Puppy Training by Dr Ian Dunbar

Ian Dunbar has made available several books on puppy training Before you Get Your Puppy and After you Get your Puppy.  The books are available to download FREE.    Advice is also available on a very wide range of topics covering all ages and types of dogs and puppies.

The books are essential reading for all dog owners and particularly important for those getting a puppy for the first time.

BEFORE You Get Your Puppy describes the process of selecting a puppy and preparing for their first days at home, as well as the key developmental deadlines including socialisation and bite inhibition.  It also offers training advice on topics every owner needs to know about, like toilet training and chew toy training.

AFTER You Get Your Puppy offers proven, time-tested and practical knowledge to guide owners through all the early developmental stages from puppyhood to adolescence, including how to manage the critical socialisation window between 8 and 12 weeks and the importance of learning bite inhibition before 22 weeks of age. 

Dr Ian Dunbar DVM Ph D is a renowned veterinarian, veterinary behaviourist, author and lecturer on canine behaviour delivers seminars around the world. He founded the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (USA) in 1993 and its presence and membership has since spread to more than 26 countries worldwide, including Australia and New Zealand. Dunbar is credited with launching what is now commonly regarded as the modern era in dog training, based on training, socialising and handling puppies before 6 months of age to prevent behavioural problems in later life.  He has been out to New Zealand several times and is expected out again in 2013.

Dr Dunbar receives no financial benefit from the electronic distribution of his free downloads.  However you can to purchase a hard copy if you wish.
