Small Dogs, Big Hearts: A Guide to Caring for Your Little Dog

Small dogs make fantastic pets and they are a constant source of joy and companionship for their great numbers of Australian owners. With more and more celebrities seeking out a pint-sized pooch, like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, their popularity has rocketed. But how can you make sure that you are giving your pet as much love and attention as they give to you?

Small Dogs, Big Hearts: A Guide to Caring for Your Little Dog is an in-depth guide to the special needs of small dogs. It covers each stage of development from puppy to pensioner and offers advice on how to look after them along the way. The book gives essential information on areas such as socialisation, housetraining, nutrition and pampering your pooch.

Revised and updated from the original text, Small Dogs, Big Hearts includes all new information on breed specific health issues such as unhealthy knees, bad teeth, and special anaesthesia risks. It also examines genetic problems that did not exist 10 years ago but are now prevalent in some breeds.

Alongside the practical information, Small Dogs, Big Hearts covers fun topics like shopping, accessorising and travelling with your dog.

Filled with heart-melting pictures of adorable canines, this fun and informative book is a must-have for all small dog owners.
