Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dating back to Biblical times, the Canaan Dog enjoys the distinction of being the worlds oldest new dog breed! The national dog of Israel, the Canaan Dogs ancestors once served as herding dogs for the Israelites flocks. Author Joy Levine has written excellent introductory chapters on the breeds history in Israel, England, and the United States as well as the breeds characteristics as a companion and working dog. The chapter on the breed standard, illustrated by Patricia Peters, offers a clear picture of the desired physical conformation of this unique Herding breed, useful for both newcomers and experienced breeders.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The authors advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
