4.0 out of 5 stars A good all-rounder 5 Aug 2010
This book contains the same amount of information as the three other lhasa apso publications i've read rolled into one.

great for someone interested in getting a lhasa apso. covers all aspects of choosing one to lifelong care specific to the lhasa apso breed which is not covered in generic books about dogs. also gives information on the history of the breed, characteristics and show standards.

Full of very good, big pictures. Gives information on finding breeders, further reference sources and reccomends other books.

only downside is that training terms and references to certain training/organisations are american, so those interested in these will have to look elsewhere if living outside of america.

overall a great allround source of information I would reccomend for someone interested in the breed, and a book I will often refer to during the course of my dogs life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Resource 7 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Nancy does a nice job of educating new owners on how to raise and care for their Lhasas in this book. She covers everything from picking a pup to grooming, traveling and basic health care and diseases. The Lhasa's personality traits are covered nicely as well. The pictures are entertaining and helpful. I highly recommend this book to new Lhasa Apsos owners or others researching the breed.
