Great Dog Training Books..

So I love to read-I was one of those geeky kids who read on the school bus, stayed up late reading, and well just love to read! I have transitioned to a kindle, kind of. I still have a tendency to want a physical book for things I want to reference later. 

Here are some of my favorite dog training books-the ones I find myself reading again and again…

When Pigs Fly: Training Success with Impossible Dogs by Jane Killion. I just finished this book and I think any dog owner should owner and read it! It makes training clearer and breaks it down into simple steps.
