Choosing the perfect dog can be confusing, especially for first-time owners....
It's easy to fall in love with a breed and rush into buying a gorgeous Border collie, or an intimidating Doberman pinscher, but this is a mistake! Buying a dog should be a long, careful process - a new dog is, after all, a new family member and every dog deserves more than a loving home - they deserve the right loving home!
There are a number of things that potential dog owners need to consider before making the leap. Does the dog breed you've fallen in love with fit in with your lifestyle? If you work eight hours a day, can the dog be left on its own in your home, or will it become stressed and destructive? If you have other pets, will the dog get along with them? Is the dog child-friendly, or will it quickly lose patience?
It works both ways; a new dog must fit in with their owner's lifestyle, but new owners also need to have the skills and patience necessary to provide adequate care for their new canine companion. Prospective dog owners should ask themselves, "Do I have the time to give this breed all the exercise it needs? Do I have the energy to keep up with them? Am I willing to buy it a doggie jacket when the weather gets chilly? Do I want a mellow lap dog or an excitable adventuring buddy?"
This book will analyze 50 unique dog breeds in terms of their protection ability, trainability, playfulness, exercise needs, and adaptability. Furthermore, it will analyze 50 typical dog behaviors and explain what they mean and how to address them (if they happen to be bad habits). If you're a prospective dog owner or even just an enthusiast, you need this book!
