This is a great book about how to begin training your dog whether he or she is a new puppy or an older dog you've adopted. I found it very informative with some great tips. Daniela Emerson covers everything one needs to know beginning with potty training.
She covers socializing your dog both inside AND outside the home. This is important because just as biting, when a dog jumps on someone they could unintentionally hurt them. Socializing is another topic she discusses as well as two different methods of training. Command training or clicker training. Next is collar and leash training concluding with training older dogs.
Patience and consistency are the two most important things a person needs tohave when teaching their dog. This will make for an overall better companion and the payoff is priceless.
Kelly Dievendorf did a fine job narrating this audiobook. She gave straight talk and moved right through the book. I would recommend this if you're planning to adopt a new puppy or an older dog.
Audiobook received in exchange for an honest review.

Any additional comments?
This is a good little audiobook to listen to in preperation for getting a new puppy or before you get a new dog.
There are lots of tips about what to look into and reserch, acording to which type of dog/puppy you are getting.Explaining several differnt options and forms of training.
This is not a book that goes in depth into training problems or long explanations of what to do . So if you already have an older puppy/ dog and are encountering problems, then this is proberly not the book for you.
good narration by Kelly Dievendorf.
I recieved this audiobook version free, in return for an unbiased review.
Here is a good primer for taking on a puppy or an older dog. If you’ve never taken a dog obedience class or read other dog training books, then this is a good place to start. It covers all the basics without getting bogged down in example stories or trying to delve into doggy psychology.
I am one of those life-long pet owners that has never taken a pet obedience course. Instead, I have found nuggets of useful information along in the way in books like this one. For this particular book, I like how the author distinguishes the different set of challenges an owner may have taking on a puppy versus an older dog. Since I have done both, I can attest that the challenges are indeed quite different. There are also bonuses to each, which the book explains as well.
I was quite pleased to see that the book drew on consistency and patience as key in training a dog. The author also doesn’t pull any punches letting a potential dog owner know when they probably aren’t ready for a pet. We’ve all known adults who were not in a place (emotionally, mentally, physically) to properly care for a pet and some of us have probably been there. So kudos for the author for not shying away from saying it. If you are looking for a dog training book for kids or for adults new to the idea of pet ownership, this is a great place to start.
The Narration: Kelly Dievendorf was a good voice for this book. She had a clear voice that you could easily imagine belonging to an experienced pet trainer.
