    A Must Have

    What a great book! So informative and whitty! A definite must have if you own a dog or it makes a great gift for the holidays. Love the paws rating. A great book to give to out of towners who frequent the area often. A great housewarming gift for new neighbors from out of state.

    Dog-gone Good Book!

    Grrrr-eat field guide for exploring the Philly area with your pooch! Lists not only the dog-friendly city parks and places, but fully explores the neighborhoods and suburbs as well. Includes regular doggie events also. Great maps and restaurant recommendations, too. Index at the back lists doggie-friendly hotels!
