Format: Paperback
Lots of photographs,recipes and projects in Eco Dog.

The book begins with the advice that, unlike wolves, dogs need to be groomed and washed regularily. Homemade recipes, like dog tonics and an herbal flea powder, are included. The pet owner is also advised to avoid commercial dog shampoos, as they may be harmful.

The chapter on dog food advises to feed the dog high quality food or homemade food and a meatloaf recipe is included. I would have liked to have seen more recipes and more information on feeding good quality food.

I really liked that natural cleaners for the house were advised, with good recommendations. The authors point out that dogs lick stuff--like the floor--and that safe cleaners are imperative to their health.

Some cool projects include green toys to make for your dogs out of recycled objects like socks. Brilliant! Most toys for dogs are made out of synthetic materials derived from petrochemicals, so I really thought the idea of natural toys was great.

Overall, a smart, green book for raising healthy dogs.

I borrowed this book from the library because I saw a tiny blurb in a magazine. After borrowing it, I had to get my own copy. My son and I made several of the recycled T-Shirt Rope Bones. These were fun and easy, and took less than 20 minutes to make from start to finish. Our 2 Golden Retreivers have a blast playing with these ropes, which are nice and long for a good game of tug. I think this is a great project for kids doing some community service: 1st they are reccyling old T-shirts and 2nd they can donate the rope bone toys to local animal shelters...or they could even sell them and donate the money to the shelters.
My son also made a toy from an old pair of jeans.
I am eager to try the recipes for treats, which look simple to make.
There's great info on making some natural household cleaners as well, which anyone could benefit from, whether they are pet owner or not.
A few of the projects (such as first aid tote bag kit) require using a sewing machine, which not many people have, including myself. We hand-sewed the demin toy, which was OK for a small item.
On the whole, a worthwhile book with good illustrations and well-written directions.

Excellent compilation of eco friendly facts and and dog care in an entertaining and easy to read style. Personally I smiled through the whole book as I read it. Good to see some ideas from the "1970's tree hugging days" when the ecology revolution was in its embrionic stage. Its good to see the torch being passed so expertly to the next generation!!
