The Curly-Coated Retriever is a true specialized hunting dog that can outswim, outrun, and outclass any of the sporting breeds. Prized for his mass of small crisp curls, colored in solid black or liver, the Curly-Coated Retriever is also the dog world's best kept secret, as his devoted fans attest. The breed is not only the oldest of the British gundog breeds, but it is also the most unique, bubbling with confidence, humor, and know-how. More independent than the other retrievers, the Curly is as smart, active, and loyal as anyone could ever desire. Retriever specialist and award-winning author Nona Kilgore Bauer has written this Comprehensive Owner's Guide to introduce the Curly to potential owners, surveying the breed's fascinating but muddy origins, examining the Curly's characteristics and personality, and giving sound advice about selecting, caring, and training this very special sporting dog.
New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author's advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
