Synopses & Reviews
This new title in Barron's series of Dog Bibles focuses on Golden Retrievers. These dogs are well mannered, easy to train, and gentle with children. Golden Retrievers are working dogs and rank in the top five for canine intelligence, so it is important for owners to keep these fine dogs both mentally and physically challenged. 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.
