Smart Dog

I believe that you are never done learning about the profession you are in. I'm always trying to expand my knowledge and grow as a dog trainer and owner. A big part of my job is educating owners and giving them resources. On this page you will find recommended books and other resources to help you on your journey with your dog. Most of these books can be found on Dogwise (link below) which is a great resource for books.
