Extremely helpful!!!

This is by far the best book I have ever read regarding dogs - and I have read many of them!!! I had high hopes for it to begin with, considering my respect of The Whole Dog Journal, but it really exceeded my wildest expectations! It covers in detail just about every question a dog parent might have, whether it's related to basic housetraining, food (what to avoid and how to read the labels, or how to make your own) and herbal supplements, obedience and "fun tricks", health issues (including allergies, arthritis and cancer), and so much more. I was especially impressed with the health part: it doesn't just describe the symptoms like most other books out there but actually explains what to do about it, and what kind of conventional (surgery, chemo...) and alternative options (herbs, acupuncture, etc.) can be considered. It explains everything in a very easily understandable language - not boring or technical or new-age'i at all! - why the holistic approach along with healthy food, positive training and illness prevention is the way to go. I found this book so interesting, educational and entertaining that I couldn't put it down! It's a MUST READ for everyone who already lives with a dog or is thinking about getting one, whether a first-time or experienced owner. Thank you, WDJ!

The Whole Dog Journal Handbook of Dog and Puppy Care and Training

I was most impressed with the level of detail this book provides. It is written in a clear easy to understand format. I am no longer nervous about bringing my puppy home and knowing how to take care of her and train her.

A Must!

This is a great book for anyone with a new puppy or dog, even if it is not your first dog. I breed Border Collies as a hobby and I give a copy to new puppy buyers. Even if you are experienced in puppy and dog care and training/behavior, I still highly recommend this book... Especially if you are buying or adopting a new puppy or dog: Get the book and read it BEFORE you bring your puppy/dog home. This book has up to date methods on everything from preparation for your new pup to training, feeding, veterinary/health care, to issues with behavior, old age, etc. This comprehensive pet care book covers just about everything you'd ever need to know. Breeders, rescue groups and shelters: This book should accompany any dog you place! All natural, positive, and holistic methods of pet care that really work.

Informative on so many levels!

I love the Whole Dog Journal and this book is just as wonderful! I am so happy to have such a great resource to which I can refer and also one I can happily and wholeheartedly recommend to clients, friends, and family. I especially love that so many of Pat Milller's fantastic training articles are included. I gave this as a gift for Christmas and plan to give many more in the future!!
