    DefaultBooks for Obedience Training

    I have Magnum in puppy classes right now but next week is Graduation night. The trainer here says that there isn't anybody local that teaches anything more than Puppy classes. So I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good books that might help with continuing his training.

    Where are you located. I bet there is someone in the area, or a club, that will work with you.

    I'm in Port Hope Ontario. The only clubs in the area are about 45 minutes away. In either Oshawa or Peterborough. So I will look into them. And thanks for the lead on the book.

    I am in much the same position. There is a basic obedience class fairly close to me that I took Emilu to, but when I decided that I wanted to compete with her I needed to find something else. I go to a class that is 1.5 hours away - it's a killer after working all day, but worth it . I have been reading the book "Competition Obedience: A Balancing Act" by Judy Byron and Adele Yunck. It seems to cover everything and I like what's in it. It has a good section for puppies in the beginning of the book. If you have ANY thoughts about eventually showing in obdience, then I would recommend it. I made a lot of mistakes when we first started out because I didn't think that I would ever want to show, and we are now having to correct alot of things. It's easier to teach it right the first time Good luck!
