Margaret's picks for training, reference and raising puppies:

An approach to training designed to make an obedient, reliable animal of the family dog.

Really two books in one: a step-by-step training manual and a philosophical discussion of the spiritual benefits of owning a dog.

Very good for those interested in AKC obedience and/or titling their dogs.

A Masterpiece in the field of dog care...Mercifully clear and readable. If you own a dog and love it, you must keep a copy on your handy reference shelf!"

Very handy and good information even if you don't plan on raising any pups.

Great for beginners or advanced, easy reading.

We've used the recommendations for our own dogs.


Other books that our clients have recommended:

This advanced and specialized, but good information and reading for those interested in protection and other advanced training.

Another good starting puppy book.

More insights into your dog.

A very good reference and guide to understanding behavior problems.  Must reading if you have a monster on your hands.

Wonder what your dog is saying? This book helps understand how dogs communicate.

Another view into your dog's mind.

Great book, even if you are just thinking about adopting one of these wonderful animals.
