Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions for books on competitive obedience training. I'm also interested in conformation, and someone recommended Dual Ring Dog which is out of print.

Thanks.

Maybe this will help: http://www.poodleforum.com/showthread.php?t=3262&highlight=obedience+books

Have you checked Amazon for the book you mentioned?

I bought Show Me! (can't remember the author right now) and The Complete Poodle by Del Dahl b/c they were recommended here and I really like both of them. I believe the Dahl book is out of print but you can find it on Ebay and Amazon. I think Mr. Dahl in particular is such a great writer and I read his entire book from start to finish in just a couple hours. I love Amazon b/c of the reviews, even if you don't buy the book from there, I think they are worth checking out. I thought about buying a few conformation books and if you pay close attention to the reviews, you figure out which ones are worth the money.

Thanks for the link, HC. [Probably should have done a search before posting :) ] I'll check them out. I've checked out Del Dahl's book from the library and want to get my own copy. Right now looks like the cheapest one is $45 and goes on up to over $100. Just an indication of what a great reference book it is. I'll just keep looking periodically and see if I can't find one for less. And agree that it's great to be able to read the reviews on Amazon.

Very straight forward and clear. Good diagrams. Will take you from Novice all the way through Utility.
