I am getting a Bernese Mountain dog in a few months so I felt the need to prepare. Having never owned my own dog before, I wanted to do as much research as possible. This book provides so much information that I feel better prepared for my pup. I'll refer back to it when the time nears so I can be the best dog owner possible. This book has gotten me very excited about dog ownership. The stories and ways they speak about dogs is truly inspirational.
