The Puppy Manual prides itself on providing up-to-date advice to your clients - so every couple of years we release an official update!


The 2019 edit also contains an essential addition - a new chapter on Kids and Dogs! This includes: 

  • Setting house-rules to keep kids and dogs safe and happy 

  • When and how to greet an unfamiliar dog

  • Be a Tree for kids

The Puppy Manual undergoes constant review, as changes in our knowledge progress. Information comes from publications, conferences and seminars, as well as through collaboration with the knowledgable trainers and veterinarians who review and edit their own copies of the document. The number of smaller edits and corrections builds up over time, so you'll find the number of these will vary depending how long ago you bought your Puppy Manual. There has been a new, cleaner look since mid-2018, and the 2019 update brushes up further on this.


As your  Puppy Manual is tailored to you, all your previous changes and edits will be transferred to your updated Puppy Manual. When you receive your update, you'll also have the opportunity to review your document and make further edits as well. 

The 2019 Puppy Manual Update is AUD$125, for the document provided to your business as a pdf file. The copyright permissions will remain the same, depending on whether you have purchased the Standard or Extended License. Anyone who upgrades to the Extended License in 2019 will receive the 2019 Update at no additional cost!

Thank you for visiting my website! I am currently on maternity leave. Don't worry -  I am still able to provide Puppy Manuals and other puppy school support materials, but it just may take me a few days to reply to your email.
