To get information about showing dogs and all that is required ?
Going for the Blue by Roger Caras (voice of Westminster for many many years):
I just read this book and the following one on breeding:
Road to Westminster, How to Select & Train a Purebred Dog & Prepare It for the Show Ring
Robert B. Freeman and Toni C. Freeman
The show and breed Clumber Spaniels but the books are easy reads, good info and interesting. I have read other books, and these are really nice for beginners.
Scotty's breeder recommends these books:
- Raising A Champion, A Beginners Guide to Showing Dogs by A. Meredith John and Carole L. Richards. Note: Available through Dogwise
- Winning with Purebred Dogs, by Dr. Alvin Grossman and Beverly Grossman. Note: Available through Dogwise
I have not read either of the above books. I'm reading "Reaching for the Stars" by Mary Roslin Williams, and I'm fascinated. I would highly recommend this book.
Mary R Williams book is known world wide - excellent resource.
