Publisher's Summary

Discover how to raise an amazing, obedient, and happy puppy without having to use punitive and inhumane training methods with this definitive guide to positive home training for puppies!

Do you want to raise a puppy into a lifelong companion, but don't know where to begin? Are you tired of your adorable little fur ball gnawing at everything in sight and pooping all over the house?

Do you find yourself often staring at other puppy owners in amazement at how they are able to get their puppies to listen to their commands while you struggle with getting yours to obey the simplest of instructions?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then this guide is for you.

Training a puppy can look like tons of fun, but it can be a head-scratching and difficult experience if you don't know what you're doing. It can be frustrating enough to resort to using spanking, yelling, and other less-than-ideal training methods to get your puppy to behave, which often makes the problem worse.

In this guide, Alexander Ward shows you everything you need to know about house-training even the most energetic and rambunctious of puppies and getting them to listen to your commands.

From crate training to obedience training, you're handed all the tools to effectively train your dog without using abusive and ineffective techniques.

Here's a snippet of what you're going to learn in Raising Your Puppy:

  • Everything you need to know about dogs if you're a new owner
  • The simple, four-step method to help you select the perfect puppy that is right for your temperament and personality
  • Nine must-have puppy supplies that are absolutely indispensable and will make raising your puppies a breeze
  • Housebreaking: how to effectively potty train your puppy in a few weeks like a pro
  • Foolproof techniques to teach your puppy obedience without using punishment tactics and intimidation
  • 15 surefire techniques to help you handle your puppy's first night in your home without losing sleep
  • How to "puppy-proof" and inspect every area of your home before your new puppy arrives to get rid of items that may be potentially dangerous to your new pet
  • The definitive guide to dog nutrition and step-by-step instructions to help you choose the very best food for your puppy
  • How to choose the very best health care provider or vet for your fluffy canine
  • Signs of potential health problems you have to be aware of as a dog or puppy owner
  • ...and tons more!

Imagine being able to housebreak and bond with your puppy in a powerful way in as little time as possible. This guide is perfect for you even if you've never raised a puppy in your entire life, or you're a pro looking for new ways to effectively train your little canine sidekick.

Rubbish English

Sounds like it has been poorly translated from another language. Rubbish and makes it hard to listen to. Shame because the content is ok.

I like this audiobook so much

I've been training my puppy for 2 years, and I have recommended this guide to all of my fellow puppy owners! It's a great way to get through the first year of puppy-hood, and have a puppy you'll be proud to call yours and an incredibly well trained puppy. This training guide really contains many important pieces of advice
