Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good book for first timer or a refresher for the experienced owner  Feb 22, 2006
This book has good guidelines and some good ideas. A little behind in some of the "new age" training. But worth buying.
A very helpful book, especially for a novice.  Sep 26, 2005
This book might be under the level of someone who has spent a lot of time around dogs, but for the first time owner, it is great.

The author covers a lot of topics needed for a new puppy mom or dad. I especially recommend the sections on housebreaking vs. paper training. It also works because it doesn't make assumptions about your puppy. Some dogs are dominant and some dogs are meek, and the book is stronger because not only does it take this into account, it has a guide on determining what type of personality your puppy has.

I grew up around dogs, but never trained a new puppy myself, so this was my bible for the first few months with my shih-tzu. In fact, it was out so much that it has chew marks in the corner. So, while helpful as a guide, be prepared to work with your new family member as well.
An excellent guide for first time puppy owners  Sep 12, 2005
This book is extremly helpful in assisting the reader in choosing, training and living happily with your puppy.
Good basic information, outdated training techniques  Aug 19, 2004
This book has a lot of useful information about puppy development and personality - but it recommends the choke-chain leash-correction training approach, which has been abandoned by many dog trainers. Setting up situations so the puppy gets it right and is then rewarded is much more humane than jerking the poor little one around.
Great!  Apr 11, 2001
Really loved this book. Covered just about everything you need to know.
