Overview

An owner's guide to giving a puppy a successful start to life.

Puppy Bible is uniquely designed to guide new puppy owners on a week-by-week basis from the all-important planning and decision stages, up to those exciting first days at home, through the first six months of a puppy's life and beyond.

The book is divided into two parts. First, a clearly illustrated, week-by-week planner that educates the owner about a number of important topics, including:

  • The puppy's physical and mental development
  • What the owner should do at every stage of the puppy's growth
  • Newborn: 8-week countdown to puppy's arrival
  • Toddler: weeks 9 to 12
  • Juvenile: weeks 13 to 18
  • Adolescent: weeks 19 to 24
  • Six months and beyond
  • Common problems that may occur.

The information in part one is cross-referenced to part two of the book, a comprehensive encyclopedia covering all areas of puppy care with detailed expert advice on a wide number of topics, such as:

  • House training
  • General care and grooming
  • Health
  • Breed-specific considerations
  • Behavior
  • Socialization
  • Obedience training
  • Diet
  • Socialization and troubleshooting
  • Canine first aid.

When it comes to puppies, it's important to do it right from the very first day. What happens in the first sixteen weeks of its life sets the tone for the rest of the dog's life. While
Puppy Bible is designed primarily for those first 16 weeks, it will be useful at any stage of the dog's life: training needs occasional reinforcement, general care and grooming are always important, and a source of first aid care is essential.
