"Collins Dog Owner's Guides" is a well-established series of illustrated, practical books for pedigree dog owners. Each book is written by a breeder or show judge, and the consultant vets to the series are John and Caroline Bower. The text is practical and authoritative and illustrated throughout with photographs of champion dogs and practical step-by-step photoguides to training. Each book is divided into three main sections: you and your dog - breed characteristics and behaviour; caring for your dog - practical information on feeding, training, grooming, exercising, breeding and showing; and healthcare and first aid.
