This comprehensive guide also includes step-by-step advice for bringing a new dog into your household: preparing for a new dog's arrival, tips for a smooth transition into the household, introducing him or her to your family, and acclimating your dog to his or her new world.

Fun games you can play with your dog offer both opportunities for bonding and a chance to practice rules and boundaries within a defined structure.
