Albany, New York (PressExposure) March 19, 2009 -- While dogs can be our best friend, they can also be our most daunting challenge when left unattended or without companionship. What dogs see as boredom, people see as destruction, and inadvertent though it may be, the misunderstanding has spelled the end for many a relationship.
Now, [http://www.caninekingdom.com] offers a free e-book of time-tested recommendations to help your dogâs home-alone time to be as healthy and productive as it can be.
âIn my research of dog parents, one of the biggest problems I see is what to do about your dog when you have to go to work,â says Canine Kingdom founder Mary Beth Close, âfrom guilt about leaving to concern about possible destruction, this is a long-standing issue. In our e-book we offer ideas to minimize anxiety and keep your dog entertained during your time away from home.â
Some of the topics covered in the e-book include: Environment Entertainment How to manage caregivers Avoiding and dealing with destruction
âFortunately this is an area where many experts agree,â says Close. âIn circumstances where they donât, we outline the arguments and invite feedback to help us evaluate ongoing challenges in the dog world.â
Canine Kingdom was launched last year to establish best practices for understanding dogs. Too frequently dog owners or pet parents are confused because of the amount of informationâoften contradictoryâabout how to train and deal with their dogs.
âI want dog parents to know and experience success with their dogs, and I think dog parents will find that I am asking the questions they most want to know,â says Close. To that end, Canine Kingdom will also be featuring interviews with the most successful and prolific of dog training professionals (beginning March 22). The first interview is with Patricia McConnell, PhD, certified applied animal behaviorist and author of the best-seller For the Love of a Dog.
âPatricia McConnellâs accomplishments are notable and her advice is sound and compassionate,â says Close. âWe are delighted to feature her for our premier issue.â
