5.0 out of 5 stars ENGLISH cocker Spaniel book - EXCELLENT, 9 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: English Cocker Spaniel: Dog Breed Expert Series (Hardcover)
A no-nonsense approach to owneing and carin for a cocker spaniel - the English variety.

Everything you could want to know is encapsulated into this one book, which you can read cover to cover or reference occasionally. None of it is patronising, and none of it assumes you are a five-star breeder, it manages to hit the mid-point of information perfectly. The picturea re good, and, more importanly, relevant, and the advice is sound.

In particular I loved the section on pack behaviour, how a pack of dogs or wolves would behave in a given situation and how you can use this to your advantage - eg training puppy to respect you as 'pack leader'. No, you don't have to get on all fours, bark or pee up a shrub to do this, you simply have to apply the sensible human approaches to your dog. In effect, this section teaches you how to speak dog - and my puppy gets the message!!!

Highly reccomended book. For the record this is NOT my first puppy, have had 6 of those in the past, this is the seventh, so even I learned something from this book that was of use to puppy care, and cocker spaniels DO need slightly different care to other breeds.
