I have always been a huge fan of Darlene Arden. She's smart, articulate and absolutely passionate about dogs -- she may just be dog's best friend. I have all three of her books and each one contains valuable and timely information on some aspect of the relationship between humans and dogs.

I especially enjoyed this book and find myself going back to it time and time again. It is a detailed compilation of neat stuff you can do WITH your dog, as well as great things to buy FOR your dog. Sure, you could spend weeks on the Internet and find a lot of this information yourself, but Darlene has done all of us a favor by compiling everything in this handy, inexpensive book. Most of the items listed were totally unfamiliar to me, but I will be checking out many in the weeks to come.

Thank you, Darlene for all that you do on behalf of animals. I intend to give several copies to friends this Christmas.

Format: Paperback
This book is unlike any other dog books I have (and I've got LOTS :-). It's full of all these amazing places to go, things to buy, things to do - that are dog-related. Although it's U.S.-based, websites for the companies make it a handy book even for non U.S. people like me, and there are international companies listed too. There are some really interesting things listed, and it's written in a very readable format. I read the whole book the evening it came, and it's very entertaining as well as useful. Anyone who is a dog-person would love this.

This book is delightfully packed with useful information for dog lovers. You'll have fun while you're gleaning information, too, as the book is very entertaining. I had no idea there were so many businesses catering to the needs of dogs and their owners. Some of them are in fact, literally, catering, as at least one canine catererer is listed, along with numerous formulators and purveyors of doggie treats. The author covers everything: shopping, health, food, training, day care, recreation, publications, art, and some offbeat and entertaining items such as museums, expos and fairs. Where can you find someone to paint your dog's portrait? How, and where, can you travel with your dog in such a way that both of you will have a good trip? You'll find the answers, and many more, here. The table of contents is divided logically into categories that cover every aspect of canine life, with a comprehensive index at the back of the book. The author prefaces each chapter with her own comments and, in some cases, heads the chapters with her expert observations and advice. Many of the listed businesses carry products for cats, too, so even if you are a dogless cat person, you'll enjoy this book!

What a great book, not my normal type of read, but so entertaining and informative. The author has an impressive writing style, concise, humorous and enticing.

This is one book that every dog owner should have. Four paws up from me !
