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

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!)
Debbie Jacobs author of A Guide to Living With & Training a Fearful Dog
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.
