    I read several books to prepare for our puppy and this one was our favorite.

    I’m of mixed feelings on this one. Some of it was not much different than several other positive dog training books I’ve read. Notably different is his recommendation to do calming breathing exercises before starting each training session. It probably helps you both to manage yourself and, since dogs read body language do well, to convey calmness to your dog. The author does do a good job of really breaking down the steps for each training exercise, and levels thereof. It gets repetitive but it I’m of mixed feelings on this one.

The author does do a good job of really breaking down the steps for each training exercise, and levels thereof. It gets repetitive but it does make sure you are clear on how to progress. He also has a really good troubleshooting section near the end. It lists multiple possible approaches for each problem, instead of one like many books. Those are why I gave it four stars On the other hand, I could deal without the anti-vaccination and pro-homeopathy parts.

    A word to the wise: if you are planning on getting a puppy and want to invest in some research material, make sure you've completed your reading BEFORE the puppy arrives. I made it through the first chapter of this book, which posed the question: "Are you ready for a puppy?" My answer was "yes", then 2 days later I had a 4 month old border collie mix pooping on the bathroom floor and eating my coffee table.

The leisurely days of perusing a good book while sipping tea in my pajamas are over, my friends. My life is now consumed by chew toys, gluten free training treats, and flea treatments. I don't even have time to read emails. But there is some good news, here. Once a puppy is in your life EVERYONE whose ever even MET a puppy has advice about how to raise them to be well-behaved, well-adjusted dogs. And a lot of these people have probably read these books already, or at least have seen something informative on Oprah.

    I thought that The Puppy Whisperer by, Paul Owens was a great book. This book gave a lot of great tips and learning tricks for a new puppy or for an adult dog. For example it told you how to teach your dog or puppy how to sit, lay down, stay, and much more. This book also gave you some activities for you to do with your dog or puppy, for example you could play fetch, hide and seek, walk your dog or puppy, and run around with your dog or puppy.

Another great thing about this book is that when the author told you a learning trick, or a new game on the side it would have a picture of a dog or puppy doing the learning trick, or a new game with or without it's owner. This book is great for animal lovers or people who just got a new dog or puppy!

    I am giving this three stars, because I haven't tried applying the puppy training methods yet. At first this book overwhelmed me with all of the lists and schedules. As I continued reading, I found the explanation of training steps very easy to understand. I also found the ideas for using Kongs helpful. There is a very good troubleshooting section at the back of the book. I am getting a puppy in a few weeks. Reading this book has made me feel more confident.

    This is a very detailed presentation of rearing puppies by classical conditioning; or Puppy Psychology 101. Classical conditioning has exceptionally specific protocol; as if you are doing a research experiment. But, it does work, if you have the patience and perseverance of a perfectionist. It would seem to me that not all of the teaching needs to be so precise, but if you are not getting the results you want, this book can help you.

    Very thorough book from prior to bringing the puppy home to needed supplies to obedience/trick training to problem solving. I wish I had read this book when I brought my first puppy home. I am preparing for a second puppy, thus trying to read and educate myself more before I bring it home. I will definitely refer to this book when questions/problems arise.

    I found this book very helpful. I have only browsed through one other puppy training book so I don't have much to compare this with, but I did like it better than the other one I browsed. All the information I've utilized in this book has been effective. I like the non-violent approach. The writing is clear and the instructions easy to follow. The book is well organized for easy referencing. I found this book very helpful.

    I like the methods taught in this book. And it is well-organized. I bought my own copy and plan to compare the other books I am looking at against it. I guess we'll find out if it is actually 'good' when we follow it and see the results :) I like the methods taught in this book. And it is well-organized.

    This method may work for some dogs, but not all. By characterizing people who ever punish their dogs for misbehaviour as uncivilized, Owens has encouraged lots of people to prefer to have completely untrained dogs.

    This was a good, if fairly simple, book of instructions on how to care for a puppy. I think it could have used more detail on some of the training issues, although overall it was interesting and helpful.

    what i learned from this book: 1. people that write these books are a tad crazy 2. puppies are pretty stupid. overall this book was full of helpful information on raising a puppy and introducing him to the world.

    I was actually finding this book useful until it started talking about pet homeopathy. Really? How can I take anything else I read in this book seriously now?
