The Complete Dog Training Manual
This poor book looks like it has barely survived its 40 plus years. Pages were yellowed and falling out of the book. There was also a crunchy feel to the binding. Pick it up and dried glue crumbs are everywhere. This should have been weeded on condition probably in the 1990s.
One of my gripes of animal training books of the 70s and 80s is the lack of really stylish photography. Dogs and cats are cute and can bring up take a so-so book up a notch or two. Even with the black and white photography, I think there could have been better photos. Example: the woman pulling the leash on the dog. At first look, I thought she was poking the pup with a stick. Without that caption, I wouldn’t have understood the photo. Regardless, as dog training books go, this doesn’t look too bad. The author never updated this manual but he did have a more specific training book for watchdogs and a medical manual for dogs.
I am sure all the dogs portrayed are good boys.
