    Just what I needed., December 23, 2006

    As a total novice in the dog owning/training department I read every dog book I could get my hands on before our puppy came home. A lot of those books were good, but focused on house/obedience training an older puppy (4+ months). We were getting our puppy at 7 weeks and I just wasn’t sure what I should be doing at this early stage. This book walks you through all of your puppy’s ages starting at 8 weeks and gives you weekly projects to start working on, which I found most helpful. I now know what I can reasonably expect of such a young pup and feel that while my puppy won’t learn it all right away at least I’m not sending us down the wrong path from the very beginning. I felt comfortable with the author’s teaching style (calm, fun, easy-going, but authoritive) and relieved to know that it’s ok to get down on the floor and roll around with your new puppy without losing your puppy’s respect as her leader (as some books implied would happen). I would definitely recommend this book to anyone getting a new puppy.

    I got my first dog 4 weeks ago and wanted to learn everything there is about raising a healthy, friendly, and fun dog. The book gives you critical information about what to buy for your dog (food, chews, toys, crates), games to play with your dog to strengthen the bond, behavior expectations, suggestions to resolve common puppy issues, and what to expect the 1st year. I am unable to take my dog on walks yet because he’s not fully vaccinated, thus, the games are great. I was lost as to what to do w/my dog at home after the first 2 wks because he was obviously becoming bored with his toys. The book also helped me manage my expectations for I realized that I had many unreasonable expectations of my now 11 wk old puppy in terms of obedience and housetraining. After reading this book, I took a deep breath, relaxed, and just started having fun with my puppy. I highly recommend it to anyone who’s never had a dog before.

    I am not a professional dog trainer but found this book this book to be extremely helpful in dealing with specific behavioral issues I was having with my 15 week golden-doodle. The book as a whole is very good and the index leading to specific problems (such as “mounting”) were invaluable. There are alot of books out there, but this one is head and shoulders above the rest.
