Overview

This Comprehensive Owner’s Guide to the Basset Fauve de Bretagne is the only publication available dedicated to this French scenthound breed. While the breed’s popularity is currently in the shadows of two other French bassets (the Basset Hound and the PBGV), the Basset Fauve de Bretagne is full of character and determination, serving his owners well as a hunting dog and family companion. Named for his fawn-colored coat, the Basset Fauve stands high above his low-to-the-ground brethren in personality and courage. Written by the late Evan L. Roberts, the first breeder to import the Basset Fauve into England, this volume traces the breed’s origins in native France, following it to the shores of England and beyond. Roberts continues with a chapters on characteristics and the breed standard encapsulating all of the virtues of this sweet-natured hound breed, offering sound advice about which owners are best suited to the breed.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a 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 handsome Malamute adults and puppies bursting with personality! In all, there are over 135 photographs in this compact, useful, and entertaining volume. The author’s advice on obedience training the at-times stubborn Basset Fauve will help readers better mold and train their dogs into good canine citizens. The extensive chapter on healthcare written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Chapters on the special care of senior dogs and remedies to tackle and prevent common behavior problems conclude the volume. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
