  • The Shetland Sheepdog by Margaret Osbourne.   This is one of the originals, again by a UK author & my edition cost just 30s.   I don't know whether this book is still in print, but it was published by Popular Dogs Publishing Co. Ltd from 1959 - 1970.


Agility and Training Books

  • Everybody Can Train Their Own Dog by Angela White and published by TFH Publications.  This is an excellent reference guide for traing your own dog and should benefit everyone from complete newcomer to long time enthusiast.  ISBN: 0 86622 524 2.
  • Happy dogs... Happy winners! by Angela White and published by TFH Publications.  Follows on from the above book and gives advice on how to enjoy (people & dogs!) competitive obedience.

I know this looks as though I am a big fan of Angela White, but her training ideas / methods follow my beliefs and experiences very well.
