Revised, expanded, and redesigned, this handy paperback edition is loaded with irresistible photos and easy-to-implement tips for raising a happy, healthy, well-mannered dog, no matter what the breed or environment.

Every dog owner wants to communicate better with his or her pet, insuring the well-being of both dog and owner. This inspiring book has great tricks and ideas for dog owners of all kinds, from the first-timer to the lifelong pet owner—and its combination of simple, practical tips with delightful photos and inspiring stories of real dogs makes for a little book that has everything.

A self-described "dog listener," Anne Bobby has translated her deep animal intuition and extensive experience into 75 easy-to-follow tips written from the point of view of the dog addressing the owner. They cover the most common questions and dilemmas dog-owners face, from figuring out the healthiest snacks to how to introduce a dog to the new baby, to how to instill proper "petiquette" at the dog run. Each tip is illustrated by a photo from well-known animal photographer Jim Dratfield, making the book as "gifty" and adorable as it is practical.

Anne Bobby has put the answers to all of your questions inside this book—along with lots of great tips and ideas for being a great dog-owner and owning a great dog!

Among other things, you’ll find out:
· Why it is so important to TALK to me, and why a leash is my "life line."
· How to give me my medicine, and when it might be time to call the vet.
· How to help me adjust to my new home, and to YOUR new baby.
· How neutering adds years to my life—and so does exercise.
· The best games and toys for me, and the treats that will make me jump for joy.


There's lots more inside...all the stuff your dog really wants you to know—plus great photographs of all my friends.
