Isn’t it wonderful having a new furry family member! We know how much joy and happiness a puppy can bring to your lives, however we believe this can be enriched by having them be polite and well-behaved as well.

Here are some of the books we recommend for learning about how to train your dog. All are available as hard copies and some as e-books as well for Kindle or iPad.

-        Dr Sophia Yin, author of Perfect Puppy in 7 Days, How to Behave so Your Dog Behaves, and Dog Aggression: From Fearful, Reactive and Hyperactive, to Focused Happy and Calm, and developer of the Learn to Earn Training Program.

-        Victoria Stilwell - It’s Me or the Dog

-        Dr Nicholas Dodman – Dogs Behaving Badly and The Dog who Loves Too Much.

-        Dr John Bradshaw – Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behaviour Can Make You a Better Friend to Your Pet.

If you are experiencing behavioural issues with your dog, or if they have a sudden change in behaviour, always make an appointment to have your dog examined by your vet first as sometimes there is a medical reason for the change.
