Review: A Modern Dog's Life: How to Do the Best for Your Dog

User Review  - Elizabeth - Goodreads

As a new dog owner I liked this book. It provided some points of reference in beginning to 'understand' what motivates a dog to behave. From my experience it is mainly food! I haven't read other similar books and will be in a better position to compare usefulness once I have. Read full review
