At last, a book about your pet that emphasizes total care, training and companionship! You'll not only learn about the specie-specific traits of your special pet you'll also learn what the world's like from your pet's perspective; how to feed, groom and keep your pet healthy; and how to enjoy your pet through training and activities you can do together. The German Shepherd Dog is written by a breed expert and includes a special chapter on training by Dr. Ian Dunbar, internationally renowned animal behaviorist, and chapters on getting active with your dog by long-time Dog Fancy magazine columnist, Bardi McLennan. Best of all, the book is filled with info-packed sidebars and fun facts to make caring for your pet easy and enjoyable.

Good book but too much info on agility. Jan. 30 2012
By JT - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We want to get a German Shepard so I thought this would be a good book to get info on the breed. It did give a good history but I found it too much info on agility corses. We just want a family dog and are not going to be doing extra sporting training.
Good starter book on GSD Aug. 6 2005

Format: Hardcover
Good starter book. We were looking for a little general knowledge before we commit. This provided it and has given us some confidence in our understanding of the GS breed. Overall pleased. Thanks!
