    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!
