Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Modern dogdom was inaugurated in 1873 with the establishment of the Kennel Club (London). The initiative to breed existing breeds closely to standards and to create new standardized breeds from a restricted foundation stock spread like a running fire. Within one or two decades national kennel organizations arose. Today about 100 countries world-wide have one or more national canine co-ordinating bodies all claiming to promote in their own way the welfare and well-being of the purebred dog.

Inhaltsangabe: This book delves into the world of the purebred dog, and where it is going in regards to health and the best interest of the dogs themselves. Heretofore, dogs have been bred to satisfy human goals and ambitions, but to what detriment? When the British first started their Kennel Club just over 100 years ago, and the first dog show was held, little was known about the genetics of dogs. It was assumed that when you bred the best to the best, the result was something even better. Unfortunately, this naïve ideal has led to the downfall of dogs, with a large percentage of all dog breeds being plagued with either a genetic disability, or an inherited disability. The question is, can the damage already done be repaired?
In SOS Dog: The Purebred Dog Hobby Re-Examined, authors Edith and Johan Gallant have addressed this very issue. The authors devote a chapter to the history of the dog, and how they came into the human household, and then continue with a description of the needs of the dog. They outline and detail the seven capital sins of the dog world and compare modern dog to the pariah type dogs found throughout the world that still abide by natural law. In closing, they offer suggestions of what may be done to repair the damage done by over 100 years of breeding incorrectly.
Über den Autor:
Edith and Johan Gallant have been involved in the dog world since 1975, and actively bred and showed Giant Schnauzers in Europe and Africa. This has included conformation showing, obedience and working trials, and judging.
In the early 1990's, as they were traveling through the southern Africa region, they became fascinated with the native African dogs, which previously they had believed as unworthy of attention as they did not come from show dogs. In becoming more familiar with these dogs, the natural dogs, they came to realize how far off track modern dogs have gone. This was the inspiration of the book, SOS Dog: The Purebred Dog Hobby Re-Examined.
