Pure Spirit is happy to offer you this FREE ebook: Before You Get Your Puppy by Dr. Ian Dunbar

Before You Get Your Puppy

This book is simply a MUST READ for anyone thinking of getting a puppy. To set yourself (and your puppy) up for success rather than failure, you mshould provide an errorless housetraining and chew toy-training set-up. This is very easy to do. Everything you need to know is described in this little book. Otherwise, if puppies are allowed to eliminate anywhere and chew anything in their kennel, that's what they'll continue to do when you bring them home. Most importantly, puppies must be socialized before they are three months old.  Preventing fearfulness and aggression is easy and fun when the puppy is under three months of age, whereas trying to resolve adult problems is difficult, time-consuming and not always successful.

Please download and email this book to every prospective and new puppy owner that you know in order to help spread the word that Puppyhood is the Time to Rescue Adult Shelter Dogs.

Note: This is a full copy of Dr. Dunbar's book. Depending on your connection speed, it may take a few moments to download.

Pure Spirit is happy to offer you this FREE ebook - After You Get Your Puppy by Dr. Ian Dunbar - with our compliments.

After You Get Your Puppy

This book covers common issues with puppies: housesoiling, destructive chewing, barking, separation anxiety, socialization, handling, puppy biting, bite-inhibition and preventing adolescent problems. Please download this book and email it to everyone that you know who has, or is thinking of acquiring, a new puppy.

Many of these recommendations apply to older dogs that enter your home as well. However, it is much easier to prevent issues through proper and early socialization and training than it is to try to resolve them in adolescent and adult dogs.

Note: This is a full copy of Dr. Dunbar's book. Depending on your connection speed, it may take a few moments to download.
