Diet and exercise are given special attention and the Breed Standard is analysed, evaluating the conformation, temperament, coat, colour and movement of the 'ideal' St Bernard.
Tips are provided on preparing a St Benard for the show ring, as well as outlining training techniques for the show dog and the companion dog. Health care is given detailed coverage, and, for the specialist, there is breed-specific information on breeding and whelping a litter. Illustrated with over 150 colour and black-and-white photos, this is a book for the true St Bernard enthusiast.
