|Courageous of heart, active and game, this little working
terrier known as the Border Terrier delights his owners with
his friendly, happy disposition as well as his unwavering
work ethic. Historically bred to follow the horses on the
hunt, this is an energetic, purposeful terrier that is smart
and resourceful, requiring an owner who can keep up with
his quick mind and body. Author Muriel P. Lee, terrier
judge and breeder, has provided an excellent introduction
to the Border Terrier in this new Special Limited Edition.
This comprehensive guide includes the history of the
breed in England and the US, a discussion of the breed’s
characteristics and standard, a chapter on puppy
selection, care and rearing. The author also discusses
house-training and obedience training plus preventing
(and solving) behavior problems. General maintenance,
including feeding the Border throughout his life, grooming
and exercise, is carefully considered, as is the preventive
healthcare of the breed.
Dr. Lowell Ackerman, in a special guest chapter, discusses
the vital health topics that concern owners, including the
selection of a qualified veterinarian, parasite control,
vaccinations, infectious diseases and more. For every
owner of this fun, active terrier, this new colorful guide
promises to be an invaluable resource for years to come.
