Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wonderful book for very successful, fast, yet actually fun housebreaking and amazing command training. Perfect for establishing the proper relationship so a puppy is ABLE to learn, and he will! Great job!" - AllBoxerInfo.com

"Detailed, Knowledgeable. Highly recommended. The flow of this book is excellent. Puppy and dog owners will see their dog in a whole new light, understanding how a puppy views his world...This makes all the difference and "I did it!" will be the result. Excellent for older dogs too" -Vega Navarro, Head Writer of PetPom.com 

About the Author

Faye Dunningham was born, raised and still currently resides in New England. Ms. Dunningham devotes her life to helping dogs and their humans create a bond and hold a relationship that allows a person to enjoy the true benefits of having a canine family member. Her belief that dogs are genuine members of a family powers her writings, her work and her devotion. Deciding to transfer her knowledge into book form, her goal is to offer a detailed understanding of how dogs perceive their world and couple this with clear training instructions so that all possible issues are covered within each book's topic. For over 15 years, she has upheld a steadfast devotion to volunteering with New England's local animal shelters, often working with dogs that are deemed "questionable" for rehoming. With superior training methods and a lot of love, her efforts are directly responsible for helping place 176 puppies and dogs, of both pure and mixed breeds with caring families. Ms. Dunningham also enjoys holding free classes to teach new owners how to provide a happy, healthy home. Faye greatly thanks her canine family members Jasmine, Hunter and Cooper for being her greatest supporters and her for giving back all of the love that she sends out.

More About the Author

Faye Dunningham was born, raised and lives in coastal New England. She has devoted much of her life to the wonderful canines that we share this world with.

Her interest in puppies and dogs began at an early age, spending summers as an assistant and handler for her aunt, a dedicated breeder who was also involved in the show world. This offered her a truly wonderful opportunity to learn about a wide variety of dog breeds. The gentle guidance received at a young age paved the roads that Faye Dunningham walks upon today.

This also offered her the opportunity to meet many other canine enthusiasts, trainers, breeders and handlers. Years of making notes, studying and always taking in all that she experienced is what has led to her strong devotion that comes across in all of her current work with canines.

Faye devotes a good portion of her days as a volunteer with many of the local animal shelters that span across New England. Most of her work involves pairing up with dogs that need training before they would be a good fit for a new family. This involves behavioral training, housebreaking and command training. She also holds classes for new owners so that they have the tools and knowledge to provide the best possible environment and atmosphere for the health and happiness of the new canine family members.

Her motto is that "ANY dog, no matter breed or age can be trained. This takes love and proper training methods...which anyone can provide if they take the time to learn and then apply the methods"

Ms. Dunningham has also worked with several NE organizations which brings dogs to visit seniors who are in need of companionship. She finds it beneficial beyond words.

Her books: The Well Trained Puppy: Housebreaking, Commands to Shape Behavior and All Training Needed for a Happy, Obedient Dog

The Well Socialized Dog: Step-by-Step Socialization Training for Puppies and Dogs

and Chewing, Tugging, Nipping and Biting: Detailed Step-by-Step Training for Puppies and Dogs...Are just the beginning, as Faye's goal is to bring all of her knowledge and experiences to loving puppy and dog owners.

Faye offered great insight with her Alpha dog description, and within two days of following her advice on walking, we are already making great progress ~something no other "advice" had accomplished.

I got a Black Labrador Retriever puppy for Christmas and he established himself as the Alpha Dog on the second day. He is teething and a feisty little fellow constantly biting and nipping at me and my children. I know this behavior can be corrected with proper training and discipline but after reading three books and trying the recommendations we had no success.

I came across this book and it is EXCELLENT!! I tried the establishing your role a as leader section and it has worked like a charm. My puppy is making great progress and no longer nips at me or the children. I am now in control and the puppy respects me. The layout of the book has good flow but most importantly the content is unlike anything out there. The content really works if you execute it as the book suggests. This is the best book bargain and best information for training puppies that I have come across. The Commands section is very thorough and also helps shape good dog behavior. Don't waste your money on any other books like I did. This is the only book you need! MANY THANKS to the author for sharing her dog training tips with us and writing this magnificent book!!!

I purchased this book after getting a new Golden Retriever puppy. I referred to it many times while I was teaching him the basics of being a well trained puppy.

Hadn't had a puppy in 20 years. The book reminded me of where she was coming from. Didn't feel so frustrated after reading it.

Easy quick read with good information. Reinforced other information that I already knew. Each chapter seems to stand independently with good repetition of basic information so no need to read entire book if interested in only one particular issue.

I bought this book on my Kindle, and I wasn't able to stop reading it. From page one the author explanes the thinking proccess of your dog and every page seems to expand on that. I learned many things about Canine body language that I had seen on my own but, never really understood. I recommend this book to anyone who isn't really sure about purchasing it, BUY IT! This is the book you are looking for!
