Suggested Reading

Books to help with training, both in the home and in the show ring.

"New Secrets of Successful Show Dog Handling" by Peter Green & Mario Migliorini.  A terrific book for anyone even thinking about stepping into the show ring. Peter Green is one of the most highly respected, kind, and gentle professional handler I have had the chance to meet.


" Top Dogs Making it to Westminster" 
by Deborah Wood
Chronicles one wacky year of dog shows as competitors plan strategies, stage campaigns, and just plain slug it out for the honor of "Best in Show" at Westminster... scary thing... its all true and has real people in it!


"The Dog Whisperer"
By Paul Owens with Norma Eckroate
 A bit on the extreme side in some Doggie Yoga Stuff.... but also has a lot to offer in training techniques and suggestions. "A Compassionate, Non-violent Approach to Dog Training"


This book is not pictured, but is ANYTHING written or suggested by Pat Hastings. She is a terrific dog person and Judge. If you ever have an opportunity to go to one of her seminars (dog show person or not... GO!).

MacAlphine GSMD has recently discovered a fantastic, All-natural brand of Pet food! Please check it out! Free Samples, too! Flint River Ranch!
