New puppy book recommendation

Its been a year since I read this book but I thought I would recommend it to anyone interested in reading up on methods of dog training, or anyone looking to buy a puppy and needing some resources.

The Art of Raising a Puppy by The Monks of New Skete.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FArt-Raising-Puppy-Monks-Skete%2Fdp%2F0316578398&tag=5336432754-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325
I found this book to be fantastic, the author writes in a mature way that made it really easy for me to understand the concepts. I've found through personal experience than many of their methods work very well. It's also a great tool to look back at if you run across problem behavior.

I handed the book down to my parents who were getting a puppy and they have been reading it.

They also have another book about how to be your dogs best friends, I am looking to pick it up next. One thing that brought me into reading the book was the fact the these monks breed and raise GSDs, so they automatically found a place in my heart.

A long time favorite! You should check out www.leerburg.com- they have many free training videos that are great. Especially the Michael Ellis dvds

Are those DVD's any good I've read ALOT of mixed opinions on that site, alot of negative stuff. I looked at the DVD's but they don't fit my current budget very pricey. Video's seemed good though from you tube about puppy engagement while training etc.

I totally forgot about this book. I know the author, who is an AKC tracking judge. The website explains it all.

Puppy Training Book - Fascinating Scent

It can be bought here for $10. http://www.timbercreekacres.net/Misc.htm
