A substantial and thorough book. First written in 1946 and still reflects the foundation and requirements for dog training. Certain techniques are dated and no longer recommended. The author easily helps you understand and establish a great working relationship with your dog.

When I was given my first dog, my grandmother--an AKC breeder and trainer--gave me this text. It was wonderful: clear and concise. It's central concept I have found to be true: dog obedience so often depends on the owner's consistency in commands, and understanding the dog. This book helps both!

I have trained 4 German Shepherds over the last 37 years using the principals taught in this book. I recommend it to everyone who owns or plans on getting a dog no matter what the breed. This book is a dog owners Bible when it comes to training and correcting bad behavior and rewarding good behavior.

TRAINING YOU TO TRAIN YOUR DOG (Saunders; Doubleday) is the obedience standard (and she had poodles). Some of her training ideas seem unnecessarily severe. She was my aunt's godmother and I was always partial to her and had a soft spot in my heart for her book, but now that I've gotten back into obedience training, I much prefer Strickland's approach. And the clarity of her writing.

I have the 1952 edition of the Saunders (the clothing is a real hoot), and I don't know if there is a newer edition. Surely there must be. If so, perhaps some of the draconian techniques ("punish your dog") have been rethought. By the picture on the cover here, however, this book is the same as my 1952 edition.

A better obedience book, I think, despite family loyalty, is Strickland's EXPERT OBEDIENCE TRAINING FOR DOGS.
