Overview


Celebrating the most friendly, talented, and affectionate dog on the planet, the Golden Retriever, this Smart Owner’s Guide, created by the editors at Dog Fancy magazine, offers the most up-to-date and accurate information every dog owner needs to become a well-informed caregiver for his dog. Illustrated with color photographs of adorable puppies and handsome adults, this easy-to-read primer is designed in a modern, lively manner that readers will find user-friendly and entertaining.

Each Smart Owner’s Guide offers a description of the breed’s character and physical conformation, historical overview, and its attributes as a companion dog. The reader will find informative chapters on everything he or she needs to know about acquiring, raising, and training this remarkable purebred dog, including: finding a breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy; preparing for the puppy’s homecoming, shopping for supplies, and puppy-proofing the home; house-training; veterinary and home health maintenance; feeding and nutrition; and grooming. Obedience training for basic cues (sit, stay, heel, come, etc.) and solving potential problem behaviors (barking, chewing, aggression, jumping up, etc.) are addressed in separate chapters, as are activities to enjoy with the dog, including showing, agility, therapy work, and more.

Entertaining tidbits and smart advice fill up colorful sidebars in every chapter, which the editors call “It’s a Fact,” “Smart Tip,” “Notable & Quotable,” and “Did You Know?” Real-life heroes and rescue stories are retold in full-page features called “Pop Pups” and “True Tails.” Recipes, training, and care tips are highlighted in the “Try This” feature pages.

The Smart Owner’s Guide series is the only series that offers readers an online component in which dog owners can join a breed-specific online club hosted by dogchannel.com. At Club Gold, owners of the breed can find forums, blogs, and profiles to connect with other breed owners, as well as charts and checklists that can be downloaded. More than just 20,000 pages of solid information, there’s a host of fun to be had at the club in the form of downloadable breed-specific e-cards, screensavers, games, and quizzes.

The Resources section of the book includes contact information for breed-related organizations and rescues, as well as practical guidance on traveling with dogs, identification, and locating qualified professionals to assist the dog owner, such as pet sitters, trainers, and boarding facilities. This information-packed Smart Owner’s Guide is fully indexed.

    Ow ow ow ;P But if I'm here when she says she loves Alex I'll lose it. I already know the answer and... and I'm scared. I hate hurting. I promise I'll never love anyone ever again :( I'm hurting too much and I hate it. You pull me away from her when you take me to her.

    Serpentfang

    She hasn't SAID. But I don't want this... How this is going is what I NEVER wanted to happen. I'm sorry. I can't take it... It hurts WAY too much. I wanted her happy, but I'M making her cry right now. If I hadn't shown up she would still be happy. She would have forgotten me and when I came back no one would have had to hurt. Please... let her choose Alex... then it will be done. As long as she's happy :) No one has to hurt if she just chooses Alex. I shouldn't have came back. I'm sorry. When you move away you don't just move back after. It hurts you and everyone around you. I don't want to keep hurting over and over again. I'm not fighting for her to chose between us I'm fighting for her to chose to be happy.
