Cesar Millan's Guide to Bringing Home a Shelter Dog covers the first few days of setting up your relationship with a dog, particularly one brought from a shelter who might have known inconsistency, maybe abuse, you never know.
It's a good guide, but keep in mind it goes by Millan's theory of doing all that you can do to be the alpha dog in the relationship. It promotes the 50-25-25 ratio that he goes by: 50% exercise, 25% discipline, and 25% affection, in that order. It's not about coddling, and always about remembering that your dog is a dog and doesn't care if it's wearing leather or rhinestones. And it's about keeping up the discipline bonding approach with obedience school training for both you and your dog/pup.
If you're looking for a more affection/bond-based approach to living with your new companion, I suggest looking into Jennifer Arnold's works that you can find here on Audible.
And no matter what... remember shelter dogs when you're looking for that special buddy to share your life with!
