Passionate in his opinions and wonderfully effective, Greg includes:
    • Cures for chewing, barking, biting, and other so-called behavior problems
    • Answers to the great housetraining disputes -- including the pros and cons of crating
    • Specific feeding programs for optimal nutrition -- and for combating the greatest health threat to your dog: obesity
    • An exercise program for the canine athlete (and they're all athletes!)
    • Training tips for obedience, showing, and search-and-rescue
    • Preventive medicine, common illnesses from nose to tail, and age-related concerns
    • Advice on breeding, whelping, adopting your second (third, fourth...) dog, and more!
