American Humane Association National Ambassador and board member Steve Dale has just announced that he has published two new e-books in time for the holidays detailing tips for tackling some of the most common issues dog and cat owners encounter. “Good Dog,” and, you guessed it, “Good Cat,” are each formatted as a Q&A with inquiries from real-life pet owners who’ve come to Steve with their dilemmas. Always game for a challenge, Steve answers each question with helpful advice and always in good humor.
“Good Dog” contains questions ranging on the most common of dog issues such as separation anxiety and aggression toward other people and pooches, but also has a section on some more unusual issues, such as canine grieving and getting your reluctant dog to suit up on Halloween or whenever he or she may need to don a costume — Rudolph the Red-Nosed Retriever, anyone?
The latter edition is much the same, this time looking at things from a feline perspective. Steve addresses queries on excessive scratching, litter box issues and aggression while also providing tips on adoption and welcoming a new cat into the household.
Each book is available on all major eReader devices and platforms ($2.99), while there is also an “enhanced” version for iPad ($4.99) which features videos from Steve and more!
Finally, I want to congratulate Steve on being named the Ms. Meowsky’s Pet Citizen of the Year, awarded by the Barker & Meowsky pet products company. In honor of Steve, they’ve created the Steve the Happy Reindeer toy for dogs. These tuggable, chewable plush reindeer are the perfect last-second stocking stuffer for that certain four-legged friend in your life. Best of all, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these toys will benefit the Lucy Fund, which supports the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ Animal-Assisted Therapy Category.
Congratulations again to Steve Dale, who has had a very busy holiday season!
