How do I get a reference library of good dog books?

There is a great deal of information in the public domain that it is outdated, wrong and even dangerous. Be careful which books or internet articles you choose to follow!

In our 'Our Library' heading of this website there is a list of excellent books currently owned by CLEAR Dog Training and which are all available to our instructors. Many of these books are available from good book stores or on line from Amazon, Dogwise or Fishpond. We have linked many books to these three stores and interested parties can preview each book and, should they be interested, proceed to purchase on line.

Dogwise is in the process of converting many of their top selling books to Electronic books, which enables a book to be instantly downloaded for a fraction of the price of a paper or hard back book.

Dogwise says: Why should you buy your ebooks from Dogwise?

Here are a few reasons:

  • To download the Ebook anytime and for instructions on how to load your Ebook onto your reader, just go to the My Ebook Shelf located in the customer account section of our site.
  • We give you all three of the major Ebook formats when you purchase from us - Adobe PDF, Mobi (For Kindle), and ePub (Sony Bookreader, Nook, Ipad/phone/touch, Droid, and other e-reader devices).
  • The PDF format is great for printing.
  • You aren't locked into one brand of bookreader when you buy from us. For example, if you own a Kindle now, and are planning on buying an Ipad, you'll be able to read our books on both devices easily.
  • You don't even need an Ebook reader! Just download the PDF version of the book and read it on your computer.

If your dog is lethargic, losing his hair, gaining weight or suddenly becomes aggressive, perhaps the last thing you (or your vet!) would think about is his thyroid. Unfortunately, however, thyroid disorders can cause literally dozens of health and behavioral problems in dogs and frequently go undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed.
