Publisher's Summary

For years dog trainer Michael Wombacher has worked with expecting dog owners to prevent problems between dogs and children. He has also unfortunately witnessed too many families forced to surrender their beloved family companions because they failed to prepare the dog for the arrival of a new family member.

In Good Dog, Happy Baby, Wombacher lays out a 12-step process that will give families the skills they need to navigate this new era of their lives. These skills include how to evaluate dogs, resolve common behavior problems, and fully prepare dogs for a new baby.

This easy-to-use guide, filled with simple instructions, makes a great gift for any expecting family with a dog, whether the dog is perfectly trained or in serious need of behavioral help.

Good information, poor execution.

This book provides loads of useful information on how to properly train and educate a dog, but the methods used to accomplish the training are questionable. I agree with the author that positive only training may not be sufficient, but the book seems a little eager to work with painful and frightening techniques.

I felt the narration was a little on the boring side as well, almost like listening to one of those computer generated voices. Clear, volume a little low.
