9780974924526: Happy Hound: Develop a Great Relationship with Your Adopted Dog or Puppy

When you adopt a dog or puppy, you are thrust into a strange new world where you don't even speak the language. In Happy Hound, you'll learn solutions to everyday problems dog owners face. Unlike breed-specific or veterinary books, Happy Hound is tailored to the special needs and issues related to living with a rescued puppy or dog. Many shelters give you a packet of information, but especially at smaller shelters they just can't afford either the time or money to provide a lot of information. Happy Hound is designed to fill that need. Plus, if you've ever read a dog book where you wondered if the author ever even owned a dog, you'll find Happy Hound a refreshing change. The book is filled with sidebars and anecdotes about the antics of the author's gang of four dogs. You'll never be left feeling like your dog is "really different" from anything you've read. Even though every dog is special, no dog is perfect!

From the Publisher:

Happy Hound: Develop a Great Relationship with Your Adopted Dog or Puppy is a book that tells you what you need to know to raise a wonderful family pet you can live with for years. Unlike breed-specific or veterinary books, Happy Hound is tailored to the special needs and issues related to living with a rescued puppy or dog.

Unlike many books, Happy Hound doesn't give you hard and fast rules. Like people, dogs have good days and bad days. This book lets you know that it can be "okay" for your dog to sleep on your bed if you want. But it also explains when that might be a bad idea. Happy Hound is filled with practical tips and techniques for the average dog owner. It doesn't deal with competition, breeding, or creating the "perfect show dog." After reading the book, you probably won't suddenly become the world's greatest dog trainer, but you will become a more understanding and informed dog owner.

This book also gives you advice on when it's time to seek professional help. If your dog is doing something that is potentially dangerous, or is exhibiting signs of illness, Happy Hound tells you who you need to call to get help with your specific situation.

Author, Susan Daffron, is not only a dog owner, but has also worked as a veterinary technician and at animal shelters. She has been writing a newspaper column on pet care since 1998.

Dr. Marty Becker, syndicated columnist and resident veterinarian on Good Morning America says, "Happy Hound celebrates the joy and companionship of sharing your life with a rescued dog. It's filled with pet-care information and anecdotes; I found it passionate and practical!"

Happy Hound also gives you information on how to care for your new adopted friend with helpful tips on grooming, bathing, feeding, and keeping your happy hound healthy! The "pet adoption option" isn't always easy. Dogs aren't machines. But Happy Hound will show you how to raise a dog you can live with, understand, and love for a lifetime!

From the Author:

My name is Susan Daffron and I wrote this book after years of volunteering at animal shelters. I was frustrated by the lack of pet care information available just for people adopting pets.

This book grew out of newspaper columns I started writing in 1998. I wrote the pet care columns for free just because I was so distressed at how uninformed people were on basic pet care issues. I kept seeing wonderful pets returned to animal shelters simply because their owners didn't have access to good information on care and behavior. The column was extremely popular and grew into an email newsletter, web site, and now books. I hope you enjoy reading Happy Hound and it helps you live a long and happy life with your own happy hound!
