    This book is invaluable, it is packed full of relivant information and advice and is superbly written and easy to understand.If you follow the training advice in this book, you will get your puppy off to a great start and are much less likley to have any problems when your puppy grows into an adult dog.Another great thing about this book is that it is written with only kind training methods and modern canine psychology. No pack leadership drivel or choke chains.If you want to understand and live in peace with your puppy, get this book now!A dog lover from Berkshire

    We breed hovawarts and our prospective puppy owners often ask me which book I recommend to help them getting things right from the start with their puppies. This is always the one I tell them about. It is short and clear and cover the essential, not only to prevent puppy problems, but also to get a great relationship with your puppy and to teach basic commands in a positive and rewarding way.It has been written for adults, but because the style is easy to understand, parents can read sections with their children so they can also learn to interact with the puppy in the right way.A definite 5 stars for me!

    This book is not only insanely useful, it's also insanely small. Whatever the author's secret is to compact so much of the good stuff in so little space, I want in. She covers all the crucial areas in a breezy, uncomplicated style that hits the spot again and again.Given the date of edition (2002), many authors were still obsessed by punishment-based methods and the pack theory. Not so Dee Woodcock: the advice she gives is rational and well-informed.She divides the booklet in handy little sections:Management: Crate training, house training, setting boundaries, etc.Training: Methods to teach the crucial cues (sit, come back, etc.) with AND without clicker.Body language: Dee Woodcock also shares dog trainers' secrets on the subtle body language signs that will have you read your dog like no one else in no time. Mastering body language is an invaluable tool for reading budding signs long before they develop into full-blown problems, and the author does a great job at covering the subject in just a few lines.Addressing typical puppy problems: Humane and effective tips on dealing with typical complaints like jumping up, play biting, begging, separation intolerance, stealing, chewing, etc.My one gripe: I wish the pictures were illustrating the local text, rather than all condensed in the central section.I shouldn't blow its trumpet too much because, frankly, if the word spread, specialist trainers and behaviourists may soon be out of work...
