When you first bring a new dog or puppy into your family, it takes a lot of planning and management to set up for success. As your puppy matures or your new dog becomes part of your family, less and less management is required. Good management means: Plan Ahead for Success!! In other words, you set up your dog to be right! Use positive reinforcement to shape and reward behavior. Booklet is not meant to address serious behavior problems that your dog may already have. A terrific handout for household/pet obedience or puppy classes!
