They are rambunctious, don't listen, make a mess,destroy your belongings, and never clean up after themselves. No, not children-puppies!
We may be your baby now, but if you want him to grow up to be your best friend, it's going to take some preparation. From the time he's just a twinkle in your eye to the end of the first year, Puppy Parenting helps you raise a happy, healthy, well-behaved puppy.

Now they've gathered all the information they've learned over the years and written the ultimate guide to bringing your puppy up right.
In Puppy Parenting, Jan and Gail guide you through all the developmental and behavioral stages of your puppy's first year:
Bringing baby home -- 1 to 4 months: getting his shots, learning his language, and dealing with separation anxiety, teething, and grooming
The brat zone-5 to 7 months: sending him to school, deciding whether or not to neuter, keeping him safe, socializing him, and determining the right diet for him

Pretty poor shape Jan 15, 2007
This book was not in very good shape. I was chewed on which was okay I knew that but it has a lot of markings and highlights in it. I was disapointed.
Smiled !! Aug 30, 2001
How many times Ive picked up a book about dogs to read, and by the third chapter got bored.......not with this book! I find it charming, funny, USEFUL, and so entertaining! Im not looking for gossip about Movie Stars, I leave that to The GOSSIP Magazines. My interest is in Puppies, and they have more than satisfied that issue. Good luck to you guys, keep up the good work!!!

Jan Greye and Jesse Smith, who are professional dog sitters, have written a delightful book that manages to be full of useful information--things such as which breeds will run up your vet bill and how to get a puppy to take a pill--and is at the same time a joy to read. Lots of very funny anecdotal stuff about their experiences with their doggie clients and the dogs' owners. A nice departure from all those dry, encyclopedic how-to-raise-your-puppy-from-A-to-Z volumes.
