I have included this book in my training package. Everyone can understand it, it is very affordable, the lay out is great. My clients as first time owners or even if they've had multiple dogs can go through the chapters during the week and I show them how to go through the homework. It is a great workbook for puppies starting the first day at their new home or any age dog. The basics taught in a positive way with good explanation of dog needs and behavior.
