As a trainer who lives with a relatively large pack of dogs, I appreciate the down-to-earth, positive approach to pack management in Debby's book. Debby has succeeded in providing both a moral support system and a user-friendly plan for people struggling with the multiple dog lifestyle, as well as giving helpful tips for integrating foster dogs or the new puppy. If you are feeling a little out of control in your multiple dog household, this book provides support from somebody who has not only "been there" herself but made a career out of it. --Leslie McDevitt, MLA, CPDT, CDBC, author Control Unleashed
Boy do I wish I had this book before I brought home my second dog! It's packed with vital information on how to create household harmony out of canine chaos. How Many Dogs?! allows you to add to your family in a positive, orderly manner, rather than suffering through it. Tips abound, and range from housetraining and loose leash walking to mealtime and behavior problems. --Ali Brown, M.Ed., CPDT, CDBC, author Scaredy Dog!
