Good refresher

My wife and I have always had dogs, but after we lose one as they get old and pass we take a break for a few years until we are ready to have a new family member. We begin to miss the welcome home we get and the general companionship. So whenever we get a new puppy we like to brush up on everything we need to know about having a new puppy. Even though we have always had dogs, It has usually been 12 -14 years since we have had a "puppy". And every dog is different. This book is laid out in an easy-to-understand manner that we appreciated. It's a good checklist for a first-time puppy owner or even people that have been without a fur baby for a few years. Puppies need to start out on the right foot if they are going to develop into the kind of companion you will enjoy having around for several years. This book covers everything you need to know to make sure you are starting out welcoming a new puppy in a way that will not only teach them what they need to know but teach the owners how to properly consider the puppy's needs as they grow. Excellent refresher for my family. Love the narrator's voice as well.

Really works!!

Bought this as our roommate had decided to get a puppy, but all the roommates including myself agreed to help take care of it. It was a golden retriever puppy, and knew we wanted to start building training habits early but weren't exactly sure how. Bought this audiobook and it has truly provided guidance for every angle we could possibly consider, and more! It breaks down the puppy's learning process, how to enforce training guidelines, and strategies for working with the puppy if you encounter challenges.

So far we have been applying the techniques successfully, and we're optimistic that by the end he will be appropriately house broken, with a foundation for behavior in the house he will know to follow for the rest of his life. The narrator is even toned and easy to listen to, and the author obviously has a ton of experience in the topic.

Life Saver!

OMG, this book couldn't be more perfect if you have a new puppy. We recently got our own puppy. This book really covers everything you need to know to survive your new puppy! We are literally living with a land shark puppy right now. The section on chewing is so helpful! I wish I read this book sooner, now I know how to deal with my puppy treating me as her chew toy. If you have a puppy, you need this book. If you are thinking about getting a puppy, you should read this book first!

For the love of dogs.

Solid information. The second chapter on potty training is really helpful. I've struggled in the past getting my dogs to just behave regardless of the breed. Good to have this helpful audiobook to help guide dog training with more structure to it.

Amazing information to prepare!

I figured I'd know everything within this book as I've had several puppies, but it's been so long since I've gone through breaking in a new puppy I was actually surprised at how much I had forgotten.

The commands chapter really made me realize how much work it's going to be to teach those simple things, but it's also exciting thinking of teaching a new little member of the family all of the fun stuff. Definitely my favorite chapter of the book.

ALSO - this is a wonderful resource that helped our kiddos realize how much work goes into getting a puppy. They always think it's just a cakewalk, and parents saying that it's not easy somehow doesn't resonate. Hearing all of the things to think about to make sure that the puppy is taken care of properly gave them a new perspective.

Perfect Puppy Training !

I learned something here, i liked how you use a puppy pad that looks like grass,Never use a crate for punishment,Never push their face in the waste product. Feeding them and relieving them soon after. Do not give them coconut water. Basic commands is covered and which breed to pick?

I feel prepared

I got my dog as a puppy 10 years ago and I remember potty training was a nightmare. I've been wanting to get a second dog but realized that I needed to find some resources for potty training and puppy training in general. This book presents a quite a few ideas that I had not thought of previously and even highlighted some of the things that I did incorrectly last time. Thank you Helen for helping me with this, as I feel more ready to assume ownership of my new puppy! So Excited!

All you need to know!

After reading this book I feel so much more confident in preparing for, taking care of, and training my new puppy. I am in the prep stage still and this book gave me a list of things to do before I welcome her into our home. This book was very well organized and easy to follow and I would recommend it to anyone like me, who doesn't know where to begin when welcoming a puppy into the family!

Helpful for the beginning.

Some of us could’ve used this before all the messes. Lol. Very helpful guide here. If you’re new to pet keeping this is a great start. It has covered all aspects from the first day at home, how to assimilate them to the house, and great ideas from start to finish.

Easy & friendly for beginners

Adopting a new puppy made me excited but nervous too. Sometimes it's frustrating when you don't know how to tame your dog. Thanks to this book, I and my dog Milo get along very well. It covers thorough and practical tips on dog training and really helped me a lot! Chapter 4 about" Food and Feeding" is very informative and helpful. Highly recommended to beginners!

A Helpful Guide!

My son has always wanted to have a dog, but my worry was how to care for and train the puppy when we bring it home, and this book comes in handy. It gives a good guide on all that is needed to settle down a pubby to its new home. It does cover all the essentials making potty realistic easy as well.

Needed this!

I’ve read and listened to a few books on puppy training but this is by far my favourite. It was simply explained and was straight to the point. Great job by author in putting this altogether!
But I will add that I would’ve preferred if the author attached a PDF of the ebook so I could follow along whilst listening to the narrator.

Helped me feel more prepared

I’ve been thinking about getting a puppy, and been quite nervous about what to expect. This has calmed me right down, making me feel more confident about making that decision. Lots of practical information, and things I didn’t think about.

Life saver !

When we first got a pup my partner was so scared and put off, mainly cause the whole idea of training it was daunting. It can be incredibly hard work and very messy. I’m so thankful we stumbled across this as it’s calmed the two of us down and made everything so simple and clear! Its perfect how it immediately starts from day one of bringing the pup home and the author makes your reading/listening experience a pleasure to sit through!

Excellent

As a new puppy owner, this has been VERY helpful. I've watched youtube videos and read blogs, but there's something about having all of the right information in one place that makes it that much simpler. I've been applying it where needed but it's nice to have this in my back pocket for the future as well.

Wish I'd found this earlier!

We got a puppy about 2 months ago, we were very excited until it started leaving us little 'girfts' around the house then it was only my duty to clean up!!
we tried training him but struggled..then I found this book . I can honestly say, it has definitely changed our lives well especially mine as I don't have to go around cleaning after the puppy anymore.
We just followed the advice given in this book and made sure we did everything that was suggested from potty training, what food to give to the puppy, to not get the dog excited when coming into or leaving the home and even the type of toys we should buy!
This book is like a one stop shop where you can get everything you need!
