So one of my new year resolutions was go look info some dog trainer courses just for me rather activities with Juno. So with some trepidation, taking in my advancing years , I'm enrolled on a 6 month course and am currently awaiting my course material. Having received my recommended reading list I've already stockpiled 7 books some from the strongly recommended and a few from the really useful to read. So the first course unit covers :- A practical history of dog training Challenging the dominance myth - dogs are not wolves and The secrets of the domestic dog So with out further ado I'm off to start reading Dominance in Dogs. Fact or Fiction? by Barry Eaton to be followed up with Reaching the Animal Mind by Karen Pryor.
