Author Juliette Cunliffe, sighthound enthusiast, judge and breeder, has provided an excellent introduction to the Scottish Deerhound with this Special Limited Edition. This comprehensive guide includes the history of the Deerhound in the UK and the US, a discussion of the breed's characteristics and standard, a chapter on puppy selection, care and rearing. From the day you bring your puppy into your home through your Deerhound's senior years, this book guides you every step of the way. The author discusses house-training and obedience training as well as preventing (and solving) behavior problems. General maintenance, including feeding the Deerhound throughout his life, grooming and exercise, is carefully considered, as is the safety and preventive healthcare of the breed. Dr. Lowell Ackerman, in a special guest chapter, discusses the vital health topics that concern owners, including the selection of a qualified veterinarian, parasite control, inoculations, infectious diseases and more. For every owner of the "rough-haired greyhound," this new volume promises to be an invaluable resource for years to come.
