* A farmer's almanac for dog owners
* Accessible advice and practical solutions for dogs at home, in the park, on the trail, and on the road
* Dog tested and owner approved, this is the people's approach to dog care

Often the best advice comes from personal experience, so who better to offer counsel on dogs than their owners? Dog Park Wisdom shares a grassroots approach to pet care, from Fido's introduction to a new baby, to the best way to remove dog stains from car upholstery, to the ultimate shoe-chewing prevention tactic.

Presented in the context of everyday life, hundreds of dog owners, dog park visitors, and folks from the "new dog economy" share hands-on wisdom and tips about the often confusing and contradictory world of dog ownership. Personal stories of advice givers and their dogs are woven throughout. Meet the dog-loving software engineer who gave up a stressful career at Microsoft to become a dog walker, and the international development worker who discovered a cure for her dog's hotspots in Uganda, which in turn helped fuel a small business project for women and girls there.
