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.

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!

    We recently adopted 2 cattle dog mixes and were in over our heads because of their high energy! This book has been a lifesaver for first time dog owners and the illustrations are super helpful. 5 stars!

    Helpful Guide to Puppies!

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Aug 2020

    This is a nice, short and sweet guide to training a new puppy. This book has a ton of pictures that help me follow the lessons being taught. The 'learn to earn' program has been a good guide to teaching our puppy good manners. It could be improved with better navigational tools, like page numbers and an index, it can be hard to find a single lesson that I want to return to when I don't remember exactly where something was. Otherwise, I recommend this.

    Awesome Puppy Book - Especially for Breeders!

    Posted by Deb Walker on 22nd Oct 2018

    I love this book! It not only give easy exercises & games for new puppy owners to work/play on the most important issues with a new puppy . . . it also provides invaluqable information for the types of socialization a puppy should have while still at the breeder with its mom & littermates. This is invaluable for breeders as it addresses an often missed part of breeding puppies - the early behavioral education! I recommend this to all breeders and new puppy owners. Deb
