Love this book - and my puppy loves "going to school!" Good explanations and photographs, with excellent results. My puppy picked up the tricks very quickly. "Spin" is his favorite!

This book is a watered down version of the author's other book titled "101 Dog Tricks." Buy that one instead. It includes all of these tricks plus many more!!!

51 Puppy tricks is a very good book. It goes through very simple motions for training your puppy some really cool, but simple, tricks! It is chock full of colorful pictures and step-by-step instructions on how to train your puppy. It shows where and when to use the clicker, hand signals to use, and what word commands to use.
I would suggest this book for anyone who has a puppy that they want to start training. This is a great way to bond with your puppy and give him a head start. It is simple tricks, taught in simple ways for your puppy to be able to understand better. It is laid out in such a simple way that even a child could train their puppy.
However, if you have an older dog, I would suggest 101 dog tricks for him. 101 Dog Tricks is more advanced training for a dog, not a puppy. It is a very good book as well. I would recommend them both if you really want to start training from puppy-hood to adult dog-hood. Both are very easy for the trainer to understand and read. I have personally enjoyed them, as well as my sister who is a more advanced dog trainer. 51 Puppy tricks has a lot of great tips in it on training puppies for the experienced and in-experienced trainer alike!
51 puppy tricks is specifically for puppy training. I would recommend it to starters and advanced people alike! It is a great way to start your puppy out right in a really fun way!

I'm so glad I bought this book. It may well be a section of a previous book, as another reviewer complains, but this is an advantage rather than a drawback, as if you are training a puppy you can work your way through all of these tricks in sequence, with a goal of finishing the book in sight. If you're training a puppy, you don't want difficult tricks meant for adult dogs cluttering up your schedule and making you feel overwhelmed. Also, the detail this book goes into for each trick, with step by step photos means the author has more space to be detailed and specific - a big bonus for first time puppy trainers.

I will buy the book for older dogs when my dog is an adult, but for now this book is perfect. I have a set amount of tricks, a plan to build on them each day and an end in sight. A brilliant book.

I bought this book for myself when we got our new puppy in August 2010. I've loved it and my puppy loves learning the tricks :) We have a couple of Kyra Sundance's other books as well, but this one is great for puppies. Some of the tricks are "beginner level" tricks, such as teaching them to walk across a board but not actually doing a teeter-totter since puppies shouldn't be doing a full teeter-totter yet. I liked it so much I bought a copy for my 12 year old cousin when she got a new puppy too. You will need a clicker and small, soft treats for training.

Wonderful! Not just for pups, but for all your doggys! Great, easy to follow step by step instructions WITH step by step color PHOTOS to show you each task and/or trick taught in this book. A very very low price for all you get. I will use it even teach my service dog some useful tasks that I need help with. Oh... and a few to impress the friends! Kids and adults could use this book to work with their doggys. Great for clicker training, giving hand signals... they've included it all in this book. I am soooooo glad I got this helpful book!

I purchased this book first, Kindle version, and was quite happy, till I went to a local book store, and checked the 101 Tricks version ... I wish I had a way to return/refund Kindle books ... :(

A lot of what this book covers is more what I would call basic obedience, but there are some fun tricks. Where this book shines if with the full color pictures breaking down how to teach the tricks. It's not a substitue for a class with a trainer, but I like to use it as a reference for a different approach when what I'm doing isn't working for my puppy.
