Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

LibraryJournal.com, March 15, 2011

“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.”
