This is an update of the classic work, The Urban Dog, fully revised to take into account new concerns and research that have come to light since the book was first published by Bantam in the mid-1980s. The book provides expert tips on selecting a dog appropriate for your lifestyle, as well as caring for its maximum health and well being. It shows you how to accommodate your dog comfortably in a small space, how to provide the best exercise in a limited amount of space and time, how to spot mental and physical health problems, and how to make life for yourself and your canine companion as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. There is information on the different needs of different breeds, advice on adopting from shelters, suggestions on urban etiquette for walking and cleaning up after your dog,and for what to do when meeting other dogs with their human companions.
Illustrated with pictures of dogs interacting with other dogs, people, and the city around them, City Dog is an invaluable guide for any city dweller who lives, or hopes to live, with a canine companion.
