Sleeps with Dogs: Tales of a Pet Nanny at the End of Her Leash


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.
