Sundance, Kyra. 101 Ways To Do More with Your Dog. Quarry: Quayside. 2010. c.208p. photogs. ISBN 9781592536429. pap. $19.99. pets
Dog owners looking for fun activities with their canine companions will find many ideas from Sundance, who has written several dog-training books (e.g., 51 Puppy Tricks) and hosts a DVD series. The glossy, full-color pages are indicative of the book’s fun and enthusiasm—there is something here for everyone. Activities range from paw-print painting to extreme sports. Some, such as agility and obedience training for service dogs, are fairly mainstream. Others, like paragliding with your dog or having your canine pal serve as a blood donor, are more unusual. With at least one page devoted to each activity, there is a description, a list of required gear (if any), and suggestions for getting started. A sidebar identifies dog breeds ideally suited to the activity and includes a personal note and tips from dog enthusiasts. For some activities, there are additional pages with more specific instructions. VERDICT This upbeat, fun book is a welcome addition to collections serving those who view their pets as family - Library Journal, Nov. 1, 2010

Format: Paperback
We have enjoyed Kyra Sundance's other books, which are training books, so I thought this book would be similar, but it's actually pretty different.

This is NOT a training book, or a book of very detailed instructions like Kyra's other books.

Basically, this book is a whole book full of things people do with their dogs. It's very cool. Some of the pictures are incredible! (For instance, dog surf! And dogs paraglide!)

Each activity has symbols to indicate what "needs" you're fulfilling when you do the activity with your dog. The four categories are: physical, mental, social, and bonding. Each activity meets at least one of those needs, and almost all of them meet more than one need.

This book is so neat! There were SO MANY activities I had never thought of, like Dog Scouts, or Hydrotherapy, or Dog Carting. Honestly, most of the activities we will NOT do. But some of them we probably will. For instance, it might be a lot of fun to try letting our puppy paint! Also, our puppy has had trouble leaving our chickens alone...maybe I should get her involved in some activity that would stimulate her in a similar way? She would love it.

I volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters, and I think my Little and I will do a few of the craft activities since we both have dogs--we can make stones with our dogs paw prints, and make homemade dog biscuits.

I think this book would make an EXCELLENT gift for someone who just got a new dog and is excited to do stuff with their dog. Or, it would be good for someone who already does quite a bit with their dog but wants to do more. Actually, this book is just great for anyone who wants to do more with their dog.

I loved 101 dog tricks, so I got this thinking it would be more fun things I could do with my dog. However, of the 101, maybe 10 of them my dog can do. It doesn't actually tell you how to do any of them, just says they exist. For example, "doga" (yoga with your dog) sounds fun, but it just tells you to go to a class. It also has things like "weiner dog racing" "terrier hurdle racing" and "hound trailing", which I guess is great if you have one of those breeds. I was really disappointed. I'm not keeping it.

The Kindle version was a great disappointment. I downed to an iPad but all of the photos were in black and white and a large number of those were blurry. While the content is good if you are looking for a very broad overview of a wide variety of dog related activities, it was extremely limited for the areas of engagement that are available to me and my dogs. I believe that the advertising should have been more specific, allowing people to see exactly what they are buying. I would NOT have purchased this book had I been more informed of the content but would have chosen one of her other books, more applicable to my needs. I like this author and have other books of hers which I love.

I was expecting games to play and how to play them. This was not the case. It was more like suggestions such as do agility. and no descriptions of how to do agility. I was disappointed but suspect if you had no clue what to do with a dog at all, it might be helpful. I wanted games to play at the dog park or socializtion class.

This book covers it all! If you are looking for something new to try with your dog, this book will definitely give you plenty of ideas! I had no idea there were so many activities for dogs and I have owned and trained dogs for 25 years! Each activity has information about it, colorful photos of people that do that activity with their dog and where to find more info. The author also has training tips for many of the activities. Two thumbs WAY up!

Format: Paperback
I agree with all of the reviews of this book. All the way from 1 star to 5 star, so take some time and read them all. The important thing to understand is that this is NOT a training book. The 1 star reviews sound more like the reviewer did not understand what kind of book they were buying (fair enough, I actually didn't read the description or reviews either). Like them, I just assumed that it was going to be a sequel to the 101 Dog Tricks book and have 101 more dog tricks to teach your dog in the same format - it is NOT that kind of book. Oops, my mistake. Which is why I do NOT think it deserves a 1 star rating in any way!! All of those 1 & 2 star ratings are NOT the authors fault - the reviewers didn't know the type of book they were buying!!

So... what type of book IS this?? A book explaining 101 things to "do more with your dog". It is pretty much a giant collection of dog activities and dog sports, and Kyra does an EXCELLENT job at compiling all these in one great book!! People are right, some of the activities are more accessible than others and some are breed specific sports (but that doesn't mean you can't try them with your dog!) I belong to a Dog Scout troop (prior to purchasing this book), and like this book, Dog Scouts encourages people do teach their dog everything they can, they do not discriminate activities based on breed. If you are interested in trying a lot of the activities in this book, check out the Dog Scout page on 109. Dog Scouts gives the training information for a lot of the activities in this book.

Overall, GREAT compilation of dog activities! And I plan to try as many as I possibly can in my dog's lifetime - the more we do with our dogs, the more fun we can have. Thanks Kyra for another amazing book!
