Puppy Training - Book cover

House soiling can be a huge challenge to deal with, and many owners feel at a total loss as to how to housetrain their puppies. After trying different approaches or making many common mistakes, patience starts running thin and despair often sets in. I love to offer solutions, and worked very hard to ensure this book is packed with lots of practical ones. My main priority, in writing it, was to make sure it's useful, simplistic and to the point.
