Thanks guys. :)

Keep 'em coming. All suggestions will be considered, most purchased.

I spent $70 at amazon so far, came away with 10 books...and that price includes shipping. :)

Oh...and season 2 of Deadwood on dvd. I LOVE Amazon.com!

There's a set of three books that are truly all encompassing for dog behavior.

Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training
Steven R. Lindsay (Author)

I own Vol 2 & 3. I need to buy the first one, but at almost $100 I'm not sure I'll be able to for awhile.

Amazon's price for all three volumes: Price For All Three: $278.66

I also really liked Excel-Erated Learning: Explaining in Plain Engling by Pamela J. Reid

This book has some good info on how & why dogs get stressed, and the physiological changes that happen: Stress in Dogs by Martina Scholz and Clarissa von Reinhardt

Good luck :)

Hiya Gatorpit-

Not a book, but IMHO a very informative DVD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LNth0SrYHg

Good Luck :thumbsup:

Thanks guys. Everything from the first order is in, and I read Calming Signals the first night.

If you havn't read this book yet...do!!!

Seriously... good, simple stuff. It's amazing all the tiny things our dogs do that are either misinterpreted, or missed completely by most people.

I'm a couple chapters into Culture Clash now, and so far it's a great read. She makes her book fun to read...not really fun...but interesting, keeps your attention. Havn't gotten to the meat of the book yet, but I'm really looking forward to it.
