Over the years Acme Canine has gained quite a bit of knowledge on a variety of dog topics.  As part of our mission to be a canine resource to dog owners, we’ve created several booklets ranging from camping with your dog to exercising together in addition to puppy development and introducing your dog to a baby.

Price ranges from $5.00 to $20 (for a packet of 5 puppy booklets) and all are available through the Woofie Shop.  Stop by and check out the booklets as well as the other products we have.

It is probably a safe assumption that for anyone taking the time from their busy schedule to read this; your puppy matters to you.  It is important to understand that dog training is not simply a “dollars and cents” formula, but rather a combination of money, time, energy and ability. Acme Canine’s puppy booklets are designed to teach owners and their puppy at different levels.  Each booklet contains useful information on a specific topic (each coincides with Acme Canine’s Puppy Preschool group classes).  Housetraining, crate training and freedoms; socialization; nutrition & first aid; puppy commands; confidence building and leadership
