Gonna Buy Me a Dog

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
This book is a must read for individuals who are “just looking” and are not ready to commit to having a new dog or puppy in their home. However, this book is also intended for those people who already have a 4-legged friend and now want or need a little assistance. This is not another "Dog Training" handbook; in fact, it is the opposite. This is more of a "People Training" book for dogs. More

This book is great--very informative, positive, and practical. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about getting a puppy. As an experienced animal handler, I feel that this book is a great guide for the beginner and experienced alike.

Gonna Buy Me a Dog, is a wonderful manual for new dog owners, and, I think, new dog owners who think they know it all because they had a dog when they were a kid. I had an aunt who raised miniature Schnauzers and my care and raising of a puppy was important to the raising of myself as a person. By golly, we even won a blue ribbon at a dog show. It's really good for children to learn how to care for an animal. And adults need to know, too. Gonna Buy Me a Dog is the manual you should have for the latest information on choosing a dog, understanding its diet, how to train, teach it to socialize, and the myriad of activities and duties needed when you take on the serious responsibility of owning a dog. Myself, I think I'm going to print out the chapter on "Excessive Barking" and stick it in my neighbor's mailbox! Please, don't be that kind of dog owner.

This book, I'm Gonna Buy Me a Dog has been a life saver. I have really learned myself, ( and taught my dog,) how to communicate. We no longer have a dog that darts into the street, barks at neighbors or passing cars, or hews on furniture. And, we have lost that urine smell in the house. What a great read and very practical to put into effect.

Glad I bought I'm Gonna Buy Me A Dog.
