Two articles that surfaced in 2018 was put out by the FDA about grain-free fed foods and the dangers. Prior to the FDA concern, it was thought that grain-free was "WAY" better for dogs... now 5 years after its been on the market its the known cause of heart problems. The high protein in grain-free food is also causing liver failure. Our caution is always to wait for new "ideas" to be tested for 10 years to see if its really a good idea or has drastic ramifications.

Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and Well-Behaved Dog 

How to raise the perfect puppy

A revolution for dogs: Very few dog trainers have not been influenced by Dr. Ian Dunbar’s dog-friendly philosophy. In the 1970s, Dr. Ian Dunbar sparked a dramatic shift in puppy training ― away from leash corrections and drill-sergeant adult dog training classes based on competitive obedience and toward a positive approach using toys, treats, and games as rewards for teaching basic manners, preventing behavior problems, and modifying temperament. Before Dr. Dunbar there were no classes for puppy training, very few family dog classes, and not much fun in dog training. His positive approach revolutionized the dog training field, especially puppy training.

Raising a great dog: Now, in Before and After Getting Your Puppy, Dr. Ian Dunbar combines his two popular puppy training manuals into one indexed, value-priced hardcover dog training book. In clear steps, with helpful photos and easy-to-follow puppy training milestones, he presents a structured yet playful and humorous plan for raising a wonderful dog. Dr. Dunbar’s guide is based around six developmental milestones:

  • Your doggy education
  • Evaluating puppy’s progress
  • Errorless housetraining and chewtoy-training
  • Socialization with People
  • Learning bite inhibition
  • The world at large

Fans of The Art of Raising a Puppy, Training the Best Dog Ever, or Zak George’s Dog Training Revolution, will love Ian Dunbar’s Before and After Getting Your Puppy.
