This concise, easy-to-use reference is one of Howell Book House's top-selling titles, with more than 100,000 copies in lifetime sales. Despite its age (15 years) and its dated packaging, the book continues to sell steadily. Readers-and dogs-respond to Jack Volhard's proven training techniques and his fast, efficient approach, as also evidenced by the success of his book Dog Training For Dummies, now in its second edition. For many dog owners, 100 or so pages of information about the basics of good canine behavior is all they need. The second edition of What All Good Dogs Should Know will maintain the value price and quick-and-dirty format. To bring the book up-to-date, we will refresh the packaging and add content on canine personality testing, the "Leave It" command, and special issues regarding shelter and rescue dogs, including shyness and insecurity. It will be released just in time for new spring puppies and summer training. Jack Volhard has a stellar reputation in the dog training community and the book has broad appeal, so there will be continuing opportunities for publicity.
