Review of the Zen Method of Raising a Puppy

by Gordon Fontaine

A new puppy owner has no time to pour over a small-print text on the science of dog-rearing. Gordon Fontaine, owner of Zen Dog Training, gets this.

It’s as if he knows that the new “dog parent” is standing in front of their peeing, slipper-chewing pup, a little baffled, thinking “what have I done?” But if the owner has Fontaine’s book in hand, he or she can take the deep yoga breath (as he frequently suggests here) and get to work. Fun work.

Fontaine’s how-to’s are easy to follow, written conversationally and easy-to-see large print. Above all, they are entertaining. Each set of steps is also relevant for training adult dogs adopted from rescue groups. They are illustrated with some of the most endearing photos I have ever seen. When the reader is done (having dog-eared copious pages), he or she will be utterly reassured that the challenges of a new pooch in the house are not only surmountable, but a joy to tackle head-on.
