Overview

Written by the leading authority on Belgian breeds and a renowned international judge, Dr. Robert Pollet, this new colorful volume dedicated to the Belgian Sheepdog offers a comprehensive look at the history, personality and physical characteristics of this strong and agile working dog. Few breeds boast the versatility of the Belgian Sheepdog: a herding dog, a guard dog, a top competition dog, a police and military dog, a search and rescue dog, a companion, a show dog-the roles and talents of this highly accomplished canine are nearly endless. With its long, straight, solid black coat, the Belgian Sheepdog makes an attractive, friendly companion, a vigilant watchdog and a vigorous performance dog for the right responsible owner.

Dr. Pollet, a Belgian native, has been judging the Belgian herding breeds for over 30 years and remains a passionate promoter. Readers will welcome Dr. Pollet's insightful look at the breed's history in Europe and North America as well as the breed's uses, abilities and character. From locating a responsible breeder and the selection of a puppy to rearing and raising the puppy, this Special Limited Edition is an excellent starting point for new owners, who will benefit from the book's chapters on house-training, problem-solving and obedience training. The complete care of the Belgian Sheepdog, including the feeding, grooming and conditioning of the breed, complemented by an excellent healthcare chapter by world-renowned veterinarian Dr. Lowell Ackerman, makes this book indispensable for every Belgian Sheepdog owner and devotee.
