ENCYCLOPEDIA OF K-9 TERMINOLOGY (ENCYCLOPAEDIA)

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF K-9 TERMINOLOGY (ENCYCLOPAEDIA)

Authors - Edward M Gilbert & Patricia H Gilbert - Publisher - Dogwise

Interpreting the language of dog enthusiasts and Breed Standards

Have you ever been stumped trying to understand what a judge, breeder or dog fancier is saying about a dog? Or been utterly confused when reading a Breed Standard? What is meant by "butterfly nose", "fish hook front" or "crabbing? Encyclopedia of K-9 Terminology to the rescue! Veteran AKC judges and breeders Ed Gilbert and his wife Pat Gilbert have pulled together every conceivable term applied to dogs to aid experts and amateurs alike to help all understand and correctly use the language of the sport. Ten years in the writing and richly illustrated with drawings by artist and purebred dog breeder, Dan Sayers, the Encyclopedia of K-9 Terminology is an exhaustive reference tool for dog fanciers for generations to come. And weighing in at 4 pounds with over 800 pages you will have a lot of information at your fingertips!

You will learn

That the language and terminology of Breed Standards vary almost as much as the breeds they are describing. Thus the confusion over words like "wrist", "“carpals" and "front pasterns".

Why some terms may be viewed as positive for some dogs but negative for others based on the original purpose of the breed.

About the large number of slang words and nicknames that you might be more apt to hear around the show ring than read in a book.

Many commonly used terms and phrases that are not technically or grammatically accurate, but if the words appear in an official Breed Standard, they are "correct".

BETWEEN DOG AND WOLF

BETWEEN DOG AND WOLF

Author - Jessica Addams & Andrew Miller - Publisher - Dogwise

Dogs are dogs and wolves are wolves. Except when they aren’t!

Most scientists now agree that the dog is a subspecies of wolf—Canis lupus familiaris. And while most wolves look and act differently from most dogs, it can be very hard to make accurate identifications, especially since wolves and dogs can and do interbreed and certain breeds of dogs look and act a lot like wolves.

Having spent years employed at Wolf Park, in Indiana, authors Jessica Addams and Andrew Miller have encountered hundreds of so-called wolves that turned out to be dogs, hybrids that exhibit the characteristics of both wolves and dogs, and even pure wolves that act like dogs. Between Dog and Wolf takes a fascinating look at how wolves and dogs are related, why they can be so hard to tell apart and what rescue organizations need to know when they encounter a canine of unknown origins.
