    Product Description-The Seven Ages of Man's Best Friend: A
    Comprehensive Guide to Caring for Your Dog Through All the
                          Stages of Life
  Do our dogs experience the equivalent of infancy and puberty? Do they go through the terrible teens or struggle with midlife
   crises? And what can we do to ensure they take each step in stride? In The Seven Ages of Man's Best Friend, bestselling
 author Jan Fennell leads us through the key phases of a dog's development by uniquely defining the seven ages of our dogs:
 the buoyant, boundless energy of the Puppy and the Pioneer, the troublesome teens that are the ages of the Playboy and the
 Protégé, the difficult middle years of the Pretender and the Protector, and the twilight years of the Pensioner. The book offers
advice on all the problems that crop up at particular times in a dog's development, including training and vaccinations as well as
   puberty and parenthood. In The Dog Listener, Jan Fennell changed the way we think about our dogs. Now, Jan once more
                     challenges conventional thinking and puts forward an alternative view of the dog's world.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful good overall guide to owning a dog, December 20, 2007 By Hannah's Mom
(Minneapolis MN)
This review is from: The Seven Ages of Man's Best Friend: A Comprehensive Guide to Caring for Your Dog Through All the
Stages of Life (Paperback) This book covers everything from your first day with your puppy to dealing with old age in the dog,
training suggestions, the "forgetful" adolescent, things to watch for healthwise at different ages of the dog. I found it to be a good
basic guide for living with a dog and have bought a number of them to give as presents to present and "maybe someday" dog
owner friends. The training basics show you how to communicate in the dog's language (canine) so it understands what you
want it to do and will willingly follow your direction. Friends have been pleased to find how quickly their dogs have responded to
the training. I had used many of the same principles starting 14 years ago with my dog and understand now why they worked,
and she was a polite, well-mannered dog.

  This review is from: The Seven Ages of Man's Best Friend: A Comprehensive Guide to Caring for Your Dog Through All the
Stages of Life (Paperback) I own lots of information books about dogs, and this was a good addition to my collection. I enjoyed
reading this book.

Interesting, but more on old "dominance" concepts, February 26, 2011 By Anna (Iowa)
This review is from: The Seven Ages of Man's Best Friend: A Comprehensive Guide to Caring for Your Dog Through All the
Stages of Life (Paperback) An up and coming trend in dog training and behavior is the redefinition of Alpha (see studies done by
David L. Mech) and the use of positive re-enforcement type techniques. This book does NOT keep up with those.In terms of
defining life stages, it is interesting, however the training style is not something I would use. I prefer those of Jean Donaldson,
Patricia B. McConnell, and Karen Pryor.
