Good Reads?

I was wondering about any good SchH books out there. Here's a few I found - if you've read them or have any recommendations, let me know.
Also, if you know if any of these books, or any others, that tell about how to start a puppy, I'd like to know. Thanks!

From 1991 (curious if it's outdated).

I think BoCron (Annette) has a welcome packet that includes some excellent suggestions.

Purely Positive Training by Sheila Booth

It's a very comprehensive book that outlines both theory and practice...it also breaks down the training methods by what you are wanting to achieve, i.e. Shutzhund, AKC obedience, agility, etc.

The first book Schutzhund Training and Methods is really outdated-purely positive is a good book

On my trainers suggestion I am now reading:

Schutzhund Obedience Training in Drive with Gottfried Deldei by Sheila Booth.

http://www.amazon.com/Schutzhund-obedience-Training-Gottfried-Dildei/dp/B0006F1CHO
Has information on puppy training too.

Clean, straightforward with pics to provide examples.

"Training the Competitive Working Dog"

The others mentioned are all useful as well as reference materials and different viewpoints.

I think everyone has hit the best suggestions.. Der Schutzhund, Schutzhund Obedince: Training in Drive (Gottfried Dildei & Sheila Booth) and Schutzhund: Theory & Training methods are my favorites.. it may be from 1991, but it doesn't make Stewart Hilliard any less knowledgeable.

Kira ~ Gitta ~ Maik ~ Amalka ~ Hety ~ Taz
