ive been meaning to start this off for a while now and because im board i think im going to do it now
i wanted to start a thread off about books and stuff what you all like about them and what you dislike about them

So here goes just going to do a few for now

Jean Donaldson - The Culture Clash
I like this book because it goes along with my own personal beliefs and ethos on dog training, its easily picked up, modern thoughts and just over all a damm good book
BUT
its really really hard going very indepth and just quite hard really

Pamela Dennison - The Idiots Guide to Positive Dog Training
i cant praise this book enough - its just really dead good - in every day english (american) easy to understand and follow and its got loads of little pictures in it too. The only problem i have with it is its very american if you read it or own anything out of the FOR DUMMIES series you will know what i mean

Pamela Dennison - Bringing light into Shadow
One of my fav books fantastic

on talking terms with dogs - turid rugaas

+
a very short book about dogs speaking dog and how turid has managed to learn and communicate using some of the communication that dogs give out.  an interesting read :)

-
too much about wolves - although they follow a pack structure domestic dogs are not wolves

hi,

yes i am not saying its a bad book because it talks about relevant things - just that it makes them appear irrelevent to the novice by talking about wolves not dogs when it could be interchanged ;)

Kiz would that book 'on talking terms with dogs'  be similar to what I am doing with the pics ??? so could accompany me in my pursuit to learn their language and communication? :P

Have you read "the Velveteen Rabbit" by Margery Williams ( Or How Toys become real).
Wish the same sentiment was true for dogs.
