Valuable dog facts, insightful tips, and quick and easy mini-projects—including everything from homemade dog biscuits to fun games that make for a happy indoor dog—are also included.

From the Publisher

“This guide allows dog lovers to put their DIY skills to use. Strother (The Complete Guide to Dream Bathrooms) outlines a variety of appealing projects, from doghouses and training equipment to bedding and accessories (the nightstand/dog bed is adorable). This book recycles a few projects from 24 Weekend Projects for Pets from the publisher’s “Black & Decker” series, yet Strother’s section on dog-proofing the yard and repairing doggy damage sets this guide apart. An attractive project book that caters to a passionate audience; recommended.”

“After reading this book, I'm eager to dig out my tools and start building -- and I don't even have dog!”
