Animal Body Language is part of the R.U.F.F. Program, innovative animal based teaching. This curriculum was developed after children were bitten by dogs running around Chinle. One little boy ended up with a scar from the top of his forehead angled down to his chin. He had crawled under a trailer and tried to pet a dog and was savagely bitten in the face. This small boy had his life forever changed from this horrible incident. Something had to be in the schools to help the children understand more about dog behavior to avoid incidents like this. This curriculum is complete and has thematic unit tie-ins in social studies, language, behavior, safety issues, reading, art, writing and drama. There are suggested student activities that involve games, quizzes, animal behavior board set-up ideas, journal and creative writing. Animals helped extrapolate expressions of emotions and incorporated self-esteem where all else had failed. It teaches responsible behavior that proved extremely effective.

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
