"Helping You and Your Pet Become Best Friends for Life"


 

Books We Do NOT Recommend

There are many books on dog training and canine behavior that are extremely outdated and contain information that is potentially dangerous and/or inhumane. Many of these books also promote some very erroneous and deceptive ideas about dogs and dog behavior. At Green Acres we feel that we have an ethical responsibility to guide you away from these books. While the following list is not all encompassing, it does list several books that we find seriously flawed.
