I just got 2 rescue dogs a 7 month old and a 6 month old Great Danes. I need to do some training. Help! What is the best book to buy? Also for names do you like Mindy, Wendy or Tina For the Female?

    For books about housetraining and basic training see:http://www.bulldoginformation.com/houseb…http://www.bulldoginformation.com/books-…
    A popular book for housebreaking dogs is Housebreaking your Dog in 7 Days by Shirlee Kalstone (see http://www.bulldoginformation.com/houseb… for this and other similar books)
    A popular book for training dogs is
    Be the Pack Leader: Use Cesar’s Way to Transform Your Dog . . . and Your Life by Cesar Milan (see http://www.bulldoginformation.com/books-… for his and similar books)
    A good list of books about breaking bad habits in dogs can be found here: http://www.bulldoginformation.com/dog-pr…

    As far as names go, I like Tina best for two reasons. One, it’s my nieces name :), and two, dogs hear hard, sharp syllables like “T” and “K” better than soft, rolling syllables like “M” or “R”.
    Regarding the book, there is a very popular e-book/audio book combo known as SitStayFetch.
    You can find it at http://www.dogtrainerpro.info/SitStayFet…
    The book has a long-standing reputation in the online dog training community and has many satisfied customers.
    Before you buy anything, I suggest you sign up for their 6 day training guide that they offer for free. If you like the information you see in there, then you can make your decision.

    Two young dogs at once is a handful, but I don’t think you should be criticized for it. Having two dogs is better than one since they get canine companionship! Plus they have companionship when you have to go to work or school or whatever. Just make sure you sign up for an obedience class. If you have a friend or relative that could come along to work the other dog, take both at once. Otherwise do them in succession, but you should take them to obedience school. And be sure to walk them often. For a book, read my blog (link below).
    For a female great dane, Tina is out as a name. I’d go with Mindy or Wendy.

    I have enjoyed using Diane L. Bauman’s Beyond Basic Dog Training along with attending training classes.
