7-second review: sensible, practical, well-researched, highly useful reference for any caretaker of a canine companion.

Updated from original 2012 review (opinion still current):

I haven't read this whole thing, but a lot of it. It helped when we recently got a new (and very hyper) dog. I checked out tons of books when we first got her, and this is the only one that I keep checking out of the library (eventually I guess I'll stop).
