Default How to raise a puppy book

Hey there, looking for a good positive based 'how to raise a puppy' book. I was looking into the Monks of New Skete but aren't sure what kind of methods they use so I'll have to look into that but what some other good books that you guys would recommend on this topic?

You want to avoid the Monks of New Skete. I like Ian Dunbar's two books on puppies.. they were offered as free down loads a while back...

Sirius Dog Training

I can't find the one for After you get your puppy, but there's this:

Dog Star Daily

Dog Star Daily is Ian Dunbar's online presence.

The training textbook sections, read them all. That was my primary source of info for raising Finnegan. Lots of great information!

I definately agree with Ian Dunbar's puppy books. I was fortunate enough to go to his seminar a few weeks ago, and even though I know a lot about raising puppies, I still learned a LOT. I will definately read his books again when I do get my own puppy.

The videos on Dog Star Daily are also really helpful.

Thanks for all the suggestions, looks like Ian Dunbar has some good books so I'll check out his site and stuff. Can I get a little explanation on why to avoid the monks?
Is it " How To Raise A Puppy You Can live With " by Clarice Rutherford?
Thanks again everyone.

Don't worry, I won't be limiting myself to just these books.
