This book is a gold mine of information for the care and safety of our beloved pooches. I got it thinking I would use it as a reference / first aid manual for my rambunctious terrier but the minute I opened it to "skim through it" I got hooked and read it cover to cover. Did you know grapes can cause kidney failure in some dogs? Or that the Sago Palm, very common in Southern California gardens, is lethal? A couple of nights ago I turned my back for a second and my dog gobbled up my pasta which was covered with a sauce made with huge chunks of garlic. I remembered seeing garlic on the list of toxic foods so I grabbed my book and turned to pg. 57 and to the most important list all dog owners should have taped on their refrigerator door. The information on separation anxiety (pg. 45) could have saved my dog years of 4th of July stress and if I had seen the safety tip about bolting out front doors earlier (pg. 23) I probably could have saved $5000 on expensive TPLO knee surgery recently. Beautifully written and designed and meticulously researched, this book should be mandatory reading for all dog owners. In fact, I think it should automatically come with all new puppies and rescues as an instruction manual!

Let me start off by saying that we are owners of a cage free dog boarding facility and have what I thought to be in depth knowledge of dogs. But, as the saying goes, "You don't know everything" couldn't be more true! The Safe Dog Handbook is loaded with information on not only how to keep your dog safe in the outdoors as well as indoor environments but great dog behavior tips as well. The book has an interesting design feature in that it has a spiral binder that allows for easy page access and long term durability. This book should be kept close by for quick reference in a dog emergency, it even comes with two handy bookmarks. I plan on keeping close by at our business and to make sure all our employees read it too. It is extremely well written and photographed and makes the perfect gift for any dog lover.

This is well written, has everything you need to know (and stuff you didn't even know that you needed to know but you do), and really cute pics. I highly reco this book for anyone who loves dogs and wants to care for them as best they can. Very informative and very easy to read.

I would definitely recommend this book to others. If you are considering obtaining or have just gotten a pet, reading through this will prime you on most everything you need to know. Unfortunately, the two times I've been seriously concerned about my puppy's health, it was not covered in the book (he ended up being fine, though). The index could also be improved upon. I still recommend it highly to keep around, though. The spiral bound aspect is nice. Includes things like outdoor safety, choking, collar safety (often overlooked) and symptoms to watch out for. I keep it right on top of my dog's crate in a basket for quick reference, and I do reference it often. Remember it's ALWAYS best to call the vet if you have any concerns that are not obvious fixes!!! Also check out the author's you tube page which is helpful.

This book is informative and was extremely helpful in my landscaping decisions. I thought that the spirial binding was a tremendous help when I consulted the wealth of useful facts that protect dogs. As dog lovers, and foster parents to puppies from our local Humane shelter, the book has already saved one puppies health ( and possible its life) because of the poisonous plant tips. Prevention is so much better than reaction to a pet emergency that I donated several dozen books to our local Humane shelter to help new dog owners keep their pets safe. I think it is a must.

I heard about this book from the Ellen DeGeneres Show and I think it's a fantastic book that every dog owner should have. I'm especially glad for the pet first aid information but also like the lists of all the things that are poisonous for dogs, which I've already referred to twice! My Cavalier is already 1 yr. but still gets into things all the time.

It does have some good stuff in it, and a person can always use more input on how to take care of their four legged family members. But it wasn't what I was expecting or hoping for.

This is the best pet first aid guide I have read. If you can think of a question, you'll find the answer here. I refer to it often. As a petsitter I have dealt with many emergencies, so i keep a copy in my car as well as at home.
