A city dog has to remain healthy with limited exercise, should be bred to live with people, cannot have such sharp hearing that a car backfire is actually painful or so high strung that the normal hustle-bustle of city life is unendurable. In this timely resource book, Pat Farley shares her decades as a "working mother" of an array of city dogs, helps readers choose the right dog for them and their lifestyle, offers "shop smart" tips for buying pet products, and presents a viable training program for both puppies and adopted older dogs. She guides readers through "city" manners, street smarts, travelling, and every aspect of an active urban lifestyle for dogs and their owners. The book also includes a chapter on handling illness and emergencies and a great appendix of resources. This comprehensive guide tells you everything you need to know to select, raise, and live with a happy dog in the city -- including Dog Breed Selection Chart, Personal Pet Selection Tests, Emergency Help Kit, Travel Resources, and more.
