Written in an easy and engaging style, it includes an in-depth look at housebreaking, covers every area of concern for new puppy owners including home manners, socializing, obedience training and much more. Unlike other training manuals, this book contains a day by day, week by week timeline explaining exactly how and when to introduce the exercises in this book. It contains over 200 photos and illustrations (more than any other puppy book) to clearly demonstrate how to perform every exercise discussed. It's also heavily cross referenced for ease of use and filled with dozens of resources to other areas of puppy raising and dog training.

About the Author:

Michael Wombacher has been involved with dogs for over twenty years and at this point has performed over 20,000 in-home behavior consultations covering the entire spectrum of dog behavior from the mundane to the bizarre. He is an author (his most recent book, "Good Dog Happy Baby," is a bestseller), lecturer and has also taught classes, trained other trainers and runs his own boarding and training operation. Mike is certified as an expert on dog behavior by the California Superior Court and does occasional work evaluating dogs in legal matters. He has appeared on CNN, Animal Planet, Fox 5 Television's Good Day New York, San Francisco's Channel 7 News, "The Family Pet" with Dr. Jonathan Greenfield as well as radio programs and podcasts around the country. Mike trains dogs for high profile celebrities in the entertainment, tech, and financial worlds such as Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, Joe Satriani, Kirk Hammet, Barry Levinson, Charles Schwab and Michael Tilson Thomas, the Fisher family (owners of the Gap), Max Levchin (founder of PayPal), Mickey Drexler (CEO of J. Crew), Chad Hurley (founder of YouTube), Kevin & Julia Hartz (founders of EventBrite), Jeremy Stoppelman (founder of Yelp) and others. His training approach focuses on channeling a dog's natural drives and instincts into behaviors acceptable in the human pack primarily through principles of operant conditioning as well as through methods that appeal to your dog's canine sensibilities. His training methods are so effective and his style so clear that Michael Tilson Thomas, music director of the San Francisco Symphony and one of the great classical musicians of our time, commented that "Michael Wombacher is a Maestro of dog trainers. His clarity of thinking, sense of humor and skills in communicating make dog training fun for both pet and pet lover."
