What wasn't addressed at all was bringing the puppy home to another dog. I know from experience that can make housebreaking much easier if you are bringing a male puppy home to a male dog but this is the first time I'm bringing home a puppy of the opposite sex.
I am sure that new puppy or dog owners will get a ton of useful information. I think it's a very good refresher book for people who have had a puppy before because it's usually (hopefully) many years between puppies.
The reason I deducted a star is because a multiple dog household wasn't' mentioned in the book at all.
I bought it to potty train my toy poodle inside, but the whole inside training it omitted, it just says to reference the full version. Total rip off.
Do not waste your time or money with this mini version. It just gives you vague insights.
