An unbelievable amount of information all in one place.

From the very basics to more detailed problem solving, every dog person can benefit from this book... from the first time puppy owner to rescue volunteers and even pet professionals. Well organized with a very detailed table of contents that makes future reference a snap.

When I saw the title that included House Training Puppies & ADULT Dogs too, I figured I'd make a last-ditch effort to get my two year old dog to finally stop having accidents. I didn't know what I was doing wrong... I was following a food and water schedule, walking him plenty, and still there were accidents on a regular basis.

Now that I've read this book and followed the methods, my dog has completely stopped having housebreaking accidents! The main thing that was helpful was reading all of the "troubleshooting" tips, which helped me figure out what my dog's confusion was and how to train him.

If your dog or puppy is having housebreaking accidents, I highly recommend this book!

Before I got this book, I felt like my puppy had no idea what to do. I'd walk him for half an hour and he'd have an accident as soon as we came inside. Sometimes he was even having accidents in the crate!

Once I read this book, I understood much better how my dog thinks and things starting going much better immediately. I now know what schedule to follow, how to do crate training properly, how to prevent accidents and what to do about them when they do happen.

Housebreaking is a bit of a project for anyone who has a dog, but with this book I feel confident that housebreaking will be overwith much faster and with less damage to my home. The front cover says "30 days or less to a trustworthy pet", and I'll bet that's true because my dog is doing much better with housebreaking already and it's only been 3 days!

Also, in the editorial review it says that the chapters are organized nicely for quick and easy future reference, and that's turned out to be helpful too. I'm able to open right up to the section I'm looking for in case I want to go over anything again.

Great book!

I work with a rescue group and we recommend this book to EVERY person who adopts a dog, whether or not that dog is housetrained already. The book has tips and info that can be used for puppies and adult dogs, as well as dogs that are already housetrained, but maybe you want to train them to potty in a specific area. This book is a MUST READ for all new dog owners, especially those with puppies.

I bought this book weeks in advance of getting my new puppy so I would be prepared to train her correctly. This was the best one out of all the training books I bought.

It helps you understand the way a dog thinks. Coming from that approach, it is much easier to get your dog to understand what you want from him/her. This book taught me many things I did not know and it showed me the things I had done incorrectly with past dogs.

I used to think crating dogs was cruel. But it has shown me that just like a baby who is kept in a playpen to be safe from harmful things in the room, a crate is a puppy's safe area -- a den -- enjoyed by them. And crate training I now know is the biggest aid in housebreaking a dog. I'm so glad I got educated on this!

I read it through twice, then bought a copy for my mom who is also getting a pup from the same litter I am. With the help of this book, we are both going to have well trained dogs!

This book was very helpful. It provided insight on how dogs thing and interact with their environment and gives a very clear and consise way to housebreak your dogs. As someone with older puppies/adults, its nice to have a book that isn't entirely geared toward young puppies. In addition, it offers solutions to many potential problems and has a very helpful FAQ section.

Not only does Lori Verni's great and easy-to-use book focus on every detail of house training, it is also an ABC guide to understanding and training your dog in general. It's like a dog-training bible. My copy is totally "dog-eared" (pun intended) already from using it so much!
