Robert asks…

I need to know the name of a lady author that writes books about dog behavior?

About a month ago. I was watching tv. They were interviewing a lady about her new book. I remember it been a morning show. The book was about canine behavior. I totally forgot what the name of the book is. I went to Barnes & Noble and they don’t know what I’m talking about… If anybody out there remembers or has read a really good book about canine behavior please let me know. I’m going crazy over here.
Thanks again

It’s Me or the Dog: How to Have the Perfect Pet by Victoria Stilwell?
Victoria Stilwell is one of the world’s most recognized and respected dog trainers. As the host of Britain’s hit television series It’s Me or the Dog and the founder of training schools on both sides of the Atlantic, she is known as much for her spunky attitude as for her caring, effective methods. Now, in her first book, Victoria shows how to tame even the most problematic dog. Simple, intuitive instructions and color photographs help dog owners not merely train their pets, but understand them — so when a new issue arises, they’ll be able to adjust their approach and nip it in the bud before it gets out of hand. Throughout, she reminds owners that training isn’t about imposing their will on a dog; it’s about giving him the tools he needs to live in the human world. Topics include:

–Think Dog: understanding your pup –Talk Dog: canine communication –Dog School: basic obedience training –Dog’s Dinner: the right diet –Accidents Will Happen: house-training –You’ll Never Walk Alone: exercise –Worker’s Playtime: having fun with your dog

Sandra asks…

I’m looking for books on dog behavior.?

Can anyone recommend some good books on dog behavior?

I’m a voracious reader and have read more books about dogs than I can count. Any additional suggestions?

I’ve already read:
For the Love of a Dog (by far the best book I’ve read on the subject)
The Other End of the Leash
How to be Your Dog‘s Best Friend
The Art of Raising a Puppy
The Hidden Life of Dogs (excellent book too)
The Intelligence of Dogs (highly recommend)
… just to name a few, but these were the best.

Any more?
There’s nothing wrong with my dogs. I’m just crazy stupid about them, so much so that I’m starting classes to become an obedience trainer.
I own a self serve dog wash with a small retail area, so I can get anything wholesale from one of my distributors. No need to try and save me money.
