9780060012601: Puppy Parenting: Everything You Need to Know About Your Puppy's First Year

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.

Jan Gteye and Gail Smith -- aka the Dog Divas of Beverly hills -- have been helping to nurture pampered puppies in the 90210 zip code for more than sixteen years and are truly the best puppy caregivers around. 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
  • Young adult -- 8 to 12 months: dealing with his teenage months, traveling with him, learning games that are fun to play and will help with his development

Puppy Patenting contains everything a parent needs to know:

  • Choosing the right breed for your personality and lifestyle
  • Finding a reputable breeder or picking the perfect pound pup
  • Preparing your home for the new arrival: buying everything you need (and nothing you don't), puppyproofing your home, and getting your family ready
  • Housebreaking: crate, paper, and tether training -- and what to do when mistakes happen
  • Training techniques: how to get your pup to listen -- and what to do when he doesn't
  • Keeping puppy healthy -- and when to call a vet

Complete with all the information you need to make it through the first year, Puppy Patenting is every proud puppy parent's bible.
