Your own comprehensive, up-to-date manual on puppy/dog behaviour and care. Tailored to your business, giving the best advice to new puppy or dog clients.
For more details, see the Puppy Manual Product page.
PLEASE NOTE: The Puppy/Dog Manual may be purchased either as a PRINT-ONLY version, or as an EXTENDED LICENSE version that contains two separately formatted pdfs, allowing print and/or digital distribution. Although you can upgrade to the extended license later, it is more cost effective to do it right from the start.
The Puppy/Dog Manual
The Puppy Manual (we'll call it The Dog Manual if you mainly work with adult dogs) is a 100 page booklet in pdf form (please, if you print it out, use double sides!). It is a comprehensive, up-to-date manual that gives your clients all the information they need to know!
It contains sections on:
Reading puppy body language (and being able to detect early signs of anxiety or discomfort)
Socialisation (how this should be approached – not just ‘exposure’ but monitoring closely to ensure positive experiences)
Appropriate training methods (what is positive reinforcement, why we use it, and how to teach puppies)
Troubleshooting (common puppy behaviour problems and what to do about them)
It also discusses health care, crate training, toilet training, how to use a reward marker, basic training skills and setting puppies up for success.
The Puppy Manual is tailored to you and your business. We will start by adding your logo and business details and then the choice is yours. You can use your base document immediately as is, or read through and request changes. Teach a recall differently? We can change it. We can change spellings and local expressions for international audiences, we can change logos or pictures, remove or add more information.... we make it all yours. Then you are ready to share your Puppy Manual with your clients! (Hooray!)
PLEASE NOTE: This standard license only allows you to distribute to your client via printing out the document. If you would prefer to dstribute digitally, please purchase the extended license version.
