Originally published in 1925, this extremely rare early work on the Cairn Terrier is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was a highly respected breeder of the day. The book's 110 pages cover all aspects of the Cairn Terrier. Beginning with the history of the breed, it moves on to discuss buying, breeding, feeding and showing amongst many other topics. There is an interesting chapter on "The inter-breeding of Cairn and West Highland White Terriers" and Baroness Burton (a noted breeder, exhibitor and judge of the day) contributes 2 chapters - "Present-Day Cairns" and "The Show Cairn". There is also a "Standard description of the correct appearance and scale of points" and a host of excellent photos of famous dogs of the day. This is a fascinating read for any Cairn Terrier enthusiast or historian of the breed and also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. CONTENTS INCLUDE: - ORIGIN AND EARLY HISTORY - PROGRESS AND DELINEATION - CLUBS AND THE STANDARD OF POINTS - PRESENT-DAY CAIRNS - THE SHOW CAIRN - INTERBREEDING OF CAIRN AND WEST HIGHLAND WHITE TERRIERS - HOW TO FORM A KENNEL - SELECTION OF STUD DOG AND MANAGEMENT OF BROOD BITCHES AND PUPPIES - HOUSING, REARING, FEEDING AND EXERCISING - SELECTION OF PUPPIES, CARE OF COAT AND PREPARATION FOR SHOWS, WITH HINTS ON RING CRAFT - SYMPTOMS AND TREATMENTS OF COMMON AILMENTS
