Puppy Development

Reviewer: Lynn Cone

I love this book. I always give it in my puppy packet to my puppy buyers, it gives such a great insight into puppy development and families know what they can expect.



Excellent Book

Reviewer: Vicki Allenbrand

This is a great book to have around for a new litter. I have followed this book with my most recent litter and have found a positive difference in their development. I send a copy of the book with each puppy buyer so they can continue to help their puppies develop in a positive way. In addition, it goes into nutrition, preparing for the show ring and other topics beyond raising a litter.


Awesome book for anyone with a puppy

Reviewer: Stevie Mathre

A series of essays, written by various people in many aspects of dogs. Each essay can stand on its own. Some are in depth, some short & to-the-point. The first essay talking about development at various ages is invaluable! Although the first few weeks at the breeder’s home will be over by the time puppy comes home, the information is useful & the suggestions for the next weeks will keep you going on the right road.
