What are the best dog training books?

It's hard to tell exactly what the best one is - but here are a couple very good ones that will tell you the basics about training your dog. The main thing to think about is: what do I want to train the dog to do? If you're having obedience problems, then focus on a book on that. If you want to teach your dog tricks, there are books specific to that. You can also get books that just cover everything if you want to do both.

The Only Dog Training Book You'll Ever Need by Gerilyn Bielakiewicz and Andrea Mattei

This one is completely comprehensive, as the title implies. It's written for novice trainers who have no experience training dogs. It covers clicker training, a method using noise signals to train your dogs. It also covers some easy methods to teach your dog commands, and they don't take very long for most dogs to learn.

The New Complete Dog Training Manual by Bruce Fogle and Patricia Holden White

This book is mainly a basic manual to teaching stuff to your dog. If you have no clue where to start, start here. If you're looking for more advanced training tips, it may not be as useful.

Maran Illustrated Dog Training

This is a really good guide as well, especially if you're a visual learner. It uses a ton of photographs and illustrations to show you exactly what to do. It's used by a textbook in a lot of dog training classes.
