From hunting patterns to diversity, and training methods to classification, you'll find everything you ever wanted to know in this comprehensive study. To finish, a canine Directory offers extended profiles and portraits of a range of the most popular breeds. From first to last, this is a book that will prove irresistible to anyone curious about how the dog gained his prime position in the human world.

DOGS OF THE SHEPHERDS - A REVIEW OF THE PASTORAL BREEDS

DOGS OF THE SHEPHERDS - A REVIEW OF THE PASTORAL BREEDS

Author - David Hancock - Crowood Press

Dogs of the Shepherds is a book for all those who admire the most valuable of all the working dogs, the pastoral breeds: sheepdogs, cattle dogs and flock protection dogs, the indispensable farmer's servants and companion dogs for thousands of proud dog-owners across the globe.

Painstakingly researched and packed with information, this book is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition and dog care; it is very much a reflective review of the pastoral dogs' contribution to the working and companion dog scene. It is a searching examination of their past, their performance and their prospects in an increasingly urban society.

SPORTING TERRIERS - THEIR-FORM, THEIR FUNCTION AND THEIR FUTURE

SPORTING TERRIERS - THEIR-FORM, THEIR FUNCTION AND THEIR FUTURE

Author - David Hancock - Crowood Press

This book is about sporting terriers, that much-loved, quintessentially British, quite admirable group of dogs, favoured for centuries by the more humble type of hunter. Sporting Terriers is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition and dog care; it is a celebration of terriers' contribution to the sporting scene, an examination of their form, their function and their future in an increasingly urban society.

Painstakingly researched and brimming with information, it covers the emergent terrier breeds and foreign ones, as well as the long-established pedigree breeds of the show ring. If you do not want a book that merely lazily repeats all the old terrier breed myths and you are seeking something more challenging and thought-provoking, then this is the book for you.

David Hancock's earlier books have been highly praised and when reviewing one of his previous volumes, the revered working terrier expert, the late Brian Plummer described it as 'a masterpiece'.

The magazine, Dogs in Canada, said that his last book, Sporting Terriers, 'has the quality of a classic'.

SIGHTHOUNDS - THEIR FORM, THEIR FUNCTION AND THEIR FUTURE

SIGHTHOUNDS - THEIR FORM, THEIR FUNCTION AND THEIR FUTURE

Author - David Hancock - Crowood Press

Sighthounds - Their Form, Their Function and Their Future is not another manual covering nutrition, training, breeding, care and maintenance; rather, it is a celebration of the cursorial hunting dogs, those using speed and sight to hunt for man's cooking pot for over three millennia. Meticulously researched, it covers both British and foreign breeds, including some that are hardly known, covering their sporting past and arguing strongly for a sporting future for them.

David Hancock challenges those who claim these dogs hunt solely by sight, describing their subtle use of scent and stressing their quite remarkable hearing as a hunting tool. His earlier books have been highly praised with one North American reviewer describing him as 'perhaps the most important living writer on dogs'

IRISH NATIVE BREEDS

IRISH NATIVE BREEDS

When it comes to dogs, Ireland boasts a broad and diverse range of breeds whose origins are uniquely Irish. From the iconic Irish Wolfhound to the lesser-known Glen of Imaal Terrier, the native dogs of Ireland are ancient breeds with diverse histories and mythologies.

With nine Irish breeds in total - four terriers, three gun dogs and two hounds - each breed evolved and developed specific characteristics to assist them in the daily life of an Ireland long past. Not only working dogs, they also formed an integral part of Irish family life and proved to be superb companion animals. From their humble beginnings, it was in the early 20th century that these native dogs were increasingly connected with Irish Nationalism and became symbols of Ireland’s Celtic past.

This book provides a pictorial look at all of our native breeds, each one an intrinsic part of our rich heritage. These dogs are to be treasured and protected as a vital piece of our historical inheritance.
