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.

Best answer:

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.
