    Lessons in Kindness

    The Puppy Whisperer is full of great ideas on how to Kindly guide your Puppy with a focus on compassion. I especially like how the book gives us points to consider even before adopting a Puppy. Very well written and wonderfully informative.

    Puppy Whisperer

    read this book! Puppy Whisperer came out just as I had decided it was time for a new puppy. I read the book with great excitement, as I haven't had a puppy in a very long time. The delivery of the information was easy to read and really interesting. I am a very compassionate person and want to practice the right training with my new puppy Gracie, I want us both to be happy and Mr. Owens and Mr. Crannendock explain everything perfectly! So far, it has been a wonderful journey with my sweet little baby. Thank you so much for writing such a helpful book.

    Great Basics and Fundamentals

    I've owned dogs before, but recently adopted an 8-week-old puppy. I needed to brush up on those basics that we often forget after the puppy stages are long past. This book is just what I needed to start over again with a young canine. I know I will refer to it frequently when I need to review my pup's and my own progress.

    Terrific, easy to understand ideas and quick to put into use. Best of the simple training books I've used.

    An easy to read book and easy to use to reference particular issues. Good before and during training. I highly recommend it.

    Puppy Whisperer

    I went to the SPCA and got a little tiny puppy, I had no idea that they needed so much attention. I immediately went on line and found this wonderful book by Paul and Terry. They really helped me get through the tough times of chewing and running around like crazy. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is thinking about getting a puppy.
