In his #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography Breaking the Surface, Greg Louganis included loving portrayals of his protectors and closest friends: his dogs.

Greg's distinctive philosophy and practical tips -- hich have produced his best-in-breed winners -- illuminate every page of this special volume that puts the dog's best interests first. Here are insights into choosing a dog, basic care, training, exercise, and nutrition -- and an overview of every stage of a dog's life. Passionate in his opinions and wonderfully effective, Greg includes: * Cures for chewing, barking, biting, and other so-called behavior problems * Answers to the great housetraining disputes -- including the pros and cons of crating * Specific feeding programs for optimal nutrition -- and for combating the greatest health threat to your dog: obesity * An exercise program for the canine athlete (and they're all athletes!) * Training tips for obedience, showing, and search-and-rescue * Preventive medicine, common illnesses from nose to tail, and age-related concerns * Advice on breeding, whelping, adopting your second (third, fourth...) dog, and more! For The Life of Your Dog is an inspiring and eye-opening reference. Delivered with Greg's delightful candor, his sound advice makes it a classic for new and long-time dog owners -- and anyone who has ever loved a dog.
