For fans of Ben Fogle and dog lovers everywhere, this is Kate Humble's heartwarming exploration of the relationship between man and his best friend. There is one animal that is familiar to all of us, whoever we are, wherever we live. Even if we've never had direct contact with one, we will have seen one, or at the very least, heard one. For those of us who live in the western world it is more than likely that one sleeps in our house, possibly even on our bed. I'm talking of course, of the dog. Yet, this animal, which lives alongside five hundred million of us all over the world - as an invaluable partner and a trusted confidant - presents us with one great unsolved mystery: how did this relationship - the most complex and enduring of any between human and animal - start in the first place? Kate Humble is a life-long animal lover. Now living on an idyllic farm in Wales, she has achieved her dream of surrounding herself with as many varieties as possible. But, as with many Brits, the dog has always held a special place in her heart. Here, she uses her journey with her sheepdog puppy Teg to frame her examination of this very special relationship. Written with warmth and love, and packed full of stories about rescue dogs, guide dogs, service dogs and medical dogs, this is a must-read for anyone with a four-legged friend.

The Ultimate Week-by-Week Guide to Raising Your Puppy
1st Edition Paperback ISBN: 1770851933
An owner's guide to giving a puppy a successful start to life. Puppy Bible is uniquely designed to guide new puppy owners on a week-by-week basis from the all-important planning and decision stages, up to those exciting first days at home, through the first six months of a puppy's life and beyond. The book is divided into two parts. First, a clearly illustrated, week-by-week planner that educates the owner about a number of important topics, including: - The puppy's physical and mental development - What the owner should do at every stage of the puppy's growth - Newborn: 8-week countdown to puppy's arrival - Toddler: weeks 9 to 12 - Juvenile: weeks 13 to 18 - Adolescent: weeks 19 to 24 - Six months and beyond - Common problems that may occur. The information in part one is cross-referenced to part two of the book, a comprehensive encyclopedia covering all areas of puppy care with detailed expert advice on a wide number of topics, such as: - House training - General care and grooming - Health - Breed-specific considerations - Behavior - Socialization - Obedience training - Diet - Socialization and troubleshooting - Canine first aid. When it comes to puppies, it's important to do it right from the very first day. What happens in the first sixteen weeks of its life sets the tone for the rest of the dog's life. While Puppy Bible is designed primarily for those first 16 weeks, it will be useful at any stage of the dog's life: training needs occasional reinforcement, general care and grooming are always important, and a source of first aid care is essential.
