Red face Advised Reading - The best books?

Well with a new arrival on the way I was just wondering which books would be considered worth getting, as I'm going to go on an Amazon shopping spree! I'm getting How to Raise a Puppy you Can Live With and I also heard The Perfect Puppy : How to Raise a Well-Behaved Dog was good. I'm interested in any puppy raising, house training or positive/clicker training books, or anything others have found useful. Any recommendations?

Put as Number One at the top of your list: "My Smart Puppy" by Brian Kilcommons and Sarah Wilson. It just came out a couple of weeks ago and is absolutely the MOST positive training book I've seen. I've been working through it systematically with Hudson, and I can say that even the first weekend I had the book, my relationship with him improved and we seemed to understand each other better right away. It comes with a 60 minute DVD that is really helpful too. Get it NOW!

I think this is going to be a great thread. I'm going to be organising a Christmas package of English books and DVD's for the kids for Chrimbo and will be sneaking in a book for me. I was thinking of something by Ian Dunbar but just don't know.

Maybe we should gather some author/book names and make a poll?

The number one book on your list should be How To Raise A Puppy You Can Live With. Read it NOW. It is the best book.

I am reading Culture Clash (Jean Donaldson, I think?) right now and I am enjoying it. We also have The Other End of the Leash, which my husband is reading.

Haha, It's on order from amazon, I heard it was great

I'm very interested in the agility one. May I ask what Culture Class is about?

I'll probably get about 4 books for now, and then add more to my collection. I'm addicted to these books!

If you really like to read the Dog Bible is a pretty good book to have for any dog owner......

I know it's controversial, but I like Caesar's Way.

Ian Dunbar has Before and After Getting Your New Puppy. Excellent and an easy read.
