Professional reviews

"The Cummings School provides a comprehensive guide to choosing and raising a healthy, happy puppy. Such a well-researched manual, however, doesn't succeed in the audiobook format. One problem is narrator James Boles, who reads painfully slowly and with a lack of affect. Boles's reading style will turn off even the most die-hard dog-lovers. PUPPY'S FIRST STEPS is really a textbook--to be referenced from the point of choosing a puppy through the many years of a dog's development. But without chapter titles or even track numbers on the discs or case, it's nearly impossible to find specific information on topics as they arise. While every dog-owner will benefit from this book, I recommend seeking it out in print. J.T. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
