Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This very active, short-legged breed is best suited to dog owners who are outdoors enthusiasts and can give their pet open spaces for roaming. Barron's extensive line of Complete Pet Owner's Manuals presents information for non-specialist animal owners and prospective owners, with facts about each animal's origins and traits, as well as advice on purchasing, housing, feeding, health care, and much more. Each book is individually written by a trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. Titles in this series cover every popular breed of dog and cat, freshwater and marine fish, many bird varieties, and virtually all other animals that are kept as pets. All books are filled with handsome color photos and instructive line illustrations.

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.
