Overview

Voted “Best Soft-Cover Guide of 2011” by the Dog Writer's Association of America, this book tells you everything you need to know about welcoming an adolescent or adult dog into your family. We all know that older dogs present their own special joys and challenges; let this easy-to-read book turn your “new dog” into your “best dog ever!” By reading Love Has No Age Limit you will:

  • Understand how to let time and patience establish a new relationship
  • Know what to expect from your dog at 3 days, 3 weeks and 3 months
  • Know how to avoid overwhelming a new dog
  • Use positive training methods to get started on the right paw
  • Understand the difference between minor behavioral problems and more serious ones

Now what?! That's what many of us ask when looking into the face of a newly adopted dog. This book has the answers, from how to handle home-comings, what to do (and not do) the first day, week and month, why older dogs still need to be house trained the minute you bring them home, and why it can take time for some dogs to bond with you. Every puppy is a new dog, BUT not every new dog is a puppy. Bringing home a mature dog requires faith and patience, and you can count on McConnell and London to be there with you every step of the way. Included is a summary of common behavioral problems like separation anxiety, house training, chewing, resource guarding, fear-based behavior and trouble between dogs along with an extensive resource section on where to find more help if you need it.
