I met the author of the book, "Top Dog's Top Tips For Tip Top Dog Care" at a recent networking event and when I found out that she was a dog lover, well it was only natural that we started talking! Author, Eileen Proctor, was speaking to the group about ways to get your name in the media. She speaks to entrepreneurs and pet lovers alike. Because of her involvement in animal rescue and myriad animal causes, she penned this book of tips.
The book, written in a light, breezy and humorous style, offers common sense tips and advice. In the section, Adding Fur Friends to Your Family, Proctor covers items such as why rescue animals make such amazing family members to how to introduce your new fur friends to current furry family members.
She writes about items pet owners commonly face: pets scared of storms, how to take care of your pet in both hot and cold weather, water safety, travel advice and holiday pet safety. The section on her dog being afraid of storms made me think of what I do with Henrietta when she gets scared. I pick her up, coddle her and try to comfort her — which common sense tells me only leads to her not overcoming a fear because of the love she gets. I would have been better served to let her self-soothe and take comfort in the cave-safety of her crate. Thank goodness Henrietta is tiny enough that if I have to carry her around for a while because she's scared that it's not a problem.
The book is written in bite-sized chunks of information. If you're looking for a book that offers information about How to Hike with Your Hound, How To Care For A Senior Dog, to Pooch Pleasing Recipes and Tailwaggin' Trivia, this book is for you; your four legged furry friend will certainly thank you!
