Okay, I saw the title of this book and was curious. Then I saw the German Shepherd pup on the cover and the book went immediately into my library bag. While some of the projects are skimpy on details, the overall concept and topics of this book are well done. Barthel reminds dog owners that their backyards may not be picture perfect when having a dog, but they can be lovely areas enjoyed by humans and canines alike.

This is a general guide to sharing your yard with dogs. Pretty specific as in breeds as well. Some points are no brainers for experienced dog owners.

The best thing I learned reading this is that bald spots on your lawn are not caused by your dog tearing up the grass - rather, the dogs weight compacts the dirt and prevents grass from growing. Lawn aeration is the answer and this tip worked. However, the rest of the book had a lot of ideal "eye-candy" that I would not be able to afford - even at do-it-yourself prices.

Picked this up because of the GSD on the cover. It's an introduction for those who are clueless on sharing their yards with canines. Touches on concepts of organic gardening, plant selection, garden design, dog training. Very superficial if you have no background on these topics. And if you do, then this book is mostly about the pics.

It had some okay ideas, but I really wanted more details. Telling me to watch my dog and make sure I didn't plant anything along an existing path they use wasn't I wanted to hear. I was hoping for some ideas to help redirect the dogs.

Not the subject matter I wanted, but for total dog lovers - this is a good read.
