Canine behaviourist, dog advocate and bestselling author Brad Pattison is back with his essential guide for all things puppy.
From choosing the right breeder and your pup's first days with your family to street safety, chew training, grooming and bathing, Brad Pattison's Puppy Book covers pretty much everything a new dog owner needs to know. While Unleashed covered Pattison's basic training philosophies and how to correct negative behaviour, this book will ensure that you get things started on the right foot, and will keep those negative habits from forming later in life. With his proven canine communication techniques and safe, effective training methods, you don't have to be a fan of one of his shows to realize that Pattison's innovative approach stands out from the pack. He teaches you how to recognize and work with your puppy's needs, so that you can effectively communicate and bond with them. Pattison knows that there's no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to dog training, and puppies everywhere will be better off if their owners buy this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always happy when my clients have read it already! An easy weekend read and a great reference tool to raising a puppy for life right away. If you don't have a book about dogs or you are getting a dog I suggest highly you start here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quack quack If Brad Pattison is a canine behaviorist then I'm the sugar plum fairy. This book is chock full of bad information and I feel for people who get sucked in by this hogwash. Do not buy! Get your information from more reliable sources.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good It helped me understand that we are the top dog and that your dog doesn't run the house and our dog is so good with the rules that brad suggests

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrifying Brad Pattison is not a certified behaviorist and his advice in this book goes a long way to creating a serious breakdown in the dog-human relationship and possibly serious behavior problems commonly seen in the abandoned dogs at shelters. If you are looking for a loving, caring relationship with your companion animal then look elsewhere for advice.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Brad Pattison from his clients:
"My dog is proof that Brad's training really works. If you open your mind to a new way of training your dog, your world will open up--mine did and I have never looked back. Thank you, Brad, you changed our lives."
"My dog is one of the most loved dogs in the neighborhood simply because I've taught him manners, the Brad Pattison way!"
