More About This Book

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.

    Great primer for those rescuing, adopting or otherwise providing a previously domiciled Dog a welcoming new forever home.

    A great resource for anyone seeking to educate themselves and consider the unique needs, emotional considerations and mindsets of older and established Dogs who may later in life find their forever homes. Provided in a simple and easy to read format, canine behavior and psychology is discussed in an easily digestible and approachable manner, context and progression. As the author mentions that every chapter could each encompass its own book, an excellent job is done condensing the high points of areas of concern along with helpful hints and clues into canine behavior making transition into a new home and environment all the less stressful for pet and pet parent. A must read resource and starting point for anyone either considering opening their heart and home to an older Dog or whom has already brought their new family member home and seeks to make the transition as positive as possible. If you can read this before bringing your new older pet home, all the better - as your new Dog will most certainly thank you! The book is an invaluable resource on understanding the needs of your older pet whose prior background may or may not be known to you and how patience and empathy are crucial to building the lasting foundation for a harmonious bond between you both. While the book is geared towards both experienced Dog owners and newbies, anyone with an interest in dealing with older adopted Dogs in general or anyone volunteering in an animal shelter can benefit from the insights and suggestions presented in this book.
