Good Dogkeeping: Today’s Guide to Caring for Your Best Friend by Diane Morgan may not be a new book—it was published in 2005—but its chock-full of timeless advice for dog parents. It covers all the important topics, such as: what to do before you even start looking for a dog to adopt, how to keep your dog fit physically, mentally, and emotionally, and how to care for a disabled dog.
It’s clear throughout that Morgan is an avid dog lover writing for other avid dog lovers, and perhaps that is what makes her approach so accessible. She covers every issue under the sun, and makes it clear that there is absolutely no excuse for poor dog parenting. Handy and candid, it’s a total-care guide that won’t disappoint.
If you’re thinking about getting a dog, or even if you already have one and you want to learn more, Good Dogkeeping is one of the best reads out there.
