About the Author
Paul Allen Pearce is the author of many breed dog-training books. When his family duties allow, he spends his spare time outdoors with his two dogs Buck and Samson.
Paul’s family are dog lovers and often took in strays. Paul and his siblings were taught how to care and train the family pets and dogs. Both his parents grew up with many animals and had generational knowledge to pass forth to their offspring.
Being raised around all sorts of animals, his curiosity to work with animals grew. Upon returning back to the U.S. and purchasing his own dog he realized he didn’t know as much as he could, thus began his journey into owning and full time dog training.
Paul States - "Dog training is my passion. I love dogs, animals, and the wonders of nature. It is easy to write about your passion and share what you have learned and discovered.
I hope that my readers enjoy and learn from what I have learned and improve their dog relationships. My past explorations throughout twenty countries and states helped me to broaden my perspective regarding animal behavior and treatment. Let us all be kind to animals, not only dogs.
When I am not working, I spend my time outdoors with my dogs, exploring nature and expanding my knowledge of life, dogs and dog training."

Great book! And funny too. We started training our stubborn Basset hound pup at 8 weeks the basic commands (NEVER is too young to start asking for simple commands) and by time we decided to enroll in puppy classes at 3 months old, she has learned everything already because of the book! Pearce puts training in terms everyone can understand and makes reading enjoyable. It isn't just about bassets either - these training techniques can be used on ALL dogs - he just focuses on stubborn bassets a time or two. He also put potty and crate training into perspective for me which worked wonders! Out of the dog books I've bought so far, I'd throw the rest away and only buy this one if I had to do I to over again. Also need to note - this is my first puppy I've raised.
This book is barely basset hound specific. It's like the author mentioned the breed just barely enough to call it breed specific. The information in this book is extremely basic. After getting through all the grammar mistakes in this book, you will not have learned much. Please save your money for a different/better book.
This book sounds like it's breed specific, but it's not. It's a very cursory look into dog training. If you've ever successfully owned a dog before, you don't need this book. If you've never owned a dog before, you still don't this book. Horribly written, full of typos and basic grammar violations, lame puns, and stupid jokes that waste the reader's time. Right from page 1, paragraph 1 the typos and grammatical errors begin, and they certainly didn't end there. I couldn't even make it past page 26. It was actually painful to read. What I really wanted to do was "grade" the book, much like a High School English teacher grades some idiot teenager's research paper, and send it back to the author for careful consideration and revision. Seriously, this book is a Grammar Nazi's delight. Save yourself some time, money, and a waning lack of faith in humanity and don't buy this book.
