Lots of Good Advice, and A Pleasure to Read

Love Has No Age Limit: Welcoming an Adopted Dog into Your Home. Patricia B. McConnell and Karen B. London. Black Earth, Wisconsin, McConnell Publishing, 2011. 95 pp.

Sparkling and succinct, this ninety-five page guide is a refreshing overview of the most important topics that adopters need to consider as they are about to welcome their new dog. Patricia B. McConnell and Karen B. London, experts in canine behavior and adopters themselves, focus on what it takes for this new relationship to get off to a great start.

The book is divided into six chapters, each of which is further divided into short sections. A seventh chapter provides an introduction to some of the common “problems” that dog owners may encounter. A list of helpful resources is included at the end. Readers will find here everything from a list of supplies needed to insights into understanding what their dog may be feeling in various situations. In short, the authors aim to tell you “what you most need to know during the first month after you adopt a new dog.”
