Summary "Most pet owners want the best for their cherished friends. Sometimes, however, the nature of those relationships can be upended and getting back on track can be confusing and difficult. Here, Robert Berkelhammer provides an overview of what constitutes healthy pet family relationships and how pet parents can access services that will help facilitate better communication, behavior, and all around care. He outlines the kinds of work pet care companies can offer and guides readers to getting the best possible level of professional caretaking to achieve behavioral changes in their pets. Dog playgroups, dog walking, pet sitting and other services are described in terms of how families can work with providers to accommodate their animal and family needs. Although focused mostly on dogs, the book does also addresses the needs of and services available to cats and birds. No pet owner will want to be without this book when deciding on a pet care arrangement that suits the family's needs."--From jacket.
