Tuotekuvaus

The "gentleman's gentleman," the English Setter is a regal and elegant sporting dog whose attractive flecked coat and natural field talents make him a highly desirable choice among purebred dogs. Polite, friendly, and good-natured, the English Setter possesses an even temperament and love of his people that make him shine as a companion dog. Although original bred for the specific task of assisting hunters in locating birds, the breed today is an all-rounder excelling in many fields beyond the hunting grounds. Beginning with the setter's development in England, this Comprehensive Owner's Guide presents a complete history of the breed including a detailed section about the important kennels and show dogs in America (from Adonis, the first dog to be registered with the AKC, to the breed's most famous show dog, Ch. Rock Falls Colonel, the winner of 100 Best in Show awards). The chapter on characteristics offers a description of the breed's physical attributes, personality, and health concerns, all vital information for owners deciding whether the English Setter is the ideal dog for him or her.

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 author's 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.
