'In the UK there are around eight million pet dogs, perhaps that is why they are thought of as man’s best friend. It has been proven that dogs are good for your health, they encourage you to exercise and dog owners suffer less stress. Owning a dog can sometimes be a bewildering experience full of decisions affecting your pet’s welfare, for example, micro-chipping, vaccinations and pet insurance. This handy practical guide will address all of these issues from a puppy-aged pet right through to old-age.
The puppy years are well covered, including puppy-proofing your home, diet, toilet training, vaccinations and other vet treatments, training and socialising. Small, medium and large breeds are catered for, along with feeding and exercise advice for older dogs, doggy first aid for basic cuts and scrapes, how to administer tablets and medication and what to do in the event of different symptoms of illness.
Dangerous foods, fleas and ticks, taking your dog on holiday, the law regarding your dog and common behavioural problems are all covered, making this book the most user-friendly and imformative guide on the subject.'
