I poured over 20 years' experience into my book. My goal is to save YOU time and money while raising a healthy, low-maintenance dog. There are lots of lessons-learned-the- hard-way in "Raising Dogs With Common Sense," in hopes of helping my readers. My website is an extension of my book, allowing me to share the most recent information on Nutrition and other dog-related matters. IF you have any questions that are not answered in my book, I welcome your call. To reach my Amazon purchase page, please click the BOOK photo. I am confident that this little paperback will be the best $10 you will spend as a dog owner! Thank you for your support, and for LOVING YOUR DOGS!
----------------------------------------
My book applies to ALL dog breeds, taking the dog owner from Adoption Day to the very end. Each chapter was written with much love and care.

I am thankful for breeders who share my introductory note with adoptive families. Several have made my book part of their puppy take-home package. I'm told that my book saves tons of telephone Q&A time because I equip my readers with the tools needed to raise their pup with ease. You are WELCOMED to use this photo for your convenience, on your website, FB page, and in your puppy take-home package. Many thanks for your support!
