The New Complete Portuguese Water Dog
When The Complete Portuguese Water Dog first appeared in 1986, it may have appeared like a voyage into uncharted waters to publish a book on a breed that had so recently faced the specter of complete extinction. In spite of the risks, the book was published, thrived and became the prime reference in the English language for this gallant canine sailor. As the assets of the Cão d'Áqua became known to an ever-widening circle of friends, the book became ever more important as a learning tool.
In The New Complete Portuguese Water Dog, author Kathryn Braund salutes the dogs in the limelight and also discusses the essentials of puppy and adult care, health issues, breeding, grooming, training for Obedience, Agility and Water Trials and gives fascinating insights into the "Portie" in other countries. In every way this exciting, new edition is a "must have" for every owner and admirer of this distinctive breed.
