Here are more specifics,

History of the Mastiff

Rules of Renaissance Coursing


History of the Irish Wolfhound

These should narrow it down a bit for you, I also have a multitude of books on my shelf (most out of print unfortunately) because like I said animals are my thing

That's a lot of interesting articles!  But most of them look like they're about Stone Age cultures or North American finds, which isn't much use for us in the SCA.

Could you narrow the list down a bit?

Which of them cover the uses of dogs in SCA period/cultures?

It's the specific details that are really interesting.  Saying that people in the Middle Ages used dogs in every walk of life is like saying people in the Middle Ages ate all sorts of foods and prepared them in various ways.  

And if we're going to create/re-create canine games and activities, the more specifically we can understand exactly how dogs were used in period, the better.
