5.0 su 5 stelle My Go-To on All Things Canine 13 gennaio 2012
Di DojoDiva - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Anytime I need an overview on basic dog breeds this is my go-to reference. I use it both to confirm my own observations and to learn about unfamiliar breeds. It has never failed to both educate and entertain. It begins with basic information on how to live successfully with canines. I like that Halliburton gives very accurate insights on negative traits of specific breeds and how to deal with them, including proper training of the Human. Unfortunately, some breeds are unrepresented, like my flat-coated retriever. I was, however, able to obtain a good description from the information on Newfies and Irish setters.

2.0 su 5 stelle Inaccurate, outdated and almost unbelievable 10 maggio 2008
Di C. DePaula - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I'm giving this book 2 stars because the premise of the book is good, it is somewhat entertaining, but oh my, this author's tone is presumptuous and condescending. She writes with a patronizing tone, and sees everything in black and white terms. In her breed sections she has stand-out sentences in Italics where she emphasizes a point with an exclamation point (which is already annoying in a book like this) and then she actually admits that she has "yelled" at the reader. Her information on Afghan hounds was suspect, as I know from reading many, many dog books that Afghan are notoriously hard to train. I had to laugh when she writes that Afghans are so trainable and intelligent so "don't stop at basic obedience." This is contrary to every single other book that I've read on breeds and dogs. The Afghan happens to come in dead last in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs book. The training methods are also outdated when more positive methods are successfully used. I don't like it at all when she suggests shaking a dog. In her book she doesn't have all breeds, and based on some gross inaccuracies, I don't trust it. The Dog Bible is a good dog breed book, and it contains training information as well. I heartily recommend Outwitting Dogs for training and anything by Patricia B. McConnell.

5.0 su 5 stelle Yes! Pugs are neither Border Collies nor Borzois 8 gennaio 2000
Di Kimberly Borrowdale - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
RAISING ROVER is definitely different from any other training book I've ever encountered, in that it concentrates on training tips and methods by breed of dog. In addition, I think it would be a marvelous book for would-be dog owners to peruse to help them decide which breed is right for them.
The book starts with a 95 page general training section, the usual housetraining, obedience, dog pack "pecking order," and problem solving. I always find it useful to read these sectiosn because each author/trainer (Halliburton is an animal behaviorist and trainer) has different methods and new viewpoints and tidbits to add. Halliburton includes a chapter called, "It's Okay, It's Okay" about the pitfalls of trying to comfort one's dog in times of stress such as visits to the vet, loud thunderstorms, strange people, and the like.
Then comes 175 pages of breed profiles--profiles of 87 of the most popular breeds (sorry, no Clumber Spaniel, Ibizan Hound, or Dogue de Bordeaux). The basis of these profiles is, of course, that well-bred purebred dogs (i.e. not bred willy-nilly at puppy mills--DO NOT buy from them or from pet stores!) have certain predictable behaviors for each breed, and particular ways of reacting, learning, and getting along with others.
Each profile includes:
What the dog was originally bred for: Basenjis were bred in Africa to act as guides to hunters and warn their human if there was a lion or some other dangerous animal in the vacinity.
Housetraining tips: you can't tell if a Bloodhoud pup needs to go out just because he's sniffing the floor, becauses he's *always* sniffing the floor and everything else; if your Bulldog pup starts sniffing the floor, whisk him outside immediately; Poodles are one of the easiest to housetrain.
Personality: Dachshunds can be problem barkers because they all think they're Mastiffs; Cocker Spaniels get along great with children and will happily follow them anywhere; Pekingese "have more guts than brains...wouldn't hesitate to protect you from a lion" (a Peke is a toy breed weighing no more than 15 pounds); "Vizslas are an odd mix of hardy hunter and nervous wreck."
Training: Boxers, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Rottweilers and Samoyeds are some of the breeds that need strong leadership from their human; "Borzois can be very bullheaded if you're asking them to do something they don't want to do or see no point in doing. On the other hand...these dogs are polite and well-mannered automatically;" regarding Border Collies, "There is very little you can't train this dog to do. And what you don't train Rover to do, he'll probably figure out for himself." (Then follows a great anecdote about a BC who learned out to get ice from the dispenser in the door of the refrigerator).
Environment needed, including active (Irish Setters) or sedate (Great Pyrenees), how they get along with children of various age groups (Chihuahuas are great with teenagers but not good with small children) and the elderly (Minature Pinscher), whether they can be latchkey dogs, whether they get along with other dogs in the household, if they can live happily in an apartment (yes, Great Danes can do it), how much exercise is required/tolerated.
Halliburton is also clear on the disadvantages of each breed: which tend to bark (Alaskan Eskimos, Pomeranians) dig (Alaskan Malamutes), drool (St. Bernards), and snore (Boston Terriers, Bulldogs, Pugs--of course when *my* Pug snores, it's a comforting lullaby to me, not a disadvantage at all!)
What if you have a mixed breed dog? Well, if you know that it's a Chow/Siberian Husky cross, you just read the profiles of those two breeds and observe your dog to see how they combine in him. If you get a dog from a shelter (a very commendable act!) and it seems to have some Doberman, German Shephard, and Golden Retriever, read about those breeds.
In the You Learn Something New Every Day department, here's something I've *never* heard of before: because Great Danes originated as a breed around 300-400 BC, the different colors (fawn, brindle, black, etc) have different temperaments. I wonder what the Great Dane people have to say about that.
Halliburton doesn't talk about a dog's size, grooming requirements, and that sort of thing because she's assuming you already have your dog, so for this reason this book isn't a great stand-alone guide to choosing a breed, but it's got a lot of insightful information on the subject, and can be exceptionally helpful in training.

1.0 su 5 stelle Falls Short on Many Points 29 agosto 2005
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I picked this book up at the local library intrigued with the idea of training to the breed. However, many of the points both within training principles and practices and breed characterizations were just plain bad (most of these errors have been pointed out previously). My number one pet peeve: she says not to bother socializing your dogs unless you are showing them because afterall, your dog wouldn't be going over to other dogs' houses for sleepovers and to watch the Superbowl. Excuse me? The very worst aggressive dogs (met a gorgeous 90 lbs German shepherd like this tonight in the park tonight while I was walking my two) are those who don't meet with lots of other dogs and lots of other people. They are the ones that are the lungers and snappers and God forbid if they get off their leash. She just says to walk the other way with your snarling canine. Shame on her. Socialization with other dogs and people is *absolutely* essential.

I would highly recommend "The Latchkey Dog: How the Way You Live Shapes the Behavior of the Dog You Love" by Jodi Andersen over this.
