A good start together

A good start together

The book is primarily aimed at breeders and people who, for other reasons, find themselves in the situation of raising a litter of puppies together with their bitch, as well as interested puppy buyers. It deals with the entire rearing of puppies from mating to around four months of age, whereby the boundaries between addressing the breeder and the future dog owner are fluid. The breeding focus here is not on specific breeds, but rather on special socialization and bond-building, which are essential for dogs that will later be used in animal-assisted therapy, but are also useful for family dogs.

The author is Dr. Beate Pottmann-Knapp, a psychotherapist who supports PSDeurope and is responsible for much of the content of the courses.

The book can only be ordered in German.
