Are There Books for Training My First Cav Puppy?

Hey there.

I am buying my puppy this week from a breeder and I have been studying up on the breed, the bring home, safety, and some training. I understand cavaliers are a breed you need to be gentle and patient with. Are there any training books out there that any of you recommend?

Thanks :)
Congratulations on getting your puppy. Be sure to post some pictures!

Ian Dunbar is an excellent resource. There are free, downloadable books with info from what to do before bringing your puppy home to lots of training techniques and tips for successfully training your dog.

Good luck.......would love to hear more about your puppy.
