I wrote a bit about this book on Earth Day when I posted the recipe for Herbal Flea Power. Eco Dog is a wonderful book by Corbett Marshall and Jim Deskevich. I ordered it online through amazon.ca. The book took a little while to arrive, but it was very reasonably priced at $13.83 and it was well worth the wait.
The book is stunningly laid out with lots of pictures and is full of great tips, recipes and DIY projects that will definitely keep me busy this summer. It will be a wealth of knowledge for this blog and I will test out the recipes and post about them as I do.
Book description from amazon.ca: If the family is eating organic foods, recycling, and steering clear of chemicals, why shouldn’t it be the same for Fido? Eco Dog is a comprehensive guide to nontoxic and planet-friendly dog care. It delivers information on the potential dangers of conventional pet food, grooming products, and accessories and then offers shopping tips and 25 home projects for all-natural alternatives. Rosemary Conditioner replaces chemical-laden flea collars while a Felted Dog Blanket recycles sweaters long past their prime. With cheerful photos of doggies enjoying organic treats, Eco Dog is a clear reminder that a healthy dog is a happy dog.
The book is about going green with your dog, which, as you know, Ottawa Dog Blog is all for. Everything from safe cleaning products to a tote bag for toys is covered in this book.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more ways to be environmentally friendly with their dog.
Please let me know if you know of any stores in Ottawa currently selling this book.
