Obedience training for basic cues (sit, stay, heel, come, etc.) and solving potential problem behaviors (barking, chewing, aggression, jumping up, etc.) are addressed in separate chapters, as are activities to enjoy with the dog, including showing, agility, therapy work, and more.
Entertaining tidbits and smart advice fill up colorful sidebars in every chapter, which the editors call It’s a Fact,” Smart Tip,” Notable & Quotable,” and Did You Know?” Real-life heroes and rescue stories are retold in full-page features called Pop Pups” and True Tails.” Recipes, training, and care tips are highlighted in the Try This” feature pages.
