Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen: Comprehensive Owners Guide

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, or PBGV as the breed is usually called, is an ancient wirehaired basset breed of France that continues to gain popularity in the US and around the world. This beguiling hound is aptly called the "Happy Breed" due to his sunny disposition and his ever-wagging tail, sure to cheer up his owners even on their bluest days. Breeders prize the PBGV's tousled appearance, robust construction and his lively bearing. He is not only a home companion with class and style, he is also an active weekend sports dog, a bold hunter, a naturally attractive show dog and a talented performance dog. Written by foundation PBGV breeder and well-known author Jeffrey G. Pepper, this book offers readers insight into the breed's character and temperament. Not the breed for everyone, the PBGV is an independent spirit who uses his loud resonant voice as freely as a French revolutionary. This Special Limited Edition provides an excellent history of the breed's development in France and its arrival to the US, as well as coverage of the breed standard, puppy selection and care. Fully detailed chapters also present advice on house-training and obedience training, solving puppy problems and home safety. A special chapter on preventive healthcare, written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman, discusses selecting a veterinarian, inoculations, infectious diseases, parasites and other vital topics every owner needs to know.
