Which dog books should I get?

Books to Start Off With

When deciding what dog books to purchase, it's helpful to first evaluate what your needs and interests are. If you're a beginning dog owner, then try basic training and behavior books. A dog training and behavior book will tell you how dogs communicate with each other, instruct you on teaching your dog basic commands and good manners, and tell you how you should interact with your new canine. It might also be helpful to obtain a book specific to the breed of dog that you have, as different breeds have different characteristics and needs. Another good resource would be a book that covers basic health information on your dog so that you can keep it healthy and strong.

If you're interested in involving your dog in competition or conformation, there are many books available on topics such as flyball, agility, and show dogs.
