Accessible & Informative overview

As a soon to be puppy owner, this book has greatly increased my knowledge and confidence. It has given me a solid understanding of what to expect, how to prepare, as well as some sensible objectives, start points and a structure to adhere to. This book also dispels some commonly held myths and wades into contentious issues such raw diets and to spay or not to spay, it treats these subjects in a balanced way. It does not try to be the be all and end all, but it does provide the basis for an excellent foundation.

A Confidence Boost!

I listened to this book while preparing to welcome my very first puppy. It answered a lot of my questions and just generally made me feel more prepared. I appreciate that she gives stages of training for various goals.

And we had a close and loving 13 years, my first dog, Sudden, and I This book has helped me revive that 14-year old knowledge. But it has given me so much more. By closely combine theory and method is have given me tools that from my experience realistically can help us manage these early steps so that Pixel and I can reach even further
