Pat Miller's "Power of Positive Dog Training" is definitely an EXCELLENT step-by-step guide for all the do-it-yourselfer dog owners! It helps you through every little bit of training a huge range of behaviors. Definitely worthwhile. Thanks for mentioning it, Billie! It's one of my favorites, too. Although the older edition is great, right now it's being sold at the same retail price as the newer one, so go with that.
