This book offers tons of practical advice. It has step by step photos with captions that describe exactly how to train your dog. It is entertaining and useful, cleverly written so it can be enjoyed by the whole family, adults and children alike. We followed the instruction outlined in the book and by the time our dog got to training school she was the star of the class.

I second all the other 5 star reviews! "Ian Dunbar's books are the best in positive dog training available." Simple, straighforward, easy to read and easy to follow instructions. No new dog owner should be without this and his Before and After You Get Your Puppy" books! I've followed his methods and took some classes at Sirius Dog Training, which teach his methods, and couldn't be happier with my two happy dogs! They are a delight to live with.

Don't hesitate for a second before buying this and his other books. If more dog owners tried his methods, which are so humane, the dog populations at shelters would plummet! So many dogs are sent to shelters because the owners don't understand that dogs don't understand from birth what we expect of them - they have to be taught!!! The best way to teach is to understand the animal's nature and why it behaves as it does, which leads to understanding how to teach it what you want. People who tell you their dog is just stubborn or who tell you that you have to dominate the dog and show it who's boss are showing their ignorance about dogs and training. Give them this book!

All I can say is that this book should go home with all new dog/puppy owners! It really is a must have, it's exactly what Dr. Dunbar say's "Efficient, Effective, Easy, Efficacious, Enjoyable, and Expedient". It's easy for kids to use too.

Dr. Ian Dunbar is a Veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and dog trainer who has been treating and training dogs for more than 40 years. If you're looking for an easy to follow training manual, Doctor Dunbar's Good Little Dog Book is a great book to follow. Dr. Dunbar's lure/reward methods are totally positive and upbeat. There is no jerking, kicking or scolding in Dunbar's philosophy. Just good, practial advice that works. It's easy to read, easy to follow, and you'll love the results.

This book is aimed at the person who is bringing a puppy home, not raising a litter for adoption. I bought the book because I am most interested in the proper socialization of these puppies, to make sure they turn out to be great dogs. Many have heard Dr. Dunbar's recommendation that your puppy meet 100 people by the time they are 16 weeks old. This is why I got the book - to get more detail on that recommendation. Sadly, there wasn't much more than that. They are sections on training too. I guess when the book was first written, this was cutting edge knowledge - not so much now. Still good information, however.
