dem Wesen der Windhunde beschaftigen mochten, oder einen Hund haben, der die aufgefuhrten Verhaltensprobleme zeigt. Bei unseren Windhunden sind diese Verhaltensweisen zum Teil so stark ausgepragt und treten gerne auch in genau dieser Kombination auf, so dass diese Hunde, wenn man nicht gezielt mit ihnen arbeitet, haufig eine lebenslange Leinenpflicht haben. In diesem Buch werden die Ursachen beleuchtet und mogliche Herangehensweisen an diese Falle aufgezeigt. Hierbei liegt ein Schwerpunkt auf den Windhunden, die aus dem Ausland uber den Tierschutz zu uns kommen. Dieses Buch mochte u. a. in der Form von konkreten Anleitungen Hilfestellung geben und motivieren, diesen manchmal sehr langen Weg zum Freilauf anzugehen. Denn es gibt kaum etwas Schoneres, als einen Windhund frei laufen zu sehen.

Als junger, abenteuerlustiger Business-School-Absolvent auf der Suche nach einer Herausforderung lieh Phil Knight sich von seinem Vater 50 Dollar und gründete eine Firma mit einer klaren Mission: qualitativ hochwertige, aber preiswerte Laufschuhe aus Japan importieren. In jenem ersten Jahr, 1963, verkaufte Knight Laufschuhe aus dem Kofferraum seines Plymouth Valiant heraus und erzielte einen Umsatz von 8000 Dollar. Heute liegen die Jahresumsätze von Nike bei über 30 Milliarden Dollar. In unserem Zeitalter der Start-ups hat sich Knights Firma Nike als Maßstab aller Dinge etabliert und sein "Swoosh" ist längst mehr als nur ein Logo. Es ist ein Symbol von Geschmeidigkeit und Größe, eines der wenigen Icons, die in jedem Winkel unseres Erdballs sofort wiedererkannt werden. Aber Knight selbst, der Mann hinter dem Swoosh, ist immer ein Geheimnis geblieben. Jetzt erzählt er endlich seine Geschichte. Seine Memoiren sind überraschend, bescheiden, ungeschönt, humorvoll und handwerklich meisterhaft. Den Anfang markiert eine klassische Situation am Scheideweg. Der 24-jährige Knight bereist als Rucksacktourist Asien, Europa und Afrika, ihn bewegen die ganz großen philosophischen Fragen des Lebens. Und er entscheidet sich für einen unkonventionellen Lebensweg. Anstatt für ein großes etabliertes Unternehmen zu arbeiten, beschließt er, etwas ganz Eigenes zu schaffen – etwas, das neu, dynamisch und anders ist. En détail beschreibt Knight die vielen unberechenbaren Risiken, mit denen er sich auf seinem Weg konfrontiert sah, die niederschmetternden Rückschläge, die skrupellosen Konkurrenten, die zahllosen Zweifler und Widersacher, die abweisenden Banker, die etlichen Male, wo er knapp einer Katastrophe entging, ebenso wie seine vielen triumphalen Erfolge.

From Oprah’s dog trainer and the New York Times bestselling author of The Loved Dog—a groundbreaking thirty-day plan for coaching dogs of all ages to become housebroken, happy, and well behaved within one month. Long known as a dog coach to the stars—her clients include Oprah Winfrey, Ben Affleck, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Owen Wilson, Natalie Portman, and Larry King—Tamar Geller changed the way Americans relate to their dogs with her bestselling book The Loved Dog. Her approach is simple and down-to-earth. Instead of utilizing the negative and often painful feedback of physical dominance, choke chains, and prong collars, Tamar recommends love, play, and mutual respect as the keys to a happy home for dog and human alike. Now, Tamar makes her Loved Dog™ Method accessible for everyone with this day-by-day guide that will lead you through the first thirty days with your new dog—or help you make a fresh start with your current dog. Drawing on her studies of wolves in the wild and basing her method on the principles of child development, Tamar uses an "instincts versus choice" approach that satisfies a dog’s Seven Basic Needs and will result in a pet with good manners. 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog covers every question commonly asked by people embarking on the momentous journey of dog ownership: why it’s important to choose the appropriate dog for you and your lifestyle, what you can expect from a puppy versus an adult dog, how to introduce your new dog to your home, and how to respond when things don’t go according to plan. Tamar guides you every step of the way, from addressing undesired behaviors in your dog to crate and paper training him to introducing him to other dogs and helping him become relaxed with strangers. Included are important but often overlooked tips about the use of words and body language to communicate, the power of play, and the amazing value of teaching your dog some lighthearted pet tricks. Along the way, Tamar debunks myths in need of debunking: that dogs are frequently "alpha" by nature and need to be dominated; that discipline is the key to dog training, and that "success" only means getting your dog to do what you want. Instead, she shows how to align your dog's wishes with your own to create a rich and enduring relationship that works wonderfully for you both. Gentle, firm, and effective, 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog will build your relationship with your dog to make every new day together a day of love, joy, and discovery.
