Books I have read and loved


Marley and me by John Grogan: Life and love with the world’s worst dog.

It’s about the author and his wife as newly weds falling in love with a Labrador they named Marley. Marley even gets kicked out of puppy obedience training but ends up being a star in a movie. Then they have a baby and Marley struggles to fit into their perceived idea of the family dog.

Don’t shoot the dog by: Karen Pryor

In this book Karen talks about positive reinforcement training not only for dogs but in our daily human relationships too. She clearly explains the difference between conventional methods and positive reinforcement. It really is a live changing book that opens your world of communication and handling situations. It also offers great training advice.
