Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 190309870X, Hardcover)

Described variously as “the little skipper,” “the little devil” and “the little shepherd of Belgium,” the multi-faceted Schipperke enjoys a dedicated following around the world. Prized for his intelligence and intense activity, “the little skipper” brings a shipful of personality and industry along with its cargo. Loaded with affection and devotion to his family with a dollop of mischief and good humor, “the little devil” makes an ideal choice for a family seeking companionship and entertainment. Further, as watchdog and stable dog, he lives up to his name of “little shepherd” as well. Written by Belgian breed authority and international judge Dr. Robert Pollet, this Comprehensive Owner’s Guide provides helpful advice about acquiring a well-bred, typical puppy, house-training, teaching obedience commands, home safety and more. Additionally this colorful book, illustrated with over 135 color photographs, discusses the breed standard, characteristics and the Schipperke’s history, with a special section by breeder Bette Wynn about the breed’s development in the US. A lavishly illustrated chapter on canine health, written by popular veterinarian Dr. Lowell Ackerman, addresses topics vital to every Schipperke owner, including selecting a veterinarian, vaccinations, parasite control and more. Complete and fully up-to-date, this new book provides everything a new owner needs to know about living with a Schipperke from puppyhood to the senior years.
