Dog by Linda Case

Book Description

Now completed updated in this new edition, here is the definitive book on a cherished member of 38 per cent of households in the United States. "The Dog" is a comprehensive guide to four areas of compelling interest: the bond between dogs and humans; canine behavior; canine health and disease; and, canine nutrition. Writing in a clear, understandable way, author Linda Case explains selective breeding, training principles, solutions to common behavior problems, preventive health care, and diet that will enhance the human-dog bond for owners. Distinctive figures and tables, complete lists of current references plus suggested readings, and a glossary aid comprehension. More in-depth than most dog books available, "The Dog" fills a need for a text in undergraduate companion animal courses, veterinary technician courses, and dog care/training courses and is an indispensable resource for professional breeders, trainers, exhibitors, and veterinary clinicians.
