Overview

Pointer by Richard G. Beauchamp

An aristocrat bred for sports afield, the Pointer is the quintessential hunting dog, pure-bred in origin and unmistakable for his passion in the field. Bred and hunted in Britain for hundreds of years, this is a graceful, symmetrical and strong sporting dog. The Pointer is congenial and alert, making a terrific pet, a fine watchdog and an active weekend sports pal. Endowed with dignity, kindness and nobility, the Pointer possesses all of the desirable characteristics of a devoted companion dog. This Special Limited Edition serves as an excellent introduction to the Pointer, including a special section on the breed in the United States written by guest author WAYNE G. CAVANAUGH, and a lively chapter on the breed's characteristics and personality. Author Richard G. Beauchamp, respected dog show judge and breeder, also discusses the selection of a puppy, introducing the puppy to your safe home, house-training and obedience lessons. All of the basics of care and maintenance are detailed, including feeding the Pointer throughout his life, grooming, exercise and conditioning. Spectacular color photographs accompany a special chapter on preventive healthcare written by world-renowned veterinarian Dr. Lowell Ackerman, including such vital topics as selecting a veterinarian, spaying/neutering and preventing the onset of parasites and infectious diseases. Whether you are a newcomer to the Pointer or a long-time owner, this new volume will be a treasured addition to your dog-book shelf.
