This book took a holistic view of the training of a puppy. We began by discussing the idea of what is a pet and explored the possibility of having a puppy as a pet. Before moving ahead with this idea, few essentials were also mentioned for the readers and prospective puppy owners.
Then came the stage of discussing essential aspects of training the puppy such as
•MAKING PUPPY PART OF THE FAMILY
•THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIALIZATION FOR DOGS
•TACKLING AGGRESSIVE DOGS
•HOW TO ELIMINATE DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOUR
•UNDERSTANDING THEIR PSYCHOLOGY
•UNDERSTANDING THEIR PHYSIOLOGY
This was a detailed discussion then culminated into the golden seven steps that are the take way of this book.
•BRINING YOUR PUPPY HOME
•PREVENTING FOOD AGGRESSION
•SOCIALIZING YOUR PUPPY
•KEY COMMANDS OF TRAINING
•LEASH TRAINING AND COMING
Some general tips regarding health, grooming, and nutrition were mentioned in brief at the end that will help the owner or trainer troubleshoot the problem.
But in the end it must be stated with utmost of honesty and diligence that while this book is an earnest effort on my part to help you train your puppy to the fullest, we must bear in mind that like humans the cute little guys known as the puppies also have feelings and we must consider compassion, care, and love as the foremost guiding principles. Because like the breeds of the dogs that vary, the behavior and tendencies to react to situations also vary with every dog. Every dog has a different personality and psyche and cannot be treated alike. While these are standard ways and means to train your puppy, there is a need to apply prudence, logic, and care. There is definitely a method to this madness.
While the aim is to help you train your puppy, the hidden intent is that you can foster a lasting bond with your pet that can withstand tough times, sickness, and health.
