From the Back Cover
Here is the perfect book for puppy owners and would-be puppy owners who want to know how to bring their puppy up to be a happy, well-behaved, friendly adult dog. Antisocial behavior in dogs is often (rightly) blamed on owners. But most dog owners are neither irresponsible or uncaring. They simply don't have the knowledge they need to raise and train a dog properly. This book provides that knowledge.
The Perfect Puppy gives you the latest behavioral information and emphasizes prevention rather than cure. Follow Gwen Bailey's easy-to-understand advice and you should have no trouble with such problems as chewing shoes, pulling on the lead, or aggression when your dog is fully grown.
Full-color photographs show you how to housebreak your puppy and how to teach it to obey and generally be a good canine citizen.

The book gives you simple training ideas (such as using a pen in combination with a create). It also helps you get inside the head of your puppy (Alfa role's etc.). Understanding your puppy's reasons for their behavior makes training fun (as I'm sure you know by now).
I'm giving this book a five star rating due to its simplicity and the results I received. I would recommend to anyone with a puppy or planing on a puppy to also buy more than one book and watch animal planet for other helpful tips (I also found the videos by Matthew Margolis informative and entertaining).
