    DefaultFavorite Books on Dogs/Behavior/Training, Etc

    Just curious ~ what are your favorite books on dogs, their training, or behavior?

    One of my favorites for getting all of the puppy basics down was "Dog Perfect: The User Friendly Guide to a Well-Behaved Dog" by Sarah Hodgson. I think I pretty much had that one memorized before we brought Shelby home.

    Another one I like is "The Other End of the Leash" by Patricia McConnell.

    What are your favorites?

    I love this book.

    I also like 'The Culture Clash' by Jean Donaldson

    Currently, I am reading 'Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs' by Suzanne Clothier which I am enjoying.

    Have you read this one by McConnell? "For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend"? I saw it on Amazon and it looks really interesting.and had great reviews.

    A really good, non-fiction (but reads like a novel), entertaining and thought provoking book who's central character is a dog is:

    Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote

    I got it from my Public Library through Inter-Library Loan and rate this book two thumbs up!!
    "If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went." author Will Rogers
