New pet owners need lots of advice on how to care for their animals. In the Happy Healthy Pet series, experts write about not just the history and temperament of the pet, but about illnesses, feeding and grooming, and specific care requirements. The books are full of info-packed tips and sidebars as well as nearly 100 professional-quality color photographs per title.

At last, a book about your pet that emphasizes total care, training and companionship! You'll not only learn about the species-specific traits of your special pet, you'll also learn what the world's like from your pet's perspective; how to feed, groom and keep your pet healthy; and how to enjoy your pet through training and activities you can do together. The Akita is written by a breed expert and includes a special chapter on training by Dr. Ian Dunbar, internationally renowned animal behaviorist, and chapters on getting active with your dog by longtime Dog Fancy magazine columnist Bardi McLennan. Best of all, the book is filled with info-packed sidebars and fun facts to make caring for your pet easy and enjoyable.
