Welcome Your Puppy from Planet Dog
  How to Go Beyond Training and Raise Your Best Friend
An Innovative, Engaging Puppy Guide that Teaches You How to Get Great Results by
Working With Rather Than Against - Your Puppy’s Innate Tendencies

“I absolutely cannot wait for this book. ... There’s nothing like it out there, and this fresh voice is just what today’s puppy owners need. Kathy Callahan’s everyday work with current owners shows on every page. She knows exactly what they’re going through and exactly what they need to hear.” Nancy Kerns, editor of Whole Dog Journal

A decade of working with people who’ve just added a puppy to the household has taught certified professional dog trainer Kathy Callahan (CPDT-KA) a fundamental truth: at some point after the initial honeymoon, every single one of them feels overwhelmed. When they seek out expertise, they’re flooded with impossibly detailed advice, conflicting opinions, and a surprising number of techniques that seem unkind.
In contrast, Callahan reassures owners that success flows not from nailing an intimidating list of disciplinary details, but instead from shifting their approach from that of “master” to one of “cultural ambassador.” The key to great training is recognizing that we have essentially kidnapped these puppies from their own vastly different culture. Using that grounding Planet Dog principle, Callahan covers the puppy essentials and more, including:
• how to prepare your house (and yourself) for puppy hood
• the best ways to handle potty training, chewing, jumping, and other challenges
• why it might seem your puppy “just doesn’t listen”
• how to help puppies and young kids, other dogs, and/or cats live safely and happily together
With fun-to-read chapters in a wise, friendly tone, Welcoming Your Puppy from Planet Dog paves the way for a rewarding friendship between a relaxed, well-prepared human and a canine family member who’s happily at ease in our world.
