This book addresses the unique problems than may come along with a “second-hand” dog, whether you found them on the street or adopted them from a shelter.
What I Liked
- This book was a light, quick read. It wasn’t overly detailed like some dog training books are.
- This book was really positive. I read it when I was struggling a lot with my dog, so this came at a great time.
- Instructions (if any) were simple and easy to understand. Plus, there were wonderful little illustrations throughout the book.
- I love that this book is geared specifically for “second-hand” dogs, since a lot of advice I find is for people who raised their dogs from puppies. I got my dog when she was already two years old, so I can’t control her past. I can only control her future.
What I Didn’t Like
- This book seems like it would be a great read for a child getting a new dog, but did not provide as many details or depth as I would have liked. It wasn’t overly helpful, but it was positive enough to give me the oomph to try harder training my dog.
If you need a quick read to pull you out of being frustrated with your dog, this book is for you.
