Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Resource I spent a fair bit of time choosing the dog guide that I did and this one has continued to prove to be an excellent resource not just for a puppy, but also for as the dog ages and behaviour problems become an issue or health concerns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent resource for the new dog owner A Labrador retriever puppy recently became part of our family. This book has been an excellent resource for preparing us for Dougal(the puppy). It is full of detailed, practical direction that helped us know what to expect, and how to happily and successfully bring a dog into our home.
