Synopses & Reviews
Widely respected by dog experts, Barron's Dog Bibles are breed-specific books that present veterinarian-approved advice and information on all aspects of canine care. First-time dog owners will learn what they should look for when choosing a puppy. They'll also find detailed descriptions of their chosen breed's traits, history, behavior characteristics, potential health problems, and recommended training methods, as well as information on how breed-specific traits can influence the relationship between dog and owner. This title focuses on the Siberian Husky, an independent dog who needs regular training, though he is especially receptive to positive reinforcement methods. Originally bred as sled dogs, Huskies are physically active by nature, and when kept as pets they require frequent exercise. Books in this series have hidden spiral bindings and feature many attractive and informative color photos. The DVD enclosed with each book presents an informal dog training course that has proved especially enlightening to new owners.
