Live a more joyful life with your dog - one day at a time!

Dog Lover's Daily Companion is an inspiring handbook filled with 365 helpful tips, easy-to-build projects, and practical advice on the canine-human relationship. No matter where you live or what breed of dog you have, this book has a year's worth of ideas and insight into an exuberant, healthy life with your dog.

Wendy Nan Rees and Kristen Hampshire use humor, passion, and panache as they guide you through the day-to-day life of owning and living with a dog. From regular vaccinations to dealing with a sick dog; puppy school to obedience training; grooming at home - to those times that you must consult a professional - it's all covered here. Dynamic photographs by pet portraitist and "dogumentarian" Kendra Luck weave a visual narrative that honors the joy of dog companionship.

Inside, you'll find the following day-to-day categories:

Monday - Dogs 101

Tuesday - Table Manners and Training

Wednesday - Playtime and Exercise

Thursday - Grooming and Health Care

Friday - Housekeeping and Cleaning

Saturday and Sunday - Bonding and Relationship Building
