9780071418652: How to Live with a Neurotic Dog

This hilarious, tongue-in-cheek, self-help parody is a "musthave" for dog owners who are baffled by their dog's quirky habits and questionable conduct. Whether Fido compulsively chews up old blankets, obsessively licks the hardwood floor, or barks uncontrollably at an empty corner, bestselling humor author Stephen Baker offers "expert" advice on understanding, analyzing, and curing aberrant behavior.

The newly repackaged How to Live with a Neurotic Dog covers a wide range of neuroses, including training, grooming, traveling, and feeding freak outs. Through entertaining illustrations and sharply witty text, this canine classic will help dog owners see things from their pooch's point of view.

From the Back Cover:

Can you cure your neurotic dog?

One of the more important relationships in your life is the one you enjoy with your dog. He is your constant companion, and his loyalty is unmatched by any other animal--or human. But no matter how much time you spend with Fido or how many rawhides you buy for him, he always seems moody, in need of constant reassurance, and overly suspicious of the cat. What can you do?

How to Live with a Neurotic Dog is like a bright red fire hydrant on an otherwise dark street. This book will help you understand your dog's idiosyncrasies, such as why your canine companion insists on squeezing between you and your partner in bed, his aversion to soap and water, and the break-neck speed at which he devours his food.

Inside, you'll find prescriptive techniques and sage advice for dealing with your pooch's quirks and calming his insecurities, such as:

  • Never buy a more expensive toy for the baby than for the dog at Christmas
  • Invite your dog to the dining table and let him know that what's yours is his and what's his is his
  • When shopping for your canine's clothes, avoid discount stores--he'll think you're cheap
  • In addition, you'll find a breakthrough method for keeping your dog off your bed.

How to Live with a Neurotic Dog may not solve your relationship problems with your four-legged friend, but at least it will keep you both laughing. Read it with a dog you love.

From the Inside Flap:

NOW, AT LAST, YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR DOG
You think your life is crazy. Try looking at the world through your dog's big melting brown eyes. If your dog is neurotic (and what dog isn't these days?), consider these helpful pointers:
· Don't interrupt your dog's naps—remember, he needs your bed far more than you do.
· Don't force your dog to play fetch just because you feel like it—keep in mind his busy schedule too.
· Never bark orders at your dog. "Please" and "thank you" work wonders with the neurotic dog.
· Give your dog a canine personality quiz—it's the first step before starting him on full-fledged psychoanalysis.
· If all else fails, feed him!

Stephen Baker's delightful HOW TO LIVE WITH A NEUROTIC DOG is sure to have both you and your canine companion rolling on the floor and begging for more.
