Well, Scorch, it doesn't look too dated - might be a good fit for the collection, and is available through my library's distributor. So that series might be a good start for dog-training.
The books look pretty good for us as well, may have to see if those are available in a newer printing.
Thanks for the suggestions thus far!
How about sport shooting or hunting for those with youngsters? Any dvd type instructionals out there you would recommend?
