While I was at PetSmart on Saturday I picked up a book on training. It is put out by Barron's and is written by September B. Morn. Just wondered if this was a good book. I thought I had seen it recommended either on here, oe elsewhere.
What other books would some of you suggest. Also, do any of you get the Labrador/Retriever specific mag put out by Dog Fancy?
I bought and read a few different books on training, as well as borrowed from the local library. Over and above all, for me, was The Other End Of The Leash; got it at the library, then bought my own copy to have. It explained how to 'read' my dog and communicate with him, as well as great training advice. Want your dog to come to you....start running away from him, or crouch down, arms outspread...tips like that worked wonders for me; maybe lots of other people know that, but I didn't at the time. I also learned to just use hand signals. Tucker from the start watched my hands all the time, so I've used hand signals since he was a puppy. I've recommended that book to a few friends who've gotten puppies recently.
