Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The definition of "having it all"-home, career, family, and social life-has been expanded to include dog ownership. Moore, a dog-training expert, and Ackerman, a veterinarian and prolific writer for the popular and professional pet audience, have combined their talents to present a comprehensive guide for today's busy person who wants to enjoy the companionship of a dog. In a breezy, easy-to-understand style, the authors cover selecting an appropriate breed; meeting the dog's nutritional, safety, and health needs; using positive training methods for housebreaking and obedience; interviewing and hiring pet sitters; keeping the dog active; finding pet-friendly living accommodations; traveling with the dog; and, finally, finding a good adoptive home if the owner must give up the dog. Also included are a bibliography and a listing of web resources. Illustrated with appealing photographs, which is to be expected from the publisher of Dog Fancy magazine, this is a good choice for libraries needing a current, popular, complete, and attractive guide with a unique point of view.-Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll.
