Reading different books by other trainers has helped me immensely in understanding how dogs learn. It has helped me to understand why dogs do what they do, how to get them to do what I want them to do and most importantly, how to figure out what motivates them.
Reading, in addition to training with other trainers, helped me in a way that just studying under another trainer only couldn’t do.
If you are interested in taking your relationship with your pup to a higher level then these books are ones that you will want to read. They are easy to understand and fun. I have put them in the what I believe to be the order of importance, but feel free to start with any of them.
