An increasing number of people in our country today acknowledge the fact that there is an enormous crisis in the field of early child care. The first chapter of this book examines the major reasons for the crisis and why the economic reality for most American households will cause the problem to continue to grow in the coming years. Following this, the second chapter discusses the criteria of a good early child care setup, based on professional literature in the field and the author's experience. The remainder of the book addresses the serious problem that most day-care workers are very poorly trained for their jobs. Six chapters are devoted to providing a practical guide for people who work with young children. They discuss, from current research in the field but without using technical language, current practical methods of working with children-at-risk or those who may potentially be at-risk. The focus is on working with children in groups, helping day-care workers and substitute parents to minimize or remediate the at-risk factor in the children in their care. The book also addresses parents of these children and emphasizes the need for cooperation between day-care workers and them so that child care providers can effectively convey the skills presented here. There is also a chapter on approaches to working with special children, such as children with autism, and those with physical or neurological impairments. This informative and sensitive book will be useful in advancing the training of workers in infant and early child care settings.

The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is a large breed of dog that was developed in the Swiss Alps. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is believed to be a product of mating the indigenous dog breeds found in the Swiss Alps with large mastiff types who were brought to Switzerland by foreign settlers. The breed is a member of the Sennenhund typing and is considered to be the largest and most ancient of the four breeds. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog was originally used as an all-purpose farm dog. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog was considered to be one of the most popular breeds within Switzerland but almost died out during the late 19th century due to the fact that all of the breed's duties were being performed by other breeds of dog or machines. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog has a large heavy-boned physique with immense physical strength but is relatively agile which allowed it to easily complete any farm worked that it was tasked with. The temperament of dogs is normally affected by the following factors: individual personality, heredity, training and socialization. It is therefore important to make sure that you meet the puppy's mother before purchasing a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. It is also important to make sure to thoroughly socialize your Greater Swiss Mountain Dog with strangers, children and other animals during its puppyhood. Generally speaking, the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is sociable, affectionate, clam and dignified. The breed is also relatively healthy and tends to suffer dramatically less ailments that tend to hinder other large breeds of dog. It is important to note that as a working breed, the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog has a high amount of energy which needs to be expended. If the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog has a buildup of energy it is likely to develop destructive behaviors due to boredom or hyperactivity. The breed has a tricolored (black, white and tan) double coat. The breed's coat can range in length and texture from short, fine and straight to wavy, long and coarse. Before purchasing any pet it is important to understand that as a pet owner you are responsible for the care and wellbeing of your pet. It is important to try and learn as much as you can about the animal you are considering to keep as a pet to make sure that your lifestyle, household and financial status are suited to provide your pet with the best possible care. This guide has been designed to provide you with both precise and concise information about a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog's basic needs to help you provide your pet with the best quality care practices. This guide will give an in-depth explanation on training your Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, raising your Greater Swiss Mountain Dog from a puppy, grooming, health care and everything in between!

Shaping the Wolf Within Your Dog is a comparison study of wolf and dog behavior. It is also a comprehensive guide for living in harmony with dogs. We know dogs are genetically related to the wolf; and both exhibit identical instincts, behaviors, temperaments, and dispositions - and both abide to the law of nature that contends: for any animal grouping to survive, there must be social order and communication between its members. Knowing this, we should learn all we can about wolf behavior, and incorporate that knowledge with our dogs. By learning how pack animals establish social order and communicate with one another, we can use this information to shape our dogs' natural instincts, without having to use food bribes or violence. When we communicate in our dogs' language, we will be able to communicate our leadership. The outcome will be predictable, for we will be using the same methods of an alpha wolf when he establishes and maintains social order with a pack of wolves. We will be shaping the same wolf instincts that are intact and engaged in each of our dogs. Shaping the Wolf Within Your Dog illuminates: The natural behavior of canines The language of canines How alphas lead their packs How alphas discipline and show affection The hierarchy of the wolf social order The natural friendliness, loyalty, and devotion of pack members How to pick the best pup from a litter How to establish social order with pups Basic obedience and off lead obedience Family protection training
