From Library Journal:

Stern, North Shore Animal League America spokesperson and Long Island Bulldog Rescue member (and wife of radio personality Howard Stern), has written a comprehensive guide to dog ownership. Every aspect of companion animal care is covered, beginning with selecting a purebred puppy from a breeder or an older dog from a shelter and concluding with end-of-life considerations. Training, behavior, grooming, bonding, health maintenance, and nutrition are explained in minute detail. Stern's chatty tone and language can be easily understood by inexperienced owners. She is not a veterinarian, behaviorist, trainer, or groomer, but her passion for dogs has led her to amass a great deal of knowledge, and she draws on and cites her extensive network of experts to validate her assertions. VERDICT An excellent resource for patrons that complements Ian Dunbar's Before & After Getting Your Puppy and Kristin Mehus-Roe's The Original Dog Bible. Highly recommended. [For more dog-training guides, see Kristine Alpi's Short Takes, LJ 4/15/10, p. 101.-Ed.]-Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
