Publisher's Summary

You've got the sleepy puppy in the backseat, the fur-lined doggy bed that will look really cute in the corner of your home and a bag of chew-toy hamburgers ready to go. You get your new pup home and what happens?

Well not much; likely a lot of sleeping and pooping and chewing and whining. Loving your new canine friend is easy, but living with them can be difficult if you don't know what you are doing. This is where this puppy training book comes in to help stop your pooch destroying your home and to turn them into a beloved companion for years to come.

Puppy training or turning your hand to being a dog trainer doesn't have to involve the use of zap-collars, expensive obedience training classes, and doggy shaman rituals. With the right techniques, some serious training, and just enough puppy love you can have a dog that is well-trained and well-behaved.

This is a book that believes training a puppy isn't just about holding some kibble over a dog's head and yelling "sit", but is actually understanding your dog and why he acts the way he does. Don't expect a puppy to understand why you don't want him to chew on the furniture, instead understand why he wants to chew and make sure he does it in a furniture-friendly way.

You will learn about the ways dogs have been bred to live and work with humans over millennia, and how you can read a dog's body language to tell if he is happy, sad, or being dominant. You will be given guidance on how puppies develop as they age and how to account for different temperaments and personalities.

Discover the different stages of puppy training from the initial housebreaking and nightly moaning stage, to early behavioral training, and then into obedience training so you will be sure to have a puppy that can be your friend while staying safe and causing you fewer headaches.

    "Very informative"

    It is important to train our puppies how to behave inside and outside our homes to avoid unpleasing situations. As dog owners, we must also be responsible enough to take care of our dogs and teach them to be loving, friendly and helpful and not to harm or hurt anybody except of course when needed but I believe, it's a dog's instinct to save their owners from any dangerous or harmful circumstances.

    "Great book"

    This book is helpful! We are getting a puppy in a few weeks and I got this book as a guide to help potty train him. There are many tips listed inside on how to potty train your puppy. Everything is very organized and straight to the point. I am so happy we got this book to help us! I can't wait to get him here and start training him right away.

    "Perfect Guide"

    It is a perfect guide for those who want to train their puppies personally. Well, we do know that there are good and bad habits with our cute pets. We should know this and start a plan on how to eliminate those bad ones. Also, we will learn the do's and don’ts while training them. The instructions in this book were well explained. The training they will be much more fun and exciting. Find out more tips and techniques this book has.

    "Well researched"

    After listening this book, first day my pup actually went to the back door to go outside. Book was short, concise and to the point and should be quickly read before you pick up your puppy.I highly recommend you read this book if you have a puppy and you are trying to housebreak him/her. This is a well researched book!
