About the Author
Dorothee Dahl lives with her husband, her dogs, Shetland ponies and some sheep in the Lower Rhine region of Germany. Her experience with her own old dogs inspired her to deal intensively with the topic and thus convince fellow dog-owners that the time spent with senior dogs is something very special
This is an indispensable guide to create the good life with your older dog. Anyone who is lucky enough to have a dog will sooner or later experience what can be a very special time: the beloved four-legged friend’s old age. This book sets out ideas on how you’ll make your dog’s senior years particularly enjoyable, and gives consideration to the older dog’s special needs all the way through this life phase. Readers will learn about the needs that old dogs have, the entire changes that can occur and how you can make sure that the senior dog stays fit and healthy for so long as imaginable. Here you’ll find valuable tips on feeding the elderly dog, dealing with behaviours that are typical in old age, and communicating with canine seniors that can no longer see or hear so well. All in all, it is a comprehensive guidebook for owners and carers of old dogs for wonderful golden years.
