Australian Cattle Dog: Comprehensive Owner's Guide

Charlotte Schwartz

The Blue Heeler from Down Under, the Australian Cattle Dog shines as the nation's pride and joy, a most versatile and fearless working dog that knows no bounds as a herder and companion dog. Developed to work cattle, as his name implies, the Australian Cattle Dog today performs flawlessly in many arenas: on ranches and farms as a tireless herder; in dog shows as a Best in Show winner; at obedience, herding and agility trials as a multi-title holder; and in homes as a prized family member. For the active family able to provide the AuCaDo with the structure, training and attention he requires, this remarkable breed will provide many years of quality companionship.

This new book provides insightful chapters on the breed's history in Australia, characteristics and standard as well as puppy selection, grooming, health care and feeding. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup's arrival, housebreaking and preventing puppy problems. Not only well written and informative but also beautifully illustrated with over 135 color photographs, this book will prove an excellent resource for all owners of the Australian Cattle Dog. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with an AuCaDo from puppyhood to the senior years.
