Canine Terminology is a beautifully illustrated A-Z glossary covering all terms used in Breed Standards for purebred dogs worldwide. Terms are clearly defined, with reference to specific breeds where the term is used. Canine Terminology is the brainchild of Australian veterinarian, dog breeder, international dog judge and trainer of judges, Dr. Harold Spira. It gives dog people an organized body of information to systematize viewing and understanding breeding and judging standards.
Dog fanciers have long relied on Canine Terminology to understand and interpret canine structure, breed standards and judging criteria. Breeders, veterinarians, trainers and judges will especially welcome its' return, as part of the Dogwise Classics Series of hard-to-find dog books from Dogwise Publishing.
What reviewers are saying...
This book has become a classic, and deservedly so. Spira explains every word and phrase used in breed standards around the world clearly and simply, and the text makes reference to actual standards where the terms are used. Canine Terminology is also beautifully illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings by Mary and Peggy Davidson. This is a must-have reference book for every breeder and exhibitor and has long been the definitive book in its field. Stephanie Horan
