Book Description

J.B. Garry, a successful breeder of Dobermans, has also worked as a dog trainer, providing his services to the police and the military. He has trained hundreds of dogs with great success - admirers say he 'speaks with dogs'.

J.B. Garry is convinced that this book will give you a much clearer picture of man's best friend. You will be able to more easily decide which breed of dog suits your lifestyle, the quantity of personal time you wish to spend with your pet dog and the type of living space available.

Generally, dogs require a little bit of love and a little bit of patience. And what do you get in return? A real friend for life, a companion who, if necessary, will selflessly sacrifice his life to defend you, your family and your possessions.

About the Author

J.B. Garry was born 1962 in Western Europe. His first contact with a dog took place when he made his first steps as a child. As a ten year old child, he went hunting with his relatives, taking with him the hunting dogs. The hunters loved him because he was the youngest among them, and they gave him the nickname 'Blue Hunter'. He had a number of different breeds of dogs, but in 1984, he made up his mind to choose the Doberman. His Doberman kennel produced a great number of dogs of which quite a few won numerous awards in various dog competitions and expositions.

    Very good dog reference book. Nice touch with the flags shown of the country of origin. Even interesting information on the new designer dogs, i.e. Labradoodle.
