    Puppy Primer

    Posted by Gwen Tomlinson on 4th Jan 2019

    I buy this book to include in my puppy going home package. I find it to have the most important info for a new puppy owner. Described in a way that novice folks can understand & fun to read the way it is organized with highlighted key training “ truths “ for each chapter.
