9781582451671: Yorkshire Terrier Today (Dog Breed Books)

The story of Little Big Dog

The history of the Yorkshire Terrier is truly a rags to riches saga. Originally bred as a ratter, the earliest Yorkies were considerably larger than the glamorous little dogs we are familiar with today, but they were working terriers that provided both sanitation and sport for the Scottish weavers who bred them in England's industrial north. Now a world authority on the breed traces her favorite from its humble beginnings to its emergence as the canine epitome of style. In fourteen chapters, the whole story of the Yorkshire is charmingly told. Chapters on origin, history and standard join discussions of puppies, rearing, showing and breeding. Of particular excellence is the chapter on grooming, so essential to the health and beauty of the Yorkie.

From the Inside Flap:

The Yorkshire Terrier Today
The Yorkshire Terrier, the undisputed glamor dog of the show ring, has become a worldwide favourite, admired for its wonderful good looks, and loved for its fearless, affectionate disposition. In this lavishly ? illustrated book of the breed, the author examines the Yorkie's origins, looking at the different terrier breeds that were used to create a small, courageous ratter, and a loyal companion. From these unlikely beginnings, the Yorkie soon found his place as family pet and show dog, and the breed's spread and development through the most influential kennels is traced. Advice is given on choosing a puppy, assessing a show prospect, and getting your home ready for the new arrival. Detailed information is given on caring for the Yorkie puppy, with comprehensive coverage of dietary needs from puppyhood, through adulthood, to the special needs of a veteran. The Breed Standard is analyzed, giving a detailed picture of the ?ideal? Yorkshire Terrier, and there is in-depth information on grooming, both for the pet Yorkie and the elaborate requirements of the show dog, illustrated with top-class color photography. Intelligent and eager to please, the Yorkie can be trained to a high standard, and tips are given on basic obedience training as well as the more specialized areas of Competitive Obedience and Mini-agility. Illustrated with over 150 color photos, this is a book for the true Yorkshire Terrier enthusiast.
