Summary

This audiobook took a holistic view of the training of a puppy. We began by discussing the idea of what is a pet and explored the possibility of having a puppy as a pet. Before moving ahead with this idea, few essentials were also mentioned for the listeners and prospective puppy owners.

Then came the stage of discussing essential aspects of training the puppy such as:

  • Leash training
  • Crate training
  • Clicker training
  • Potty training
  • Making puppy part of the family
  • The importance of socialization for dogs
  • Tackling aggressive dogs
  • Obedience commands
  • How to eliminate destructive behavior
  • Understanding their psychology
  • Understanding their physiology

This was a detailed discussion then culminated into the golden seven steps that are the take way of this audiobook.

  • Bringing your puppy home
  • Crate training
  • Potty training
  • Preventing food aggression
  • Socializing your puppy
  • Key commands of training
  • Leash training and coming

Some general tips regarding health, grooming, and nutrition were mentioned in brief at the end that will help the owner or trainer troubleshoot the problem.

But in the end, it must be stated with utmost of honesty and diligence that while this audiobook is an earnest effort on my part to help you train your puppy to the fullest, we must bear in mind that like humans the cute little guys known as the puppies also have feelings, and we must consider compassion, care, and love as the foremost guiding principles. Because like the breeds of the dogs that vary, the behavior and tendencies to react to situations also vary with every dog. Every dog has a different personality and psyche and cannot be treated alike. While these are standard ways and means to train your puppy, there is a need to apply prudence, logic, and care. There is definitely a method to this madness.

While the aim is to help you train your puppy, the hidden intent is that you can foster a lasting bond with your pet that can withstand tough times, sickness, and health.

Having mentioned the troubleshooting tips, it is now wise to discuss some tips to cement your bond with your puppy.

Amateur recording

Lots of repetition, very light on detail and extremely poor recording quality, you can hear typing in the background, you can hear the narrator shuffling pages, hear him getting lost in the text then actually repeating whole sections
