John Ross and Barbara McKinney, the country’s foremost dog-training experts, reveal the lifelong benefits of early training in this definitive guide devoted exclusively to the trials and triumphs of puppy rearing. Puppy Preschool rewrites the rules on raising a great dog. Whereas other training books begin their programs when the puppy has already reached four months of age or more, Puppy Preschool begins educating and shaping behavior right from the time the puppy is brought into your home. Using revolutionary but positive and loving techniques that may surprise you, Ross and McKinney provide a much-needed head start on good behavior. They offer essential training rules that will be useful throughout your puppy’s formative education, including information on:

* Early leash and collar procedures
* Housebreaking
* Preventing unwanted chewing, barking, and biting
* Health and grooming tips
* Essential puppy-training equipment and safe, fun toys
* The best ways for small children to interact with puppies

     Puppy Preschool is the only book you will need to get you and your new puppy started on a great life together.

Praise for Puppy Preschool, Revised Edition

“If everyone who thought of getting a dog would read this book first, there would probably be fewer dogs surrendered to or euthanized in animal shelters.... Puppy Preschool is packed with practical, thought-provoking advice, particularly for the first-time dog owner. Repeat owners will find many jewels of wisdom as well. Highly recommended.”--Library Journal
