American Working Terriers

Front Cover, 2006 - 280 pages
1 Review
Practical, common sense, terrier work for the beginner, laid out in a clear no-nonsense style with chapters on the history of working terriers in Europe and America, along with sections on introducing young dogs to work, tools, technique, American terrier quarry, hazards, and veterinary care for working dogs. The sections on veterinary care and tools alone will save most people more money than the cost of this book, while the tips on digging, locator collars, skunk toxic shock, and handling quarry at the end of a dig, may save you more than money. This is a book on working terriers, but if you show, breed or judge any type of working terrier you need to read chapters one, two and four, not only to understand the true history of working terriers in Great Britain and the United States, but also to understand why (and how) show judges have selected for linked structural characteristics that have resulted in breed after breed disappearing from the working field. 270 pages, with 80 photos and illustrations.
