“I have just bought home my new puppy and have been looking at books to help me. This is a fabulous book, great pictures easy to read and understand text. I really like the fact that it follows the same dogs from birth to adults and I will keep this book on my coffee table as a reference book. The authors don’t TELL you what to do with your puppy but EXPLAIN how different actions could affect your puppy which really makes you feel they care. I hope by the time my pup grows up there will be a follow up book!”
