Just that really. Any recommendations?

I seen a recommendation on here for the happy puppy handbook by Pippa mattinson. I ordered it off Amazon as we are hoping to get a puppy soon and wanted to be knowledgeable about what I was letting myself in for (we have been researching for a long time).

I have to say it is very informative. Helps you prepare for their arrival, bringing them home when you pick them up.

Not read it all yet as I only got it a couple of days ago, but the tone, the way it is written is very simple and uncomplicated. I am looking forward to putting my reading into practise soon.

Second vote for the Happy Puppy Handbook.

There's tons of great resources on this thread. Worth having a look through for relevant stuff.

In particular the Congratulations on Your New Puppy list of articles from the Dog Training Advice and Support FB group is brilliant.

I see from your other thread that you're looking at TTs. Would recommend pre-vaccination puppy training by Julie Hindle for a flying start (TT specialist). She's written another book on separation anxiety which TTs can suffer from if not correctly managed
