Description

A straightforward guide to welcoming a new dog home.

This book establishes a solid timeline for all the key decisions a new dog owner must make, whether adopting a puppy, an adult dog or a rescued dog.

Dr. Bruce Fogle provides his time-tested 20 Essential Tips for a Well-Behaved Dog and offers guidance on the 30 most popular breeds (including purebreds, crossbreeds and problem breeds). Careful attention is given to various concerns, such as allergies and urban, suburban and apartment living.

New Dog is packed with accurate, up-to-date information and wise counsel on a range of such topics as:

  • Where to find the right dog
  • Known inherited conditions
  • Temperament testing and good canine citizenship
  • Common problems: inappropriate chewing, aggression, boredom
  • Effective communication
  • Routine health care and choosing a vet
  • Expert training sequences to follow and practice
  • Traveling with dogs and choosing a kennel and a doggy daycare.

More than 300 commissioned color photographs, dozens of useful tips, and recent breakthroughs in veterinary science all make this the ideal guidebook for new dog owners.
