Gr 4-8

This well-organized and interesting manual covers grooming, health, training, exercise, communication, and more. It also provides excellent information that will help dog owners understand their pets. Whitehead discusses, and clearly shows in good-quality, full-color photographs, various canine emotions such as anger, contentment, fear, and playfulness, and highlights a variety of interactions with humans and with other dogs. The pictures aptly demonstrate both the emotional bonds between pups and their owners and training procedures. "Top Tips," "Dog Facts," checklists, and quizzes appear throughout. This title is a best in show for helping to develop more intuitive and knowledgeable young dog owners and appreciative pets.-Carol Schene, formerly at Taunton Public Schools, MA
