Taking the Biscuit


Leicester - Leicestershire - England


LEICESTER, England - Jan. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Taking the Biscuit is the hilarious tail (oops, tale) of Fizz’s first year with his humans. His journey takes readers through the ups and downs of house training, coping with Bonfire Night and other bizarre human rituals, puppy school, neutering and separation issues (Fizz’s Nana can’t bear to be away from him for long…) This helpful guide covers topics you won’t find in other training books, such as: choosing a vet, pet insurance, communication practices with other dog lovers, which poo bags to buy (important – seriously!) and much more. It emphasises the significant commitment, time and cost involved to give a dog a good home. Having a dog involves far more mud, trips to the vet and hairy lasagne than expected, and Fizz and his owner Helen wanted to share their story.

Anyone who has ever loved a dog will enjoy Taking the Biscuit. Dog owners and anyone considering getting a dog will need this book. If more people act responsibly around animals, then there won’t be a need for dog wardens and fewer dogs will end up in shelters, relying on charity and waiting for someone lovely to come along and rescue them. Donations from sales go to aid animal rescue.

“There are no books that I can find that roll up a full year’s worth of living with a dog. All the training books we read seemed to neglect the fact that the key ingredients to a happy co-existence between humans and canines are time, patience and lots of love. Dogs end up in shelters because people don’t understand the cost or commitment needed. I adore my dog and wish all animals could live in a world of kindness and respect,” says Helen.

“Fizz explains the futility of attempting to impose human capitalist values on a puppy who frankly, couldn’t care less about the difference between Prada and a plantpot!” Dogs Monthly

The monotony of a desk job for over 35 years drove Fizzbomb Biscuit-Birkett’s owner Helen to be an avid observer of the funnier side of life. A while ago, she qualified as a Training Development Manager and found regular training manuals very dull. Helen is passionate about responsible pet ownership and was inspired by write Taking the Biscuit when, after the arrival of Fizzbomb, she realised that a lot of training and information books were as dull as ditch-water and decided to change that.
