15 THE "HOLD UP" AND THANK YOU
Chapter 15 was a challenge to compose, but turned out to be just what my readers needed. I offer various ways to approach
the most difficult part of owning and loving your dog.
I am thankful for responsible breeders who share my book information with adoptive families. Some have made my book part of
their puppy take-home package; others have posted my book picture on their websites, Facebook and Instagram pages.
I'm told my book saves tons of telephone Q&A time because I equip my readers with the tools needed to raise their
pup with ease.
Upon request, I customize my introductory note, drawing attention to whatever subjects a breeder wishes to concentrate
on. I am always happy to email an autographed word of thanks to insert in the front pages of books ordered for puppy clients.
