MODERN DOG PARENTING
Raising Your Dog or Puppy to be a Loving Member of Your Family
By Sarah Hodgson
"A must-read for a family who's getting their first dog. Lots of practical information on positive methods of training."—Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human and Animals in Translation "Modern Dog Parenting is groundbreaking, effective, compassionate, and fun. The overriding message? Learning shouldn’t be scary. It can be edutainment! Dogs look to us to teach, not bully them. It’s more than okay to love a dog like a child and view yourself as their parent—I do—everyone should! I’m excited to find another voice that inspires love, consideration, and respect for pets and their people."—Dr. Marty Becker, "America's Veterinarian", New York Times bestselling author, and syndicated pet columnist
Sarah Hodgson is an accredited dog trainer with close to 30 years of experience who is well known for the “For Dummies” books on training. Her upcoming book, MODERN DOG PARENTING: Raising Your Dog or Puppy to Be a Loving Member of Your Family (St. Martin’s Griffin; On-Sale September 6) is a fun and accessible manual for all dog parents who want to train their dog with a focus on parenting, rather than dominating.
Dogs are very similar to humans in many ways – they are able to learn up to 250 words, count up to 5, and imitate human behaviors –so it make sense to treat these intelligent creatures a bit more like children. Hodgson’s family-oriented training methods and gentle style are all the rage right now, with many owners preferring to view their pet as a member of the family. In the vein of The Art of Raising a Puppy, she offers tips on everyday training topics, from choosing the right dog for your lifestyle to living with the pooch day by day. Sarah Hodgson rejects dominance-based training and gets astonishing results with a blend of wit, compassion, energy and proven skills. She communicates instructions clearly, directs behavior compassionately, and rewards success lavishly. Her students—both two- and four-legged—feel valued, confident, connected, and smart. She’s the dog mommy everyone wishes they had.
Sarah Hodgson has worked with several celebrity clients, including Chevy Chase, Katie Couric, Glenn Close, and Susan Sarandon, and her platform only continues to grow. She is a weekly HuffPo blogger and has appeared as a guest expert on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, The Animal Planet and more.
Including a foreword by bestselling author and well-known dog behaviorist Stanley Coren, MODERN DOG PARENTING will show readers that yes, you can love your dog and live with him too.

Praise for Modern Dog Parenting
"A must-read for a family who's getting their first dog. Lots of practical information on positive methods of training."
—Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human and Animals in Translation "Modern Dog Parenting is groundbreaking, effective, compassionate, and fun. The overriding message? Learning shouldn’t be scary. It can be edutainment! Dogs look to us to teach, not bully them. It’s more than okay to love a dog like a child and view yourself as their parent—I do—everyone should! I’m excited to find another voice that inspires love, consideration, and respect for pets and their people." —Dr. Marty Becker, "America's Veterinarian", New York Times bestselling author, and syndicated pet columnist "Sarah Hodgson has written a wonderful primer for new dog or puppy owners. The book will also help current dog owners appreciate and understand their dog better and interact most favorably with their furry friend. Think Dogs 101 and you’re right on track with what this book will mean to those who strive for a better relationship with their dog and want to create a friend for life. I give it two paws up!"
—Dr. Nicholas H. Dodman, Director of the Animal Behavior Clinic at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine and author of Pets on the Couch "A must-read for all dog parents, whether first timers or seasoned. It is a valuable resource for veterinarians as well, many of whom, sometimes myself included, fall short when it comes to solving our patient’s behavior problems. This book has already been a big help to me with my 'not always so perfect' canine crew. Thank you Sarah!"
—Jeff Werber, DVM, nationally-recognized TV and radio host and Veterinarian to the Stars
