Wait! Are you trying to pick up a dog? Before you go any further, read this volume in the “A Dog’s Life” series (6 titles). Is the pooch squirming? It is a Great Dane? These are not good dogs to lift! The text uses a gentle tone to explain the proper way to hold, groom, and touch a dog, while always paying attention to the pup’s reactions. Tips on easing canine anxiety with a well-placed rub and acclimating a dog to its brush are two of the topics pet owners will find here. Wonderful dog photos appear on most pages, and a concluding paw-print activity offers readers some messy fun. This book’s information is decidedly light, but it clearly demonstrates that understanding one’s dog is at the heart of great pet care.
