Publisher's Summary

Puppy academy! This audiobook will teach you how to raise a loving and healthy puppy. 

Remember that your puppy will one day be an adult dog and what you do from day one will influence the puppy and will determine what type of adult dog the puppy will become.

Training your puppy from day one will lead to many happy memories for you and your puppy.

In this guide you will learn the following:

  • Are you ready for a puppy?
  • What breed of dog will be the best fit for you?
  • Puppy proofing your home
  • Your puppy's first month  
  • Learn what to feed your puppy and when
  • Taking care of your puppy's hygiene 
  • Encouraging discipline in your puppy 
  • Socializing your puppy
  • Common behavioral problems to look out for
  • Understanding dog psychology and much, much more....

Many people make the mistake to spoil their puppies. When the dog is an adult they get angry and blame the dog for its bad behavior. The ironic thing is that the owners are responsible for their puppies and that most bad behavior can be avoided by learning a little bit about puppies and how to raise them in a good and proper way.

By raising your puppy the right way you will make sure that your puppy and your family have amazing memories together and a great future. Help your puppy now to have a happy life with you and your family.

Essential reading for all dog owners!

This book is brilliant!! Practical, knowledgeable & a very entertaining read. I laughed & cried & learnt loads. The information in this book can be applied to all dogs, not just puppies. It is an easy read with science to back up the various exercises described. All written in a very straightforward, interesting, common sense way. Can't recommend this book highly enough!

Great training book

This is a great book on sensible and 'common sense' empathetic methods for teaching dogs. More importantly, it's a great book for training humans to train dogs! Used alongside his you tube videos you'll find yourself in your dog's world learning what makes her tick and using this to to train yourself to control
