Best Educational books on Training Theory
Good Morning all,
This thread is not seeking a "best book on training XXX or XXX breed."
I am 32 years old, so hopefully there are quite a few more GSD's in my lifetime. I would like to start developing a more intimate knowledge of training theory and understanding. Being more educated between the different theories can only help my understanding on how to properly communicate with my current, and future dogs.
With that preface, are there any books a seasoned owner would recommend that were real eye openers for them? I have browsed a few of the threads using the search function, and have ordered "Don't Shoot the Dog." But most of the threads have specific; "How do I do X' How Do I correct X; Are there GSD training books" when searching. I would like to start more with the basic fundamentals.
I also understand that there are manyyyyyyyy theories out there and even this question might be a broad stroke question. So, any books someone would recommend that were really helpful, well written, really shifted their personal understanding of behavior.
