The world’s most popular terrier, the West Highland White Terrier is famous for his snow-white coat and his delightful personality. Known the world over as the Westie,” this Scottish breed has cast its spell on dog lovers on every continent. This Comprehensive Owner’s Guide begins with a history of the terriers from the Land of Scots, retelling how breed type developed and how this one-of-a-kind all-white dog rose to favor. Confirming the breed’s large international following, the chapter traces the breed’s exportation to the United States, Canada, Australia, and beyond. The characteristic chapter describes the Westie’s personality, physical traits, and special requirements, providing excellent evidence that this cute, apartment-sized, filled with personality-plus and very active” purebred dog happily fits into every home that welcomes him with open, loving arms.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
