DOGS IN MOTIONDOGS IN MOTION

Author - Dr Martin Fischer - Publisher - VDH

Launched at the FCI Centenary Winner Show, and now available exclusively through OUR DOGS at shows and through our online bookshop, this book for the first time shows the locomotion of dogs in a completely new light. It is based on a study funded by the Society for the Promotion of Canine Research and VDH member associations and conducted under the leadership of Professor Dr. Martin Fischer in Jena.

The combination of the book, the DVD and the web site takes us to new levels of information and accessibility and each book contains a slip giving the reader a personal access code to the website.

The dog’s anatomy is illustrated in a fascinating way using innovative pictorial language, showing the correlation of the skeleton, muscular system and locomotion. The most extensive study in the world on over 300 dogs from 32 different breeds produces radically new insights into the movements of dogs. The enclosed DVD with over 400 film clips, X-rays and 3D animations demonstrates the diversity and uniformity of canine locomotion with a precision and vividness never achieved before. The book is available in both German and English.

OWNERS OF ALL BREEDS, JUDGES, VETS, VET NURSES WILL FIND THIS BOOK an invaluable and long lasting reference work.
