New York, NY (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
There are 75 million dog owners in the United States, and 15 million dogs are abandoned each year along the road, or in animal shelters across America because of behavioral problems such as excessive barking, aggression, or just being unruly. They were cute little puppies at first, but as they grow up without proper training, they become a throw away.
Internationally acclaimed pet expert and author, Bash Dibra, offers ways to prevent this in his new book "Your Dream Dog: A Guide to Finding the Right Dog for You."
The most important thing to remember is that before you even think about buying a dog you find out which breed fits your lifestyle, whether you live in the country or the city.
Bash suggests visiting a dog show in your area. When you spot a breed you are attracted to, consult his book to find out if this dog is right for you.
This popular bred of two different dogs -- Labradors and poodles, or cocker spaniels are some of the breeds of choice. One of Bash's clients has a cock-a-poo. Copelia has already appeared on TV on Dateline, CBS The Early Show, ABC News and the Montel Williams show among others. She was 9 months old, and now at the age of 2 years, she's a "Star Pet."
Bash urges visiting a local pet adoption center for not only mutts, but sometimes they also have pure breds. These dogs are just waiting to be adopted into a loving home, and you just might find your "dream dog" here.
Whatever you choose, Bash urges you to train your dog to be a Canine Good Citizen. He believes both the owner and dog should be trained together. If you don't live in the New York area and are unable to hire Bash in person, his books "Dog Training by Bash" and "Teach Your Dog to Behave," will teach you his tried and true methods. All of Bash's books are available on his website http://www.bashdibra.com (personally autographed by Bash) or major bookstores around the country.
Bash is an animal behaviorist, a renowned author of six books "Teach Your Dog to Behave; Dog Training By Bash, DogSpeak, CatSpeak; Your Dream Dog: A Guide to Choosing the Right Breed for You," and StarPet "How To Make Your Pet A Star, " as well as a video/DVD "Teach Your Dog to Behave" for sale on his website at http://www.bashdibra.com, or in major bookstores. He presented his "Star Pet" awards to Lassie for the Star dog and Morris the cat for the Star cat at the Bide-A-Wee Kibbe Awards in New York City .
