The Siberian Husky Live The Adventure - Margaret A. Koehler****
A wonderful book filled with lots of information. I'm so glad that this book was finished after Peggy passed away. Peggy was always the first person to talk to a novice exhibitor at a dog show...she was the first person I met when I started showing in the breed ring.

Siberian Husky (A Breeders Best) - Kathleen Kanzler ****
This book has 22 photos of our dogs/puppies in it.

A New Owner's Guide to Siberian Huskies - Kathleen Kanzler ****
This is a must read if you are thinking about getting a Siberian Husky.

Siberian Huskies For Dummies - Diane Morgan****
Ignore the title, I think that this book has lots of good information in it for someone who is thinking about getting a Siberian.

The Siberian Husky Able Athlete, Able Friend - Michael Jennings ****
This is a good book if you want learn more about the Siberian Husky.

The Complete Siberian Husky - Lorna B. Demidoff and Michael Jennings ***
This is a good book filled with lots of information. It was written in 1978 and the next book is the updated version.

The New Complete Siberian Husky - Michael Jennings ****
The updated version of the above book. This is a must read if you have read Kathleen Kanzler's book and you want learn more about the breed.

The Siberian Husky - Joan McDonald Brearley ***
This book has some neat photos in it.


Winterdance - Gary Paulsen ****
This is an incredible book! Gary Paulsen is my favorite author, I even read his young adult books. If you have a sense of humor and you enjoy running dogs you must read this book. If you have a sense of humor and you have never run dogs before, I guarantee that after reading this book you will consider running sled dogs.

Running North - Ann Mariah Cook ****
This is a very well written book, a must read if you own a Siberian Husky. Ann Cook is a breeder and a judge.

The Cruelest Miles - Gay Salisbury & Laney Salisbury ****
The Heroic Story Of Dogs and Men in a Race Against an Epidemic.This book is filled with history about the 1925 Serum Run. Scott and I both enjoyed this book immensely.

My Lead Dog Was A Lesbian - Brain Patrick O' Donoghue **
It is a good book if you are thinking about doing the Iditarod. I found it hard to get through, but it is OK.

Honest Dogs - Brain Patrick O' Donoghue **
Again it was hard to get through, but if you want to run the Yukon Quest then it may help you.

Dog Driver, A Guide For The Serious Musher - Miki and Julie Collins ****
This book helped Scott and I out a lot when we first started running our dogs. If you are serious about running your dogs then it is a must read.

Training Your Lead Dogs - Lee Fishback ****
This book tells you how to pick a leader and how to train them.

Yukon Alone - John Balzar **
I found this book hard to get through. it was written during the same Yukon Quest as Brian Patrick O'Donoghue's book. So if you have Honest Dogs, you will find that this book has some of the same stories. Also John Balzar is not a racer, he is a journalist following the race.

Cold Oceans - Jon Turk **
This book has a section called Dog Sledding On Baffin Island. It is an interesting book about the author and his adventures. The author moved to Alaska with his children, and he picked up various dogs to make a sled team. After training he went to the Arctic via a dog team, with an interesting companion.

Racing The White Silence - Adam Killick ***
I thought that this book was well written. Adam Killick is not a musher, but he has been a handler during The Yukon Quest a couple of times. I would have liked to see him do a little more research in some areas, but he made it an interesting story.


Food Pets Die For - Ann N. Martin and Michael W. Fox ****
If you don't already feed your dog a natural diet you will after you read this book.

Earl Mindell's Nutrition & Health For Dogs - Earl Mindell ***
This is a good book about nutrition.

Three Dog Bakery Cookbook - Dan Dye & Mark Beckloff ****
Over 50 recipes for all-natural paw-lickin' treats for your dog.

Love, Miracles, And Animal Healing - Allen M. Schoen DVM & Pam Proctor ***
This is a great book about acupuncture and acupressure for your pet. It has lots of stories that make you realize that acupuncture really works.

Kindred Spirits - Allen M. Schoen DVM, MS ***
This book was written by the same author as the above book. It talks about the holistic approach of taking care of your animal. Kindred Spirits goes into detail about caring for animals, and how we bond with animals.


How to Speak Dog - Stanley Coren **
This book is interesting if you like studies of how dogs communicate.

Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home - Rupert Sheldrake ***
I thought that this book was very interesting. I believe in animals' telepathic abilities.

The Social Lives Of Dogs - Elizabeth Marshall Thomas ***
This is a cute book written by an author who has had experience with animal behavior. She wrote this book about her dogs and how they all live together. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas also wrote The Hidden Life Of Dogs ** I do not recommend this book simply because I do not like the idea of Siberian Husky running around loose on the streets of Boston.


Who Moved My Bone - Theresa Mancuso ****
A Guide for multi-dog households. This is the book to read if you are thinking about getting another dog or two.

The Dog Whisperer - Paul Ownes ***
I found his training methods very humane. It is a different approach for training a new puppy.

Smarter Than You Think - Paul Loeb ***
I found his training methods very different than the standard methods.

The Latchkey Dog - Jodi Andersen ***
" How the way you live shapes the behavior of the dog you love." I really liked the way the author could problem solve difficult cases. This book would help a new dog owner better understand the way a dog thinks.

Uncle Boris In The Yukon and Other Shaggy Dog Stories - Daniel Pinkwater **
This book is actually a humor book. The author has also written a dog training book. This book tells stories of the Author's experience with wanting a dog when he was growing up, and then his dogs in his adult life. His first dog in his adult life is an Alaskan Malamute. It is a cute book with funny stories.


Susan Conant's dog lovers mysteries are good if you enjoy mysteries and Alaskan Malamutes.

Sue Henry's Alaskan mysteries with Jessie Arnold are also good. Jessie Arnold is a fictional character that runs sled dogs in Alaska.

Ruff Way To Go, by Leslie O'Kane is a cute mystery with a Siberian Husky in the story line.

I also love to read Laurien Berenson's, Melanie Travis series. It is about Poodles, and the show circuit.
