Veterinarian-approved advice and information is emphasized in Barron's Dog Bibles series. Written mainly for first-time owners, these books advise readers on physical and behavioral characteristics they should look for when choosing a puppy. Each book focuses on a specific canine breed, describing the title breed's traits, history, behavior characteristics, and recommended training methods, with information on how breed-specific traits influence the relationship between dog and owner. Also described are potential breed-specific health problems owners should look out for. Attractive sidebars present fun facts, breed truths, and helpful hints. A hidden spiral binding ensures that the book will stay open and flat at any desired page. The DVD enclosed with each book presents an informal dog training course for new owners. Each book is filled with attractive color photos. Among the most intelligent of all dogs, German Shepherds are the subjects of this book. They are quick learners, and they readily respond to carefully structured obedience training.
