Book Description

'Nothing but Dogs' is primarily an attempt to help pet-dog owners, and particularly children, to understand their dogs better, and what those same dogs need and appreciate in order to enjoy life as dogs, not merely as rather pitiful, misunderstood little adjuncts to the nursery, garden and pram. The author feels that if a child can once understand something of a dog's real nature and pleasures then he or she will be better able to grasp the right way in which to go about making their pets' lives good ones - from the dog's point of view.Chapters include: Dogs as Pals; Feeding Dogs; Exercise; Keeping Dogs Clean; And So To Bed; Terriers; Shooting-dogs; Sheep-dogs; The Long and the Short of them (Dogs Large and Small); Hounds; Foreign and Fantastic Dogs; & L'envoi.
