In clear steps, with helpful photos and easy-to-follow training deadlines, Dr. Ian Dunbar, who pioneered puppy classes and a loving style of dog training in the 1970s, presents a structured yet playful and humorous plan for raising a wonderful dog.

AFTER You Get Your Puppy covers the last three developmental deadlines that your puppy needs to meet before he is five months old: 1. Your puppy should be socialized to a wide variety of people, especially children, men, and strangers, before he is twelve weeks old. 2. Your puppy must learn to inhibit the force of his bites and develop a "soft mouth" before he is eighteen weeks old. 3. You must prevent predictable adolescent problems. Veterinarian and animal behaviorist Dr. Ian Dunbar is the original creator of off-leash puppy classes, which sparked the revolution for positive, reward-based, dog-friendly dog training.

"I'm a dog fanatic, read everything I can find on dog behavior, and this book is terrific! It was a great reminder of all those other times I can be naturally shaping my two dogs' behavior without their even knowing they're behaving perfectly. The illustrations are fun and funny. And the methods are clearly spelled out — how to do them, why they work, how they make the doggie-human bond a more loving one." — Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club, The Hundred Secret Senses and The Kitchen God's Wife "Andrea Arden is to be congratulated on this wonderful book on dog training (and I'm sure that dogs everywhere would agree). Her approach is humane, user-friendly, dog-friendly and guaranteed to produce the desired results. A must-read for owners." — Dr. Nicholas Dodman, author of The Dog Who Loved Too Much and Dogs Behaving Badly "Dog-Friendly Dog Training will make you your dog's best friend. Use Andrea's training methods and you'll soon find your dog wanting to work for you. It provides easily understood information on dog training with a strong emphasis on the positive. She makes training so simple that a child can easily train the family pet. If dogs carried cash, I guarantee you they'd be buying copies for the humans they live with." —Wayne Hunthausen, DVM, director of Animal Behavior Consultations. Co-author of The Handbook of Behavior Problems of the Dog and Cat.

Long known as a dog coach to the stars—her clients include Oprah Winfrey, Ben Affleck, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Owen Wilson, Natalie Portman, and Larry King—Tamar Geller changed the way Americans relate to their dogs with her bestselling book The Loved Dog. Her approach is simple and down-to-earth. Instead of utilizing the negative and often painful feedback of physical dominance, choke chains, and prong collars, Tamar recommends love, play, and mutual respect as the keys to a happy home for dog and human alike. Now, Tamar makes her Loved Dog™ Method accessible for everyone with this day-by-day guide that will lead you through the first thirty days with your new dog—or help you make a fresh start with your current dog. Drawing on her studies of wolves in the wild and basing her method on the principles of child development, Tamar uses an "instincts versus choice" approach that satisfies a dog’s Seven Basic Needs and will result in a pet with good manners. 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog covers every question commonly asked by people embarking on the momentous journey of dog ownership: why it’s important to choose the appropriate dog for you and your lifestyle, what you can expect from a puppy versus an adult dog, how to introduce your new dog to your home, and how to respond when things don’t go according to plan. Tamar guides you every step of the way, from addressing undesired behaviors in your dog to crate and paper training him to introducing him to other dogs and helping him become relaxed with strangers. Included are important but often overlooked tips about the use of words and body language to communicate, the power of play, and the amazing value of teaching your dog some lighthearted pet tricks. Along the way, Tamar debunks myths in need of debunking: that dogs are frequently "alpha" by nature and need to be dominated; that discipline is the key to dog training, and that "success" only means getting your dog to do what you want. Instead, she shows how to align your dog's wishes with your own to create a rich and enduring relationship that works wonderfully for you both. Gentle, firm, and effective, 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog will build your relationship with your dog to make every new day together a day of love, joy, and discovery.
