From the Back Cover:

If you are looking for -- or already have, as I do -- the joy of canine companionship, then look to this book! It is full of up-to-date information and advice about choosing and caring for a dog, all especially tailored for those of us who have passed the half-century mark. There is no other book like it.
Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, dog lover extraordinaire, first elected to Congress in 1953 and the longest-serving member of the US Congress.

Dogs make us feel good with their unconditional love, but did you know they're good for you? Numerous studies document the benefits of dog ownership - antidotes to depression, loneliness, high blood pressure, and heart disease. And of all age groups, it's people over 50 who stand to benefit the most from living with a canine. That's why The 50+ Dog Owner is chock full of easily accessible advice tailored specifically for anyone over 50 who wants - or may already have - the companionship of a dog.

This book provides information and advice about choosing and caring for a dog, with a special emphasis on services and products that make it easy to match your lifestyle with canine companionship.

From the Inside Flap:

Anyone over age 50 who is contemplating life with-or already lives with-a dog is special within the dog-owning community. A dog may fill a nest emptied by departing children, comfort a surviving spouse, re-energize a recent retiree, or simply continue a long tradition of human-canine relationships. And the questions and concerns for the 50+ dog owner are different from those of other owners. You may worry that you cannot exercise your dog enough, take him with you on your travels, keep him well groomed, drive him to the veterinarian - or even hook and unhook a leash.

The 50+ Dog Owner will help you identify and evaluate these concerns and then show how simple it can be to surmount or detour around them. You'll find out how to find a dog who perfectly matches your lifestyle and then discover practical and easy ways to care for your canine companion - all tailored specifically for the 50+ set. Plus, at the end of each chapter a "Resources Made Easy" section will guide you to helpful items and services and throughout the book, "Money-$aving Tip" sidebars will help keep your budget balanced.
