Urban Dog

Product Code: BOOKS055

Owning a dog in the city has a completely different set of challenges than owning a dog in a rural or suburban setting.

The city is full of distractions for your dog such as congestion, noise, crowds of people, cars, buses, bicycles, rollerbladers, trash, sewers, alleys, roadways and other dogs.

Where you can exercise your dog is limited, and maneuvering a dog through city streets and across busy roadways is often hazardous.

Rat poison sprinkled in alleyways, garbage thrown on the sidewalk and around garbage bins, and city puddles filled with unknown substances are all threats to your dog's health.

In this book, Cis Frankel, an urban dog trainer best known for training Oprah Winfrey's cocker spaniel, teaches owners what is proper dog etiquette in urban areas and explains how to deal with the specific difficulties of training and living with a dog in the city.

Believing that the best city dog is a well-trained dog.

Cis explores the basics of puppy training (housebreaking, obedience, basic commands) and then delves into the particularities of training and owning a dog in the city.

The informative and accessible text covers collars and leash handling, housebreaking in a high-rise, navigating parks, crowds and roadways to create street-smart dogs, stressful situations to avoid, and healthcare specifics for city dogs.

This one-of-a-kind book shows how to get the most out of your dog while living in the city, and how to get the most out of the city for your dog.
