More Description




The warm belly, the swinging tail, the wet nose, the big brown eyes -- these are just some of the things that make living with a puppy pure bliss. But sometimes it's too easy to forget that a puppy is more than just an adorable plaything: He is like a four-legged child, in need of love, guidance and the best care there is. The first year of a dog's life is roughly equivalent to the first eighteen years of a child's life. It's a crucial time in the development of his behavior, personality and lifetime habits, so it's important to get it right

Enter "The Good Life." In their trademark good-humored, engaging style, Mordecai Siegal and Matthew Margolis take new dog owners by the hand and explain what they should be doing to raise their dogs throughout the first year and beyond. To help along new "parents," the book breaks down the first year into clear time frames with essential information for each developmental stage of a young dog's life. From feeding to housebreaking to behavior problem solving, "The Good Life" is filled with invaluable tips on every aspect of caring for a puppy. Areas covered include:


Acclimating your puppy to your

household and to strangers

Fun and instructive play activities for each time frame

Typical behavioral problems of

each stage, and ways to remedy them

Plus: A fully illustrated obedience-training course and a complete housebreaking program that really work

Comprehensive and easy to follow, "The Good Life" is the "Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care" for dogs -- filled with everything ownersneed to help their puppy become a happy, healthy member of the family.
