Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this book to perhaps find some new dog stores and dog parks, but this book was severely lacking in this information. I know of several dog parks in Massachusetts (which are rare, but there are a few) and this book didn't list even one of them. For a book that says on the cover it has dog park listings, this is not acceptable. If you want to know of places to go in New England, you best be asking the locals by looking up a local pet store in the phone directory and calling. If you'll be in the Boston area (a larger area than what this book calls 'Greater Boston'), get the 'City Dog' book.
