Thankfully I was wrong! Puppy Development is an incredibly useful book about puppy raising and socialization. It is written in a concise, easy-to-read format and is actually a collection of smaller articles written by various authors.
Grrreat things about this book:
· Entire chapter (about 25 pages) detailing the different emotional/social "periods" of puppy development, from pre-whelping to mature adult. This is such important information, every breeder/puppy raiser/foster mom should be familiar with this chapter! It was VERY helpful!
· Special information on "clicker litters" and how to get the most out of your litters by using a clicker
· An article on socialization and special needs of "singleton" (one-puppy) litters... very important for those of us whose breeds have small litters normally
· Advice on losing puppies, fading puppies, and when to let go
This book includes well-known articles such as "The Rule of 7's" by Pat Schaap and "Mental Conditioning" by Becca Weber... must reads for any breeder!
Another thing really useful about this book is the "Tips/Tricks" sections, both for breeders and for new puppy owners. There is also a one-page checklist of what you should put in your puppy packet to send home with pups.
There is a lot of practical "stuff" covered in this little gem (knowing the breed you choose, nutrition, vet care) along with information for the experienced breeder on show-dog socialization and making agility puppies.
It is easy to read, easy to use as a reference, and every breeder or puppy raiser should own a copy! I absolutely loved this book!
