The Fast Track ‘Dog Survival Kit’: Coping with Adolescence and Beyond
Lyn Fleet and Helen Roberts (Dogwise  Publishing 2004) ISBN ISBN: 0 9546845 1 6

What a great little book! Packed full of information for dog owners, sound advice and humour, this book is a must read for owners who wish to understand more about their dogs, how to deal with the challenges of dog ownership and make important decisions that will affect their dog’s future health and wellbeing. It dispels common myths about dominance, explains breed-specific behaviour, looks at how dogs learn, discusses diet, aggression and other ‘problem’ behaviours, and gives good information about how to tackle common issues such as barking. It has a useful chapter on how dogs communicate.

Lyn and Helen have covered almost all the things you need to consider when owning a dog in an easy-to-read guide that should be on the shelf of every dog owner.
