Is your puppy misbehaving? Abbehaving at home? Or suffering from separation anxiety? How about potty training? Trust us, we have all been there.
But really there is a solution to all your problems and it is to pick up a quality puppy guide book and spend some time with your new puppy. Sounds simple right? Well, yes, but there is actually a lot to think about before you commit to buying one of these books. There are many different kinds of books that can help you raise a healthy, happy puppy and they cover all the bases and have plenty of information so that you can do everything right from the beginning.
The first thing you should look for when picking up a puppy guide book is one that has clear instructions. Your puppy needs to know what you expect from him and what he must do. Each page should tell you exactly what to do and you should be able to repeat the process again until your puppy understands what you expect from him.
Second, you will need to find a good book with solid information. Most of the time, puppy guides are written by owners who themselves own dogs. They don’t understand the behavior that their puppies exhibit and they end up writing about what they don’t understand. So you will get a dog guide that covers only part of the issue that you are having. And because you don’t understand your pet’s behavior, your puppy guide won’t benefit you either.
Right From The Start
Next, you need to choose between a puppy that wants to learn and one that doesn’t. Some dogs are quite stubborn and want to know “right from the start” what they have to do. Other dogs are very easy to train and just want to please. Of course, the more experienced the dog, the easier it is to train but both types can be trained. Just be aware of which type you have and choose wisely.
Next, you need to make sure that the puppy guide book you get covers everything that you will need to know about raising and training your puppy. If it doesn’t cover these things, then you might end up buying another book because none of them covered them! The book must cover everything that you will have to know about raising and training a puppy and must also cover what vaccinations you will need to give your puppy. Even if it has a short chapter on this, you need to make sure that you don’t miss anything important.
The Language That Your Puppy Speaks
Finally, make sure that the puppy guide you get is written by someone who speaks the language that your puppy speaks. There are many books out there written by people who don’t even know English, much less know any kind of dog speak! These books will be very confusing to your puppy and will result in confusion for you as well.
Make sure you pick a book that is written by an expert and has lots of testimonials from other dog lovers. Ideally, you should be able to find at least two or three people who have used the tips and tricks described in the book and are happy to write a review for you.
With these tips, you will be able to choose the best puppy guide book for your needs. Start with a simple book at first and work your way up from there. It may take some time before you find the right book for your needs, but it will be worth the wait. Remember, if you get a book that does not cover all the things you need to know, then you are wasting your money! So read the book, understand what it has to teach, and start training your puppy properly!
