Pit Bull: The Battle over an American Icon by Bronwen Dicky

A wonderfully entertaining, illuminating, well researched story of how America's Dog today demonized and outlawed.

  • An NPR Best Book of 2016

  • A Boston Globe Best Book of 2016

“Brilliant… A powerful and disturbing book that shows how the rise of the killer-pit bull narrative reflects many broader American anxieties and pathologies surrounding race, class, and poverty… A remarkable study of our capacities for cruelty and compassion toward dogs and other humans, and an eloquent argument for abandoning the fears and
prejudices that have made pit bulls in particular the victims of mistreatment.”

Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do by Marc Bekoff

"Everyone who owns a dog, breeds or trains dogs, or works with dogs should read this informative book." - Library Journal

Marc Bekoff (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Colorado) provides a terrifically readable exploration of our dog's mystifying behaviors.

Canine Confidential has the answers... it not only brilliantly opens up the world of dog behavior, but also helps us understand how we can make our dogs’ lives the best they can possibly be. Rooted in the most up-to-date science on cognition and emotion... Canine Confidential is a wonderfully accessible treasure trove of new information and myth-busting” (Amazon).

Shake Puppies by Carli Davidson

Artistic Masterpieces

Shake Puppies features two images of each dog placed side by side to capture the action of the shake—the tousled hair, the distorted expression, the flying water droplets. The photographs capture the dogs in the most candid of moments and were shot against brightly colored backdrops to make them fresh, lively, and inviting.
