Looking for refrences for Training books

I want to train Bailey as a therapy dog to take to the nursing homes and other places to cheer people up.

I want to be able to train her as well to the point she could pass a service dog test.

I have been looking around for books and would love peoples opinions on training books of all kinds!

I keep seeing Teamwork I and Teamwork II pop up alot? Any opinions on this set?

When Zoe was training for her Delta therapy dog test we used their Training Manual which had lots of information. It seems that their materials have been updated since then. You can check them out at Pet Partners® There is also information on service dogs there.

Since CGC training is often a first step in therapy dog training you might look at Citizen Canine, the AKC's training manual for the CGC, by Mary R. Burch and A Dog Who's Always Welcome, by Lorie Long.

Awesome thanks so much! I am really interested in the training with a service dog about Seizures as my father has them a lot.
