Featured Ebook: Caring for Dogs
The friendship between humans and dogs is one of the oldest in history. From archeological findings, it is known that the first dog (Canis familiaris) domesticated by humans was in fact a wolf (Canis lupus). Dogs did not become domesticated through force, there was a friendship and mutual benefit of the relationship which enabled both to eat and therefore survive.

This book covers all of the aspects of caring for the needs of dogs, both physically and psychologically.
