Learn About Your Dog
January 14, 2012
For the last 29 years I’ve read many books and magazines on dog training and dog behavior. One of the earlier books I read (other than dog training manuals) is “The Monks Of New Skete” It was the must read book in it’s day. If you read it today, you could still pick up some helpful advice, but because of the changes in technique and philosophies over the years, It’s not my first choice as a must read book for today’s dog owner.
I know that dog owners are just expected to know everything about their dog, but the reality is- they don’t and in many cases, not even close. As your dog’s teacher, your dog deserves for you to learn from the real Authorities in the business. A great way to do this is to read books that I and other top trainers and behaviorist recommend.
Books also make a great gift idea.
