Editorial Reviews

Review

1. "If you are considering adopting a dog from a shelter then 'Love Has No Age Limit' will be your perfect companion. Packed with great information, this book will make the transition period from shelter to home a lot easier for you and your dog. For shelters, 'Love Has No Age Limit' will give adopters a unique support system, thereby increasing the rate of successful adoptions by helping to keep dogs in their new homes." --Victoria Stilwell, Animal Planet's It's Me or the Dog

2. "They say, you can't judge a book by its cover but as soon as I saw the dear old dog on the cover of Patricia McConnell and Karen London's Love Has No Age Limit, I just knew I would love the book. And I do. Yet another outrageous success by Patricia and Karen. I have always been a champion of adopting adult dogs and this book is most certainly a valuable resource for anyone welcoming an adult dog into their home. Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. Let Patricia and Karen show you how." --Dr. Ian Dunbar, DVM, founder of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers

3. "If you've decided to adopt a furry homeless stranger, this booklet is your perfect resource. You'll provide love for your new dog, while Drs. McConnell and london will provide practical, accurate advice so you can avoid common mistakes and spark a life-long friendship." --Kathy Sdao, MA, ACAAB, Bright Spot Dog Training

Format: Paperback
Great little booklet for people thinking about adopting an adult dog. McConnell explains how to prepare for your adult dog's arrival, how to help her settle in, how to build a relationship with her, and more. She also briefly addresses some common problems: housetraining, chewing, separation anxiety, etc. The best part of the book is the bibliography at the end, arranged by subject such as "Crate Training," "Barking," "Fearful Dogs," "General Training," etc.

McConnell's booklet is brief and introductory; those expecting an in-depth discussion on training and behavior will be disappointed. The booklet should be treated more like a map; it will orient readers and set them off in the right direction. Once readers understand where they'd like go, they can use the resources in the back to find their way. (What a fabulous, up-to-date bibliography!)

Drs. London & McConnell have written the book that anyone, whether adopting their first of fifth dog, should read. Pet owners and trainers alike will find something to add to their tool box in this book. It should be included with every dog, puppy or older, going to their new home. Shelters and rescue groups will find it to be an invaluable resource for their adopters. Better buy two books since it won't last long on your own bookshelf. You'll be sharing it with the next new dog owner you talk to!

I teach family dog classes. I also help shelter volunteers with some of the training skills to "re-educate" dogs in shelters so that they may become more adoptable. "Love Has No Age Limit" is a treasure! Dr. McConnell and Dr. London have written a very concise guide to preparing for and caring for a newly adopted dog. Whether you're thinking about adopting or all your dogs are rescue dogs, every dog owning family can benifit from having this book available! Buy it! Your canine buddy will thank you!

This incredibly informative, thoughtful, and readable in a day book should be REQUIRED for anyone who is going to adopt a new dog; heck, you should read it if you're going to live with dogs at all, just like all of Patrica McConnell's books.
It is warm, funny, and compassionate to both dogs and new owners, and is also based on years of professional work with dogs by both writers. It covers everything from preparation to resource guarding, feeding, housetraining, introducing to other dogs/cats, and so much more. I really believe that if everyone who is bringing a new dog into their home were handed a copy of this book along with the dog, the return rate to rescues and shelters would drop significantly.

I have read and trust all of this author's previous titles. So glad to see that she has taken on this topic. Adopted dogs need love and understanding, but they will repay with such devotion.

I wish I'd read this book before I adopted my last 2 dogs. I have passed it on to my daughter who is contemplating another rescue dog.

Format: Paperback
Most of Patricia McConnell's books are short and to the point. Great books for getting some concise info to get you started. In this case, the focus is on bringing home a dog who is past puppyhood, and getting you through that initial period of bringing the dog home and getting settled in. Highly recommended if you are new to this or are bringing in a dog that might have more issues than you are accustomed to.
