Dog: The definitive guide for dog owners

    By

    Dog is the book for every day of your dog's life - and every day of your life with your dog. This is the enduring story of man and dog. At its heart is an emotionally intelligent analysis of the lifelong partnership between the two species, with such wit and wisdom that will shape your attitude, influence your actions, and provoke the happiest and healthiest lives for you and your dog. But it's in the detail of this book that you'll find magic: in the miracle of birth, the too-short puppyhood, the exasperating adolescence and calmer adulthood. In Dog, Dr. Bruce Fogle explains the familiar and mysterious relationship between man and dog. Throughout this evocative and detailed study he reveals - by exploring behaviour, anthropology and genetics - the essential bonds of trust, loyalty and service that mark humankind's most valuable and long-lived of animal friendships. You'll turn to this book every time your dog surprises you, worries you, needs you, misses you, and plays, exercises, runs or swims. This is the book to take from the shelf when you plan to choose a new puppy or must face the autumn years of a much-loved old friend, for training, and for the very best veterinary advice in emergencies.
