The Greyhound; Its History, Points, Breeding, Rearing, Training and Running (A Vintage Dog Books Breed Classic)

The Greyhound; Its History, Points, Breeding, Rearing, Training and Running (A Vintage Dog Books Breed Classic)

Originally published in London 1886, this rare early work on the Greyhound is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have now republished it using the original text and illustration. The author was a highly respected expert on dogs who wrote several important breed books. He was also Kennel Editor of The Bazaar. The book contains six detailed chapters on: - History of The Modern Greyhound. - Coursing. - Breeding. - Rearing. - Training. - Waterloo Cup Winners from 1836 - 1886. In addition VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have also added a significant amount of extra material gleaned from other early writings on greyhounds. There are two extra chapters added, one written by distinguished dog writer, Vero Shaw, and the other by the noted dog researcher and historian, James Watson. This is a fascinating read for any Greyhound enthusiast or historian of the breed, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today.


Training And Racing The Greyhound

Training And Racing The Greyhound

Aimed at all greyhound enthusiasts, this practical book will be of help to the more experienced professional trainer as well as the novice handler. The physical stresses of racing mean that every greyhound will, at some point, sustain some form of injury, and it is therefore essential that the greyhound handler has some knowledge of injuries. Accordingly, the author places a strong emphasis on injury prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.


Greyhounds

Greyhounds

Few dogs are as emotionally engaging or physically elegant as the greyhound. None are as swift. Its unmatched fleetness is key to the breed’s longtime survival. Bred to hunt, the greyhound has a lineage extending back 8,000 years. Throughout their history, greyhounds have been the companions of kings and an inspiration to writers and artists alike. Today hundreds of young and healthy purebred greyhounds that do not make the grade on U.S. racetracks are in need of adoptive homes. Through the efforts of hundreds of greyhound-adoption groups, more than 20,000 former racing dogs are adopted into loving homes each year. With greater exposure of the breed, and greater awareness of their plight, all of these dogs can be placed after their tenure on the track and the breeding farms is over. The otherworldly beauty, quiet grace, and loving disposition of the retired racing greyhound were Barbara Karant’s inspiration for Greyhounds. By photographing her subjects against a pristine white background, she captures the dogs’ indomitable spirit—their spunk, humor, mystery, and charm. Karant’s gloriously expressive pictures, along with evocative texts by Alice Sebold and other writers, make this book a wonderful gift for anyone who has ever shared his or her life with a dog.
