(Gary’s on vacation until Dec. 28)
I get a lot of interesting new books in the mail from publishers, but I found the little collection of new dog books below from TFH Publications to be of particular interest … especially this one:
“Smart Tricks for Smart Dogs: A Fun and East Step-by-Step Program for Every Dog.” (September, 2009; $17.95; ISBN: 978-0-7938-0629-4)
Teaching your dog tricks is a fun way to increase the bond you share with your 4-legged companion, while also stimulating the dog’s mind (and yours!) through hours of enjoyable learning.
This durable, laminated book makes a great present to slip into a Christmas stocking or under the tree for your pet (and you!). It’s a family-friendly, visual guide showing you how to teach simple, smart tricks to dogs of any size or age. Great color photos guide you along every step of the way. There’s even a removable progress chart to help you set training goals and note your pet’s achievements. Enjoy.
Also new from TFH Publications:
*** “The Happy Adopted Dog — How to Adopt the Perfect Family Dog”
*** “Groom Your Dog Like a Professional: Step-by-Step techniques & Tips for a Great-Looking Dog”
*** “Dog University: A Training Program to Develop Advanced Skills With Your Dog”
*** “The Encyclopedia of Dog Sports and Activities: A Field Guide of More Than 35 Fun Activities for You and Your Dog”

I’m on vacation for the next week and will be back here on Dec. 28. In the meantime, have a VERY Merry Christmas! /Gary
