Ok, so I figure it's about time I start using this English/Creative Writing degree that I've gone deeply into debt to get and thought I'd combine it with my other love, which is, of course, dogs. We all know how there are a million breed and training books and puppies for dummies books out there already. But, isn't there something missing in each of those? Isn't there always something more you wish they included? Well, I'm here to say that I will do the 'hard' part of organizing and writing the book we all wish we had with our first (and second and third) dogs and such if I can get the combined wisdom and help of the Chaz people. I'd like to do a big fat section on each of these: Nutrition (Mordy, this means you!); comparing raw vs kibble and the various types of kibbles, proper housetraining methods for puppies and older dogs adopting vs. breeder dogs, common myths or misconceptions about the more popular breeds Things Every Dog Owner Has To Know basic commands crate training Picking a vet Possible: benefits of online dog groups. and a list of the better/more popular ones Please let me know if you think I've left out anything that should be included and if you'd be willing to help me! Everyone involved will get proper citation in the necessary chapter and a special spot on the acknowledgement page.
