can anyone tell me any really good dog training books? thanks
i would just go to your local bookstore and look, or, you could ask me questions. i'm experienced at training for obedience and tricks.
Check out the Monks' of New Skete program. www.dogsbestfriend.com
The books and videos are usually readily available at bookstores and pet supply stores, or easily ordered. They have a real understanding of dogs that will help you bond with your dog and understand HOW your dog learns.
The Monks of New Skete have a very good training program & understanding of dogs. The obedience school we go to actually goes there twice a year for seminars. We have picked up alot of great training tips there.
Now for my brag! A year ago when we were there they had a professional photographer there to take pics of their shepherds for their new book, "I & Dog". They asked since we had a wide variety of breeds with us if they could take pics of our dogs for possible inclusion in the book. Of course, we all said yes. The photographer took come pics during the seminar & then they asked some of us to stay after for some more pics. I am proud to say that they picked my cream standard poodle, Chloe for their book - she is on 2 pages!
Way to go! Now I know two dog celebrities. One of Charley's customers at his furniture store raise Champion Dalmations for years and is a judge. One of her dogs is on the AKC's VISA card.
The Innova people have asked about using photos of Bimmer, Shiva and Kharma and sent me a release, but my printer is on the fritz and I haven't been able to do anything with it. By the time I get it straightened around, they'll probably have forgotten all about it.
