Rhodesian Ridgebacks beeindrucken uns durch ihre Athletik, ihr Auftreten und ihr Selbstverst„ndnis. Sie haben keinen ?will to please?, sondern fragen uns, was wir fr sie tun k”nnen. Der Hundehalter steht vor der Herausforderung, einen artgerechten Umgang mit dem Jagdinstinkt und der h„ufig auftretenden Skepsis gegenber allem Fremden zu finden. Das Wesen dieser Hunde sowie eine verst„ndnisvolle Erziehung und Besch„ftigung sind Thema dieses Buches. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt nicht auf den „uáerlichen, sondern den charakterlichen Merkmalen der Rasse. Insgesamt widmet sich die Autorin folgenden zentralen Punkten: Richtiges Verst„ndnis, harmonisches Zusammenleben, Erziehung durch Beziehung und artgerechte Besch„ftigung. Jan Nijboer (Natural Dogmanship©): ?Der Rhodesian Ridgeback kann nach Anwendung des in diesem Buch vermittelten Wissens eine Bereicherung fr jeden Mensch sein, der - wie der Ridgeback selbst -mehr Tiefgang in einer Beziehung sucht!?

Dog Training Basics

Founded around 1700 by a group of German Lutherans known as Pietists, the Halle Orphanage became the institutional headquarters of a universal seminar that still stands largely intact today. It was the base of an educational, charitable, and scientific community and consisted of an elite school for the sons of noblemen. Yet, its reputation as a Pietist enclave inhabited largely by young people has prevented the organisation from being taken seriously as a kind of scientific academy - even though, Kelly Joan Whitmer shows, this is precisely what it was. This book calls into question a long-standing tendency to view German Pietists as anti-science and anti-Enlightenment, arguing that these tendencies have drawn attention away from what was actually going on inside the orphanage.
