book about terriers

Even though this is a GSD forum, I know many of you have and are knowledgeable about other breeds. I am looking for a good general book about terrier behavior/training. Does anyone know of one? Thanks.

Well they have good books on all the different terrier breeds, I have great books on both my JRT and my Cairns, while terriers are similar in their behaviors, there are still differences unique to each breed, if you have a preference for a particular breed of terrier I would buy a book specific to that breed, my Cairns and JRT's are distinctly different dogs, though they share the same tenacity and drive.

This is a good book about JRT's...

Also the JRTCA website has lots of good info about training, behavior, etc.

It's JRT specific - although a lot can be applied to other terriers (and dogs in general).

Thank you. My foster is all-terrier, but a mixed breed. I do believe she has some JRT though, so that is a good place to start.
