Welcome to the fun, fantastic, thrilling and challenging world of puppy rearing. From very personal experiences I can vouch for all of the above emotions plus a few more as well. You are in for what could be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Within this publication, I hope to offer you some simple, down to earth methods and techniques to help you along in your journey. Some ideas you may have heard of before, some you may not. Remember, there may be more than one answer or solution for any one particular question or problem that arises. Consideration has to be given to your puppy’s breed, personality, purpose of that particular breed, physical size and body structure when applying a method. I will give you as many options as I can in the various topics following this introduction section. We stick to “Mother Nature’s” methods of correction and praise when dealing with puppies or dogs since this is the language they will immediately understand, comprehend and respect. Mother Nature’s way as we have seen fit to term it, works for all breeds. The intensity of this method will vary from dog to dog. You will learn more about this unique method we have studied as we progress. Why Mother Nature’s method? Simply, there has been over the years as many methods developed by different trainers as there are fads from the Beatles of the 60’s to disco of the early 80’s. We are not saying that these methods don’t work but we choose to use the most natural of all.
