    Wonderful Useful Tool!

    I used this book with my shih-tzu/bichon-poo mix puppy starting at 8 weeks old. I followed all of the rituals and tips. In 3 weeks I had a house trianed pup! I'm not saying there was not the once in a while 'oopsie'. There was. But the best thing this book does is to make you understand your pups natural instinct and the way you should deal with it. If you want to train to use the door bells, this book will help you do that to.

    Excellent help for new puppy owners.

    I have housetrained many dogs over my lifetime. Some were successful, some not so much. If I had this book at the time my success rate would have been much higher. I bought this book when I got my most recent puppy. She has trained so fast I have been amazed. I would recomemnd this book to anyone with a new puppy.

    A must read!

    I would consider this book a must read for any dog owner, especially a new dog owner. I found it to be helpful, informative, and entertaining. After one week, my puppy has had very few accidents and runs to the door when I say "go potty".

    Good Advice

    A good, fast and easy read. I don't even have a dog, but now I know the tricks of housetraining (and then some) for when we do get one. This book gives you a different perspective for each situation you might encounter with a poopy pooch. It gives a step by step guide to solve problem pups, and is fun to read. The author emphasizes that many dogs go to the pound because they're not properly housetrained, and there's really no reason that an owner can't work on changing a bad situation to avoid losing your best friend because he likes to pee on the floor. Another emphasis is the fact that doggies can't remember that they pooed in the living room 4 hours ago, and when you come home angry about it, they think you hate them. It's very interesting to think of it in a different way, and it all makes sense. I would recommend Housetraining for Dummies to anyone who is even remotely interested in living happily with a loving creature, your prized pup. A little hard work in the beginning makes for a fabulous lifetime for you and your dog.

    I Can Do This

    While our two young dogs did 'their thing' to my carpet and backyard, I wondered with envy how our neighbor's beloved Corey behaved himself so well. I couldn't wait to read her secrets, and I wasn't disappointed. The book is not just 'for Dummies', but for all of us who want a problem-free life with our pets but don't have tons of free time to learn how. It's even fun reading that pee and poop are not bad words (if done in the right places).

    Accessible and comprehensive

    McCullough covers every aspect of housetraining, a very important part of living with a dog. Her writing is lively and accessible and she leaves no stone unturned. She doesn¿t shy away from any aspect of the topic and doesn¿t resort to cutesy euphemisms. Whether you¿re about to acquire a dog who will need housetraining or are already living with a dog who has potty problems, Housetraining for Dummies will provide the information you need to tackle the task.
