Can anyone recommend a good book about having a puppy. Had dogs all my life but haven't had a pup for 9 years and feel I need to brush up on my knowledge! Thanks

Nothing by ceasar Milan!

Not sure on puppy books but Don't Shoot The Dog or The Dogvinci code are both fab

Before and After getting your puppy by Ian Dunbar. Both available as free e-books on his website I think. I used them and have the perfect dog (three years later!)

I was recommended the Cesar Milan book by our breeder - it's crap!!!!

Cesar Milan believes in fear and pain to control dogs. He is a bloody idiot.

The Happy Puppy Handbook is a brilliant book. Very well written by a very experienced dog trainer.

The Perfect Puppy by Gwen Bailey. Easy practical advice on all the usual puppy issues and training.

I got - 'The Art of Raising a Puppy' by the monks of New Skete.
