Inhaltsangabe: A useful reference book to help Running Dog owners prepare their dogs for a healthy life whether that involves strenuous work, competition or as companion animals. Written in a down to earth style, it tells how to rear Lurchers and Sighthounds; to avoid injury; to recognise specific types of injury; to treat them yourself and when to see the vet.
Über den Autor: Penny Taylor lives with her partner, Andy, in Cambridgeshire where they keep and work lurchers, terriers and ferrets. During a lifetime spent with dogs Penny has spent the last 23 years refining and honing the skills which enable her lurchers to remain sound and healthy throughout their lives. She believes that good canine husbandry is both an art and a science; it is the maintenance of a healthy mind in a healthy body and as such, is not something that can be learnt overnight. Penny freely admits that she will never know everything there is to know about dogs and that the learning curve is a journey which no owner will ever finish so long as they keep their minds open. Penny is also a regular contributor to The Countryman's Weekly magazine writing on the subjects of training, health and working both dogs and ferrets. She has also maintained her own line of lurchers for many years.
Buchbeschreibung Skycat Publications. Sudbury, Suffolk. 2010 1st edition. 4to (188 x 254mm). Ppvi,226. Colour photographs by the author throughout. Green boards, spine titled in gilt. Fine new copy in dust-wrapper. Sports medicine and occupational health for the working longdog. Aimed at pure-bred hounds and lurchers alike, this is a useful, practical book which fills a void in the literature of the running dog. By virtue of their work, running dogs suffer from quite specific injuries and ailments. Veterinary works deal with dog health in general, whilst lurcher and sighthound books do not analyse working hounds' problems in such depth. Penny Taylor looks at what the hound in the field is up against and its physical effects. She suggests ways of avoiding harm in the first place and dealing with the problems which do inevitably arise. Chapters include; Exercise and conditioning; Muscles - function, strains, ruptures and treatment; Bones and joints; Feet - no foot, no dog; Skin; eyes, ears, noses and throats; Teeth; Nutrition; Bitches and their seasons; Parasites - internal and external; Stuff that can kill your dog; Housing; Mental health. A well thought-out book which will help even the experienced solve and avoid many problems: for the beginner, it shows exactly and systematically what you are exposing your dog to, in pictures as well as text - most of it things you would never dream of doing yourself. Most of the information in this book will also apply to working terriers. Many dramatic photographs. A really good book now available at a really good price. (Previous price £35.00).
