No longer a well-kept secret in the United States, the American Bulldog is enjoying a renaissance of interest around the world. Undeniably handsome and athletic, this magnificent bulldog, once used solely for farm and ranch work, is now employed as a working protection dog and a loyal home companion. Author Abe Fishman provides a controversial but thoroughly accurate retelling of the breed’s history and its recreation in the US. His experience with the breed and his candor prove both enlightening and uncompromising, as he recommends proper training, conditioning and rearing techniques for all American Bulldog owners. From the insightful chapter about the breed’s characteristics to the advice-packed sections on puppy selection, house-training, obedience work and solving puppy problems, this new Comprehensive Owner’s Guide proves to be an excellent addition to every bully breed lover’s library. In addition to chapters discussing everyday care, feeding and home safety, the book also includes a reliable, up-to-date chapter on preventive healthcare, covering the selection of a veterinarian, parasite control, vaccinations and preventive care, written by Harvard lecturer and popular veterinarian, Dr. Lowell Ackerman. Illustrated with many remarkable color photographs, this volume brings this bright and agile canine athlete to life. For the right family seeking an active, trainable and good-looking guard dog and pet, the American Bulldog will not fail to delight.
