Dr. Ian Dunbar, an internationally known Veterinarian Behaviorist gave Michigan Dog Trainer explicit permission to share the below puppy books with you. Please download them free of charge and email them to someone you know who is about to or has gotten a new puppy.
"BEFORE You Get Your Puppy": Ian describes his book and we agree, it is "simply a MUST READ for anyone thinking of getting a puppy. Puppies should be raised in an errorless housetraining and chewtoy-training set-up. This is very easy to do. Everything you need to know is described in this little book. Otherwise, if puppies are allowed to eliminate anywhere and chew anything in their kennel, that's what they'll continue to do when you bring them home.
Most important, puppies must be socialized before they are three months old. Preventing fearfulness and aggression is easy and fun whereas trying to resolve adult problems is difficult, time-comsuming and not always successful. Please download and email this book to every prospective and new puppy owner that you know in order to help spread the word that Puppyhood is the Time to Rescue Adult Sheter Dogs."
"AFTER You Get Your Puppy": "This book covers house-soiling, destructive chewing, barking,
separation anxiety, socialization, handling, puppy biting,
bite-inhibition and preventing adolescent problems. Please download this book and email it to everyone that you know who
has, or is thinking of acquiring, a new puppy."
