While many people consider adopting a dog, they don’t necessarily always know where to begin. What to Expect When Adopting A Dog offers expert advice from a network of top pet professionals ranging from animal rescue specialists and veterinarians, to dog parents and pet business owners.

This educational tool is a one-stop shop for all questions relating to the dog adoption process, from beginning to end.

In five modules, the text guides the reader through the steps to take before, during, and after adopting a dog. Diane helps answer important questions like “Am I ready to adopt a dog?” and “Do I have the time, energy, and resources?”

Once you’ve determined that you are, in fact, ready to adopt a new dog into your home, the book provides tips on beginning your search (i.e. where to go to adopt a dog, dog adoption versus dog breeders, and what to expect at the animal shelter or rescue organization), as well as how to choose the best dog for your household, family, and lifestyle.

After finding your perfect furry match, you’ll also learn how to prepare your home and properly integrate your dog into the new environment. What’s more, the text provides advanced dog parenting advice, including life-long care tips as well as a heart-felt chapter on how to say goodbye to a pet.

With thousands of dogs waiting for a loving forever home, What to Expect When Adopting a Dog educates prospective pet parents to make the right choices, while helping make the experience smooth and enjoyable for all.
