An essential guide for every new puppy owner

I didn’t realise how much is involved in caring for a dog! This book has seriously useful information but I also found it funny and a joy to listen. Now that we are getting a puppy the information is proving invaluable in helping us to puppy-proof our home and to make it safe for the dog.

The author does a particularly good job of pointing out the many hazards around the home – little things that we often overlook. I’m truly grateful for this book.

Must-read for First Time Dog Owners

We’re finally getting a puppy in the new year and wanted to be extra prepared. This book is all that we needed. It has practical advice on food, training, socializing, and everything else. Narration was great too, I listened to it while running errands one afternoon.

Great Resource

The Audible " Teach Train and Play" is a great resource for teaching, training your your dog. I found valuable tips such as puppy cage location etc which I will begin to apply on my new dog.

WOW that was tons of Info!

We have been thinking as a family about getting a dog but I just was not sure with little kids around and never been a dog owner. This book was jam packed with things I had never thought of. Kids got interested in the audiobook and also started making notes and realized a few things they would be helping out with! :-) We may finally get a dog. This is an excellent guide from someone with experience. It was excellently paced and easy to follow. Thank you Nicholas!

This book is organized well and covers a lot of things to think of before you get a new puppy (or as soon as you can after getting a new puppy).

Great guide!

I have never listened to a dog training book before, but I found it very easy to learn all the tips and techniques. My favorite part was the discussion on crate training. This book has given me a lot of confidence in my ability to train my dog independently. The narrator also has a great voice.

Nicholas, thanks for this well-written audiobook. The narrator was an excellent choice and it made this audiobook a joy to listen to. The contents and the tips you share here are well explained and had helped me to prepare to become a proud owner of the man's best friend!.
I recommend this book to all noob dog owners like me, that have opened their house doors to a new puppy.

Let's do this!!

Recently got my first pup, so exciting but daunting at the same time. I was recommended this great audiobook by a friend. It really has everything covered that you would possibly need to know. I'm glad to say, I'm now a proud dog owner for 8 weeks and my pup is as good as any, alot of this is due to this audiobook and what I've learnt from it.

Great guide to being as ready as possible

We've been planning to adopt a dog early next year, but I want to be as well-prepared as possible (and I'm also super excited!) so I'm going through resources now to make sure we don't miss anything. This audiobook is a great guide for first time dog people. I like how it's divided into the 7 steps so you can learn at your pace section by section. As it rightly pinpoints many times, every interaction counts, whether it's a puppy or an adopted dog who is getting used to new humans. In this sense the guide is super well rounded, and covered all the questions I had to start with. Excellent!

Would recommend if your getting a dog!

Having just gotten my puppy, I was losing patience with training; I did not fully realize how much time and teaching new puppies require, I really enjoyed the clear, step-by-step approach of the book. I would recommend it to anyone thinking of getting a puppy.

Great listen

The author did a very good job in putting this audiobook together. As a first dog owner I was looking for some guidance on raising my puppy. This audiobook went over all the key areas I must know in order to raise my puppy. The advice on obedience commands were really interesting! Highly recommended listen

Needed this!

I've grown up with cats, and did not have a clue as to how much went into raising a puppy for the first time! This book really broke it all down and has made me feel a lot less intimidated, and so much more prepared! If you're a first time puppy owner (or soon to be) or you had trouble with your pups in the past, get this book! It'll take you through step by step how to potty train, build their food manners, etc. Great book!
