The Reviews

This book breaks things down in a very organized manner. There are also helpful safety tips throughout which I think is something that's often left out of training books. I especially loved that the book touched on what to do with city dogs—I don't have a spacious home or a big backyard as a New Yorker, and the fact that the author took this into consideration made this book even more special. Can't recommend this enough. I've purchased a book for my parents who are thinking of getting a new pup, too!

I got two books, one to keep and one to give away with my foster pup. so far it works! I’m a dog foster so I like to teach them more than to potty outside or on a pad. have one that is a lil more hard headed than others. But we are now sitting, shaking and speaking on command.

My daughter is 7 and is able to read this book and understand the concepts with ease. She is feverishly attempting to train our terrier. The only thing I haven’t seen her do is to work on one thing before moving on to the next. She also tends to use too many treats which upsets the tummy. Perhaps she overlooked that part in the book. Either way, both she and the dog are having tons of fun!

Great for my 7 & 12 year old boys who are training a new puppy. Honestly as an I adult I like the ease of this book and the directions too. A must for kids training a dog!

Well I think the content of the book is okay but the book is literally falling apart and the pages are coming out. The book construction is terrible, so the book is really hard to read.

I'm so glad I got this book it just refreshes my mind. I haven't had a dog around in a while and I will be getting a puppy soon but after reading makes me feel a little more confident.

Cute book but pages are falling out of the binding.

purchased as gift. My great-niece recently got a new puppy and she asked to this book for Christmas. She found this book easy to read and helpful with training her dog.

My great nephews and niece justgot a goldendoodle puppy. They have been absorbed in the training info in this book

This book is a fun step-by-step guide to helping kids train dogs. Summer is here and it is fun helping the kiddos use the steps to teach the dog new tricks. It is also a fun way to sneak in summer reading without them realizing it. Double win!

Bought for my 11 year old nephew. Seems easy and simple to understand. Even has housebreaking info and games to play with your dog!

Great book to teach kids about how to care for and prepare for a puppy, many helpful hints and this has been a great help for our 10 year old

Cute fun book. Got for new puppy owner's kids so they could feel like they were part of training before the puppy was old enough to go to classes and they could do some of the early lessons and also understand what they were doing in class as well.

This is a great book to help a child learn how to train their puppy. We've been trying several of the techniques with our new puppy. He is only 3 months old but is learning several basic commands already.

My granddaughters love this book! They just got a new puppy and they have their parents read it every night.

Love these! I was looked for comfy PJs for my bridal party and these were the best!! We will wear them over and over!

Exactly what I wanted in a pajama set! Very lightweight, I’m a super hot sleeper & they are perfect. They seem like pretty high quality fabric too. I am 5’9” & 165 pounds & the large is a perfect fit. A little roomy but not falling off. I’ve worn them every night for a week now & already washed them twice & they washed very well.I’m probably going to buy another pair to have as a back up. Highly recommend.

I bought these pajamas in two colors for after my lumpectomy and lymph node biopsy and I have lived in them for two weeks now. This top is sooooo comfortable and fits just right for post surgery. If it were normal pajamas and I was going more for looks I might have ordered a size down, but for a post surgery top this top is PERFECT. It is so incredibly soft and has buttons to help with getting in on/off post surgery, but it is also loose and stretchy and can be pretty easily taken off without the buttons as well. I also like that it’s a little baggier because the underarm doesn’t rub on my incision. I haven’t worn the bottoms yet only because it’s winter and too cold for shorts!

One of my favorite pjs/lounge wear. Super soft and so cute. Love the elestic on the shorts. The front bottons are functional and can be used for breastfeeding mamas. I'm 5'2" and the Medium fit me loosely and comfortably.

Recovering from major reconstruction shoulder surgery and needed the button up tops and easy pull on bottoms. This set fit perfectly, the material is so soft and just super comfy! I’ve already bought 2 other sets from this brand. Definitely worth the money!

I am 5’4” 185lbs and I got a medium according to the reviews and sizing chart. I like the way it fits which it snug enough without being too exact. If I would’ve gotten a large, the bottoms would’ve fallen off and the top may have hung lower in the chest. The material is very soft and doesn’t feel cheap. I washed once in warm water and tumble dry on high heat and there was no fading of the colors or shrinking.

I am 5’7 and about 140 lbs and ordered a Small. I love these pajamas! I got them in two different colors and want even more. I was tired of wearing old high school t-shirts to bed and wanted something a bit more “adult.” The material is super soft, stretchy, light, and perfect for hotter weather. The shorts wear high on the hips and the shirt is a bit longer. As you can see, the slit in the side of the shorts goes high, so I wouldn’t go out of the house in them. I would definitely buy more pairs, especially since they were on “flash sale” when I got them!

comfy and cute! Pregnant and weigh 160 right now. Got these to be able to breastfeed easily. I have a couple months growing room yet because the material is stretchy and comfy. I love them and will love them even when I’m not pregnant!

