Raising a puppy successfully takes patience and dedication but the process can be made a whole lot easier by reading Sophia Yin's excellent book, Perfect Puppy in 7 Days. Packed with the latest information, Dr. Yin takes the reader into the puppy's world, helping them to not only understand a puppy's developmental process, but giving useful tips and techniques to ensure that any puppy becomes a happy, confident adult. This book is a must-have for any puppy parent or canine educator.
Victoria Stilwell, Dog Trainer, author and host of Animal Planet's It's Me or the Dog.

This book is a comprehensive and humane guide to puppy behavior and training, incorporating a detailed guide on how to interpret you puppy's body language. Worth buying for the socialization advice and checklist alone.
John Bradshaw, Ph.D., Director of the University of Bristol's Anthrozoology Institute, Author of Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You A Better Friend to Your Pet.

Well written, factually correct and brilliantly illustrated. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of getting a new puppy. Two paws up for a great contribution!
Dr. Nicholas Dodman, Board Certified Veterinary Behaviorist, Section Head and Program Director, Animal Behavior Department of Clinical Sciences, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University.

This well-organized book is filled with essential information about puppy development and learning. Experts and novices alike will appreciate the illustrations and analogies that turn science into a clear and enjoyable read. Most important, Dr. Yin offers a plan that incorporates critical socialization and training into a daily routine. It will be a puppy life-saver.

I am thrilled with the Perfect Puppy in 7 Days! As a professional dog trainer, I am always searching for reward-based resources for my clients, especially first time puppy owners. This book lays out, in detail, how to set your puppy up for success from Day 1 using common sense, gentle techniques, while establishing clear communication between puppy and person. I am recommending this book to all puppy owners!

A lot of important basics all in one place, March 21, 2015
Reviewer: EM
This would make a great gift for anyone about to bring a puppy into their life. This is the perfect book for first-time dog owners, or those who haven't had a dog in a long time. It explains all of the important basics in ONE approachable and clear book. I agree with the other reviewer that the tone about food is a little bit awkward, but the message definitely has good intentions. The more new puppy/dog owners that are encouraged to use their dog's food as a training opportunity, the better. I agree it could have been worded with the same tone as the rest of the book, which is extremely upbeat and encouraging. All in all, one of the best books out there if you are looking to recommend ONE book to a new dog owner!
 
A few concerns, April 13, 2012
Reviewer: Kate A
I have, for years, suggested Dr Yin as an excellent resource for clients. Most of this new book contains ideas and exercises I love and would be thrilled to have clients read practice. There are a few concerns I had about some of the tone - there is a comment in 5.1.1 about 'dumping food in a bowl is for people who are too lazy to spend quality time training and interacting with their pet.' There is something that feels a bit off about using guilt as a driving force for motiviating change in people when pormoting a positive reward-based training method for the dog. As for the layout - the book is GREAT. Love the pictures and very short sections of text - would be very user friendly for busy homes with new pups. I like so much I wanted to give more paws - however Dr Yin is experienced enough I feel less tolerant than I might otherwise regarding the issues of tone.
 
The Importance of Early Training, April 9, 2012
Reviewer: Lisbeth Plant KPACTP
Excellent, logical layout and plenty of illustrations make this book an easy read for the whole family, while preparing for Puppy's arrival. Sophia's Learn To Earn-program is a very good foundation for young puppies and their new owners and should be encouraged by breeders and trainers alike. Take a week off work and spend it training your new puppy, and you will have prevented so many problems down the line, like jumping up, chewing, barking, pulling on leash, etc! A great 'how to'-book for pet owners and professionals alike.
