Your Rottweiler's Life
Your Complete Guide to Raising your Pet From Puppy to CompanionBook - 1999
As a caring Rottweiler owner, you want the best for your pet. But you may not know all the special steps you need to take to raise a happy, healthy Rottweiler. Your Rottweiler's Life was written with one purpose in mind: to give you the most up-to-date information and guidance you need about the health, nutrition, training, and care of your dog. Reviewed by a nationally known veterinarian, this book shows you how to give your Rottie the best life possible--whether you've just welcomed a new puppy into your family or adopted an older dog. Inside--what every Rottweiler owner wants to know: • Is a Rottweiler the right dog for me? • How do I choose the best food for all stages of my Rottweiler's life? • Do Rottweilers make good companions for children? • What's the best way to house-train my dog? • How do I teach my dog to come when I call? • Will my Rottweiler get along with my other pets? • How do I teach my dog not to chew on furniture and dig up the yard?
