Welcome! I was excited to receive a copy of “Everything You Need to Know About House Training Puppies and Adult Dogs” in exchange for a fair and honest review. Not only that, but it’s all part of a fun giveaway event called the Sizzling Winter Blog Hop & Treasure Hunt!



I found “Everything You Need to Know About House Training Puppies and Adult Dogs” a simple, straight-forward and informative read. From starting out with a puppy to correcting behaviors in adult dogs, Lori Verni-Fogarsi provides easy, positive instruction for house training dogs.  

Not only is it full of valuable, knowledgeable information for training your dog, but also how to stay in the right mindset yourself. I’m happy that this book stresses that training a dog isn’t all about the dog.  You have to put in work, too for your dog to be successful.

Numerous problems are addressed and followed up with solutions to make yours and your dog’s lives easier. Solutions for indoor accidents, accidents away from home, submissive/excitement urination and more are addressed. I will be using Lori’s advice regarding the excitement urinations for my Delia. This is an infrequent behavior for Delia, but very embarrassing when it does happen. Not only has that, but not too pleasant our poor friends’ shoes. 

Lori also addresses rescue and senior dogs. Too many seniors and rescues are abandoned due to their potty problems. With patience, love and training Lori clearly and positively addresses these in this book. The section entitled “House Training and the Rescued Dog” is one I wish all potential adopters could read. 

The sample schedules and housebreaking chart included are great tools for setting a schedule for your dog’s elimination and establishing a routine for not only your dog, but for you as well. 

I highly recommend “Everything You Need to Know About House Training Puppies and Adult Dogs” for anyone attempting to house train a dog and anyone who may have a dog with potty issues.
