    I actually bought this book because I wanted the free "Train Your Dog" dvd. I didn't think I needed another dog book since I have bought and read many dog books over the years. This book is wonderful surprise! The information is very up-to-date and thorough. I especially like the chapters on training and what to expect during the different stages of your dog's life.
    The DVD is really great! My 3-month old puppy already knows come, sit, down, and roll over. The trainers use the positive approach with lots of praise and rewards.

    I have "The Dachshund Handbook" by the same author and this books appears to be a reprinting of it. The info is great but if you already have the other book I would not purchase this one. I thought the two books would be different so I was disappointed.

    It was well worth waiting quite some time to finally get this book. Since I have older rescue dachshunds, this covers absolutely everything I need!

    I bought this book because I wanted some basic tips on how to train my Dachshund and also get some more info on the breed. The info on the breed I definitely got, but I feel the training tips were not the most helpful in the world even with the DVD. I say this because dachshunds are pretty stubborn dogs and aren't need to blindly follow as other dogs may be. I got this book super cheap used, but for full price I'm sure you can find similar info online. I say if you can get it cheap go for it, if not, it's not super extremely necessary.

    This is a really good breed book. Lots of information on temperament and health. Great reference for anyone who has or is thinking of getting a Dachshund.
