1. Before and After getting a puppy- Ian Dunbar
2. The Art of Raising a puppy - New Skete Monks
3. Imagine Life with a welll behaved dog - Julie Bjelland
4. Cesars Rules - Cesar Milan
4. How to Raise the perfect dog - Cesar Milan

Thank you

1. yes
2. forget it. It's too old school, heavy handed.
3. Don't know that one.
4. both the Cesar books you don't need.

number one is the only one I'd recommend. I have others, but those two should keep you busy Before You Get Your Puppy by Ian Dunbar Before You Get Your Puppy by Ian Dunbar http://www.siriuspup.com/pdfs/before_puppy_sirius.pdf

After You Get Your Puppy by Ian Dunbar http://www.dogstardaily.com/files/do...Your_Puppy.pdf

and they are free .
