More than 50 dog lovers and animal experts offer up stories and professional advice in a newly released book co-authored by Dr. Marty Becker: The Ultimate Dog Lover: The Best Experts’ Advice for a Happy, Healthy Dog with Stories and Photos of Incredible Canines (HCI, 2008).

Dr. Becker and co-authors Gina Spadafori, Carol Kline, and Mikkel Becker have compiled a variety of true stories about dogs—psychic dogs, heroic dogs, therapy dogs, and more—along with photos from some of the world’s best animal photographers. The authors address breeding, behavior, sports and leisure activities, preventive care, and health issues, and they answer common canine-related questions, including:

  • Why is my dog being aggressive at the dog park?
  • Why doesn’t my dog come when I call him?
  • Why does my dog chew everything that isn’t nailed down?

The book is available from Health Communications Inc. Dr. Becker has also written The Ultimate Cat Lover, Why Do Dogs Drink Out of the Toilet? and Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul. He lives and practices in Bonners Ferry, Idaho.
