Helpful, practical, compassionate, effective

I found this book very helpful. The strategies were clearly explained with reasons for them, consequences of not following them and detailed descriptions of how to carry out strategies for a wide variety of situations that commonly come up with puppies. I have had three dogs from 1 year up but never from new born so I was very keen to hear insights in this area and I was not disappointed. Would highly recommend.
