About The Book

New for 2020, this paperback edition of The Total Dog Manual brings over 200 invaluable tips from David Meyer, Abbie Moore and Dr Pia Stalk, operators of, the world's largest non-profit pet adoption website.

Whether a long time or first time dog owner, this 256 page guide will walk you through how to prepare your home, yourself and your family for your new best friend. Get ready to welcome a new bundle of furry canine love into your home and your heart!


Whenever you introduce a new dog into your home, allow for a several-week adjustment period when you can expect some challenges. This applies even if you are adopting a housetrained dog, but is especially true if you are getting a puppy. Although he will quickly adapt to his new family, a puppy will initially miss his mom and littermates.
It’s important to be at home as much as you can for the first few weeks to keep a constant watch on your new family member, to start the housetraining process, and begin to forge a friendship that will last a lifetime.
