Fav is Living with dogs by Sheila Hocken (or how not to be a failed dog owner) printed in 1985 by a lady who was blind before an op. She had a guide dog who she learnt a lot from and went on to train dogs using fun and reward


Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it,
Just pee on it and walk away

Always feel obliged to read when someone I love and trust recommends.   ;D

Sometimes depends on my frame of mind how much I take from it...

Good doggie books are snoopy books  ;D  Garfield for cats  ;D
