Review quote

Sundance, Kyra. 101 Ways To Do More with Your Dog. Quarry: Quayside. 2010. c.208p. photogs. ISBN 9781592536429. pap. $19.99. petsDog owners looking for fun activities with their canine companions will find many ideas from Sundance, who has written several dog-training books (e.g., 51 Puppy Tricks) and hosts a DVD series. The glossy, full-color pages are indicative of the book's fun and enthusiasm--there is something here for everyone. Activities range from paw-print painting to extreme sports. Some, such as agility and obedience training for service dogs, are fairly mainstream. Others, like paragliding with your dog or having your canine pal serve as a blood donor, are more unusual. With at least one page devoted to each activity, there is a description, a list of required gear (if any), and suggestions for getting started. A sidebar identifies dog breeds ideally suited to the activity and includes a personal note and tips from dog enthusiasts. For some activities, there are additional pages with more specific instructions. VERDICT This upbeat, fun book is a welcome addition to collections serving those who view their pets as family - Library Journal, Nov. 1, 2010
