I would highly recommend getting a couple of dog training books rather than one. I haven't found one that gives me all the information that I need. If you are looking for a great second book, I would recommend "Good Owners, Great Dogs". Happy training.

In desperation, I called him and he came over and did the exact evaluation that he uses in this book to decide which personality type of dog I had. ( arrrghhhhh! ...I had grown up with wonderful, sweet tempered, placid dogs but this puppy was an "experience" I hope I never repeat--she was the most neurotic creature since Woody Allen! ).
For a small (ha, ha, ha) fee, a trainer was sent over to teach me to control my dog. Thank heavens. Obedience training is a must for any dog, as is stressed in this book. The family/puppy bond does come first, however, as is also stressed in this book.
I am about to get a new dog for the first time in years...for my family to love and enjoy. I was happy to be able to purchase this book and know that I will be able to understand the philosophy behind having a puppy join the family, and how to properly train our new member. --Because, even though it's been years, when Margolis trains you to properly train your dog, you don't forget.

This book is thick for a reason. It covers nearly every medical condition, disease and ailment that you can think of. It also provides solid information on normal dog growth and development, feeding, and home health remedies.
HOWEVER, if you are looking for a user-friendly, easy-to-read, "For Dummies"-type canine medical reference, THIS IS NOT IT. I strongly disagree with some other reviewers who say otherwise. "The Book of Dogs" rivals your average human medical reference guide -- full of medical jargon and technical terms. I cannot find my way through this book without constant use of the glossary and index in the back. And I find myself sifting through page after page trying to locate the exact information I'm looking for. Not user-friendly at all -- especially in an emergency.
(By the way, I AM an educated -- albeit non-medical -- professional, and I STILL have problems understanding this book!)
Unless your dog has some kind of serious medical condition(s) -- my dog, for instance, has Sebaceous Adenitis, a rare auto-immune disease -- for which you need more detailed information, you don't really need this book. You (and your dog) are better off with a book like "What Your Dog Is Trying To Tell You: A Head-to-Tail Guide to Dogs' Symptoms And Their Solutions" by Stephanie Pedersen and John Simon.
