No one professional has all the answers or knows all the tricks of the trade and sometimes a concept will be presented in such a way that resonates or is more accessible to one person than another.

To help get you started with your research and study, we have done a lot of the work for you. Along with our own books, articles and videos, we have compiled video and reading material from some of the world’s leading professionals in the field of dog care and positive training. We highly recommend you visit the websites of all the trainers listed on this page, read their books and articles and watch their DVDs and youtube videos. DVDs  recommended on this site can be purchased at and as well as the professionals’ personal sites.

This page has been aligned with my 9 Ingredients for a Happy, Healthy Life model as presented in my books, The Dog Whisperer and The Puppy Whisperer: Diet, Play, Socialization, Quiet Time, Exercise, Employment, Rest, Training, Health Care.

We add to this page frequently so don’t forget to stop back!





You will notice that many of my suggested reading links are from Whole Dog Journal. There are many other excellent articles on nutrition to choose from, but I have found WDJ articles to be consistently objective and accessible and a good place to start.
