Brian and Sarah make the idea of bringing a new puppy home seem well worth the work and effort. They make training fun for not only the handler, but also the puppy. The game style format of training really helps in that area. The DVD is very helpful for visual learners who need to see the "training" in practice.Out of the 4 other books that I have read recently on this same topic this book was by far the best!If you are even thinking about bringing a puppy home, this is the book/DVD to buy.

As a dog owner, and animal enthusiast, coming across the book is the best thing that's ever happened to me. This book should be handed to every puppy owner on the planet. It is the most sensible, complete easily understood book on how to deal with all those puppyish moments that I've ever read. Full of ideas on how to tackle puppy-moments, also filled with plan B's if plan A doesn't work for you and your puppy. You can't go wrong with this book. If you buy ONE book for your puppy - this should be it! (owner of many puppy/dog books)

This is the first book to earn the top shelf of my bookcase with the 'other' training bible by Kilcommons and Wilson, 'Good Owners, Great Dogs'! Everything I thought I knew about training dogs and teaching people has been lifted to a higher level of understanding. Sarah and Brian's writing style is warm and welcoming... This book is the perfect gift to give yourself and your new puppy or dog. I wouldn't raise another puppy without My Smart Puppy by my side!

If buying this book for your nook, it should be discounted since you are not able to utilize the dvd.

I bought this book before i bought my puppy from Alabama a couple yrs ago and it helped me sooooo much to get into the minds of a dog. My dog is so well behaved from me following this book. Do NOT train your puppy or even your rescue without this! You wont regret it!!

I got this for my son who got a new puppy. They live far away and I wanted to give him a "new puppy" gift with How-To advice that was clear and useful. He found it very informative and full of suggestions and advice from experts. I would gladly reccoment it to anyone with new puppy questions!!!!

My Smart Puppy is a comprehensive, easy to understand dog training book written not only for puppy owners but for dog lovers of all levels. It is well written, easy to understand, with tons of photographs. What I like above all else is the easy to follow organization of the book, which makes it an excellent reference book that belongs on every dog owner's book shelf. The companion DVD is a huge bonus, as you get to see the authors in action --- it is very nice to see that these authors do real hands on work with dogs, and their love for canines is so very evident in both the book and the DVD. Wholeheartedly recommended as the #1 gift for your favorite dog lover.

This book provides dog and puppy owners with the information and tools they need to teach their puppies how to be excellent household companions. My Smart Puppy is engaging and fun, and offers more information and practical, hands on advice than I have seen in any other dog training book. The problem solving sections that follow each training exercise are an invaluable tool. My Smart Puppy provides dog and puppy owners with the tools they need to train their puppy-and to have fun while doing it. The authors teach without ever talking down to the reader, and offer their training advice in an engaging, warm and friendly manner. I admit to owning all of the other books written by these authors, all of which are excellent. However, My Smart Puppy is by far the best and most useful training book (by any author) that I have ever read.

It should not be an ebook since you have to pay extra money for the DVD.

I got a lot out of this book. It was very informative and helpful! The only issue I have is that I bought it as an e-book & the wording on some of the pages was so messed up I couldn't figure out what the page was supposed to say.

The training suggestions are easy to implement. Treats are important training devices, but are not given for every behavior as some other trainers insist.

Honestly, this book is a GREAT buy! I cannot express how nessesary it is for new (or even experienced) dog trainers. It is also very easy to understand, and you'll have fun learning how brilliant your puppy is. Thank you Brian and Sarah! Also, I would buy the actual book instead mof the ebookso you can use the CD.

This is a simply outstanding book on how to train your dog without using fear or overhwelming force to ensure complaince. The training is designed to be fun for you and your dog. It is training you do WITH your dog and not to your dog. A huge difference from many of the other so called experts who litter this field. Brian and Sarah clearly show how their methods work on the DVD and equally clear is that the dogs love working with them. That is so important!!

I've been waiting for a common sense, dog and people friendly book to come out to help people train their dogs. As a dog trainer I know it is important for owners to continue training their dog after the initial lessons. This book gives excellent activities for owners to do with their dogs to continue training in a fun way and to build a lasting relationship with their dog. This book works well for puppies and adults. I've sent several of my training clients to B&N for a copy!
