Summary

They are rambunctious, don't listen, make a mess,destroy your belongings, and never clean up after themselves. No, not children-puppies!

Now they've gathered all the information they've learned over the years and written the ultimate guide to bringing your puppy up right.

In Puppy Parenting, Jan and Gail guide you through all the developmental and behavioral stages of your puppy's first year:

Bringing baby home -- 1 to 4 months: getting his shots, learning his language, and dealing with separation anxiety, teething, and grooming The brat zone-5 to 7 months: sending him to school, deciding whether or not to neuter, keeping him safe, socializing him, and determining the right diet for him Young adult -- 8 to 12 months: dealing with his teenage months, traveling with him, learning games that are fun to play and will help with his development

Puppy Patenting contains everything a parent needs to know:

Choosing the right breed for your personality and lifestyle Finding a reputable breeder or picking the perfect pound pup Preparing your home for the new arrival: buying everything you need (and nothing you don't), puppyproofing your home, and getting your family ready Housebreaking: crate, paper, and tether training -- and what to do when mistakes happen Training techniques: how to get your pup to listen -- and what to do when he doesn't Keeping puppy healthy -- and when to call a vet

Complete with all the information you need to make it through the first year, Puppy Patenting is every proud puppy parent's bible.

Library Journal Review

Greye and Smith are the cofounders of Kritter Sitters, a Beverly Hills-based dog-training business. But new puppy owners anticipating gossipy tidbits about the authors' exclusive and glamorous 90210 clientele will be disappointed. Anecdotes are sparse and rendered anonymously. Still, the authors offer solid information on selecting and raising a puppy, with the requisite warnings about pet store dogs and puppy mills. Chapters are organized by puppy developmental stages, with a concluding chapter of dog resources. There is some breed-specific material, too. The attitude recommended toward all dogs is indulgent, loving, and consistent. However, readers looking for in-depth behavioral insights will do better with Judith Halliburton's Raising Rover (LJ 6/15/96), and libraries seeking a comprehensive dog-care book should examine Dogs: The Ultimate Care Guide, edited by Matthew Hoffman (Rodale, 1998).
