In his #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography Breaking the Surface, Greg Louganis included loving portrayals of his protectors and closest friends: his dogs. Now Greg, a breeder and trainer of Harlequin Great Danes, has teamed up with award-winning animal writer Betsy Sikora Siino to create an extraordinary guide to dog ownership.
Greg's distinctive philosophy and practical tips -- hich have produced his best-in-breed winners -- illuminate every page of this special volume that puts the dog's best interests first. Here are insights into choosing a dog, basic care, training, exercise, and nutrition -- and an overview of every stage of a dog's life. Passionate in his opinions and wonderfully effective, Greg includes:
Cures for chewing, barking, biting, and other so-called behavior problems Answers to the great housetraining disputes -- including the pros and cons of crating Specific feeding programs for optimal nutrition -- and for combating the greatest health threat to your dog: obesity An exercise program for the canine athlete (and they're all athletes!) Training tips for obedience, showing, and search-and-rescue Preventive medicine, common illnesses from nose to tail, and age-related concerns Advice on breeding, whelping, adopting your second (third, fourth...) dog, and more!
For The Life of Your Dog is an inspiring and eye-opening reference. Delivered with Greg's delightful candor, his sound advice makes it a classic for new and long-time dog owners -- and anyone who has ever loved a dog.

MEDIA REVIEWS
People His advice about caring for four-legged family members, from birth to old age, is as carefully balanced as his spectacular dives.
Bloodlines (United Kennel Club, Inc.) This book is excellent....Well-founded and well-researched.
Seattle Times Delightfully refreshing....Give Louganis a 10 for his compassionate realism and infectious energy in this unvarnished portrait of man's best friend.
The Knoxville News-Sentinel If you are thinking about getting a dog, please check this book out first. It may affirm your decision or stop you. Either way, the dog wins.
