Post Dog Books.

What is everyone's favorite dog books? Lets take a survey ?

State 1-2 books for each category. It's ok to pick books others have already listed.

The categorie's:

Puppy Ownership
Training
Behavioral
Medical
Breed guide
All around, if someone could only afford only one book in dog ownership

Feel free to leave a review of the books too. Would love to see this become a reference point we can all use and learn something from.

i liked the Monks of New Skete dog training book
and for learning about dogs The Intelligence of Dogs Canine Consciousness nad Capabilites has taught me alot. (they should have hired me for the illustrator on that one however)

Medical- Dog Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook 3rd edition by James M. Griffin, MD & Liisa D. Carlson, DVM- great book! It has alot of information on all kinds of problems your pet could have. And basic emergency care for a dog (CPR, how to deal with basic injuries, etc)

Breed guide- Bullmastiffs Today by Lyn Pratt- has lots of info about the breed in general. Has the breed standard, training info, breed history etc.


Another good book- The Whelping and Rearing of Puppies A complete and Practical Guide by Muriel P. Lee- I would recommend this book for anyone thinking about breeding or just getting into it. Has very practical info. Great reference!

I really liked Raymond Coppinger's Dogs : A New Understanding of Canine Origin, Behavior and Evolution, I thought it was fascinating.

Also, I'm not sure if this counts but I'm a HUGE James Herriot fan, I grew up on those books and have one that's a collection of just dog stories.

I also vote for the Monks of New Skete, and right now I'm reading a good one called The Latchkey Dog by Jodi Anderson that examines how the switch to more modern lifestyles has affected our relationships with our dogs.

Well, I haven't read a whole whole bunch of dog books, but my alltime favorite is Your Pure Bred Puppy:A Buyer's Guide (www.yourpurebredpuppy.com). I guess that would go under the Breed Guide. For training, I like the Idiot's Guide to Positive Dog training and Good Dogs, Great Owners. (Can't remember who wrote them though...lol)
