Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Beth Ostrosky Stern (aka Mrs. Howard Stern) presents a compendium of excellent advice for those new to the art of dog ownership with help from coauthor Grish. Stern, a longtime animal-rights activist and spokesperson for the North Shore Animal League, provides a lot of sensible advice as well as tips from veterinary experts for those entertaining the idea of dog ownership. In addition to determining whether your lifestyle will permit successful dog ownership, other topics include the true financial cost of dog ownership, picking a breed, adopting versus purchasing, and raising a puppy. While the book is written in an easygoing, conversational way, even longtime dog owners will find helpful information here. Designed for quick and easy reference, each chapter is packed with information, sidebars, and Ask Dr. Z! segments, a collection of questions about quirky dog behaviors and what they mean. A great resource for potential and current dog owners, this provides calm, rational, and, in some cases, step-by-step tips for navigating the world of dog ownership. --Kathleen Hughes

Review

-- Joanne Yohannan, Senior Vice President, Operations, North Shore Animal League America

In which chapter does she talk about her own dog being trained by a professional? Or getting her dog from a breeder, despite telling others to adopt from shelters?

I could probably find all of this for free via a google search, and even then I can guarantee I'd find some contradictory advice as well. Not as useful as I had hoped.

Same old story told by a pretty face. Tried to find something positive about the book, but quite frankly, I have learned more from the yearly visit to the vet than I did trying to wade through glamour shots. There are far better informational books out there for serious pet owners. Talk to your vet. Even free pamphlets are better and you will have money left in your pocket for a new calendar.

This book is kind of like the Holiday Inn commercials. Hey Beth are you a dog expert? Well no, but I did fly over a Holiday Inn in my private helicopter. This woman bought her dog trained, and does little more than pass on regurgitated information that could be found in a simple Internet search.

My favorite part was chapter three where Ms. Stern teaches us the difference between a European bent-knee pose and the less formal Pittsburgh bent-knee pose. I also love how the publisher was able to put all her teeth on the cover.

Harrible book. Harrible author. This no talent, plastic surgery enhanced Hamptonite can't figure out how to work a pooper scooper and she is writing books. I rather watch Idol and eat NATCHOS than keep reading this book. I bought the book while I was on one of my 23 weeks vacation and it was soo bad I went back to work. Embarrasing !
