For those who also like cats, I would recommend "Cats for Dummies," coauthored by Gina Spadafori and Dr. Paul Pion, DVM. It has all the same sorts of information as "Dogs for Dummies" but is tailored to cats. After reading both of these books, I feel much more prepared to add a furry companion to my life.
We particularly liked the authors commitment to older dogs and shelter dogs, that's the way we will go. I'm sure we will use the book once we have a dog, there are chapters on health care and training as well as feeding - your dog should be a healthy and happy dog if you head this advice. Suggestion: add a breed specific book if you decided on a pure breed to get the finer details.
