Canine Game Theory™, In Comes A Service Dog, and more

Free books have information about each subject that is vital to understanding the subject.  These books can be printed and handed out to others.

Canine Game Theory™ is still evolving. It now covers not only basic obedience, but foundation behaviors for dealing with a human world, behavior modification for shy dogs, aggressive and reactive dogs, snake avoidance, prey drive, and (my favorite) service, therapy and assistance dogs.

Canine Game Theory™ is easy to teach to new clients, both the furry and the skin type. The learning curve is nearly non-existent. You just play games. But the thing with teaching something new is that it takes COURAGE! It takes the same courage that astronauts have, top athletes, innovators in all walks of life and the person who starts a corner café in the middle of a war torn country.

Functional Agility
Functional Training has been around for a long time in the human fitness world, in and out of favor. I remember when I was on the swim team in the 60's and how it seemed that every year something would change in the fundamental exercises, we would do to improve our speed, strength and stroke. Many times, it would fall out of favor to what appeared to be the smoother paved roads that promised faster and easier results. This deviation from the functional and the fundamental almost always led to an increase in injuries and failures.

The Dark Cloud
This book covers all the environmental toxins and bio hazards that can be detected by a dog so far. This area of detection training is very new and still growing. Today I learned that dogs have been trained to detect leaks in the water supply pipes.

Codifying this area of detection training is vital. With COVID and the possibility of more pandemics, and the increase in diseases, conditions and syndromes that can be traced back to manufactured environments

A Path To Motivation
In the world of human psychology there is Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and several people have taken this hierarchy and tried to apply it to dogs and dog training.

What actually does a dog (or most any animal) need? Without mixing in human control, emotions or considerations; what can a dog achieve past basic survival? What motivates a dog to continue to share life with humans, live in a human world and learn what is needed to be learned?


Apartment Living and Creative Exercise
Running. Jumping. Playing. Problem solving. Dogs live for this stuff!
Exercise—for both mind AND body—should be fun for you and your dog.

Over 100 exercises are available for those who cannot for whatever reason, walk or run their dog every single day for long enough to satisfy the dog's needs.
