Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos

Pin It


For our 28th book, we studied a subject close to our home and our hearts: ways to save on your dog’s care. The result is Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos!

In our research, we interviewed dog experts in all areas of dog care, from vets to groomers. Along with Paris’ academic background in Economics and our combined background in business writing, we set about finding ways dog lovers could reduce their costs while, at the same time, providing their dogs with a healthy, happy lifestyle.

The result: over 300 tips starting with obtaining your dog and continuing through all aspects of his life, from toys, treats, training and travel to food, medication, and veterinary expenses.
