This is a reader-friendly, fact-filled guide to natural dog care, from food to alternative therapies to training. More and more people are embracing natural foods, alternative therapies, and nontraditional motivational techniques for themselves - and, increasingly, their pets. This groundbreaking guide shows dog lovers how to navigate the wide world of holistic canine care, from finding the best natural pet products (now a $70 million-a-year business) and evaluating alternative therapies (now an accepted part of veterinary medicine) to adopting gentle - but - effective dog training techniques. Among the topics covered: organic dog foods and special diets such as BARF (bones and raw food); canine massage, acupuncture, chiropractic and hydrotherapy; herbal remedies for dogs; eco-friendly grooming techniques; and positive training methods, such as clicker training. Complete with reviews, advice, instructions, and sources, this is an indispensable reference for anyone who wants a healthy, happy dog - the natural way. With black - and - white photos throughout. Denise Flaim (Long Island, NY) writes the "Animal House" pets column for "Newsday".
