ABOUT THE BOOK

Keeshonds (pronounced kayz-hawndz) are medium-sized dogs with sturdy figures, dramatic two-layer coats and richly plumed tails. Their friendly temperament combined with their outgoing and affectionate nature makes them an excellent choice of pet.

The history of the Keeshond makes for interesting reading. According to the American Kennel Club, the breed descended from the Arctic strains found in the Samoyed, the Norwegian Elkhound and the Chow Chow, and changed little over the last two centuries. Originally known as the German Spitz, Keeshonds were particularly popular in Holland during the late 18th century, serving as watchdogs on riverboats and farms. Later, Keeshonds were thrust into the public eye by the leader of the Dutch Patriot political party, Kees de Gyselaer. He gave Keeshonds their new name, thanks to his ownership of a dog named Kees.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Its critical that owners properly socialize any puppy. The socialization process promotes emotional health in your dog and ensures the physical safety of the people and other animals he comes into contact with over the course of his life. You should endeavor to introduce your dog to a wide variety of people, dogs, other animals, sounds and environments at an early age. A socialized Keeshond is a happier, more confident dog and less prone to hypersensitivity to loud and/or unfamiliar sounds.

Keeshonds in particular are naturally cautious and sensitive to loud and/or unfamiliar sounds, so its imperative that you devote plenty of time to the socialization process from an early age.

The process of socializing your Keeshond should begin by introducing him to many different people. One trick is to ask strangers to pet him and offer a small treat (that you give them). The people you introduce your puppy to should also include well-behaved children, although such interactions should always be properly supervised.
