    Hi Jessica,
    I got started training dogs when I was a teenager and volunteered to walk people's dogs and then also volunteered at a local animal shelter. You get exposure to all kinds of problem dogs there. I had also studied psychology in college, in particular behavioral psychology. But my big lesson came when we adopted a 6 week-old Husky/German Shepherd cross from the local shelter shortly after I got married. Gypsy was a stunningly beautiul dog, white and grey like a Husky but with German Shepherd built and markings. She had the independence of a Husky and was also quite dominant. She forced me to learn how to train without confrontation, using positive reinforcement only. That's when I met the trainer who mentored me. The first book she gave me to read was Karen Pryor's book "Don't shoot the dog". It is still one of the most useful books about training theory and you may find it very useful to read. It's a paperback and should not be too expensive.
    Another great trainer and author is Ian Dunbar, the founder of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. His book Sirius Puppy Training is a classic.
