Pup Parenting: A Guide to Raising a Happy, Well-Trained Dog
by Lynn Lott, Jane Nelsen and Therry Jay

Published by Rodale

Read Excerpt


Amazon.comBarnes & NobleIndieBound

Many dog owners feel their dogs aren't just pets but beloved family members. For this reason, internationally renowned parenting experts Lynn Lott and Jane Nelsen, who have more than 2 million copies of their Positive Discipline books in print, have teamed up with acclaimed animal behaviorist Therry Jay to create a unique approach to "parenting" this important member of the family.

The result is Pup Parenting, the first parenting book for dogs that takes dog training to the next -- and ultimate -- level. This one-of-a-kind, comprehensive guide modifies effective child-rearing methods to work with the canine set. These methods represent an exciting breakthrough in dog discipline that can help make your dog a loving, responsive, and responsible family member.

Introducing their Five-Step Pup Parenting Plan, the authors offer new and fun solutions to age-old problems while presenting a more pup-friendly approach to living with and loving your dog. They'll also advise you on how to:

  • Choose a breed that fits with your family and lifestyle
  • Assess your dog's personality
  • Bring straying behavior problems smartly to heel

With a kind and firm approach that rejects both the alpha discipline method and the overindulgent reward-based system, Pup Parenting is the companion you can refer to for any dog, at any age, throughout his or her life. And it's not too late -- the authors know that you can teach an old dog new tricks.
