Overview


This full-color owner’s guide to the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog is the most comprehensive introduction available about this versatile working dog. Although not as popular as his Swiss cousin, the Bernese Mountain Dog, the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog (or Swissy) shares the family tricolor hallmark—the black, tan, and white coat, good looks, and friendly temperament. New owners and those interested in exploring the Swissy will welcome the information provided on selection of a puppy, training, feeding, and general maintenance. The chapters on history, characteristics, and exhibitions demonstrate how intelligent and adaptable this “all-arounder” truly is, having been employed as a cart puller, herding dog, guard dog, competition dog, and family companion. The extensive chapter on healthcare by Dr. Lowell Ackerman provides everything a new owner needs to know about selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints for all owners of this active and handsome purebred dog.

    A Rare Find for GSMD Owners

    As a dog enthusiast, new to the GSMD in particular, I found it very difficult to locate a good breed-specific book. Many are general-purpose books, 90% common content, and only 10% having anything to do with the breed (often written by someone clearly not knowledgeable to this breed).

    This book has proven to be a pleasant surprise. The book -is- written specific to the breed by a knowledgeable author. The book is flush with quality photography. Except for the healthcare/veterinarian section, the entire book has at least one picture of a Swissy on each page. So it can work well as a coffee table book, too.

    If you're a breeder, you'll appreciate that the pages are a heavy-stock supporting quality appearance. Inside the rear cover is a dedication page on the left (last page) and entries to the right for birth date, breeder's name, address, and registration number, along with vet and vaccination record spaces. Could be considered a valued keepsake to provide your 'puppy people' as they take their new loves home.

    Overall, for it's purpose and intent, I highly recommend this book. I've seen none better specific to the GSMD (Greater Swiss Mountain Dog).
