 Product Description-Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The
Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and Well-Behaved
                              Dog
  Combining two popular titles in one value-priced edition, Before and After Getting Your Puppy is a simple, practical guide for
  anyone bringing a new puppy into the home. In clear steps, with helpful photos and easy-to-follow training deadlines, Dr. Ian
   Dunbar, who pioneered puppy classes and a loving style of dog training in the 1970s, presents a structured yet playful and
  humorous plan for raising a wonderful dog. The guide is based on six developmental deadlines: completing owner education
 and preparation, assessing a puppy's prior socialization and education, teaching errorless house-training and chewtoy-training,
  completing a socialization program of meeting strange dogs and people, learning bite inhibition, and continuing a program of
  ongoing training. In the first half of the book, Dr. Dunbar focuses on what the owner needs to know to select a great puppy. In
the second half, he presents the crucial lessons the puppy must be taught during its impressionable early development — using
                            a kind, positive approach that, over time, has been proven the most effective.

Essential Help for You and Your New Puppy, May 29, 2007 By Patricia R. Boswell (Los Gatos, CA)
  This review is from: Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and
Well-Behaved Dog (Hardcover) I bought this book after reviewing some of the articles on the [...]website, which offers a preview
of some of the key points of the book. I did read many of the reviews here and felt that the negative comments were somewhat
over-reactive.From my perspective, the book not only makes sense about how to raise a puppy, but also about how to raise a
child! Why waste time trying to teach kids or dogs what is wrong, until they eventually figure out what is right? That seems really
inefficient, now that I know the "lure-reward" technique. This technique lets you use the essential nature of the dog to train it to
do what you want it to do: pee, chew, and poop where you want it to, for instance. Walk calmly on leash, for another. The trick is
to not fall into the trap of thinking that a few weeks of short and long-term confinement is somehow cruel to the dog. Like
children, dogs respond quickly to a consistent routine. It DOES require YOU to be consistent and to have...

Even worth it AFTER you already have your pup, January 29, 2006 By rpcvmom (Austin)
This review is from: Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and
Well-Behaved Dog (Hardcover) I'd recommend this to anyone who has a pup already (get it quickly!) as well as anyone thinking
about adding a dog - also, get it quickly- before the dog, since you can. The "Before" part is a small fraction of the book, but
valuable. Reading it before getting Fido would help you better understand the particular (and commmonly unknown)challenges
training a dog entails, and help you choose a desirable breeder.Reading the WHOLE book before getting a puppy would really
help you prepare to become its owner and trainer.Some have said the book scared them, or that it was unrealistic...and if
making a mistake scares you, don't buy the book. However, if you can recover, and vow to try to do better, and realize your
mistakes or inadequacies do impact others (or your pet), but realize and accept that you can still make things up- just with extra
work- get this book. Dunbar doesn't try to scare folks, he just points out that mistakes can create bad/wrong impressions...

One of the BEST puppy books ever!, April 22, 2006 By F.Faulkner "F.F." (Hartford, CT USA)
This review is from: Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and
Well-Behaved Dog (Hardcover) I've read every dog training and behavior book out there since 1982. And I've raised six puppies
as my own pets over the years. When I found myself in a bind with a challenging, rambunctious new challenge, I read
everything looking for help- CESAR MILAN, GOOD OWNERS/GREAT DOGS by Kilcommons, PERFECT PUPPY Gwen Bailey
, MOTHER KNOWS BEST by Carol Lea Benjamin, HOW TO RAISE A PUPPY YOU CAN LIVE WITH, SARAH HODGSON,
THE ART OF RAISING A PUPPY, Jan Fennel'S DOG LISTENER, UNCLE MATTY.... you name it. I'd spend hours reading
looking for suggestions. Far and away the #1 book that helped me the most and offered me the most practical advice was IAN
DUNBAR'S BEFORE & AFTER YOU GET YOUR PUPPY- mostly the 'after' part! The book contains short and sweet, easy to
read and apply how to's for raising a well-behaved, well-adjusted puppy. You know the kind that goes potty outside, is quiet
through the night, will go into her crate and stay quietly without whining. After all these years, I thought I...
