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.

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.

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.

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).

Format: Paperback
This is a great guide to the crucial developmental milestones in a puppy's life that can have profound lifelong impacts on you dog's temperament and happiness. For instance, the book describes the importance of how and how much you interact with your puppy, and I never before knew that puppies went through a "fear week" that can impact how they respond to stimuli for the rest of their lives. I strongly feel that every puppy owner should read this book - preferably BEFORE they get a puppy!

This book is a great "dog bible"! It covers everything you need to know, from selecting a puppy to breeding it, and everything in between. It is easy and interesting to read, and is clear and concise, along with having great advice! I would recomend this book to anyone thinking about getting a dog!

This book is amazing. I think it is a must have for all dog owners, and a must send with your puppies. Everything the average puppy owner needs to know is in this book. If you're just looking for a puppy, read this book first. One of the best books on puppies I've ever read.
