Publisher's Summary

Before and After Getting Your Puppy is a simple, practical guide for anyone bringing a new puppy into the family. In clear steps, with easy-to-follow training deadlines, Dr. Ian Dunbar, who pioneered puppy classes and a loving style of dog training in the 1970s, presents a structured yet playful and humorous plan for raising a wonderful dog.

The guide is based on six developmental deadlines:

  • Completing owner education and preparation
  • Assessing a puppy's prior socialization and education
  • Teaching errorless house-training and chew-toy training
  • Completing a socialization program of meeting strange dogs and people
  • Learning bite inhibition
  • A continuing program of ongoing training

In the first half of the book, Dr. Dunbar focuses on what the owner needs to know to select a great puppy. In the second half, he presents the crucial lessons the puppy must be taught during its impressionable early development. Over time, Dr. Dunbar's kind, positive program has been proven the most effective.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Excellent for training"

    I thought I would read several books on training a puppy.
    This is the best one.

    "Essential listening for puppy-dog owners!"

    Excellent book, excellent narration. Should be required reading or listening before anyone is allowed to own a puppy or dog! I cannot emphasize enough how important the information in this book is if you want to have a well adjusted dog who is a joy to be around and is a happy member of your family.

    "Not enough substance"

    Too much repetition and not enough substance. Some good pointers, but the repetition gets monotonous.

    "Most read"

    I loved this book because it is writing with knowledge and heart.
    The writer has a lot of love and respect for dogs, and he knows what he is talking about. I think that is wonderful.
