We Can't Stay Together for the Dogs

by Jennifer Keene

This breakup guide for dogs and their humans explains how to choose dog-friendly solutions amd make compromises during a split. By integrating training tips, success stories, expert opitions, and a bit of humor, this self-help guide shows that breakups can be dog friendly. As the first book on the subject of dogs and splitting up, it features simple step-by-step directions and offers a dog-centric point of view. Figuring out who gets the dog and whether to have joint custody, split the pack, have sole custody with visitation, or place the dog with a new family is only one of the many decisions couples face. Sections on deceptively simple subjects like housing, finances, training, food, and grooming make the transition into the new lifestyle much smoother. Quizzes and checklists are provided to help determine the need for additional assistance, and the book also offers resources to find professional help. Whether you are going through a divorce, ending a long-term relationship, or splitting with a partner, this book can help. Dogs are family members who have no say in the breakup process, so dedicated pet parents need to learn to be their dogs' own advocate and respect the unique human-canine bond.
