Publisher Comments:

This is our seventh set of Happy, Healthy Pet titles. These latest books will bring our series up to fifty-five titles and, like the others, they are books pet owners can turn to for the essential information they need to raise a healthy, happy pet. All books contain information on: c feeding c grooming c housing c health care c what to expect from the pet c basic training As our series expands and focuses on different kinds of pets, the emphasis remains on making the pet a companion. Owners of more unusual pets will particularly appreciate the expert advice in these books because professional care for exotic animals can be hard to come by. As always, the instruction on the books is from experts people who know their pets intimately but always remember what it was like to have one the first time. Happy, Healthy Pet guides are rich with professional quality color photos and are designed to be enjoyable and easy to learn from. Most new Greyhound owners will be acquiring an ex-racer as a pet, so we ve chosen Daniel Stern, an activist for the cause of Greyhound adoptions to write this straightforward guide covering all aspects of their care.

Synopsis:

At last, a book about your pet that emphasizes total care and companionship! You'll not only learn about the specific traits of your Greyhound, you'll also learn what the world is like from your pet's perspective, how to feed, groom and keep your pet healthy and how to enjoy your pet through training and activities you can do together.

""The Greyhound"" is written by a breed expert and includes a special chapter on training by Dr. Ian Dunbar, internationally renowned animal behaviorist, and chapters on getting active with your dog by long-time ""Dog Fancy"" magazine columnist, Bardi McLennan.

Best of all, the book is filled with info-packed sidebars and fun facts to make caring for your pet easy and enjoyable.
