I know it's not reading, but "The Language of Dogs" DVD by Sarah Kalnajs was great. It is produced by Dogwise, who puts out the Turid Rugaas DVDs and books. Just don't buy a copy on Ebay... (lesson learned!) For books, I would vote for "The Other End of the Leash", by Patricia McConnell and "The Power of Positive Dog Training", by Pat Miller. You cannot go wrong with either.
"Training the Best Dog Ever-A 5-Week Program Using the Power of Positive Reinforcement"-Dawn Slyvia-Stasiewicz and Larry Kay.
Just picked it up today, and I love how it is written and the progress journal in the back is really quite nice. Gives you things to work on and homework every day and allows you to record your progress!
Its endorsed by Ian Dunbar as well, and has one multiple rewards. Seems like a great book especially for someone like me who is new to training dogs!
Has anyone here read "the dog listener" by Jan Fennell? I am about half way through so far, but was just wondering what the general thoughts on the book in this forum are?
I am going to expanding my knowledge greatly on dogs, and dog behaviour, but I just want to ensure that what I am reading is factual and worth my time!
