Summary

Discover Budapest from its most authentic side!
 
Unlike regular travel-guide authors, we’re locals and lovers of Budapest. We want to show YOU Budapest just like we show it to our best friends. Our city is our passion and so is our guidebook. It’s a genuine project of our hearts and so much more than just a quick “overview” of the Hungarian capital.
 
We’ve seen the changes Budapest has undergone from the front row. We’ve seen the tourist waves getting bigger and bigger with each year, “hotspots” rise and fall, the mindset of the locals changing and Budapest constantly opening up, becoming this booming, vibrant and colourful city it is today. Today, Budapest is often mischaracterized as a mere party city with only cheap booze. Most visitors never make it past that image because they get caught up in the tourist bubble and miss out on so many more things the city has to offer.
 
Here we share all of our knowledge about what Budapest truly has to offer – it’s most authentic spots and experiences. This guidebook will help you peel back the multiple layers of Budapest.
 
It’s written for conscious travellers and explorers. For those who are looking for more than just a glimpse at the main tourist attractions.
 
For those who want to not only see, but also feel the city and experience how it lives, plays, works, eats, drinks and functions.
 
It features countless little gems for you to discover while strolling the city streets – be it a hidden courtyard, a secret bar, a colourful garden, an offbeat flea market, or a stunning piece of street art.
 
We’ve also included day trips and walking routes for perfect days full of new discoveries and created a directory and a map for those moments in which you just need quick info. Unlike usual tourist guides, this book will encourage you to experience Budapest as if you’d lived here for years.
 
It's a declaration of unconditional love for a city that is constantly evolving, has a thousand faces and never fails to delight and entertain.

    The Ultimate American Pit Bull...

    Congratulations! You own or are about to own one of the most distinguished breeds of the twentieth century, the American Pit Bull Terrier. Your dog is automatically feared and respected by other people, and it's up to you to be his caretaker and ambassador. 
    This book will help you do both-and more. In the caretaking department, The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier will tell you everything you need to know about feeding your dog from puppyhood to old age. It will explain grooming essentials, like trimming toenails, cleaning ears, checking teeth, brushing and bathing. It will describe basic health concerns, from vaccination schedules to flea control to what to do in an emergency. 
    As for being an ambassador for your breed, The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier will tell you all sorts of fun facts about the Pit Bull's history so you can boast about your dog and help people understand him for who he really is. Did you know The Little Rascals' devoted companion, Petey, was a Pit Bull? Or that the Pit Bull was the symbol of American strength and courage during World War I? It's true; the Pit Bull was once the all-American dog, a companion cherished for his excellent way with children, his playfulness and his doggy demeanor. In most homes, he still is. But it's also true that today Pit Bulls are associated more with crime than with companionship. 
    The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier celebrates the breed for the kind of dog it is with the right owners. A dog with physical and mental stature whose intelligence, charm and energy make him a superb friend, fellow athlete and playmate.A Howell Dog Book of Distiction

    Norwegian dog trainer and behaviorist Turid Rugaas is a noted expert on canine body language, notably “calming signals,” which are signals dogs use to avoid conflict, invite play, and communicate a wide range of information to other dogs and people. These are the dogs' attempt to defuse situations that otherwise might result in fights or aggression.
     
    Companion DVD, 'Calming Signals: What Your Dog Tells You,' DTB788, is also available. The DVD shows footage of many calming signals, how dogs use them, and how you can use them to calm your dog. 
     
    • Learn to identify situations that are stressful to your dog so that you can resolve or avoid them.
     
    • Rehabilitate a dog that has lost her ability to read or give calming signals.
     
    • Become a keen observer of canine behavior at home, in the community, and among dogs to get better behavior and build a solid relationship.
     
    • This new edition has outstanding photographs with captions interpreting what you observe
     
    Experts praise Turid's work
     
    Invaluable! The insightful observations of Turid Rugaas can help all of us have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with our dogs. This beautifully illustrated book belongs in the home of dog lovers everywhere.
     
    Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D. author, The Other End of the Leash, Cautious Canine, Feeling Outnumbered and more
     
    I personally owe Turid a great debt because her work validated my observations that dogs are trying very hard to ‘talk' to us. This book was my guide and added amazing volume to my knowledge base. Her book provided the confidence to continue watching and interpreting. What a lovely gift! 
     
    Brenda Aloff author of Aggression In Dogs and Canine Body Language, A Photographic Guide
     
    This new revised edition is a “must have!” Even if you own the previous edition the photos and examples along with the writing are worth it. Turid has a wonderful gift of making everything so easy to understand and relate to…(she has made) an enormous contribution to mankind in our ever-increasing knowledge of “man's best friend”—our dogs.
