Owning a first dog: a survival guide book
Puppies are hard work! There is a lot to learn and it can be daunting and difficult. This workbook, with its weekly lessons will take you through the first year of owning your puppy. You will probably attend puppy classes and read books, but this is a different resource to help you manage this new relationship.
The ultimate hands-on guide
A Year with Your Puppy is designed to help you learn about your dog in a way that is manageable. The workbook is divided into weekly chunks, covering problems, training tips and information. Best of all, the workbook is interactive, with plenty of space for you to record your progress. You can try out the weekly challenges and write about what has gone well. You can also add a photo each week! At the end of the year, you should be proud of your dog and all that you have achieved.
Details of the book
NB: This book is PRINTED IN BLACK AND WHITE and designed to be written in. IT IS NOT A GLOSSY PICTURE BOOK
The course is designed to be finished, and this is not a glamorous, well-finished book, it is a rough-and-ready *work* book – it’s for people who want to finally understand their puppy, not just read about it. Be warned – there are plenty of photographs and illustrations, but they are NOT COLOUR and they are not fine art quality.
Please use the “Look Inside” feature which is enabled – you can see the workbook nature of the book before you buy, and check it is what you are expecting.
How to use the book
When you open this book you will breathe a sigh of relief, realising they don’t have to learn everything all at once. It is easy to navigate around the book, meaning you can skip ahead to find out how to tackle problems as they arise. You will also revisit some issues and challenges. And there is plenty to celebrate too! Room for you to record things that are going well, so you can really see the progress you and your puppy are making.
I have written the contents of this book initially as a series of blogs, so you can look at these online, on this website, for nothing. However, this book will give you the hands-on keepsake of the journey you take with your puppy.
