I think it would be okay to read the books you have seen and watch videos, but since your pup is new to this, it might be good for you guys to learn together. I'm sure there is a very general kinda training involved, but there will also be stuff that you guys can do that will be just what you guys do..does that make sense? He doesn't have to be perfect in the door...both of you should have fun doing this!! Update us on how it goes.
