Scottish Deerhound: Comprehensive Owner's Guide

Once called the "Scottish Highland Greyhound or Wolfdog," the Scottish Deerhound derives from fierce hunting dogs known in the Scotland in the 16th century. Today's elegant Deerhound is prized by fanciers for its decorum and gentle dignity, its great size and friendly temperament. Grand well describes this noble hunting dog, which was once employed to pull down a stag, and the breed's power, speed and endurance are evident at first glance. For the family with an appropriately large house, property and budget, the Deerhound makes an eager-to-please, good tempered "home addition." With its inborn nobility and regal appearance, the Scottish Deerhound turns any ordinary home into a castle. Author Juliette Cunliffe, sighthound enthusiast, judge and breeder, has provided an excellent introduction to the Scottish Deerhound with this Special Limited Edition. This comprehensive guide includes the history of the Deerhound in the UK and the US, a discussion of the breed's characteristics and standard, a chapter on puppy selection, care and rearing. From the day you bring your puppy into your home through your Deerhound's senior years, this book guides you every step of the way. The author discusses house-training and obedience training as well as preventing (and solving) behavior problems. General maintenance, including feeding the Deerhound throughout his life, grooming and exercise, is carefully considered, as is the safety and preventive healthcare of the breed. Dr. Lowell Ackerman, in a special guest chapter, discusses the vital health topics that concern owners, including the selection of a qualified veterinarian, parasite control, inoculations, infectious diseases and more. For every owner of the "rough-haired greyhound," this new volume promises to be an invaluable resource for years to come.
