  • All about breeds and mixed breeds and how you can adopt any type of dog
  • Smart guidelines for adoption success
  • Realistic expenses of dog care
  • What to expect when you bring your new pup home (and long after)
  • How to prevent runaways and protect your dog from all types of harm
  • Clicker, target stick, and other re-training methods
  • Humane ways to modify undesirable behaviors
  • How to introduce new diets and take the guesswork out of feeding
  • Holistic and conventional medical treatments
  • Daily hygiene and caring for your sick pup inside and out
  • The impact of travel and changes at home
