Jill Pinkwater, Daniel Manus Pinkwater

How to choose, raise, and train the best possible dog for you. Very good and very practical.

Culture Clash Culture Clash
Jean Donaldson
Paperback (January 1997)

The Culture Clash depicts dogs as they really are - stripped of their Hollywood fluff, with their loveable "can I eat it, chew it, urinate on it, what's in it for me" philosophy. A great training book.
