Summary

Go behind closed doors and discover the secret lives of some of the most devoted pet owners, whether they’re feeding their dogs home-cooked meals or leaving Animal Planet on all day to keep their pets company.

As a round-the-clock animal nanny, Lindsey Grant shared a bed with countless dogs, cooked custom meals for exotic birds, broke up brawls between animals and spouses alike, weathered end-of-life care for beloved companions, and catered to the often obscure needs of her charges—and the bizarre demands of their owners. She offers a hilarious inside look at the pet care industry and the lengths people will go to for their furry friends.

With a cast of unforgettable characters, from a toast-loving cockatiel to a gassy greyhound, Sleeps with Dogs is filled with tales of pets and those who love them.
