Pet Parents Love The Playbook
The Puppy Playbook is exactly what our new puppy parents need. As a breeder and as a dog parent, I highly recommend this book to all who are experienced puppy owners or novices. The easy to follow format and included checklists are an added bonus to a book that is so rich with practical, hands-on information and tips.
I recommend the Puppy Playbook over and over again!
As a breeder, it's important to me that all of my puppies go to their new homes with some foundational training and with owners who understand how to continue that training to create a well socialized and well behaved dog. The author if this book, Joanna Russell, is our chosen trainer and each of our owners gets this book in their go home packet. I've read countless training books by countless authors and I wholeheartedly recommend this one each and every time!
My family and I have learned a great deal from your book. It has helped us acclimate Remy to a solid routine and figure him out a little better. It's funny because my husband and I have raised several puppies in our years together, but we've learned so many new things. We are loving every minute with him!
This is a wonderful book for first-time puppy parent to a seasoned dog owner. You will love the common sense approach to do training. Has great extras - fun recipes too!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I learned so much and appreciated the structured weekly training schedules. It made my life with Ruby so much more enjoyable.
This book is easy to follow and feels like you have a trusted family member helping to raise your puppy. As a new puppy owner, it was very helpful to follow a structured approach. My puppy Remy is now on his way to being a well trained dog.
Usually it feels like homework when you are reading a puppy training book but The Puppy Playbook refreshingly fun. It's super interactive and action orientated. I particularly loved some of the fun touches like the recipes in the back
Thank you for a great introduction to training, socialization, and fun ways to get to know my puppy. It is an exceptional book.
As an athlete I really appreciated the specific training plans and learning objectives you are given each week. The book keeps you focused on specific training goals and keeps you from getting overwhelmed. It even provides you with the specific number of repetitions to do of each basic obedience behavior during your daily 5 minutes daily training exercises. If you love following a plan you will love this book
After the first two weeks with Jerry, we were overwhelmed and at a loss for how to control the chaos that have descended upon our apartment. Then came The Puppy Playbook. Fast forward two months and we've experienced a complete 180! The book gave us the structure that we needed along with very clear, simple instructions for how to navigate every bit of foundational training to nuanced roadblocks. We have it to thank for the incredible amount of joy we get from our relationship with Jerry.
We have really been enjoying the book and learning a lot. It has been extremely beneficial for us and for Finley.
We brought a puppy home during the pandemic and quickly found ourselves overwhelmed. All of the local puppy classes weren't running and we needed help quickly. Thankfully a friend recommended The Puppy Playbook. It is filled with a tremendous amount of information and is a fantastic resource. Our kids loved filling out the progress trackers and the puppy report card!
Prior to bringing home my puppy I had done a ton of research on how to raise a puppy. Socialization keep popping up over and over again. I was nervous about not doing a good job of socializing my puppy. A friend of mine had just brought home a puppy and was given The Puppy Playbook by her breeder. I was so excited to see the weekly socialization checklists and socialization report card that I immediately went out and purchased the book for myself. Now 4 weeks in to raising a puppy and things are going great. I've been checking off my weekly socialization tasks and have been taking my puppy out on lots the recommended field trips. Can't recommend this book enough!
As a new puppy owner I wanted to have the best possible start with my new puppy. On top of being easy to understand and follow, the information in this book is extensive and thorough. Thanks to The Puppy Playbook, we are not only off to a great start, but have a solid foundation to build upon as we move ahead.
Well written, smart, and easy to follow! This is an excellent guide for first time (or experienced puppy owners. Highly recommend!
