okay, it's bonus time, so i'm looking to expand my dog library
of my dogs - both shelter dogs, though i got luc through a rescue. luc was in a shelter for 3 years, teagan for 3.5 weeks. luc has underexposure issues (shocking, i know) and is easily nervous though i've been able to work through a lot of that by being a strong leader and handling interactions for him. he's actually developed into a really happy, goofy dog who grins all the time and loves to meet people who might want to pet him. teagan i've been posting about more recently, she has some aggression issues, with dogs, sometimes people, is showing signs of territoriality in our new house (working on that!) and has a high prey drive.
when the snow is gone, i'd like to start tracking for fun w/both dogs. so i'm looking at books for that, and then books on body language/dog behaviour/aggression issues.
from amazon, these are books i found as possibilities - comments on them, or suggestions for others would be appreciated.
