Why Rules, Boundaries and Limitations are Key

November 2nd, 2007

A person who decided to be a pet dog owner thought that sharing their lives with their pet mutt is easy as pie. Pet dog owning is more than following law regulations and requirements for pet owning. Neither is responsible pet owning measured by how much cool stuff your pet dog has. Pet owners, future and present, must understand that keeping your pet healthy and balanced is the main thrust of dog owning.

To be able to fulfill that responsibility to your pet dog, a pet owner sets rules, limitations and boundaries which your pet dog has to live with. To make this possible, we have learned that dogs are ruled by their ‘pack mentality’. Knowing the frame of mind of every dog in the world is the first step for universal respect and deeper connection between owner and pet.

You are a pet owner, that makes you the ‘pack leader’ and it is expected of you to be “calm-assertive” leaders. Being a “calm-assertive” leader, it is expected of you NEVER to project: nervousness, panic and tension. Since pet owning is never confined to a particular gender, so a ‘pack leader’ can be either a man or woman or neuter. Never let your gender affect your being the “calm-assertive” entity you are in your dog’s life.

Communication with your pet dog can be likened to dance choreography where no words need pass through anyone just the energy and movement. Your pet dog is led to correct behavior through your pack leadership. Correct behavior is the result of your asserting calm control over your pet dog or dogs. The ability to handle multiple dogs is possible when a pet owner understands and fully appreciates their role as “pack leader”. An effective calm-assertive energy results when the rest of the pack responds in a calm-submissive energy. In the exchange of energy, a pack achieves its balance.

Consider the basic learning cycle of a puppy from the womb until 8 weeks; even before they are born pups are sensitive to touch. Once out of the womb, pups get to be sensitive to smell even before they are able to see anything. A mother dog with several blind pups about, assumes and retains control over the litter by setting limitations, boundaries and rules. Pups are reprimanded and corrected by the mother’s calm-assertiveness, showing no favors and no patience to unwanted behavior. As the pups grow, they are still under the mother dog’s control, and never exempt from corrections in form of nips, growls or aggressive stance by the mother. All corrections vary in intensity, but all is centered to the retention of ‘pack leadership’ of the dam over her pups.

To understand your pet dog, you must accept that it is and always be an animal. Human psychology does not work on pet dogs, no confirmations of any theories were affirmed by pets that had undergone “treatment”. By nature, a mechanism called ‘pack mentality’ is innate in all dog breeds. Pack dynamics are nature’s fail-safe guide to the development and adult lives of pet dogs. Pet dogs that have no calm-assertive pack leader to guide it become unstable and difficult to live with.

As humans, understanding pack dynamics is easy and we possess the ability to replicate it on our pet dogs. Treating your pet dog using this enables us to connect with our pets on a primal level.

Do away with the urge to cuddle your pet out of the blue, if you care for your pet. Being the pack leader in your pets eyes has no pause button. A pack leader shows a calm-assertive manner to pet dogs 24/7. Feeding and sharing affection with your pet may be done AFTER your pet’s mind has become calm-submissive. Calm assertiveness is not effective without calm submissiveness. If your dogs ignores you or rarely exhibits submissiveness means your role as a pack leader is not established. A pet dog with an attitude problem basically does not see a proper pack leader. Once a pet dog is in this situation, it will try to be the pack leader. Being aware of your role as the pets pack leader will save pet owners on pet accessories that promise an obedient dog.

Your pup has always been ‘calm submissive’ by its mother’s training and control. The dam has an overall authority to dictate when the pups can wander away from the den, when it is time to eat, when they must walk and when rough play is enough.

By establishing a “do and don’t” system the mother dog has set the standard ‘pack leadership’ the pups are used to. Keep this in mind as you get to see your pup for the first time, project a ‘calm-assertive’ manner for the pup to recognize you as the new pack leader.

Audio Books and Their Rising Popularity

October 20th, 2007

The advent of the computer brought about a change in the way people read their books and when in the 80s big publishing companies found it expedient to capture their hottest selling books in digital form, the first audio books were born, which has since undergone many changes and caught on with the buying public as well. In fact, today you will find many more people turning to purchasing audio books than in the past, and there has been an almost constant improvement in sales of such books.

In fact, of late it has even galvanized the bigger publishing companies into simply hiring many celebrities into recording their thoughts using the medium of the computer, which has led to an even greater demand for audio books. And, along with MP3 as well as the technology behind the Internet, audio books have become even more popular and their popularity are at an all time high without in anyway showing signs of slowing down. There no doubts that the future of the audio books industry will continue to remain bright as well as strong in the years to come.

Now, celebrities are endorsing audio books and websites are mushrooming that allow users to download audio books, which has caused a veritable move towards more people turning back to reading books and that also includes children who are particularly enamored by audio books made especially for their needs.

Today’s generation has now found in the audio books a new staple diet on which to grow up in and it has also seen the audio books becoming a valuable tool in education, especially in colleges since it allows for covering more topics in lesser amount of time. Another great advantage of the audio books that has been with it since its very earliest days is its value to blind readers, and today, there are many magazine publications that solely cater to the needs of blind readers and so are providing a very useful service.

With the iPod becoming more popular, audio books should also be contributing to higher sales of iPods, and the holiday season will probably see the most such sales. With iPods, people are able to listen to their favorite author through audio books even when they are on the go, and it is with them almost everywhere they go. It is thus not uncommon to see people jogging while having their iPod along to keep them interested in the latest novel that is available as an audio book.

Self-help audio books are an especially popular kind of audio book and using such material allows you to improve your life and take advantage of the lectures given by experts without needing to physically read the contents.

Doctor Who

October 19th, 2007

Patrick Troughton battles to save mankind in this classic six-part ‘lost’ television adventure, with linking narrstion by Frazer Hines.

‘It’s down there. In the darkness. In the pipeline. Waiting .’

The TARDIS brings the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria to the south coast of present-day Earth. Something nasty is lurking in the gas pipelines of the North Sea, and before long the nearby refinery is under attack.

Landing on a foam-covered beach, the travellers are at first mistaken for saboteurs. A number of the refinery personnel have been behaving strangely, and the base chief, Robson, is showing serious signs of stress. Meanwhile Maggie Harris, having been stung by a mysterious frond of sea vegetation, is menaced by the sinister engineers Oak and Quill.

As sentient foam and weed combine to frightening effect, it soon becomes clear that the danger emanates from beneath the sea. Can that really be a heartbeat coming from deep inside the refinery pipes? Will the Doctor and his friends be in time to prevent an entire take-over of Earth – and will they all escape with their lives?

First broadcast in 1968, Fury from the Deep is the last story to feature Deborah Watling as the Doctor’s companion Victoria. Long missing from the television archives, it is regarded as a classic adventure from the era of the Second Doctor. Buy Doctor Who Audio Books at Audiobookquest.
