Product description

This hilarious, tongue-in-cheek, self-help parody is a "musthave" for dog owners who are baffled by their dog's quirky habits and questionable conduct. Whether Fido compulsively chews up old blankets, obsessively licks the hardwood floor, or barks uncontrollably at an empty corner, bestselling humor author Stephen Baker offers "expert" advice on understanding, analyzing, and curing aberrant behavior. The newly repackaged "How to Live with a Neurotic Dog" covers a wide range of neuroses, including training, grooming, traveling, and feeding freak outs. Through entertaining illustrations and sharply witty text, this canine classic will help dog owners see things from their pooch's point of view.

He is your constant companion, and his loyalty is unmatched by any other animal--or human.

What can you do?"How to Live with a Neurotic Dog" is like a bright red fire hydrant on an otherwise dark street. This book will help you understand your dog's idiosyncrasies, such as why your canine companion insists on squeezing between you and your partner in bed, his aversion to soap and water, and the break-neck speed at which he devours his food.Inside, you'll find prescriptive techniques and sage advice for dealing with your pooch's quirks and calming his insecurities, such as: Never buy a more expensive toy for the baby than for the dog at Christmas Invite your dog to the dining table and let him know that what's yours is his and what's his is his When shopping for your canine's clothes, avoid discount stores--he'll think you're cheap In addition, you'll find a breakthrough method for keeping your dog off your bed. "How to Live with a Neurotic Dog" may not solve your relationship problems with your four-legged friend, but at least it will keep you both laughing. Read it with a dog you love.
