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.Another one I like is "The Other End of the Leash" by Patricia McDonnell.
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.Originally Posted by Trickster

"Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend." ~ Corey Ford
Marley & Me - John Grogan
A Dog Year - Jon Katz
I tend not to read training/behavioral books....
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!!
