“An outstanding, detailed guide to raising a Goldendoodle puppy & living with it in your forever home for many happy years. Though I have had many dogs (some rated Champion Companion Dogs by AKC) I learned a great tip yesterday! I have now tweaked my "Speak & Shush" process for my 5 year old Google who just started barking at people coming to the front door. Google & I are very glad to have this reference book on our shelf!” GALE W. SHERMAN, USA
