Resources for Real Dog training

Leann
The list author says: "This list is for all of you interested in training your dog and want to know where to start. These are great books to learn the theory and ideas behind clicker training, otherwise known as Operant Conditioning, but be sure to contact a local positive trainer in your area to really learn how to train your dog with consideration and compassion. Remember, train without pain for a happy, healthy dog!
