I have always enjoyed the Holly Winter dog-lovers mysteries by Susan Conant, and I just recently read and greatly enjoyed Smoky Mountain Tracks by Donna Ball featuring dog tracker Raine Stockton and her Golden Retriever, Cisco. I have already ordered the next two in this series, but i was wondering what other good dog mysteries are out there?

A Dog About Town by J.F. Englert (an LT author) and the sequel A Dog among Diplomats are good. The dog is the narrator so you get a little different point of view.

You might also try Sue Henry's Murder on the Iditarod Trail about a woman running the Iditarod with her dogs and solving murders along the way.

Not a big fan of dogs so I cannot recommend anything but the question reminded me of something and even though I cannot find the article I was thinking about, this http://www.cozy-mystery.com/blog/dogs-can-be-cozy-too-dog-mysteries.html was the link that was linked at the end. Might give you some more ideas :)

dulcibelle, I got A Dog About Town today at the library. It seems very intriguing.

alcottacre, I read Henry's Murder on the Iditarod Trail a few years ago and had forgotten about it...and the dogs. It was an enjoyable read.

And AnnieMod, thanks for the link to the Dogs and Cozies list. It is just what I was looking for.

I love the Laurien Berenson books, and would highly recommend them!

I just read Dog On It by Spencer Quinn and thought it was cute. The story is about a private eye and his faithful sidekick, Chet. Told from the dog's point of view, it made me laugh out loud in certain places since I see my own dog behave the same way Chet does.

This is not great literature or an intense mystery but more of a fun story based on a dog's insight.

The Sneaky Pie Brown mysteries are generally marketed for cat lovers, but there's an intelligent Corgi in them, as well as some other critters, if you don't mind the anthropomorphisms. (Did I spell that correctly?)

The Virginia Lanier books that all had 'Bloodhound' in the title. Very good series.

Murder Off the Books and Murder Takes the Cake by Gayle Trent both feature a private investigator with an Irish Wolf Hound. And gerald Hammond writes a series of mystery books about a dog breeder. They all have dog in the title.
