Over all I think this book is very good. BUT!! I want to point out that it says that you should give grapes as a treat. Grapes and raisins are poisonous to dogs. You should NEVER give them as a treat! I hope no dogs have come to harm because of this. Read full review

This book was my "go to" book when I became a dachshund mommy. Although I did not purchase this book until my doxie was almost 3 years old...this book is fun to read and educational. Read full review
