From a realistic point of view, there is really no such thing as the best dog training book.
Every dog is different, every dog owner is different. People have different lifestyles and different ways of raising their dogs. At Dog Training Rewards we think it is more appropriate to say that “somewhere” there is the “right” dog training manual for you.
You can always send your pet to obedience school, but some people simply don’t have the budget for it. Others just don’t have a good dog training school in their area.
In the world we live in today, we can quickly access any kind of information. Aside from books, you can also learn by watching a dog training video or purchasing a dog training DVD or finding the right information on the internet.
But let’s face it; it’s usually so much easier to learn from a book. You don’t need to turn on your computer or television. Anytime you need to recall something, you just reach for the shelf, flip open a page, and that’s it.
The question is, how do you know what is the best dog training book for you and your pet?
Here are a few pointers:
• Get to know the Author – If you spot an interesting dog training manual at your local bookstore, look up the author first before deciding to buy it. How much of an expert is this person? How many books has he or she previously written on the subject? Researching an authors is a great way to help you decide when you’re trying to choose between several books. The more experienced or accomplished the author is, the more useful advice he or she probably has to offer.
• Look for Honest Reviews Online – Sometimes, reading reviews can actually save us money. There are instances when we see something at the store that convincingly claims to be the best dog training book ever and we instantly buy it. But we end up being disappointed instead (not to mention a few dollars poorer for nothing). Take time to look through reviews. Get a feel if the book you’re interested in is any good or if you’re better off with a dog training video.
• Skim Through The Book Before Buying – Reading book reviews are good, but skimming through a book before buying it is even better. This gives you a chance to quickly check out the dog training techniques presented by the author. Do you agree with them? Do they seem feasible for your lifestyle? Does the program look like something you can commit to? Most of the time, books that claim to be the best dog training book don’t turn out to be what we initially expect them to be. That “quick and easy” training manual might not be as fuss-free as it seems. Another book claiming to “solve all your dog training problems” might entail activities that are not practical for your lifestyle.
