A well organised guide to raising a puppy by people who clearly know puppies well and lovingly. As useful for the regular breeder/buyer of puppies as it is for the first-timer, with lots of practical points and reminders, well expressed and repeated throughout the book, and avoiding soppy language and excessive emotionalism. Well done.

a deserved classic
This is an enormously informative and insightful book for people who want to *know* their dogs. Thorough, detailed and full of wisdom. You can't go wrong with this one. And of course it's very practical.
