Description

With Your Dog Selector you will be able to understand the personalities and needs of almost any breed to allow you to choose your perfect companion.
 
​The first part of the book offers all-round guidance on how to choose a dog, and a short discussion of the pluses and otherwise of the newer crossbreeds. This is followed by a directory of over 120 breeds and crossbreeds, arranged by adult size, small to large, and packed full of information. Alongside the mugshot, each breed has information about its group (which offers valuable behavioural clues—don’t pick a Border Collie unless you have an awful lot of energy for example) and a succinct profile dealing with everything from grooming needs to any breed health concerns.
 
This book will send you to the breeder or the rescue centre with your eyes open—leaving you free to lose your heart to a dog that you know will fit in with your lifestyle.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
