I purchased the Kindle version because it was cheaper, but I'm thinking of adding the paperback as well because I prefer to have reference books in print. When I purchased the Kindle version I didn't realize how often I'd be returning to the book.
If you want a well-rounded approach to caring for your dog or puppy, you need this book!
I'm not bringing home a Labrador puppy, but when I read the line "For weeks or months you have thought about and prepared for this wonderful occasion" I thought "YES! This book is for me." This is a great read for the planner-type who makes lists, plans ahead, bought their dog's crate and collar months before they were born (yes, I'm guilty) and wants to do the best possible job for their puppy. I'm eight weeks out from being able to bring home my puppy, and it was the perfect timing to read this book.
I had dogs growing up, but always rescue pups and have never brought home an 8 week old puppy. This resource has been wonderful and my confidence is growing with every chapter. There is a little additional information/caution that I think is breed specific, regarding stairs and hip dysplasia, but even though this isn't a primary concern for my chosen breed (Dalmatian) I appreciated the advice, because better safe than sorry.
I hope my Dal is as happy and well-adjusted as Pippa's Labradors must be, and with the advice in this book I feel like we're already halfway there.
I do wish it gave the names of all vaccinations needed and when they were due. It mentions them but vaguely.
Therefore, this book is done very well for me to train a puppy to be very well behaved. The biggest thing I learned was socialization and how important this process really is. Easy training methods as well that comes naturally to the dog.

- Beautifully written
- Logical layout
- Easy to follow
- Makes perfect sense
- Pippa should consider writing a handbook for rearing children and or husbands 😂
It was pre-used and heavily highlighted, but interestingly, all the highlighted bits were the bits we needed to come back to for correcting our puppy's bad habits.
This book gave us confidence with our puppy and has made life so much easier.
I should have bought this book before getting our puppy as the preparation is excellent. Fortunately I was given good advice and sounds as if the advice had come from this book.
I will keep going back to this book daily as I too need practise to make the good habits stick and put in corrective actions when needed. I feel more confident as a new puppy owner. Additionally I take advice from her vet and information specific for the breed and bring it all together.
I'd recommend this book to anyone getting or thinking of getting a puppy. I only bought it a while after our puppy arrived, and I really wish I'd read it earlier.
Its easy to go back to specific topics of advice. Best training book I’ve read and has definitely sets both you and your pup up for a very happy and rewarding life together.
It’s very clearly written and easy to understand. It combines telling you what to do as well as why - it’s important to understand the psychology behind dealing with your pup. I can already tell that this is going to be an invaluable source of information.
