Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

30-minute training DVD contains bonus material specifically for your Basset Hound! Dog behavioral trainer Peggy Moran shows you how properly training your Basset Hound makes your best friend a Happy Healthy Pet for life.

"The clown of the dog world," the Basset Hound's greatest joy comes from making family and friends laugh—unless, of course, he's snoozing on the couch or following the scent of a rabbit. With his good temperament, stout stature, and signature floppy ears, he has earned a reputation for being a beloved companion and a trustworthy scent hound.

Packed with full-color photographs, this fun and practical guide gives you everything you need to make your relationship with your best friend even better. Inside, you'll find:

  • Characteristics to look for when choosing a Basset Hound

  • A list of supplies you'll need before you bring him home

  • Advice on grooming, feeding, and training

  • A reproducible pet-sitter chart to keep track of important information

A bonus DVD shows you that educating your Basset Hound positively is easier and more fun than you think. You'll learn how to teach your furry friend basic commands and tricks, correct inappropriate behaviors, and understand his unique personality.

Synopsis:

Originally bred to trail game with its sensitive nose, this laid-back, even-tempered breed was number 31 on the American Kennel Association's 2007 ranking of America's most popular dogs.

Synopsis:

At last, a book about your pet that emphasizes total care, training and companionship! You'll not only learn about the species-specific traits of your special pet, you'll also learn what the world's like from your pet's perspective; how to feed, groom and keep your pet healthy; and how to enjoy your pet through training and activities you can do together. The Basset Hound is written by a breed expert and includes a special chapter on training by Dr. Ian Dunbar, internationally renowned animal behaviorist, and chapters on getting active with your dog by long-time Dog Fancy magazine columnist Bardi McLennan. Best of all, the book is filled with info-packed sidebars and fun facts to make caring for your pet easy and enjoyable.
