WATCH DOGS: THEIR TRAINING AND MANAGEMENT. By Lieut.-Col. E.H. Richardson. A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1923, this extremely scarce early work on Guard Dogs is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was Commandant of the British War Dog School during the Great War and was also responsible for several other books on War Dogs. Although he was familiar with the training and management of many different breeds, he will always be strongly associated with his favoured breed, the Airedale Terrier. The book's three hundred and sixteen pages contain sixteen Detailed chapters and are well illustrated with vintage photographs. The Story of the Watch-Dog. The Necessity for a Watch-Dog. Uses of a Watch-Dog. Purchasing a Dog. Training Dogs. Feeding, Exercising and Grooming. A Dog on its Travels. Breeding Dogs and Rearing Pups. The Dog's Health. Kenneling. Man-Tracking as a Protection. Dogs in the Great War. Dogs for the Police. British v. German Police Dogs. Etc. ",The first to welcome, the foremost to defend, Whose honest heart is still his master's own, Who labours, fights, loves, breathes for him alone.", Byron. This is a fascinating read for any historian or enthusiast of the Guard and Watch-Dog types, but especially for lovers of the Airedale Terrier. The book also contains much information and advice that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest dog books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
