    Not so good

    Only the first part of the book covered the French bulldog. The second part was not breed specific. I would not recommend.

    A must-have for any new owner.

    Simply stated, any newcomer to the world of French Bulldogs needs this book. Kathy Dannel provides a concise, thorough overview of the basics of owning and living with the breed. I do have two main quibbles with the book, neither one nearly strong enough to lose it a star. First, no index. That's OK; it's an overview, not so much a reference book. Second, the last third of the book is strictly generic information, mostly training-related. Although the book fails to address specific problems one might have in training a Frenchie, at the very least it introduces the reader to Dr. Ian Dunbar, whose choke-collar-less training program is an excellent place for most Frenchie owners to start. (Choke collars are particularly controversial for Frenchies, due to their sensitive trachea and closeness to the ground [bad angle for collar corrections].) But hey, if this is what keeps the costs down on a book with lots of color pictures and ninety- some pages of relevent, original material in a hardcover edition, then more power to them! There are other omissions (to name a couple: no mention of the training collar controversy I've mentioned above; in one of the two discussions of permanent identification, there is no mention of tattooing, and no mention whatsoever of the potentials for microchip failure -- migration, scanner incompatibility, etc.), but most owners will be exposed to these nuances as they proceed through life with their pet. This book serves as an excellent (and unique in print at this time, to the best of my knowledge) introduction to a very particular breed.

    Great Frenchie book! We needed it!

    As a breeder of Frenchies, I endorse this book and plan to recommend this book to ALL my puppy buyers.
