There are so many helpful tips and tricks - in all of their books... and I'll leave you with the best one ever: Pooping on command!
I will never have to stand in the rain again waiting for my dog to go potty! I've taught all my dogs this immediately and I have this book to thank!
I just got my second puppy, so I thought I would get this book by the same folks on puppy-raising. We got to meet his litter and watch them playing (a good piece of advice from the book). We decided to take home the biggest pup, who was crawling all over the others even at 4 weeks old (we did not take him home when we first met him (there's more on that in the book!)). We knew he would be a handful, and he is (there was a lot of amazing insight on how to choose a puppy in--you guessed it--the book!).
We didn't follow everything to the letter, but pretty generally follow their advice. He's 8 months now and when I take him out in public people ask me if he is a 10-year-old service dog because he is so well-behaved (was asked this exact question thrice the last time I took him with me on the ferry. They always guess 10 years, too. Kinda weird, right?).
The most helpful information, I thought, was on developmental stages. The info on training is really great, but they also include a ton of info on your puppy's development so that you know how to use what training methods as they go through different phases. Even if you are someone with a lot of experience with dogs and dog training, it never hurts to read more; and these guys know what they're talking about.
