This Special Rare-Breed Edition” on the Leonberger is the most comprehensive new owner’s guide available on the lion of the dog world.” A relative newcomer to the American Kennel Club, the Leonberger has been a European favorite for years, revered for his impressive size (over 30 inches at the shoulder), his long mane of a coat, and his tawny, golden coat. The Leonberger is a unique German creation, a dog that is as courageous and handsome as the king of the jungle but also a mild-mannered, affectionate home companion. He is prized as a watchdog as his roar is bigger than his bite and his much-loved family is well protected when the Leo is on duty.

New owners and those intrigued by this handsome German breed will welcome the information provided on selection of a puppy, training, feeding, and general maintenance. The chapters on history, characteristics, and the breed standard prove an ideal introduction to breed. The author, Madeline Lusby, is a Leo breeder and owner, and her many anecdotes and first-hand experience with Leonbergers provide valuable insight into the temperament and inner workings of the breed.

Subsequent chapters offer helpful information on shopping for puppy supplies, puppy-proofing the home, socialization, housetraining, basic obedience lessons, feeding, coat care and more. The health chapter discusses parasite prevention, inoculations, and finding the most qualified veterinarian for a giant breed. Sidebars throughout offer helpful advice to readers about dozens of topics. Fully indexed.
