Max Hall - "Made in Britain"

First Travelled the Iditarod Trail as a "tourist" with Joe Redington's first "Iditarod Challenge" in 1993. Ran the Knik 200 & Copper Basin 300 and his first Iditarod in 1995 in extreme conditions.
Scratched in 1997 after going through the ice. Returned in 1999 finishing 37th, gaining the fastest time for an English Musher and the Sterling Achievement award. Returned to run the Millennium Iditarod in 2000. To complete this race as a foreigner, who has commitments in his home country, is no easy task and substantial support from a persevering wife, so many thoughtful Alaskans, Shapachka Kennels & Swingley Race Team, Montana have been fundamental in making these race finishes possible.

This book is absolutely essential reading for anyone who works with dogs, for anyone who breeds dogs and indeed, for any owners who want to know more about how their pet dogs came to share their lives.

The Culture Clash - Jean Donaldson

photo of The Culture Clash - Jean Donaldson

A revolutionary new way of understanding the relationship between humans and domestic dogs. The most thought-provoking book ever written.

Generations of dogs have been labeled training-lemons for requiring actual motivation when all along they were perfectly normal. Numerous other completely and utterly normal dogs have been branded as canine misfits simply because they grew up to act like dogs. Barking, chewing, sniffing, licking, jumping up, and occasionally, (just like people), having arguments, is as normal and natural for dogs as wagging tails and burying bones. However, all dogs need to be taught how to modify their normal and natural behaviours to adjust to human culture. Sadly, all too often, when the dog's way of life conflicts with human rules and standards, many dogs are discarded and summarily put to death. That's quite the Culture Clash.

Simply the best dog book I have ever read. The Culture Clash is utterly unique, fascinating to the extreme and literally overflowing with oodles of useful, how-to information. Jean Donaldson's refreshing new perspective on the relationship between people and dogs has redefined the state of the art of dog-friendly dog training. - Dr. Ian Dunbar, Founder of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.

A must book for every Sled Dog Driver and would-be Dog Musher.

This book gives a dog musher the information he needs to become a winner. Whether you race dogs or not, it's the best information on sled dogs there is, period. I was really impressed. - Gareth Wright

This is a great book. Both beginner and pro alike can gain from it. I've read most of the books about mushing. This one ranks with the best of them. - Eddy Streeper

Exceptional.... Comprehensive yet succinct. A much needed manual that should be on the book shelf of every musher and dog sport enthusiast. - Harris Dunlap

Once you start winning, sometimes you start thinking you know everything and forget the things that got you there. This book helped remind me of things that a dog musher has got to remember to keep winning. I think this book would be helpful and informative for anyone, no matter what stage of dog mushing they're at. Even for myself, it was a really good refresher. It's the most advanced and up-to-date book of it's kind. - George Attla

Dr Lonsdale looks at the dietary needs of dogs from a dog's perspective taking account of Nature's teachings, easily understood science and sound common sense.
For dog's sake read this book. Your dog will be forever grateful.

Ann Martin's expose reveals the shocking truth about commercial pet food. This book is a must-read for all pet owners truly interested in the health of their animals.

Veterinarians should provide copies of this book for their clients, and everyone with a companion dog or cat should not be without it. Good nutrition is a cornerstone for health and disease prevention. Ann Martin documents how this cornerstone has been removed by the commercial pet food industry.
