Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new title in Barron's series of Dog Bibles focuses on Boxers. These dogs are active and easy to care for, but they should get regular exercise. Good-natured and friendly, they fit easily into family life, where they get along well with children and other household pets. Barron's Dog Bibles present veterinarian-approved advice and information on specific dog breeds. Each book describes the title breed's traits, history, behavior characteristics, and recommended training methods. Written especially for first-time owners, Barron's Dog Bibles advise readers on what to look for when choosing a puppy, explain how breed-specific traits influence the relationship between dog and owner, and describe potential breed-specific health problems to look out for. Attractive sidebars present fun facts, helpful hints, and quick tips on training. A hidden spiral binding ensures that the book will stay open and flat at any desired page. The DVD enclosed with each book presents an informal dog training course for new owners. It describes housetraining methods, walking dogs on a leash, and teaching obedience using hand signals and vocal commands. Each book is filled with attractive color photos.
