Summary
DOGS. This title offers everything you need to know about owning a dog, including buying and choosing a suitable animal, settling in a new puppy, and nutrition and diet. It explores a range of different types of dog - both pedigree and non-pedigree - their characteristics and the breed that will best suit your lifestyle and home environment. It includes a guide to the equipment you will need, such as beds and bedding, brushes, combs and chew toys. It explains how to train your dog, from socialization with other animals and people to walking on a lead and basic obedience training, such as understanding "sit" and "stay". It offers professional advice on health care and essential first aid. It includes over 300 step-by-step photographs to show all the practical skills and techniques in clear detail. The dog has been our best friend for thousands of years
