How to Train a Superdog


 Click on the cover above to go to this book at

A very good first general dog book for people who want practical advice rather than lots of pretty pictures. The book does deal with training, as the title implies, but also provides help right from the moment when you decide you want a dog. There is help with choosing a breed, developing exercise schedules, teaching basic obedience, and more complex skills. The illustrations make it easy to follow the instructions. It is refreshing to read books which focus on what dogs can do, as well as how to prevent them doing things we'd rather they didn't do. Yes, it is true that manners training is the solid bedrock, but training can go much further than this, to the benefit of both dogs and owners. This is one of a newer crop of canine guides which draws on recent research to help owners develop dogs' potential. A highly recommended starter book for anyone taking on a dog. Top of page
