Adding a puppy to your household can be the experience of a lifetime, so it's not surprising that many pet owners repeat the process again and again. Convinced that getting a pooch shouldn't be a daunting task, coauthors Barnes and Brash have assembled a one-stop reference guide that covers everything from the first trip to the kennel to the terrible twos of doggie adolescence. The information on obedience training, exercise, and diet is especially useful for first-timers.
