DOGSAFE by Aileen Reynolds
DOGSAFE by Aileen Reynolds
Another dog book I hear you say. Well, yes BUT this one is different. It does not go into all the training aspects that bog down so many others, nor does it get embroiled in technical 'jargo-speak'. What it DOES do however, is give you an insight into how your dog thinks, how other humans react to your dog (and how they deal with their own, which is just as vital) and, just for good measure, it gives you the lowdown on some of the legalities that affect your dog in the UK (That may sound dry but it is written sympathetically, and, let's face it, these rules are ther for us to pay heed to).

Starman: David Bowie - The Definitive Biography by Paul Trynka
9 of 10 people found the following review helpful

Cannot recommend this book highly enough.
