Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The energetic canine described in this title is best known as a team-working sled dog, but he also makes a friendly and loyal pet. This book belongs to Barron's extensive line of Complete Pet Owner's Manuals. Heavily illustrated with color photos and instructive line art, these books present information on housing, feeding, health care, the title animal's traits--and where applicable, on grooming, training, and breeding. Each book is individually written by a trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. The titles cover virtually all animals that are kept as pets, and include a wide selection of dog and cat breeds, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians, small mammals, and even some insects and arachnids.

Synopsis:

The most extensive line of basic pet information and training guides on the market, Complete Pet Owner's Manuals currently include more than 60 titles devoted to most of the AKA-recognized dog breeds, as well as other commonly owned breeds. All books are profusely illustrated with full-color photos and instructive, high-quality line art. They are written in clear, direct language that will appeal to ordinary pet owners, but they also contain information that even experienced breeders and trainers will find enlightening. Each manual is individually written by an experienced breeder, trainer, veterinarian, or qualified expert. Here is virtually everything dog lovers need to know about feeding, grooming, training, and keeping a healthy pet — as well as valuable information on the traits of individual breeds.
