Default Good puppy training books???

I have a baby ridgeback coming home and I need to train it...

I have already bid on one breed specific training book and a book on how to train your dog to be a tracker.

Does anyone know a good obedience training book to get?

Thanks a lot

Evan

EvBouret, I used to have 2 Rhodesian ridgebacks when I was younger. You need to realize that the breed of dog you chose is a "sighthound" not a tracking a dog even though there is a little bit of bloodhound in the ridgebacks. There are people in Australia who hunt boars and small deer with ridgebacks but always use a hound or some type of bird dog in the pack to do the tracking and of course use the ridgebacks for final chase, baying or take down. But using ridgebacks for tracking cougars is a different story.
