I was going through tough times when I decided to adopt a dog. It wasn’t a spontaneous decision based on my emotional instability; I was planning to do it since I was a kid, actually. My dad is allergic to dog hair, so having one was out of the question. Back then, I decided to get a dog as soon as I move to a separate apartment.
When Amy appeared, fear hung upon me. I knew nothing about dogs, literally. What to start with, what they eat, where and how long they sleep, let alone all the training that was ahead. In a word, I desperately needed help.
Apart from numerous YouTube videos and advice from some of my friends, aka dog lovers, sure thing, I got a few books. Some of them were of real value, so I decided to make a list and share my thoughts on each. Hopefully, they’ll be of use for first-time dog parents and, at least, eliminate the fear of the unknown.
