There will be days when your beloved pet will look like an angel and will give you tons of smiles and laughs, and there will also times when your dog will look like a mischievous little devil that causes you frustration and a whole bunch of stress.
According to some sources and opinions from many other dog owners, one of the reasons why they feel stressed and frustrated with their dog is because some dog owners lack the understanding or the need to understand their dogs.
Many dog owners have thought; "Why is he doing this"? Or "How come she always does that"?
Believe it or not, everything that your dog does has a reason.
They're simply not doing it because they take pleasure of seeing you suffer (really!).
For this reason, Sharda Baker has dedicated her time and her efforts in helping bridging the gap a little more between dog and man. If you think about it, the more we understand our dogs the easier it will be to train and correct their behavior.
Sharda has published a collection of books and audios that discuss different aspects in raising a dog such as: dog training, potty training, dog nutrition and dog grooming.
Like other dog owners, Sharda also initially had a hard time dealing with certain aspects in raising her dogs. This gave birth to her desire to know more about dogs and make it easier for herself and for other dog owners as well.
Her dedication and hard work in researching all she could about dog training, dog grooming and dog health and nutrition gave birth to some of the most recommended dog books on the internet today.
Here are some of the most popular one below;
