Caring For Your Dog - The Essential Guide

Anyone who knows me knows I have two adorable Boxer dogs. They are part of our family and are very much loved by all of us. Pepper is 3 years old and Yogi is 10 months old. I have always had dogs when growing up too. So I do like to think myself as reasonably clued up on how to look after my dogs well. But it never does any harm to keep a book to hand should you ever need information.


I was sent a copy of Caring For Your Dog the Essential Guide to review. Caring For Your Dog the Essential Guide is written by Jennifer Thomson. She is freelance journalist and has written 3 humour books and another guide. She has owned dogs all her life including a rescue dog and a dog that suffered epilepsy, these were her inspiration for writing this guide.


The guide can be purchased for £9.99 or £3.99 for a ebook guide. The guide consists of 111 pages and is split up into 11 easy to read chapters.
  1. The puppy years
  2. The adolescent dog
  3. Feeding and exercise
  4. Doggy first aid
  5. Dangerous foods for dogs
  6. Fleas and other nasties
  7. Travelling with your dog
  8. Your dog and the law
  9. Pet insurance
  10. Special needs dogs
  11. Adopting a dog
Each chapter is broken down into short sections. There isn't huge amounts of detail throughout the book but there is definitely enough for you to understand the most important bits about caring for your dog. I don't think there needs to be any more information though as it can become too complicated and confusing.

Last year Pepper had her first litter of puppies, I will be breeding her again after Christmas and will be recommending this guide to all new owners especially those that have never owned a dog before. Owning a dog is something that should never be taken lightly and I think more people should be educated before they do as some really are clueless as to how a pet should be cared for. I would give this guide a rating of 4/5.
