Puppy brain : how our dogs learn, think, and love / Kerry Nichols.

Nichols, Kerry, (author.).


"Full of actionable guidance, Puppy Brain will show you how to raise a happy, healthy, well-behaved, and emotionally resilient pet. Through years of research on puppy brain development and intentional breeding practices, Kerry Nichols, the founder of Nicholberry Goldens, opens a whole new world of communication between you and your dog. Kerry has developed a system of raising dogs that actively stimulates her puppies' neurological systems, laying the foundation for emotional bounce back and creating connections in the brain that produce life-long problem solving skills. In this book, Kerry teaches you how to apply those principles at home with your dog. With guidance about every step of pet ownership, from bringing your new dog home to raising them through adolescence and old age, Puppy Brain uses the latest research to help you understand what your pet needs, and how to stop poor behaviors in their tracks. She likes to say, "While I can't raise a puppy for everyone, I can help everyone raise a puppy." With irresistible photos, clear guidance, and engaging humor, Puppy Brain shows you how your dog's mind works, and how to use that to your advantage. While this book grows out of Kerry's viral social media content (@NicholberryGoldens on Instagram and TikTok), its chapters go even further, delving more deeply into fascinating dog science and providing her readers with in-depth answers to years of questions from her followers and "forever families." It is a perfect gift for dog lovers and anyone looking for an accessible resource for training their beloved dogs"-- Provided by publisher.
