Dog in Actionby McDowell Lyon
Written In 1950, The Dog In Action was the first book to thoroughly analyze, illustrate and explain the under-the-skin workings of the dog. Whether looking at a Pom or Pointer, McDowell Lyon showed the dog breeder, fancier and judge that the principles of movement applied to all. The Dog In Action has inspired generations of dog breeders and judges to watch more carefully, to put aside preconceived notions of how the dog "should" work and to learn from what their eyes tell them. While some of Lyon's theories have since been disproved, the book still deserves to be in the serious dog person's library because it is the foundation for all gait and locomotion books which have since been written.
