Question by toricrawford: What are some of the most effective dog training books to used? Which ones are the best?
I’m trying to buy a good dog training book so I can train my dog at home. There are so many I don’t know which ones would be the best to get. So if you’ve ever used a dog training book, let me know what you thought about it.

Answer by Steven L.
Two MUST read books for you are Dog Problem: Gentle and modern solutions by David Weston and The Other End of the Leash by Patricia McConnell. I once asked this question on a forum and got some good answers here is the link if you want to check it out: http://www.dogforums.com/2-general-dog-forum/35912-need-your-guy-s.html

ETA: I would stay away from the Koehler Training book, I just read it and its appauling. In general stay away from books that focus on negative training.

  1. As a dog owner myself, I had trouble training my 2 husker before. I have searched the website and came across this ebook which I used and it turns out to be the same as recommended by Bindi. It’s called the clicker training.

    I would also suggest that you read up more on how to give your dog nutritious meals as it will help to keep them in good shape and in good mood too. Keeping them happy helps in dog training as well.

  2. PetSmart and other corporations offer great petsmart training,I had to go to training for three weeks to be cerified! They work from the basics. I am actually and accredited pet trainer for petsmart. In the classes that I teach we work on potty training, discouraging unwanted behaviors such as barking, nipping, jumping chewing and potty training. We also do the basics such as sit, down, leave it, drop it, take it, walking on a leash, loose leash walking, come when called. Shake, hi five, bang bang dead dong, and so much more. The classes are so beneficial to you and your puppy, we use positive reinforcement. =) You should look into it!

  3. OK here’s what the deal is.i had went out an got me a husky puppy some 12 years ago now she is no longer alive i loved my old Tasha. anyway at the same time i got her. i picked up this book husky for dummies i swear it was the best thing i did. it was always on the money.maybe you can find a book like that for your doggy. good luck.
