I was excited to receive a copy of “Everything You Need to Know About House Training Puppies and Adult Dogs” in exchange for a fair and honest review. Not only that, but it’s all part of a fun giveaway event called the Sizzling Winter Blog Hop & Treasure Hunt!
“Everything You Need to Know About House Training Puppies and Adult Dogs” was a helpful book. It feels as if Lori is talking directly to you. If you are thinking about getting your first dog or you just brought your first dog home, then this is a must read. It is even a good read for those that already have had a dog for a while and are still trying to teach them or teach them all over again for whatever reason. This book really teaches you how a dog thinks and helps you to understand a dog. It is a very easy read and has step by step instructions as well as checklist of supplies, feeding chart, sample schedules, and a housebreaking chart. The book is broken into two parts: How to Teach Your Dog and Preventing and Solving Problems. The first part goes into the entire process of how to house train your dog where as the second part gives different problems that people have with their dogs and how to solve them. By the time that I received this book, Simba was already house trained, but I still learned things that were helpful to me such as food tips, visiting others with your pet, and how to correct a dog. Did you know that you must correct a dog at the time of an act that you didn’t want him to do otherwise he has no idea what you’re talking about!? I didn’t know that, but now I know thanks to Lori! The book pretty much focuses on crate training and taking your dog outside to do his business. Simba was crate trained, but he was also trained to ring the bell on the door that opens to our balcony where his training pad is to do his business. In this book, Lori pretty much tells you that you don’t need training pads, newspaper, or a litter box. I don’t see anything wrong with training pads and Simba is house trained just fine. That’s the only thing that I didn’t really like about the book, but you can still apply all of these steps and tips to your dog if you crate train him and want him to use training pads or whatever you choose. After all, it’s your choice and whatever works for you, works for you. All in all I enjoyed reading the book and it is very helpful. You should check it out if you’re having trouble house training your dog or you are new to house training your dog completely.
