I'm hoping to get my GSD puppy next year and I'm looking to find some breed books. I've done my research before I chose the GSD but I feel you can never have to much knowledge.
So are there any breed specific books that you can recommend? Or even sport books. Since I'm going to be competing with him as he gets older.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry, not specific about German Shepherds. I have read tons of dog books, but my favorite is:

"If a Dog's Prayers were answered Bones Would Rain from the Sky."

Susan Clothier's book entitled "If a Dog's Prayers Were answered Bones Would Rain From The sky."

I have read a lot of GSD books, and this one is not strickly about the GSD. But it is the best book about dogs I have ever read.

I just read that GSD for dummies book it was actually really informative. I liked it a lot, Before that I read puppies for dummies that was interesting also. Now I am reading The other end of the leash by Patricia McConnell though not breed specific its pretty good so far. I really think you should get GSD for dummies though.

I picked up "Bones" at the airport on my last trip. Haven't finished it yet but really like it.

Still, Sheila Booth's book is the ONE I wish I had had years earlier.
