Great for First-time Dog Owners

What did you love best about Dogs?

This was a great book to listen to for many reasons while my family decided whether to get a dog or a cat.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

His performance has an even pace and a soothing tone.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Dogs?

I feel that the sections regarding the traits of the different dog breeds was most helpful to me. I have referred back to this a few times, since this is such a hard decision.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to anyone that is gearing up to purchase a dog. The information will help you realize things that you may have overlooked.

Learn to raise a well trained, loving pup

I bought this book shortly after adopting two small pups. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and they were beginning to take over my house (yikes!). This book taught me how to dog proof my home, great training techniques that have really paid off and fun exercise games to help them spend some of their endless energy. This book has really brought balance into my home and my pups are well on their way to being the amazing dogs I know they are. They listen better, have stopped chewing on everything and are generally well-behaved. This is a great book for new puppy parents or those looking to add a furry companion to their family.

A neat overview of bringing a dog into your life.

'Dogs' is a helpful introduction to choosing the right dog for your situation/family and guiding it through the issues of puppyhood into life as a balanced family pet. There is a wealth of sound, beginner-level, insight and information here, and I would recommend this to anyone new to dogs or wishing to 'start from scratch', so to speak.

I run a pet services business that mainly focuses on dogs, and I really like the positive approach of this book. It takes the perspective of reward based training and assumes that time is freely available to work with your puppy - otherwise you wouldn't have brought a dog into your life, right? I think this is a valuable lesson in and of itself, as most of the doggie issues we see are down to people not investing enough time in their puppies.

Training and play are considered in some detail and the emphasis given to play is refreshing and - if taken on board - life enhancing for both dog and human.

While not comprehensive, I loved the taster session at the beginning, looking at the different popular breeds of dog and their traits, and despite many breeds not being mentioned, the author does provide information about where to look on the web for full breed lists.

I also champion the references to nutrition that suggest choosing good quality feed for your dog, as this will benefit their health, weight, vitality and longevity. Great advice for all.

The Audio is well narrated by Joshua Mackey, in a clear and enthusiastic style, which helps both understanding and attention, though I think this is probably at least a 2-session listen.

Everything you Need to Know About Dogs!

This book on dogs is really a must-read for anyone who has or is considering getting a puppy or dog.

It contained many new ideas and tips that I had not previously encountered and tackles everything you can think of when it comes to knowing more about being a dog owner.

You are taken right through the process, from things to think about before you choose a breed and preparing your home, right through to diet and training tips.

For me, the best part was where the author focused on puppies and their training, sleep and toilet. It was a wealth of valuable info and certainly gave me some new things to consider.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough if you are planning, or have become a dog-owner. This guide will definitely come in handy!
