Healthy Puppy Book

puppy-book-cover“Raising a Behaviorally Healthy Puppy” provides a Five Step Guide to create healthy behaviors, with detailed plans for housetraining, crate training, introducing puppy to resident pets, managing chewing and puppy biting, preventing “chaos at the door” through controlled greetings, teaching basic “manners” (sit, down, come, give, walk nicely) using methods puppies can easily understand, and socialization. 

Veterinarians and groomers will especially appreciate the chapter on teaching puppies to enjoy handling and mild restraint.  Everyone will appreciate the common sense chapter about social roles and relationships that exposes the “dominance” myths and substitutes common sense instructions for enjoyable, daily interactions that build on puppies’ inherent willingness to cooperate and avoid conflict.

Inside you’ll find Drs. Hetts and Estep unique 5 Step Positive Proaction Plan for dealing with major puppy issues from housetraining to getting along with other pets. In an easy to read format you’ll learn:

• How to evaluate your puppy’s behavioral health
• How to best socialize your puppy
• How to meet your puppy’s behavioral needs
• Alternatives to “discipline” and saying “NO” over and over
• What’s important and what’s not when it comes to “dominance”
• A step by step guide to crate training and MUCH MORE!

Suitable both for puppy parents and for trainers, veterinarians, and shelters to distribute in their puppy classes. Call or email us for large quantity pricing discounts.
