Overview

NOW, AT LAST, YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR DOG
You think your life is crazy. Try looking at the world through your dog's big melting brown eyes. If your dog is neurotic (and what dog isn't these days?), consider these helpful pointers:
• Don't interrupt your dog's naps—remember, he needs your bed far more than you do.
• Don't force your dog to play fetch just because you feel like it—keep in mind his busy schedule too.
• Never bark orders at your dog. "Please" and "thank you" work wonders with the neurotic dog.
• Give your dog a canine personality quiz—it's the first step before starting him on full-fledged psychoanalysis.
• If all else fails, feed him!

Stephen Baker's delightful HOW TO LIVE WITH A NEUROTIC DOG is sure to have both you and your canine companion rolling on the floor and begging for more.

This revised edition of a humor classic offers more than 100 hilarious drawings along with advice for people trying to live with a neurotic dog.

    Neurotic Dog Owner

    The five star rating tells it all. I hope that the next dog that I own will be as neurotic as the dog in your book.

    Great Book a must read

    How to live with a neurotic dog is a must read. It tells you how to live in peace with your dog: Buy him lots of stuff, Let him SLEEP, and Do not buy a cat. This Book has the answers: How many dogs are neurotic? What's Hot in dog Fashion? How do you give your dog a bath? Can the Neurotic dog be cured?

    I like the book. My dog loves it.

    No, this is not a manual for dealing with a real neurotic dog. Yes, I have a neurotic dog. No, I did not get the book as a guide to living with a neurotic dog. This is a funny book with wonderful illustrations. I recommend it as a pleasant reading with several really good laughs. If you decide to take it seriously (don't) it will lead you to several conclusions about neurotic dogs. They are going to takeover your house. They are going to maximize their comfort. They are going to sleep about 23 hours a day. You can't do much to regain control over the situation. Baker has good insight into losing the battle to train neurotic dogs. Hilliard's illustrations demonstrate that neurotic dogs just can't be managed. So give in, sit back and read a neat little humorous book that delightfully guides you to understanding that you don't have a chance against a neurotic dog.
