    Great Book, simplifies training! I'm a Registered Veterinary Tec

    Great Book, simplifies training! I'm a Registered Veterinary Technician. I have used this book as a reminder of what to do & not to do while training my puppies & foster puppies. Even though I've read the book & used it before, I still go back to it to look things up as I train each puppy. I love how simple the book is and that you can read a chapter in a short time and immediately practice with your dog. I also recommend this book to all the clients that come in with a new puppy or call with puppy questions. I have also given this book to family & friends & it really helped them with their puppies & young adopted shelter dogs. It helps you teach the basics from the time you bring your puppy home.

    Could have been better, Could have been worse

    I got this book with our new puppy and it just didnt seem to talk about anything but common sense things that people I would think would generally know. The suggestions given, might work for some dogs but it was very basic, maybe a little too basic!
