    "Wonderful book if you are getting a new puppy!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Raise the Perfect Dog to be better than the print version?

    I love to be able to listen in the car on the way to work.


    What does John H. Mayer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a very good job! Loved the voices he used talking from the dog's perspective.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this book four times, and each time I learn something new!

    "Great listen!!"

    Such a great amount of information, really helps thinking like a Momma dog, vs the emotions ee have and impart on our animals, that they don't really feel. Our 4.5 month old Daisy, golden retriever is responding so well to the techniques I've used that I've learned in this book. She c is, so much smarter than I ever gave her credit for as a puppy.

    "A great primer on dog psychology"

    This is the world's "go to" for understanding dog psychology. This is a must-read for any dog owner. It is NOT a training book. It is rather a manual to how your dog's brain and psychology work - which will set you up for success in training.

    I would definitely recommend this to everyone that wants to raise a dog.

    "Come on... It's cesar milan "

    Would've been better if I got the one cesar narrated but John Mayer did pretty good. No matter who reads it out loud it's good information

    "OK"

    I believe Cesar Milan is a great dog trainer. Even though his show is heavily edited to show 'quick' results, his methods are solid. I was hoping for more from this book but was somewhat disappointed. Not all of us have a well-trained dog in our pack to help with raising a new pup/dog.

    Not narrated by him and I would have preferred that.

    "Enjoyable and informative"

    Cesar covers all the needed new puppy information in a more interesting format than some of the other puppy care books. He adopted four puppies with a variety of needs and backgrounds. As he tells about the individual dogs you learn the right way through each phase of puppy care. I found it easy and entertaining listening, rather than lists and dry information.

    "Low reader"

    I did like the book, however the reader was a little slow for my tastes. (I speed him up)
