Each book features all new full-color photography and a 30-minute training DVD with tips from expert dog trainer Peggy Moran. Unlike typical dog training DVDs with a “one-size-fits-all” approach, Your Happy Healthy Pet videos include training methods that are designed specifically for medium-sized dogs, plus bonus material that is breed-specific. These fully-revised all-encompassing guides feature everything new dog owners need to know including:

  • preparing for a new pup
  • the training approach
  • practical commands like heeling and staying
  • correcting inappropriate behaviors like jumping up and chewing
  • fun tricks like shaking and rolling over
  • geriatric care

Whether you’re a proud new dog owner, or simply trying to teach an old dog new tricks, Your Happy Healthy Pet Guides are here to help!
