Social, Civil, and Savvy: a new non-fiction book

So I’ve been working very hard, and I’ve dropped a few hints, and I’m finally ready to reveal it: I have a new training and behavior book coming out soon!

(Animal training and behavior is my day job, when I’m not letting my imaginary friends irritate each other for fun and profit.)

Social, Civil, and Savvy: Training & Socializing Puppies to Become the Best Possible Dogs

Social, Civil, and Savvy is specifically about socialization and life preparation for puppies, with lots of explanation and step-by-step instruction, and also about familiarization for older dogs who did not have a great socialization period in their puppyhoods.

Does that make it a sequel to Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out? But puppyhood and socialization come before adulthood and behavior modification, so maybe it’s a prequel?

Anyway, it will be available at Clicker Expo in late March, and then it will release everywhere (ebook and paperback) in April. Make sure to sign up on my training/behavior list for pre-order options and more release details.

Keep an eye open for some sneak peeking in the near future!

I’m learning so much! You are doing a great job of tapping into the common myths and misconceptions that lay people have…. It’s like you’re in my head…. What a great way to approach training and life in general.
