What are some good training books, trick books that you recommend. I have been reading one lately called How to speek dog by Stanley Coren. Does anyone know any on agility and how to make home made courses?

Stanley is great, and anything by Ian Dunbar or Bruce Fogle are good too. I like them because they are down to earth and common sense. Of course I love our training DVD because it explains who dogs are and how to communicate with them effectively and efficiently and a manner they already understand.
I have a book called Do It Yourself Agility Equipment by Jim Hutchins. I think you can get it on www.cleanrun.com.

A really good training book (general training items) is Good Owners, Great Dogs, by Brian Killcommons and (a lady that I forget her name). There is a great training book for tricks - Dog Tricks for Dummies... it's fun... there's basic starting tricks for agility trainging and other cute stuff!! Have fun! :D
