As a first time puppy owner I was at a loss in every area, I reviewed many books and chose this one with my fingers crossed, I was not wrong and I go to this book everytime I have a question that needs an answer. I am thrilled with the all the puppy has learned and much has been in the book. I recommend the book for all new puppy parents.

I loved this book.It helped a lot.It talked about all

different kinds of things.Like what to do if your dog

or puppy barks at everything.How to clean a puppy's ears

and why.How to stop them from biting.How to recognize

your pup's personality.Ssomething I learned is that

there are different ways a pup can act like.Some

pups are eager Beavers.That means that they will

do anything to make you happy.That can be a good

thing and a Bad thing. If you like to toss the ball, your

pup will bring it back 500 times!I don't want to say

anymore.Buy this book it's great!

This is a valuable tool for raising a pup. It is concise and written in laymen's terms so it's very easy to understand. It's straight forward and to the point. You don't have to weed through a ton of useless information. I'd highly recommend this book for anyone wanting great meaningful tips and techniques on puppy raising. It's made a world of difference for me.

This book was helpful to bring things to my attention and make me look at common puppy issues in a different light. VERY quick read because at least 50% of the book is the diary section. Can't wait to bring home our little pal and put this book to use!!

This is a good book for those who are getting their first puppy.The first 1/3 of the book is alot of basic knowledge to get started and makes alot of sense. Explanatory is simple and to the point. I'm happy with the book. The rest of the book is a diary to jot down your training experiences as well as keeping track of office visits. I can do away with that part as I have a separate book for keeping track of his health and vet visits. I would recommend the puppy raising section as it is good knowledge to learn but the rest....I can do without.

When I brought my puppy home I immediately made every mistake possible. So I found Puppies for Dummies on Amazon, which others had highly recommended, and it really has gotten me through a challenging time...housebreaking, chewing, you name it! The author is very straightforward and her strong recommendations come from years of knowledge about what works and doesn't work with puppies. And guess what? Puppies DO learn and do behave IF you follow her recommendations. Dealing with a new puppy won't be easy no matter what, but read this book or it will just be that much more difficult and take that much longer.
