I Got a Dog – What Was I Thinking?

A guide to surviving life with your new dog or puppy

This ebook focuses heavily on the most common challenges faced by new dog owners: housetraining, puppy biting, and bonding. But it also deals with the more complicated matter of fighting off the monsters in your head. It’s about what to do when sleep-deprivation and self-doubt makes you want to throw in the towel and put the pup up for sale on Craigslist.

Author’s ramblings: in 2012, I began what should’ve been a quick and easy ebook project. (And if I’m being brutally honest, an “easy money” project). It was going to be a basic guide to dog ownership. I figured it’d take a couple months to write. Instead, it took three years. After hearing from a ton of new “puppy parents,” I realized no one needed another basic dog care guide, they needed something… else. They needed the Green Arrow.

So after three years, a lot of rewrites and a lot of crippling self-doubt, “I Got a Dog – What Was I Thinking?” was born in 2015. It turned out a bit different than originally planned, but probably more useful. I’m pretty proud of this thing.

Give Your Dog a Brain

Get your out-of-control dog to chill out, focus, and do what you say

This isn’t really a “book” – it’s a training program, designed like a five-week dog training class. It comes with a short ebook and ten videos to show you exactly how to get a hyper dog to calm the frick down and listen to you. (“Frick?” That was an interesting choice. I’m going with it)

Author’s ramblings: this was the first 3 Lost Dogs product. Created way back in 2010-2011, which, in internet years, is like three decades ago. Videos shot with no budget and a borrowed pit bull mix. Good times. The 3LD philosophy has grown and changed since then (and uh, so have I), and I like to think I’m a better writer and dog trainer now.

I recently did a quick edit of the ebook. Added a bit more info, clarified some stuff, cleaned up the design, and added a couple stupid dry jokes. (Gotta stay On Brand or whatever the cool internet marketer kids say)

I still believe in ye olde Give Your Dog a Brain. It’s a good solid program. It’s stood the test of time. It’s helped a lot of people. Wanna see if it can help you?
