    less then amused

    the voices that were meant to be the dogs were very annoying, i was not amused. the information is very general and more common sense then anything. good for a first time dog owner, but uninformative for a lifetime animal owner.

    Enjoyable and informative information

    I've had dogs living with me all my life, that is over 60 years. This book just affirms how I've always raised my furry pals. A good listen, and worth while to help with solving dog problems if you follow the program. I've raised puppies, and adopted older dogs the programs works with all.

    Helpful book with cute presentation

    A loving approach to understanding dogs. Light and easy listen that warmed my heart. Lots of useful information presented to make you smile as you learn. (I'm sure any dog would give this book 4 paws & a wag.)

    For First Time Dog Owners

    This was a waste of a credit for me as it didn't address the issue that I am having with my little one. First time dog owners will benefit more from this as it gives good basic information for how to approach training and giving basic common sense solutions to things (such as not leaving things out within your dogs reach if you value them) but for experienced dog owners looking for guidance on specific issues such as mouthing, this is not your book.

    good information

    Difficult to listen to at first because the narration was slow and rhythmic, but it does pick up later in the book. Good, helpful information. I would recommend this book.
