9780876056097: The Mastiff: An Owner's Guideto a Happy Healthy Pet

This is our ninth set of Happy, Healthy Pet titles. Like the others, they are books that pet owners can turn to for the essential information they need to raise a happy, healthy pet. All books contain information on:

  • feeding
  • grooming
  • housing
  • health care
  • what to expect from the pet
  • basic training
As our series expands and focuses on different kinds of pets, the emphasis remains on making the pet a companion.Owners of more unusual pets will particularly appreciate the expert advice in these books because professional care for exotic animals can be hard to come by. As always, the instruction in the books is from experts (people who know their pets intimately but always remember what it was like to have one the first time).

Happy, Healthy Pet guides are rich with professional quality color photos and are designed to be enjoyable and easy to learn from. If you're a first time Mastiff owner, or are thinking of making one of these big dogs a part of your life, then this beginner's guide is perfect for you! With tips on grooming, feeding, training and much more, this book will help you ensure that your pet remains both happy and healthy!
