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.
Previously, with our 4 dogs, I was using the choke-chain method that was taught at our local dog club. I didn't like it and my dogs didn't like it. I was thrilled to find Pippa's web site and learn a new way of teaching.
I was grabbed this book up on pre-order and read it the same day I got it. Our dog also says, "THANKS."
