Joan Capuzzi (Knack, 256 pages)

For dog owners, this book is a godsend. For the rest, it’s still a pretty good read—especially if you have a soft spot for furry friends. Capuzzi is a local small-animal veterinarian, and her puppy-training expertise is evident. It’s not just about sitting, staying and the occasional shaking; this book teaches owners how to enforce proper vehicle etiquette, exercise, good behavior and more. Puppies also trains owners to find the right vet, how to groom and how to teach tricks, even for the old dogs. Now, if only someone would write a human edition.

Thomas Eakins Head of the Schuylkill Regatta
Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 30-31

If you missed out on the Dad Vail this past spring, here’s your chance to catch more sculling action on the Schuylkill. This October marks the regatta’s 40th anniversary, and spectators are in for a treat: more than 1,200 crews made up of 5,300-plus rowers (including Olympic champions). On Saturday, races will be held for all collegiate boats, some open events, and masters’ eights and doubles. Sunday’s races are devoted to high schools and all remaining open and masters’ boats.
