Let’s Talk: The Love Has No Age Limit Anniversary!


We’re celebrating the 7th anniversary of publishing Love Has No Age Limit: Welcoming an Adopting Dog into Your Home! Since its inception, over 100,000 copies have gone home with adopted dogs and their new families. This book has the answers, from what to do (and not do) the first day, week and month, why older dogs still need to be house trained the minute you bring them home, and why it can take time for some dogs to bond with you.

It also includes:Love Has No Age Limit

  • What to do before you and your new dog enter your home
  • What to expect at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months
  • How to avoid overwhelming your new dog
  • Using positive training to get started on the right paw
  • Understanding minor vs. serious behavior problems and next steps

Love Has No Age Limit was written as a labor of love to help shelters and rescues find dogs their forever homes. We’ve made the price as low as we can so these groups can give the booklet to adopters for free. We’re also offering a Buy One, Get One deal on Love Has No Age Limit for the entire month of June. If your home is already full but you’d still like to help rescue dogs find new homes, please consider donating Love Has No Age Limit to the shelter or rescue of your choice.
