9780764196362: Parson and Jack Russell Terriers (Barron's Dog Bibles)

This energetic breed thrives in the outdoors and needs space and regular exercise. Eager to please, the Parson Jack Russell Terrier responds well to training, but should never be left alone for long periods of time. The titles in BarronÂ’s Dog Bibles series provide detailed information on specific breeds--their traits, history, behavior characteristics, and recommended training methods. Prospective buyers are instructed on what to look for when choosing a puppy, how breed-specific traits influence the relationship between dog and owner, and potential health problems to look out for in specific breeds. Each book also includes detailed information and advice on:

  • Everyday canine care, grooming, and exercise
  • Nutrition and health maintenance
  • Training and play activities

    Sidebars appear throughout the pages of each book with breed facts, helpful hints, and quick tips on training. A hidden spiral binding ensures that the book will stay open and flat at any desired page. The DVD enclosed with each book presents an informal dog training course for new owners. It describes house training methods, walking dogs on a leash, and teaching obedience to hand signals and vocal commands. More than 150 color photos.
