Recommended Reading

During my time studying and working with dogs and animal behaviour I've come across lots of great books - and lots of terrible ones too!

When looking at dog training books, be sure to check when they were published - chances are some of the older ones use older methods that are no longer considered to be best practice, or the most effective.

Always look for trainers using positive methods, with the overall idea being to reward behaviour you like and ignore behaviour you don't like.

I've broken my list of recommended reading into three sections:
