A refreshing read even if it's not your first puppy
on 12 August 2012
I was given a timely copy of this book just before my puppy arrived home - my fourth in 20 years. Over that time how our relationships our dogs has changed - especially as regards puppy training books. It's 6 years since I last had a puppy and this was a great reminder of the 10 most important things I need to do with my new puppy in order for him to become the fantastic dog my 6 year old has become. I read it through once to get an idea of what 'Life Skills' were covered, and whenever I want to work on one of the skills, I go back to the book and see what it advises - it's particularly good at giving instructions on how to get started with each skill - especially loose lead walking! - with beautiful photographs giving a clear picture of what your puppy is feeling, so you know what his/her body language is telling you. I take it everywhere with me because you never know when an opportunity to train will present itself!
