by Patsy Hollings

This 192 page book is aimed at anyone thinking of breeding dogs, whether just for the pleasure of rearing dogs at home or with a view to exhibiting, and underlines the responsibilities involved in reproducing a living being that will require a healthy, safe existence and the commitment of its owners for fourteen or more years of life. Patsy Hollings is the author of several books and articles on dog-related subjects, and has made frequent television and radio appearances. Since 1976, Patsy and her husband Stephen Hollings have been committed to producing sound, health Weimaraners that retain true breed characteristics, and bred the breed's record-winning brood bitch and all time top dog. They have bred over sixty-five UK champions.
