Presented in a format that any dog lover will enjoy, this fun-fact book discusses twenty curious topics that have plagued the minds of dog owners for generations. From the simple, straightforward queries, "Why do dogs bark?" and "Why do dogs chew?" to the more challenging musings, "Why do dogs eat grass" and "Why do dogs howl?" More than just entertainment, owners will discover the reasons behind common training problems, including car and cat chasing, jumping up, pulling on the leash, digging, and more. For those polite dog owners afraid to ask, there are answers for you, too, to questions like "Why do dogs eat poop?" and "Why do dogs sniff butts?" Fun tidbits for everyone, plus hilarious illustrations by Keith Robinson, in this Simple Solutions book.
