Product Description

Review

Neither you nor your dog actually have to be Jewish to enjoy this ludicrous but extremely funny spoof pooch manual filled with dire jokes that would make even Woody Allen cringe. From how to find a vet who will be sufficiently responsive to your Jewish dog's high emotional neediness to buying it muffins at the airport to disguise the tranquilisers you're going to give it for travelling, it made me shake with laughter again and again; not to mention the cover. (Katie Law EVENING STANDARD)

How to Raise a Jewish Dog is essentially one long joke: bit it's a very funny one! at only 162 pages it doesn't outstay its welcome. The prose is well-written with a great sense of comic timing, which is why it comes recommended. Just remember: if you read it on public transport you're likely to attract attention with your chuckling. (ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS)

A dog is not just for Chanucah. So those of you who have recently acquired a pooch will be happy to know that this is now a training manual. (Simon Rocker JEWISH CHRONICLE) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

Everything the dog owner needs to know to nurture a canine companion with both an exaggerated sense of his own wonderfulness and paralyzing self-doubt

Hard to read this book without smiling. Anyone with a sense of irony (and if you speak yiddish, irony comes as standard) will love this.

Perfect. Such wisdom. Digby and i are now clear who is in charge and who is the centre of my affections. So maybe just occasionally he will follow orders. Or maybe not. But we are following the historic path he is now a good jewish dog and make me a grandmother again

Good pieces of advice to take on board. Very knowledgeable rabbis, of course. It's fun to read but is a sensible work which does make sense. Of course it is more about dog owners being Jewish than the dogs, but it goes a long way. Great, please carry on writing.

Read out loud to a partner or friend especially if they are Jewish!
I had to remind my 3 dog owning husband that it was 'tongue in cheek'

Was struggling to find appropriate gifts for my Jewish friend for Hannukah when I stumbled across this - good fun and a bit of a different present!

This is a wonderfully profound and comprehensive work, for which the Rabbis of Boca Raton deserve our unconditional, conditional [sic] gratitude. If you want to raise a neurotic dog, you simply couldn't do better.than read this immaculately researched book. If you want some penetrating insights into the kind of person who would raise a Jewish dog, then you NEED to read this. And if you're an attention-seeker who's not worried about being labelled barking mad and being forcibly restrained, then you'll want to read this in a public place where your shrieks of laughter will garner you all the attention you could possibly want. You should buy it - all that laughter must be good for your heart!
