Some of my favorite dog-training, puppy-raising expert authors are:  

Dr. Sophia Yin, Patricia McConnell, Pat Miller, Susan Garrett, Jan Fennell, Dr. Karen Overall, Cesar Millan, Karen Pryor, and Leslie McDevitt.  My favorite groups/pages are Puppy Culture, Avidog and the Vermont Dog Pack (they also run "My Dog Camp" courses).


I recommend reading anything they have written (except for The Education of Will, by Patricia McConnell -- you might like it but I did NOT), watching YouTube videos, DVD's, etc.  While you will want to take your puppy to a class or two, it's also good to educate yourself as much as possible.


Below are some suggested reads.  Perfect Puppy in 7 Days is much cheaper HERE than on Amazon.
