Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
This is an excellent choice if you want to learn how to handle a German shepherd. Everything you need to know. Great advice. Amazing things I didn't know. This book was also recommended to me.

A well organised guide to raising a puppy by people who clearly know puppies well and lovingly. As useful for the regular breeder/buyer of puppies as it is for the first-timer, with lots of practical points and reminders, well expressed and repeated throughout the book, and avoiding soppy language and excessive emotionalism. Well done.

a deserved classic
This is an enormously informative and insightful book for people who want to *know* their dogs. Thorough, detailed and full of wisdom. You can't go wrong with this one. And of course it's very practical.