Bought multiple packs to try at Disneyland this spring. First day I loaded this one up with 2-liters of water, snacks, camcorder equipment, light jacket, GoPro equipment. Room to spare but not too bulky. Wanted to capture every moment with my grand-daughters and have space for those special souvenirs that just "had to be bought now".With the additional straps this snugged down great so taking the pack on and off for each ride/attraction was simple.It was dragged, dropped, pulled on, snagged, smashed, and jerked and held up like new. I loved the waterproof pocket on the inside which though designed to store we stuff, was a lifesaver for protecting sensitive items during rides that tend to splash a lot of water all over the rider :-)I did not even try the other packs and used this one the entire week. When done it folded up into its special self-contained pouch and went back into my suitcase taking up very little space.A great pack that will become a standard day pack going forward. Absolutely love it.

*Update* Just had to come back & say more about this bag after owning (abusing) it for a year. Bought some elastic cord to thread through the loops on the front...even more storage! Just packed my family of 4 overnight in this gem. Pool gear, PJs, toiletries, fresh clothes & all. Filled to the brim & holding tight as ever. Never a popped zipper or even a stray thread that I can tell. Been through the washer multiple times. The wet pocket has been a lifesaver for wet stuff, but bc of its location against the wearer's back, also for cash or other valuables.Original review: Owned for 3 mos now & used it for everything from a waterpark with the family to an airplane carryon, & now a hiking trip through the western US. This is the best day pack I have ever owned, even over a couple other well-known & far more expensive brands. I have folded & unfolded it repeatedly, filled it to capacity, tugged on all the straps, hung it while heavy from the top loop...everything is sturdy & well-made. Because it's foldable, it does not have any support or shape of its own, which means no padding in the cargo area. I have learned to be aware how I pack so lumpy items dont poke me in the back while I'm wearing it, but in all I could not be happier with this bag. Will be buying a few for gifts!

When I got this I took one look and thought, this looks really small for 40L. So I went back to the amazon page to get the dimensions, and when I calculated the volume it came out to 25L (1520 cubic inches). I am not sure what they think they are accomplishing by pumping up the volume numbers. The quality of the bag seems OK, the padding on the straps is a little skimpy compared to some of the other higher end bags I own (REI, Kelty), but it is also a heck of a lot cheaper price-wise. I will fill it up to see how much it holds before I send it back, but this wasn't what I was looking for.

Cons:-Definitely not true-to-color-Padding non-existsnt-May have difficulty standing up to being packed with heavy-ish items frequently over timePros:-Very fair price point-Compact-Great for light packing-Enough pockets that items are easy to organize and find but not so many that you lose your mind trying to remember where you put your stuff.My husband and I hike a lot with our two young kids. Until recently, I had been using an old patrol bag or the pockets allotted in our Deuter Kid Comfort to carry items on the trail - but our youngest has outgrown his Deuter and I honestly can’t stand the insane amount of pockets in my husband’s Marmot bag.We had to fly across the country for a family wedding and I figured this cheap backpack would be a good purchase for the trip and our future outdoor endeavors.I was right and wrong.Initially really disappointed by the color (was going for something a little more feminine - but not HEY, FLORAL PATTERN HERE!), I was happy to see how big the bag was and that my two laptops, one of those u-shaped travel pillows, and all of my personal necessities could fit in this bag with room to spare. The mesh side pockets are deep and held my water bottle REALLY well. I could bend over and help a kid re-tie a shoe or pick something up off the floor and it didn’t budge. That’s a major plus. That being said, the shoulder straps become pretty uncomfortable and feel flimsy if you have heavier items like laptops packed into the bag. After about an hour of walking around the airport, I wished I had dealt with the marmot instead.For the price, I can’t really complain about the lack of padding. I know this will be a great pack for things like sweatshirts and low-weight items for short hikes, but will definitely be investing in something a little more back and shoulder friendly for our longer ventures out and about.

I really liked this book. It has all training aspects clearly mentioned and with illustrations so keeps the child engaged and interested. My kid really tried as the book said. Worked in some aspects some he still needs to work on. The most ideal was the chart of potty and walking. It was great. Helped keep my puppy and kid on a schedule

This is a wonderful book on how to train your new friend and/or someone else that has a new edition to their family. This book is very organized in the steps that are taken and for any living setting you are in (rural, urban etc.) The book is worded in language for any age to understand. The examples of methods of training are clear and detailed so this would be an excellent aid if a certain incidence would occur in our training processes. The illustrations and safety tips (shaded in yellow so you can stop them right away), makes this book a pleasure and exciting in the training of your best friend!

I got two books, one to keep and one to give away with my foster pup. so far it works! I’m a dog foster so I like to teach them more than to potty outside or on a pad. have one that is a lil more hard headed than others. But we are now sitting, shaking and speaking on command.
