pp, does this book have enough info and images to be helpful to people like me who are grooming their own dog for show but are not pro groomers?
Yes but I would also invest in The Complete Poodle as they complement each other and both bring different things to the grooming table ;)

This book is AWESOME!!!!! It doesn't have color images (just black and white), but it's really jam packed full of information - and if you are grooming your own dog - I would really say it's a Must Have!

Also ... Groomer to groomer (magazine) is available for subscription free online at: http://www.groomertogroomer.com/

PS: I won't start listing my books.... since I have a library with books concerning dogs... from first aid to grooming to sheltering! Love reading :)

I soooo wish I still had the time to read like I used to. It seems like I do most things by the seat of my pants now with so much to do. But thanks for the second on the recommendation.

LOL I have probably 60 books more or less ? I been collecting dog books since I was probably 12 ?

Well in my teen years I used the training books on my GSD , she knew over 100 commands probably close to 200 ? I would train her DAILY in my front yard.

I am used to working with GSD's, Rottweilers , pit bull type breeds lol.

As for doing more with Enzo other than showing yes. We would like to get him into hunt testing. ( this is why I was so happy about his performance at the beach) maybe tomorrow or friday I will start training him to hold his breath lol

I have this agility book also

This seems to be a good book I plan on getting it, seems pretty hard to get ahold of on other sites besides this on, I checked it out on Amazon and it was selling USED on there for like $175.00! this link it sells for $35 I found it used on ebay for $25 but why get a used on when you can get the new one for $10 more and you know it will be in excellent condition.

http://www.hoflin.com/Books/Books.html They have other books as well, they are the publisher of poodle review, you can order that from them as well.

I've been meaning to pick up one of Cesar's books, or a couple of his dvds before our puppy arrives home...
we've watched about 200 episodes of his show over the last few weeks (PVR is a wonderful thing!) so I feel like I can be pack leader... how do you feel his training methods work with poodles? I can honestly say, I've NEVER seen a Standard on his show, and to me that is a good sign for the breed! :)

I think his training methods work great with any breed, they are done in a manner that is natural for a dog, leadership establishment and respect according to rank...as far as never seeing a standard on his show, he has a standard himself in his pack at the rehabilitation center..of course it is shaved down, so you may not have recognized it as one lol! I love Cesar! I also like Victoria though! :hail:

I like Ceasar and have used what I've learned on his show to help me train my spoos. He has such a wonderful and natural approach.

I just received the Kalstone book on Poodle Grooming. I've only flipped through it but it looks great! Very informative! My only complaint would be the pictures are all black and white, but they're still very detailed. I'm waiting on The Complete Poodle to be delivered.
