Christie’s Review


Owning a dog can bring a lot of joy and happiness, but it can also and is hard work at times. I know this myself as I share my home with my two beautiful girls, Honey and Lily! Gina Harley has come up with a great guide to picking your dog, care throughout their life, and when it comes that heartbreaking time of telling your best friend good-bye.

She includes some great tips, and she doesn’t pretend to be an expert. Sure, there will be things in here that not everyone agrees with, but I think that is true with any book of the same nature. The author is from Australia, so there are some terms that are different here in the US, but I knew what she meant.

I really thought the book was great for any dog owner. I want to highlight the two sections that grabbed me, and it’s on the more emotional level. Almost every guidebook on owning dogs always highlight the important responsibility of having a dog. She spoke to me my emotions. She really asked some important questions of why you want to add a dog to your family. You don’t get one because you are bored. In addition, she asks you to really think about the financial responsibility you are taking on…treats, food, medical care, toys, etc. These are all important questions everyone should ask before adding a dog to your household.

The second section is the part about saying your final good-bye to our best friend. Some guide books don’t include this. In my opinion, this is one of the most important things to consider when owning a dog. You never really think about this when you are bringing them home, but it’s something we all will face. It’s hard and it’s painful. I have tears in my eyes as I write this because I have had to say that painful good-bye to two most wonderful boys I have been blessed to share my life with, Hunter and Hershey. She is very honest about the pain we all experience. You are losing a member of your family.  She even goes so far to offer advice on when it’s time to bring another one home.

This is a great guide to owning a dog, and she offers a free dog bundle pack at the end of the book. It’s a great practical guide that also speaks to your heart!

Gina recently discovered her writing passion and wanted to create the ultimate guidebook that would support, educate and inspire pet parents and yet to be pet parents around the world. Gina and Harley are originally from Australia, where the weather is always beautiful. This is Gina’s first book and looks forward to writing many more to help fellow pet-parents; with her fur-baby Harley by her side.
