You can check Amazon. I have the Chihuahua book. But it just has a bunch of information on chihuahuas in general. Not just training. Also check Ebay

There is a book for 'training your small dog' I think. Don't know the author.

Books ca be helpful, but for me, a large part of training has to do with socializing and relationship building, so I find that going to a class is much more helpful. It helps to have another set of eyes watching. If i'm working with timmy to try and train him to "sit", it helps to have someone watch me as well to see if i'm teaching him "right".

(i'm assuming you meant behavior/obedience training, not potty training. . .)

My boyfriend bought me this book for my birthday. It's pretty good for beginner Chihuahua owners. Chihuahua (Smart Owner's Guide): Dog Fancy Magazine: 9781593787486: Amazon.com: Books

I have the one Chiluv posted, too, and it's also a good book .

This book is excellent for dogs in general. It's one of my favorites: The Toolbox for Remodeling Your Problem Dog: Terry Ryan, Jackie McCowen: 9780876050491: Amazon.com: Books

This isn't a training book, but it is really good. It's probably my favorite dog book:
http://www.amazon.com/How-Speak-Dog-...=stanley+coren

Here's one more. It was a good book, but there are a few parts of it that aren't completely up-to-date. It's still a great read, though: http://www.amazon.com/Good-Owners-Gr...ers+great+dogs

As you can see, I've read lots of dog books .
