Alaskan Malamute Reading Material

There are a great many books written about dogs. This reading list is only a small sample of what can be found at your local bookstore or library. Titles marked with an asteric (*) are currently out-of-print, but can still be found at dog shows, used book stores, etc. The "General Dog" section is obviously a very tiny selection of varied subjects. I encourage everyone to find and read what interests them.
