You'd think it would be hard to simplify a concept as complex as training a dog, but this book definitely makes it easy for people like me to understand just what goes into caring for a dog of any age. It's easy to read, and the pages turn quite naturally as you follow it and the dog gets older. It explains the concepts so simply that anyone can understand it.
The writing style is very friendly, and it talks to you like you're a friend in need of help. The book explains things patiently, giving detailed answers on just "why" you need to do what you're doing to train the dog. Whether it's how to make the puppy sleep in their own bed, house-training it, or getting the dog used to a leash, the book is an easy read.
I like the fact that the book takes a very positive approach towards dog training and behavior. Some of the books I read were written in a tone that made it sound like the author was exasperated or frustrated at their dog for peeing on the carpet for the 15th time, but this book had a very positive tone about how to deal with the different quirks and bad habits of each dog. With a positive tone like this, the author must have some well-trained dogs at home.
Probably what made me read this book was the fact that it deals with all of the big problems dog owners face - separation anxiety, obedience, playing with children, and so on - in a way that's simple to understand. After reading complicated articles on websites like Cesar's Way, this book was a breath of fresh air! There was none of this complicated lingo and "dog psychology" talk in the book, but it just explained to me how simple it was to deal with these things.
I loved the artwork in the book - it totally made it an enjoyable read! I'm a very visual person, so books with no illustrations are dry and boring. The cute little colored drawings and illustrations in the book made it easier to read, and actually added a bit of humor into the book. The layout of the book also made it an easy read, as there were no large chunks of text - just clearly visible headings and small paragraphs that are easy to digest.
I'd have to give it a five-star rating just because it made my life so much easier, and it's a short book worth reading!
It seems that everyone in my circle of friends thinks they know a thing or two about training a dog, but all that information can get overwhelming. I find that the more friends and family I ask for advice from, the more confused I get about what's best--too much conflicting information and not enough well-behaved dogs to prove them right. That's why it was so nice to read Chris Laursen's book and find all the important information gathered into one easy guide. I didn't have to try to make my own plan--that probably wouldn't have worked out too well for me--but instead I got a plan all laid out in a week-by-week progression.
The best thing about this book is probably how simple and information-packed it is. It gives you what you need to know, and doesn't go off on a lot of detours. I love to know what I should do, but I hate to have to wade through dog anecdote after dog anecdote to get to it. This book has none of that, and merely provides you with the author's researched guide on what he's found to work best.
It has art too, which is always a plus for me. I love pictures, and I'm sure if you're looking to give this book to your kids, they will too.
Overall, this book is worth the price. Five stars for easy reading, five stars for great content, five stars for research, and five stars for PICTURES! Love it.
I like the how she teaches on instincts and how dogs act in the wild and then applies that to training techniques that a puppy will naturally recognize. This makes interaction with puppy natural and spontaneous for both of you.
The book is separated into sections that address week one, week two, week three, week four, one to three months, three to six months and six months and beyond. This is most helpful because puppy's needs and ability to learn is different for each phase. The subtitles help you find what you are looking for with ease.
The book addresses many subjects such as preparing your home before you get your puppy, vaccinations, toilet training, ways to keep your puppy occupied and feeling safe as well as learning tricks, and much more. It is complete, comprehensive and easy to remember.
Puppy Training for Kids and Newbies is written in a fun and easy to grasp style that is easy to read while revealing much usable knowledge. The descriptive pictures are cute and add to the personality of the book.
There are many things of interest in the book. One that I like to remember was about the problem of too much barking. It mentioned that if you yell at puppy for barking she may take that as you are barking back at her. This will encourage her to keep barking. The book then explains how to solve the problem of too much barking.
For puppy training the book describes the methods in a clear way that is easy to picture and the "feel" of how you do it is conveyed. The book takes you from practical training of what is needed for puppy to live in a home to learning fun tricks. Since she has been trained to do the practical, necessary things, it is easy for her to advance into tricks later when she is ready. Training creates a bond between you and puppy as well as being useful and necessary.
To raise a healthy happy puppy into a healthy happy dog, this book is key. You can accomplish this without stress or feelings of not being in control of your dog.
After reading this book you will be confident and ready to enjoy the companionship of your new puppy. You will be the leader always, the puppy in tow!
