A DOG'S BEST FRIEND: AN ACTIVITY BOOK FOR KIDS AND THEIR DOGS
John Caruso, Lisa Rosenthal
Kid-friendly illustrations and very simple, practical advice will enable
families to welcome a dog or a puppy into their lives with love, understanding,
and responsibility. This is the best book I've seen for parents and kids to
comprehend their pet's needs. It should be offered to anyone wanting their
children to develop the qualities of commitment and responsibility along with
the sheer fun of sharing their lives with an animal. And the drawings and
activities are very, very sweet.

EVERYTHING DOG TRAINING AND TRICKS BOOK
Reader Comment: Very useful for both tricks and behavioral problems I initially bought this book for teaching my dog tricks, but then I discovered that almost half of the book is devoted to how to turn your rambunctious puppy into a well-behaved dog. Gerilyn's methods are all positive reinforcement and she promotes clicker training, which I think is great. Anyways this book has become my bible, both for teaching my dog new tricks and to solve any behavioral problems that crop up now and then.

HOW TO TEACH YOUR OLD DOG NEW TRICKS
Reader Comment: I'm a veterinarian, very involved in behavior training, because that's what keeps my canine patients alive. I've found that if I can get clients involved in teaching a dog who has found out that learning is fun, that dog stands a much better chance of staying alive of becoming an indispensable member of their family. I've checked out numerous trick training books, and this is hands down the best. It's focused, breaks the tricks down into easy, understandable steps, and is written by someone who knows and loves dogs. Bravo!
