We bought this book because we are expecting our first child in a couple of months and wanted to know how to get our 1 yr old dog ready for the new arrival. The chapter on introducing your dog to the baby is very helpful, and they provide specific training activities to prepare your dog. I also found some of the general dog behavior explanations and advice to be very valuable, whether or not you have kids. I wish we had known about this book several months ago when our dog entered his "teenage" years.

This is a well written and informative book on the subject of bringing a new dog or puppy into a home with children. The information is well laid out in easy to reference chapters, and the pictures really illustrate what the "do"s and "don't"s look like. There is a helpful timetable for dog maturity so one can better understand where your puppy is in terms of emotional and physical maturity, and how that relates to kids. Whether your a patent with young children or a dog trainer/lover, there is much practical advice to absorb and use!

This was a good book to read with your children. It works well with any breed of dog in my opinion. It kept repeating the emphasis on playing nice with a new puppy, which hit home with my 6 and 3 year old. I wish it gave more information and tips on potty training though.

I refer to this book frequently to see various approaches to solutions for dog and puppy training issues. I recommend it to any dog/puppy training professional for his/her professional library. Applicable for dogs of any age, really, not just puppies.
