This muscular, shorthaired canine makes a wonderful family pet. He is good with children but needs regular exercises to prevent boredom, which often instigates bad habits. All titles in Barronâ€™s profusely-illustrated Complete Pet Ownerâ€™s Manuals introduce inexperienced and prospective pet owners to the pleasures and duties of pet care. They also make ideal guides for older children having their first experiences as animal caretakers. Attractively illustrated and filled with helpful information, Barronâ€™s Complete Pet Ownerâ€™s Manuals advise on purchasing, housing, feeding, health careâ€”and where applicable, grooming and training pets. Each book is individually written by an expertâ€”a trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. These manuals cover every popular dog and cat breed, as well as bird varieties, hamsters and other small caged animals, fish varieties for aquarium hobbyists, terrarium pets, and even exotics, such as reptiles, amphibians, and scorpions. All books have 70 or more color photos, and most also have instructive line illustrations.
