The dog modeling is as basic as it gets. Unless you do that, no offense, but you won't be able to do almost anything else.

in my opinion i strongly recommend investing on those digital tutor tutorial dvds. I know they're a little pricy but you just learn the program so much faster imho.

better idea. Maya comes with a default set of help files and tutorials. they are extreemly simple and very useful.
Follow the "Poly Modeling: Hammer" tutorial. A good way to start modeling is to start with a cube and use the editPolygons>extrude face tool to create low poly, base shapes, then use subdevides and smooths to create great looking models.:blush:
