Overview

One of Belgium’s most prized herding dogs, the Belgian Tervuren excels in countless arenas as a shepherd’s dog, a working guard dog, a top competition dog, a police and military dog, a search and rescue dog, a companion and a show dog. For the right owners, this extraordinary dog can prove to be the most rewarding canine companion in the world. Written by distinguished international judge Dr. Robert Pollet, this Special Limited Edition dedicated to the Belgian Tervuren offers a complete portrait of this attractive and highly accomplished herding breed, revered for its versatility and fairly limitless trainability. The author, a recognized authority on all Belgian breeds, has been judging the Belgian Tervuren for over 30 years and remains a devoted promoter of Belgium’s native pure-breds. Readers will benefit from Dr. Pollet’s insightful look at the breed’s history in Europe and the United States as well as his thorough examination of the breed’s characteristics, the breed standard and the basic requirements of ownership. Newcomers to the Tervuren will learn how to seek out a well-bred, healthy Tervuren puppy and how to raise, train and care for the dog at all life stages. Discussing canine healthcare, Dr. Lowell Ackerman, a respected veterinarian and author, updates readers on vaccinations, parasite control, infectious diseases and other topics vital to a dog’s ongoing health. Illustrated with over 130 color photographs that readers will find informative and attractive, this book is a must for any Tervuren lover’s library.
