Readers will learn how to plan for restricted exercise and how to cope in emergency situations, identify a dog's individual needs, plan a daily routine including relaxation, socialization, and mental stimulation, develop activities to replace walks, use odors and toys made of food, and assess the dog's progress. There also are guidelines for giving a dog the emotional support they need as they recover or adjust to a life of restricted activity.
I really can't say enough about how valuable this book is. Most of the authors' suggestions are very simple to employ -- minimizing slippery surfaces, creating obstacles courses, using an underwater treadmill, using interactive toys, and scattering food on the floor or lawn -- and the photographs are extremely helpful.
I hope No Walks? No Worries! receives a broad and global audience. I felt enriched as I read about how simple it is to enrich a dog's life. I'm sure dogs with special needs will thank you for your efforts to make their lives the very best they can be when they are unable do all the things they previously loved to do.
