Collection Development "Dog Care & Training": The Well-Behaved Dog

Dogs are indeed people's best friends. A majority of owners report that their dog is a "member of the family," and that acceptable canine behavior and optimal care are high priorities for them. The human-animal bond, the close connection between people and their pets, is forged by positive interactions, but unacceptable canine behaviors that result from poor training, such as jumping up or biting, can negatively impact this bond and lead to human injury, legal problems, and an overwhelmed owner possibly giving up a dog to a shelter. Many pet owners, especially those who cannot afford the expense of a private trainer, often turn to libraries to find guidebooks, DVDs, and other resources produced by knowledgeable specialists that offer useful training solutions to behavior problems. This article suggests several books, DVDs, and Web sites that offer excellent information on canine training. (Contains 26 resources and 3 online resources.)
