Synopsis by Alice Day
A new puppy can be charming at first. But very soon, the owner realizes that a certain amount of training is necessary unless chaos is to reign. In Bringing Up Puppy With Uncle Matty, professional dog trainer Matthew Margolis offers helpful advice and many suggestions on how to teach the new companion a few manners. He favors the "love, praise, and affection" technique, and begins with puppy basic training, which covers mouthing and how to deal with inevitable housebreaking errors. These and other common dog behavior problems should be addressed early to insure a harmonious relationship with man's best friend.
