It would be mostly helpful for people who have never had puppies but since I've had dogs most of my life, I was hoping to find more information specifically for my beagle. I did, however, find out her stubbornness and game playing is normal for her breed. It was well written and full of humor. I would recommend it for someone who has never had a dog or puppy.
We got this book when we took an interest in adopting a beagle/terrier mix from a local rescue group. I found the book enjoyable to read and easy to follow. I was very impressed when the rescue people started giving me pieces of advice and it was the very same advice given in the book. It really made me feel smart and well informed.
