I like this book

After owning several dogs and knowing quite a lot about the different kinds of puppy training, I found this book an excellent piece of work. I love the training methods and humor in the book and couldn’t put it down till I had finished it. I learnt a lot more about raising my latest pup and I will definitely use the techniques suggested. I will recommend this book as one of the best puppy training books I’ve ever listen to. So, Thank you.

Very Interesting Book

There is information when the puppy is a puppy/dog that is older and being rehomed. I wish I had listen this book first because it is exactly the right book. I like that it is all laid out on what to do each of the weeks.

Worth the price

I couldn’t put it down! Very informative and the training really works! The personal stories and how the training was applied in the different scenarios really helped me realize my dog is normal when it comes to certain behaviors. So far what I’ve tried has worked wonderfully!

Very informative

Straightforward. He keeps it simple and gives you the knowledge and a story about all the techniques he shares. Day one and I thought a stubborn Shiba Inu to sit and down. Our other Shiba is on Stay, although he has a basic understanding of it. Very pleased with this audio-book and will definitely reference it as I continue to train my pups!

Good!

His methods are far superior to other audio-books etc that i have used before on other puppies. His method is easy to use and make sense. My dog reacted positively to the training methods immediately and she was only 3 months old.

Lots of example stories

Good way to find out what works and what doesn't for different dogs. Love all the examples of rescued and changed dogs, length of time it took, and the types of people the dogs were given to for their needs. Some stories will bring a tear to your eyes.

Excellent!

I’ve never listen audio-book so fast! Learning about his dogs and experiences was just the icing on the cake - bed this audio-book through and through. We’re working with our new pup and Paul's advise was just what I needed. Wish he’d just come and train for me haha but it’s good for us and happy to have this new set of tools to use on our pup.

Helpful!

This is a great step by step guide to ensure your dog has trained. I went back to this book a few times to make sure I was doing things right. It was a god send when one day I let go of my dogs lead, by accident, and I used one of the tips from the audio-book to get him to come back to me.

Teaching this old dog new tricks!

Insightful, practical, light-hearted. On my 3rd listen now as we embark on getting a pup once more. So listenable. Getting insights into what well intentioned but unhelpful habits I had with my old dogs.
