    As a student in canine behaviour I bought this book for an essay about the puppy stages of development. I found it useful for this and for the most of the book it seems to be a good starter for bringing up a puppy. However, the part that disturbed me somewhat was the old fashioned advice to 'scruff shake' a puppy for discipline!!! Such harsh treatment of a puppy could prove irreversibly traumatic and is a confusing and potentially dangerous approach with an adult dog! I'm surprised that they haven't altered this section with new editions. For truly caring owners, I'd recommend doing some research and getting onto the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) website for reputable authors such as Gwen Bailey and David Appleby. ...Good luck!

    Great book full of thorough & practical information about raising your new puppy. From choosing your breeder & new puppy, house breaking, mouthing, barking, jumping up, socializing, obedience exercises, explaining how to reinforce yourself as the dominant one in the relationship. It is written in a concise easy to reference format. A must have book to shape your puppy into a beloved family member & canine good citizen.
