Summary A beautifully illustrated handbook on everything you need to know about owning and training a dog for city life. So you are thinking of bringing home an adorable puppy or dog to share your life with? A furry friend who will spend weekends accompanying you to brunches and lunches; who is just as comfortable on the subway as he is frolicking with children in the park; who is equal parts well-behaved, adorable, loyal, and charming. But what are you supposed to do with your four-legged friend when youre at work? And hang on, you have just remembered that you don't have a backyard. I mean, can you even HAVE a dog if you don't have a yard? Fear not, help is at hand. In Dog About Town, urban dog trainer and behaviorist Louise Glazebrook offers essential wisdom for any current or potential dog owners. From advice on which breed of pooch is right for you, to behavioral advice, food, sleeping arrangements, and tissue obsessions (as well as countless other things you hadn't even thought of), this book has something for every dog owner. With a slant on urban living, Dog About Town is the perfect guide for anyone whose dog needs to be socialized beyond the confines of their backyard.
