Product Description

At Last! A Beginner’s Guide to Canine Technology
 
Pee stains on the carpet. Barking at all hours of the night. That embarrassing thing he does with your leg. It’s enough to make you cry out, “Why doesn’t my dog have an owner’s manual?” And now, thankfully, he does.
 
Through step-by-step instructions and helpful schematic diagrams, The Dog Owner’s Manual explores hundreds of frequently asked questions: Which breeds interface best with children? How can I program my model to fetch? And why is its nose always wet? Whatever your concerns, you’ll find the answers right here—courtesy of celebrated veterinarian Dr. David Brunner and acclaimed author Sam Stall. Together, they provide plenty of useful advice for both new and experienced dog owners.

From Publishers Weekly

Veteran veterinarian Brunner points out that "while most…highly developed consumer products come with instruction manuals, dogs do not"; he remedies that situation with this cleverly arranged and eye-catching little volume. Organized like a standard set of operating instructions (but with much cuter illustrations, by Paul Kepple and Jude Buffum of Headcase Design), the book takes readers through a "parts list," an overview of makes and models, home "installation," programming (i.e., training), fuel requirements, maintenance and more. Brunner’s advice is straightforward and easy to understand, and it covers—if sometimes only briefly—just about any situation a dog owner might face. The authors highlight cautionary tips, and provide diagrams to illustrate processes such as trimming a dog’s nails and transporting an injured dog. With this guide, readers will find it easier to get a handle on their complicated canine.

About the Author

A veterinarian for 25 years and operator of Indianapolis’s Broad Ripple Animal Clinic for 22 years, Dr. David Brunner specializes in treating small animals—cats and dogs. He has two daughters, Molly and Kendell, and two black Labrador retrievers, Lucy and Noel, both of whom come to work with him every day. Sam Stall is the coauthor of As Seen On TV: 50 Amazing Products and the Commercials That Made Them Famous and Dirty Words of Wisdom. He resides in Indianapolis with his three terrier mixed-breeds, Tippy, Katie, and Gracie, as well as his wife, Jami (who has no terrier blood whatsoever), and their cat, Ted. Paul Kepple and Jude Buffum are better known as the Philadelphia-based studio Headcase Design. Their work has been featured in many design and illustration publications, such as American Illustration, C ommunication Arts, and Print. Paul worked at Running Press Book Publishers for several years before opening Headcase in 1998. Both graduated from the Tyler School of Art, where they now teach. While illustrating this book, Jude acquired a Boston terrier named Huxley, which he has since programmed to sit, stay, roll over, and mix cocktails. Paul’s dog, an imaginary Jack Russell named Crackers, was last seen romancing a pair of running shoes.

Bought this book as kind of a joke for my mom, who recently adopted a cat, but she said the information in it taught her things she never knew, despite having cats for decades. She insisted I read it, as I now have foster kittens, and I thought I "knew it all" as well. But I didn''t! Entertaining and informative, and easy to just skip around to the chapter you''d like to read. (Doesn''t have to be a "front to back" book.) Kudos!

This is our summer of kittens, and this is one of the books my son studied to learn all he could. Must''ve done the trick, because he is now our resident "Kitten Whisperer." He can tell when they are roughhousing and really fighting, when a cat is happy or annoyed, by the crook of their tails, noises they make, etc.

Really great content, written in an easily digestible format. I will read this back and forwards and keep it for reference. HOWEVER there is quite a lot of stylistic "cute" computer oriented language thrown in there. Like I get the point of this book that you''re comparing a dog to a machine to be operated, I get it, it''s cute. But when it gets interspersed on every page and replaces actual dog vocabulary it gets really confusing and annoying.

I bought this book in preparation for adopting my first kitten. The book provided me with all sorts of information that I didn''t know but needed to know about cats. It helped dictate my decisions for things like food, toys ,and keeping my condo safe for my new kitten. I did think it was a bit weird how they basically wrote it as an operation manual but it was clear so I can''t complain too much.

I have ordered pretty much all of these owners instruction manual books, including the bride, newlywed, cat, groom and baby books. All of the them have been gifts for others, and they all have enjoyed them. This one was ordered for my boyfriend a few months after we rescued a dog together, he enjoyed it. All of the books are absolutely hilarious and are a great gift for someone who has a humor side. Not only do they actually give good advice, and walk you through stages on the topic, they give it to you in a legit understanding way but with a comedian manor. Even if you get the book for someone who isn''t much of a reader, the pictures and demonstration are pretty humorous. Would definitely recommend for anyone with has a funny side, and need a simple add on to make them laugh about things they are expecting or having in life.

For the price of this book, I was expecting an A4 manual to arrive, so I was slightly put out to find a book less than an A5 size. Once I opened the book, that is where the disappointment stopped. The book is absolutely fantastic. I read it cover to cover over the period of two nights and now have it at my disposal to dip in and out of as needed. I am not at all new to cats, but it is some 20 years since I have had kittens running around the house, so I thought a refresher book would be a good idea before I welcome two little fluffballs into my life again. With having a lot of adult cat experience, I could tell straight away this is a quality book containing trustworthy and accurate information. The style of the book is at times hilarious and for the most part, smile-provoking. The book really has been written like an instruction manual for a piece of hardware and has an entertainment value to it. Titles like ''Diagram and Parts List, basic programming, fuel requirements, exterior maintenance are amusing, but wait until you see the diagrams throughout, they are hilarious. Fun aside, though, it is a thoroughly informative book that leaves nothing to chance and no stone unturned. It is jam-packed with all the information you need to know in order to welcome a kitten or adult cat into your life and learn all you need to know to keep them safe and nurture them throughout their lives. It''s not a read once, file away type book; it will be handy as a superb reference manual for many years to come. Well worth the £12 price point.

If you are a car owner/cat owner then this book will be perfect for you. It is just like a small car service manual for cats! Very easy to follow and understand. A small but heavy book full of information. Excellent reading.
