I do wish it had a little more information about training specific skills.

A must-read if you have kids and are thinking of getting a puppy. Especially the info on early warning signs of a dog being overwhelmed/uncomfortable and how to intervene. Her website has some good info, too.

We are getting a puppy, and this book was a great guide for housetraining, and teaching young children how to interact with puppies. I would buy this book.
