Training Books/DVD Recommendations?

Due to certain circumstances in my life, my plans for a puppy have been put on hiatus.

I am enjoying the heck out of my current dog, and have done more with her in the past year or so than I've done with her in all of her early years combined! I'm planning on taking her through some beginner obedience and/or agility classes just for fun. But also to get a real idea of the "flavor" of training available in my area for the time when I am able to make the puppy commitment.

That being said, I love being as prepared as possible, so am looking for any training book/DVD recommendations. (and Lena will likely benefit from them as well!)

I have a pretty keen interest in SchH/IPO, but would almost certainly not be pursuing that with my first GSD puppy. I would love to get involved with OB and/or some casual agility at a minimum to keep up a decent level of interest and activity. Building a high level of engagement and a happy work ethic are very important to me, so any materials that touch/focus on that would be great as well.

Any general training resources that are geared specifically towards the challenges or different approaches of training a GSD would likely be helpful, as I've never had one before.

Thank you in advance!
