1 Review
Titles in Barron's popular series of Pet Handbooks are filled with reliable information and helpful advice on animal care. Written by breeders, veterinarians, and other pet experts, these photo-illustrated books instruct on housing, feeding, healthcare, and where applicable, grooming. Titles devoted to dog breeds also discuss exercise needs and training methods. Barron's Pet Handbooks resemble Barron's alternate series, the Pet Owners' Manuals, but each of the Handbooks has a larger page count and includes more detailed advice and instruction.

What a great find this book is! The pictures are splendid, and it is filled with information and anecdotes. You can absolutely feel the author knows his subject and loves these animals. Absolutely worth every cent.
