Canine behaviourist, dog advocate and bestselling author Brad Pattison is back with his essential guide for all things puppy. From choosing the right breeder and your pup's first days with your family to street safety, chew training, grooming and bathing, Brad Pattison's Puppy Bookcovers pretty much everything a new dog owner needs to know. While Unleashedcovered Pattison's basic training philosophies and how to correct negative behaviour, this book will ensure that you get things started on the right foot, and will keep those negative habits from forming later in life. With his proven canine communication techniques and safe, effective training methods, you don't have to be a fan of one of his shows to realize that Pattison's innovative approach stands out from the pack. He teaches you how to recognize and work with your puppy's needs, so that you can effectively communicate and bond with them. Pattison knows that there's no such thing as one-size-fits-all when it comes to dog training, and puppies everywhere will be better off if their owners buy this book.
