The book is ok a lot of the tricks are for bigger dogs not toy breeds. I seem to have found more useful information online. I think if you have no idea how to train a dog or never owned one before that this book could be helpful for the basics or could confuse you more it just depends. The steps for each trick are way to long and time consuming. I started training my Chihuahua the day I got her week one she would use the bathroom outside week two she was trained on puppy pads. I never had to put her in a cage at night or any of that. She sleeps in bed with me also. So before this Book I already taught her how to sit, stay, down, paw, other paw, come, and pound it, which is I put my fist down to hers and she will put hers on top of mine. Now I have owned one dog as a child and we never taught him anything so owning one as a adult it's like a new experience to me, because I'm the one reasonable for her. The only trick I was able to teach her from his book is to give a High five and in order to do that I had to change the steps. I really wish I could get her to do some of the other tricks like play dead, but the steps are to long she has a short attention span. Right now I'm hoping to find a book with shorter steps same results or I will have to find a way to adjust them myself. Also I have found that treat training doesn't work on my dog at all. She's now 11 months old and only weights 2 pounds 8 oz and gets full really fast.
