    "First Few Days--Cesar Millan Style"

    Cesar Millan's Guide to Bringing Home a Shelter Dog covers the first few days of setting up your relationship with a dog, particularly one brought from a shelter who might have known inconsistency, maybe abuse, you never know.
    It's a good guide, but keep in mind it goes by Millan's theory of doing all that you can do to be the alpha dog in the relationship. It promotes the 50-25-25 ratio that he goes by: 50% exercise, 25% discipline, and 25% affection, in that order. It's not about coddling, and always about remembering that your dog is a dog and doesn't care if it's wearing leather or rhinestones. And it's about keeping up the discipline bonding approach with obedience school training for both you and your dog/pup.
    If you're looking for a more affection/bond-based approach to living with your new companion, I suggest looking into Jennifer Arnold's works that you can find here on Audible.
    And no matter what... remember shelter dogs when you're looking for that special buddy to share your life with!

    "Short but good"

    The book is heavy on instruction and short on citation but is a good selection overall. Its easy to understand, and is a nice transition into a lengthier option. I enjoyed it and would recommend it. My fiancé and I listened to it before getting our new puppy

    "Must read for understanding dogs"

    Plenty of good information is contained in this Audible guide. Most of us are familiar with the dog whisperer and he does share with the reader some sound advice. Free from Audible I took advantage of this work and having read it think that every dog owner or those considering adopting a dog should read this. Highly educational and well written.

    "Quick study of valuable advice about bringing your shelter dog home."

    Very comprehensive concise instructions to introduce a shelter dog to their new home. It is especially useful for the novice dog parent. Provides a step by step plan for the first day as well as sage advice for establishing you as the pack leader in the first weeks with your new pup. More detailed guidance can be found in Cesar Millan's other books and On Demand TV programs.
