It is written for all levels of knowledge in a non-patronising way that imparts knowledge and instills confidence in the reader and also shows a love and respect of the subject. This book is widely recommended by many courses on dogs, quite deservedly so.
Canine Terminology Mar 30, 2007
What a book! For anyone in the dog industry, I found this book of canine terminology fascinating. I love it! To me it's the "Dog Dictionary". As I'm fairly new to the industry this book will certainly bring me up to speed.
Canine knowledge Dec 24, 2004
If you can have only one book on canine terminology and structure, this is it. Thorough, interesting and well illustrated. It will help anyone understand breed standards and breeders' "dog talk".
