About this title

Synopsis:

Unmistakably unique in his crisp coat colored in mustard or pepper, the Dandie Dinmont Terrier cuts a silhouette without compare in dogdom. His large, distinctive head crowned with a silky topknot; his full, round eyes, revealing intelligence and sensitivity; and his long, low, shapely body, and short legs add to the breed’s unmistakable distinction and purity. Although the Dandie is counted among the gamest of working terriers, the breed’s gentleman-like ways, independent spirit, and special brand of dignified affection recommend him as a charming companion dog for all experienced dog owners. Author Betty-Anne Stenmark, one of the doyennes of the breed in the United States, a highly regarded breeder and judge, begins this Comprehensive Owner’s Guide with a detailed chapter on the breed’s origins in England and the United States, featuring many historical photographs of important dogs. As only a lifelong Dandie lover can do, the author conveys the ineffable spirit and temperament of her favorite dog in an enjoyable chapter on the breed’s characteristics, which all newcomers to the breed will find enlightening and entertaining. The AKC breed standard is presented alongside the author’s expert analysis, making this book indispensable to all serious Dandie students.

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 obedience are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. Guest author Emma Greenway, a Dandie expert and breeder from down under, provides two excellent sections on the proper grooming of the Dandie and training the puppy for show. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume.. The 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.
