Prospective buyers are instructed on what to look for when choosing a puppy, how breed-specific traits influence the relationship between dog and owner, and potential health problems to look out for in specific breeds. Each book also includes detailed information and advice on:
Everyday canine care, grooming, and exercise
Nutrition and health maintenance
Training and play activities
Sidebars appear throughout the pages of each book with breed facts, helpful hints, and quick tips on training. A hidden spiral binding ensures that the book will stay open and flat at any desired page. The DVD enclosed with each book presents an informal dog training course for new owners.
