George asks…

Where can I download free dog training books off the Internet?

I’m beginning to train my dog and I’m looking for a good site that I can download free dog training books? Any suggestions anyone?

admin answers:

Your local library has a bazillion of them that you can check out for free.

Ruth asks…

What dog training books, videos, etc do you recommend?

I have a 3 month old pit bull terrier mix puppy. We are working on training him and have noticed that several of the “experts” from our training manual and videos sometimes contradict each other. I was wondering if anyone could tell me of some resources that you have used that have worked for you, so that I can look into them? So far, I have come across Caesar Milan ,Barbara Wodehouse(sorry about the spelling) , Kevin-somebody , and a couple of others. Thanks in advance :)

admin answers:

Oh yes, I know of LOTS of great books.

For one, “Pit Bulls for Dummies” is a great book.

There is a book at Pet Smart JUST for Pit Bull training, and it comes with a Training DVD.

I also have “Idiots guide to Positive Dog Training”

There are many online resources as well.

Email me if you need anything else!

“It’s Me or the Dog: How to Have a Perfect Pet” by Victoria Stilwell.
She uses positive methods that are very easy for anyone with any level of dog experience to execute. For example, you don’t want your dog to jump on you? Turn around and face the opposite direction when the dog is jumping, fold your arms over your chest, and completely ignore the dog and be totally BORING. When a dog is jumping it usually wants attention so if you show the dog that jumping gets him exactly the opposite of what he wants, he’ll stop.

Easy, right? :)

Plus, positive methods are much better for a dog’s mental health and help to build a dogs self confidence.

Another one I highly recommend: “Before and After You Get Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and Well-Behaved Dog” by Ian Dunbar. Not quite as accessible as the Victoria Stilwell book, but this guy is one of the top professionals in the dog training world and has a PhD in animal behavior. He is also the guy who is the father of the concept of puppy obedience class.

Good luck, and good for you for actually wanting to train your Yorkie, rather than treat it like a fashion accessory :)
