Clever Dog by Ryan O’Meara Becomes First For Publisher

Publisher Hubble and Hattie have announced Clever Dog: Life Lessons From Man's Best Friend (by K9 Magazine publisher Ryan O'Meara) as their first foray in to the eBook market.

They say:

Our recently-published book about man's best friend, the clever canine, and what we can learn from him in order to enhance and improve our lives, has been so well received, and is such a great read, that we decided to make it the very first of our Hubble and Hattie titles to be available as an eBook. We are particularly proud that the conversion to eBook was done entirely in-house at Veloce. Initially, the Clever Dog! eBook is available only for Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch), and is downloadable via the iBooks app, which will also allow sample pages to be viewed. Although the eBook costs less than the physical book, its content is identical, and so represents excellent value for money!

The dog is undeniably the most successful domestic animal of all time. He shares his life with ours, has integrated into our society, and won the hearts and minds of millions of us.
We call ourselves dog lovers because we do sincerely love them: they are fully-fledged members of our family, and we have elevated them to positions of authority in the human world. Assistance dogs, protection dogs, detection dogs, companion dogs … they all enhance our lives immeasurably.

In this book we will examine a whole raft of canine skills and talents, and try to piece together how and why the dog has enjoyed such immense success as a domesticated animal.

We will look at the dog as a problem solver, conflict resolver, and health asset. As a decision maker and hero. And as a loyal and trusted friend.
Clever Dog! is a compendium of life lessons we can learn from our dogs, based on a combination of what we know about them and – indeed – what we think we might know about them.

He's earned his epithet ‘Man's best friend:' in this book, our aim is to examine how he did it and how we might emulate his talents in order to enjoy the same fortune and fulfilment in our lives.

Be happy and successful: learn from the best!
