Product Details


Product Description

From Library Journal

The 1981 edition (now out of print) of this little classic on puppy rearing was a word-of-mouth best seller. This substantially revised and expanded edition benefits from an additional decade of observation of puppy behavior by its authors and includes effective, up-to-date methods for educating puppies to become good canine citizens. Along with Job Michael Evans's The Evans Guide for Housetraining Your Dog (Howell, 1987), this is required reading for new puppy owners. Whether the copy still in circulation is battered and gnawed or the book slipped by the first time around, every public library should acquire this new edition, and academic libraries should seriously consider it for its insights into canine behavior. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can LIVE with my puppy May 19 2004
Format:Paperback
Orginally, I purchased 3 books on training new puppies. "How to Raise A Puppy You Can Live with" is the only book I would recommend. And I do highly recommend it. I found it to be interesting and descriptive, but also an easy read, with language for the lay audience. The book details the growth of a puppy, at which ages to expect certain results, training methods at different age levels, and methods to punish a puppy without being cruel (like ignoring your puppy, which gets them begging for your love and acceptance). The book is filled with tons of advice on situations that will be encountered along the way of raising your puppy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for new dog owners Nov. 14 2003
Format:Paperback
This book is a must have for all dog owners. This book is easy to read and easy to understand. It gives very useful insight and ideas for raising a new puppy. It is broken down in developmental stages. And also gives suggestions and ideas for training you new dog. I have read other books on new puppies and this one is the best. This should be a book breeders give to all who buy their pups no matter the breed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oustanding and informative March 1 2003
Format:Paperback
Oustanding and informative book, especially for the first time puppy owner. Explains in detail the emotional, physical and social development of a puppy. If more future dog owners knew what to expect in advance, they would be better prepared, and there would be fewer dogs in shelters. Arlene Millman, author of BOOMERANG - A MIRACLE TRILOGY (The tale of a remarkable Boston Terrier).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I could find all week May 7 2013
By dude
Format:Paperback
I spent all week looking in local bookstores for a good puppy training book. 3 bookstores later, I have a single book that I found worth reading- this was it. I have "Puppy's first steps" and "don't shoot the dog" on the way now too, but that still makes How to Raise a Puppy you can Live With an amazing book.

I have the second edition, I'm toying with the idea of tracking down a copy of the 4th, see what's new in it...
