What to Expect When Adopting a Dog is a guide to successful dog adoption and pet parenting for every family. Anyone considering a new dog has questions, particularly when thinking about adopting a shelter dog.

The book offers links to the best, most relevant articles from pet professionals along with some useful products, making it a one-stop shop for the most asked dog-related questions, before, during, and after adoption.

What to Expect When Adopting a Dog answers questions like:

  • Whether dog adoption is right for you

  • How to prepare your home for a new furry member
  • How to integrate your new pup into your home, family and lifestyle.
