Read full description of the books:
Great little booklet for people thinking about adopting an adult dog. McConnell explains how to prepare for your adult dog's arrival, how to help her settle in, how to build a relationship with her, and more. She also briefly addresses some common problems: housetraining, chewing, separation anxiety, etc. The best part of the book is the bibliography at the end, arranged by subject such as "Crate Training," "Barking," "Fearful Dogs," "General Training," etc.
McConnell's booklet is brief and introductory; those expecting an in-depth discussion on training and behavior will be disappointed. The booklet should be treated more like a map; it will orient readers and set them off in the right direction. Once readers understand where they'd like go, they can use the resources in the back to find their way. (What a fabulous, up-to-date bibliography!)
