The 50+ Dog Owner: Complete Dog Parenting for Baby Boomers and Beyond
The 50+ Dog Owner provides up-to-date information and advice about choosing and caring for a dog to match canine companionship with the lifestyles of Americans entering their golden years--the fastest growing demographic within the population. Written in an engaging, straightforward, senior-to-senior style by a proud member of the "50+ club," the in-depth expert advice is both easily accessible and appropriate for seniors who want, or already have, the companionship of a dog. The topics covered are especially relevant to any senior--whether an empty-nester, newly retired, or widowed--and include travel, housing, cost of care, and equipment, as well as the numerous health benefits linked to dog ownership for those with depression, loneliness, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Each chapter features "Money Saving Tips" to make dog ownership more cost effective and "Make It Easy" suggestions for time-saving services and products that suit your income and activity level. Every page of the book is designed with easy-to-read print and spacing.
