Very few dog trainers have not been influenced by Dr. Ian Dunbar's dog-friendly philosophy. This book is fantastic - Dr. Dunbar is clear and concise with his instructions, and his techniques are strongly rooted in animal behavior science.

Very few dog trainers have not been influenced by Dr. I'm considering becoming a first time dog owner, and Dr. Dunbar's frankness and honesty were very appreciated, as were his very creative and surprisingly doable training techniques. I feel confident in my decision to get a puppy now, and his instructions/guides have given me a very good idea of what to expect and how to prepare.

Before Dr. Dunbar there were no classes for puppies, very few family dog classes . Dunbar there were no classes for puppies, very few family dog classes, and not much fun in dog training. His positive approach to training revolutionized the field, especially in training puppies. Before & After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy & Well-Behaved Dog. ISBN. 1577314557 (ISBN13: 9781577314554).

The book calls itself "The POSITIVE approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy & Well-Behaved Dog, but it's certainly not a positive approach for the potential doggy parent. I also found the book to be fairly repetitive - it is now burned in my skull that I should be using Kong dog toys. Of course, consistency and repetition work for dogs, so maybe the author thinks that will work with humans as well. My takeaway from the book is that his way is the ONLY way to raise a pup. Otherwise I will end up ruining him, and he will probably be euthanized in a shelter because I'll abandon.

The book calls itself "The POSITIVE approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy & Well-Behaved Dog, but it's certainly . Ian Dunbar is one of the foremost dog behavior experts. His approach is based on science: what techniques for raising puppies have been proven effective. His approach is also designed for those of us who are utterly human: our timing is imperfect and we are not 100% consistent - there are no "don't try this at home" warnings here.

A revolution for dogs:Very few dog trainers havenotbeen influenced by Dr. Ian Dunbar’s dog-friendly philosophy. In the 1970s, Dr. Ian Dunbar sparked a dramatic shift in puppy training ― away from leash corrections and drill-sergeant adult dog training classes based on competitive obedience and toward a positive approach using toys, treats, and games as rewards for teaching basic manners, preventing behavior problems, and modifying temperament. Before Dr. Dunbar there were no classes for puppy training, very few family dog classes, and not much fun in dog training. His positive approach revolutionized the dog training field, especially puppy training.

SO helpful for crate training, potty training, and getting my dog on a consistent schedule. Information on puppy socialization (meeting 100 people of all ages, genders, and physical attributes), puppy milestones, and exposing your puppy to various sounds, textures, obstacles, moving objects, etc. Also helpful for some basic commands such as sit, down, puppy push-ups, stay, etc. I read this book and Good Owners, Great Dogs before I got my puppy and prior to starting puppy kindergarten. Dr. Dunbar is funny, has a great attitude about dogs and dog misbehavior (it is always the human's fault!), and though many parts of this book are repetitive, repetition aids retention. Highly recommended!

Ian Dunbar is one of the foremost dog behavior experts. His approach is based on science: what techniques for raising puppies have been proven effective. His approach is also designed for those of us who are utterly human: our timing is imperfect and we are not 100% consistent -- there are no "don't try this at home" warnings here. With decades of experience as a behaviorist and trainer and informed with a veterinary degree, Dunbar has distilled experience and scientific research into a book that is easy and entertaining. Raise your dog according to the book and you will create what he calls a "bomb-proof" dog. My last two dogs have been raised strictly according to the book. No damage was done to my house (chewing, house-soiling, etc.) by them in their puppy-hood and I have phased out the crate for one (but not the other because she demands to go in it when she wants to relax -- very ideal). Both dogs live with senior dogs that are trained to eliminate on toilet sheets. Despite this, neither dog pees indoors - not at home nor in doggy day care even though many other dogs do so. Please see his website dogstairdaily.com for additional resources. And by the way, he's serious when he cautions training doesn't end at puppy hood, especially not classical conditioning: always reward your dog for polite interactions with people and other dogs for the lifetime of the dog.

This book is fantastic - Dr. Dunbar is clear and concise with his instructions, and his techniques are strongly rooted in animal behavior science. I'm considering becoming a first time dog owner, and Dr. Dunbar's frankness and honesty were very appreciated, as were his very creative and surprisingly doable training techniques. I feel confident in my decision to get a puppy now, and his instructions/guides have given me a very good idea of what to expect and how to prepare.

In regards to the 1 and 2-star reviews complaining about his tone, which almost scared me away from this book- I suspect those users must have purchased an older version of Dunbar's book.

In the forward to his 2004 version (the hardback edition from Amazon), he credits his new editor with toning down his wording to presumably make it less inflammatory. This is very evident in the first 38 pages of the book, which are very positive and carefully worded when discussing "controversial" training topics.

However, Dunbar's infamously stern tone shines through after the first few chapters, but I honestly didn't mind it at all. He's firm because the welfare of your dog is in your hands and far too many owners don't appreciate that fact, hence the shelters full of poorly raised "problem" dogs. At no point does he cross the line and become some sort of raging dog-training Nazi, as some of the low-rating reviewers seem to suggest. Quite the contrary: I found him to be very professional, somewhat irreverent, very credible and quite clever in his training techniques.

Overall, this book is a fantastic read and I highly recommend you pick it up LONG before you even pick your puppy or your breeder, as Dunbar provides some excellent tips on what to look for at that stage.

Great book very helpful for that new puppy in your home, he believes in feeder ball toys not letting your dog inhale their food.I took on the challenge of two puppies, two months apart, and they are wonderful friends and were very easy to potty train following his advice. Buy the book you'll be glad you did!

Be sure to get this book before you bring your new puppy home, because your life and the puppies life will be way easier! It had been many years since I had a puppy, but this book made the process trouble-free!
We brought our eight-week old rescue puppy home, and within DAYS, he was potty trained and crate trained for sleeping through the night!
The first few days are critical though, so read the book and get the right supplies before you bring your little one home!
I recommend this book to everyone I know.

This is the best book I have ever read on training yourself and your puppy.A must read reference for every one anticipating getting a puppy. I read and studied this book for a full year before I found the right dog. If you want to raise a dog who is sociable, obedient, and a great lifetime companion, this is the right book. Everything is easy to understand and makes sense and helps you to understand the importance of reaching goals at the right stages of a puppy's life. I have used it to train two puppies and I am very confident in understanding how to raise a successful puppy. My oldest dog is one of the best dogs I have ever known. She is a Westie and they are known for being difficult to train and very stubborn. She is completely obedient and the smartest dog I have ever seen. My current puppy is learning quickly what is expected to do and what he can expect from me. I reread this book before the last puppy and it helped so much. If you are only going to get one book, get this one.

Best book ever for when you get a new puppy. This is my fourth new puppy, but I always reread this book because you forget how a puppy's mind works and how much guidance they need!
