Publisher's Summary

Dogs for Dummies, 2nd Edition is for you if you are looking to adopt a dog, trying to improve the relationship with the one you have, or attempting to come up with fun things to do with your canine companion. This book is also for people who want to choose the right veterinarian; explore the dog-breeding business; find breed-rescue groups; identify canine health problems; and look for a purebred.

It's a "doggy-dog" world, and this easy-to-use guide will help you navigate it. Improve your chances at pet success by knowing how to raise and live with your dog properly. Discover which breed best suits your lifestyle, and if a puppy or adult dog is best for you. Dogs for Dummies, 2nd Edition also covers the following topics and more: caring for an aging dog; choosing collars, harnesses, halters, and leashes; considering euthanasia; feeding Fido the right way; house training puppies and adult dogs; keeping up appearances with good grooming; participating in canine competitions; preparing your dog for a disaster; and traveling with your dog.

Award-winning author Gina Spadafori says the lack of accurate information - not the lack of effort or concern - is often the reason for doomed people-pet pairings. With her help, you can avoid the agony. Dogs for Dummies, 2nd Edition is full of useful tips and how-to advice.

Great info- subpar narration

The content is so informative. Unless you're known by everyone as the local dog expert, you need this book. It should be required reading for every dog owner. The narrator is a bit dry and has odd diction. I'm still giving it five stars because it's that useful. I'm going to get the physical book next so I can refer to it as needed.
