    Dogs need to encounter and overcome physical and mental challenges to remain happy and well. Unless this fundamental need is met, the dog will be inert and passive and may develop behavioural problems. It is therefore every dog-owner's duty to arrange appropriate stimulation for their dog. The reward is a happy and balanced companion who is permitted to express its specific behaviour and who has a close and harmonious relationship with humans. In this book, Anders Hallgren describes simple exercises designed to stimulate and improve your dog's senses. It is not vital that the dog learns to perform these tasks perfectly, but to challenge its mind and intelligence.

    Oluwo Philip Neimark, author of The Way of The Orisa, The Sacred Ifa Oracle and the Energy Matrix of Ifa, has chosen a path less traveled. Initiated into Santeria/Lukumi and subsequently finding the "root" religion of Ifa into which he was also initiated, he has constantly pushed the bubble to keep Ifa/Orisha relevant.Stripping away the Western incursions on this Eastern philosophy, he has forced initiates to examine their world view not as something fixed and immobile, but as something that takes its ancient truths and weaves them into the social, political,environmental situations of today's world. The result is a dynamic LIVING philosophy whose Truths have absolute relevance and whose applications have no end.
