Synopses & Reviews
Puppyâ€™s First Steps presents the new gold standard in animal care for the enlightened dog owner--a unique, comprehensive approach to health, training, and behavior. The faculty of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, one of the most prestigious and pioneering veterinary schools in the world, now shares its accumulated knowledge and experience to aid new dog owners in raising the healthiest, happiest, most well-behaved companion.
Their integrative mind-body approach is scientifically proven and stands above the one-size-fits-all mentality that pervades the dog training world. This book offers crucial advice for the puppyâ€™s first yearâ€”the most essential twelve months of a dogâ€™s developmentâ€”and throughout the dogâ€™s life, ensuring a strong bond between owners and their best friends.
One of the most prestigious and pioneering veterinary schools now shares its accumulated knowledge and experience to aid new dog owners in raising healthy, happy, and well-behaved companions.
The human/animal bond is never stronger or more tender than when your dog's muzzle turns gray and the spring in her step begins to diminish. After spending the better part of a decade with this beloved member of your family, making sure your canine friend ages comfortably, contendedly and well is a natural priority. And no one knows how to ensure healthy aging better than the renowned faculty of the Tufts Cummings Veterinary School, who treat more than eight thousand older dogs annually.
Good Old Dog brings their renowned clinic into your living room, providing you with essential advice on nutrition, health, and caretaking to see your dog through the golden years.
