This is the tenth book in the series and the first book that I have read. It can be read as a standalone as I had no problem understanding the characters. The description of the area and activities was complete. I understood the descriptions of the dog day businesses. I especially like the lawyer, Renzo Fisher. There is information that I found hard to credit. There is first-class information on selecting a day care or kennel for your animal.
