I bought my first copy back in the 1980's when I bought my first Aussie, and I have sent home a copy with each puppy I have raised over the past 20 years. It gives the owners a good idea of how I raise my "babies", and what they need to have ready before the puppy comes home to them. It also tells them how to make a smooth transition for the puppy from my home to theirs. It's an easy read, good basic information, and lets everyone get off to a good start. I love this book!
