Expanded Description:

Dr. McConnell added new information about the benefits of positive reinforcement AND the importance of realistic expectations. For instance, "sit" while waiting for the food bowl is NOT equivalent to "sit" when company comes to the door! While it’s almost twice the size of the original, the book is still easy to read, user-friendly and priced right for trainers and dog owners. It’s the perfect guide for positive-based training classes or for new dog owners flying solo!

Here’s what you can look forward to learning with your puppy:
How to make training fun for BOTH you and your puppy
How to teach basic cues including Sit, Down, Come, Heel, Stay
Simple steps for house and crate training
How to use positive reinforcement without spoiling your puppy
What to do when adolescence strikes!

Patricia B. McConnell, Ph.D., CAAB is an Ethologist and Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist who has consulted dog lovers for over twenty years. She is the author of ten books including The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs and For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend. Trisha lives on a farm near Madison, Wisconsin and two dogs, one cat and a flock of sheep.

Excellent resource, December 4, 2014
Reviewer: Nicoline Mann
I love this book! It is simple, easy to navigate and yet very thorough. As a dog trainer, I regularly access this books information for ways to explain behaviors that I need to teach to puppy owners. A great resource to include in your dog library!

Reviewer: A Jussero
There are several great puppy books out there but I was really impressed with this one. The set up of the book is very easy to follow, making it easy for a new puppy owner to follow through. Exercises are presented in a very common sense way. Even the price is a great way to get new owners to try it. I'll be using this from now on in teaching my Puppy K classes (and when I finally break down to get a new puppy myself). Good job for authors, and especially for the puppies themselves!
