EverythingDogBlog: Four Great Reads (in progress)

DogEvals hasn’t posted a review for a couple of weeks because we have been busy adjudicating a literary award and reading the 15 books, BUT we wanted to let you know what we have begun.

Stay tuned in the next few days for our Best Books of 2016 in various categories from  this year’s posted reviews.

And right now the four reviewers at DogEvals are reading four wonderful books so we wanted to whet your appetite for January’s reviews.

The books are (in no specific order) Stepdog: A Memoir,
by Mireya Navarro (Putnam, 248 pages, 2015, $26.95), a wonderfully funny tale about a stepmom who married a man with a dog that is not very lovable (caveat: the author does not use gentle  dog-friendly methods of training),

Sit Stay Heal: How an Underachieving Labrador Won Our Hearts and Brought Us Together,
by Mel Miskimen (Sourcebooks, $15.99, 285 pages, 2016), another remarkably humorous story of recovering from a death in the family via a black lab who is resilient enough for all (caveat: this book also does not use the gentle training methods recommended by DogEvals),

The Midnight Dog Walkers: Positive Training and Practical Advice for Living with a Reactive or Aggressive Dog,
by Annie Phenix (i-5 Publishing, 224 pages, 2016, $19.95), a book that puts you smack-dab in the middle of the non-fiction story and also gives the solution when you have a ‘difficult’ dog, and

The Pit Bull Life: A Dog Lover’s Companion, by Deirdre Franklin and Linda Lombardi (Countryman Press, 232 pages, 2017, $21.95), a delightful combination of photo and fact.
