Carol Lea Benjamin’s New Dog Blog

No one knows dogs like Carol Lea Benjamin. If you’ve been following this blog or have read Fit As Fido (and if you haven’t yet, you can still get a paw-tographed copy mailed to you!), you already know I’m one of Carol Lea Benjamin’s biggest fans! And Carol was Fit As Fido’s first celebrity spotlight!

Carol has been studying, training, living with, and writing about dogs for decades — and she definitely knows what she’s talking about! She has written my all-time favorite dog training book I give as a gift to friends who becomes new dog owners, Mother Knows Best, which also sits in my bedroom as a dog-earred reference when I bring in a new puppy or have a behavior problem. Her other terrific books include, See Spot Sit: 101 Illustrated Tips for Training the Dog You Love, Dog Training in 10 Minutes, Surviving Your Dog’s Adolescence, and more. Carol has also written the wonderful Rachel Alexander and Pit Bull Dash dog mysteries series, including The Dog Who Knew Too Much, This Dog For Hire, Without a Word, and more. I’ve read them all and they are fantastic and offer much more thoughtful and adult themes than many popular mysteries.

For a Christmas gift to myself , I’m getting Carol’s book Dog Tricks: Eighty-Eight Challenging Activities for Your Dog from World-Class Trainers.

Carol has revamped her website to offer a new, totally practical blog that you’ll definitely want to add to your RSS feed list. Click here to check out Carol Lea Benjamin’s new blog. Then join me in giving yourself a gift for Christmas that will fill you will joy all through the year — an unforgettable Carol Lea Benjamin book. There are so many, there’s sure to be one that’s not in your library yet. And believe me, they are all TERRIFIC!
