And I do. Yet another outrageous success by Patricia and Karen. I have always been a champion of adopting adult dogs and this book is most certainly a valuable resource for anyone welcoming an adult dog into their home. Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. Let Patricia and Karen show you how."<
