The Heritage Of The Dog: by Col. David Hancock (Author)
The Heritage Of The Dog: by Col. David Hancock (Author) (9781852592288)

Col. David Hancock author of Dogs as Companions and Old Working Dogs has produced a third book, this time on the heritage of the dog. Based on much original research, the book is a must for every breed historian and an essential buy for every sporting library. He covers the origins of the breeds and their subsequent development, dispelling myths and correcting many previous misconceptions. Whether it is gun-dogs or guard dogs, German breeds or Japanese, extinct breeds or newly created ones, he traces their ancestry and advocates genetic improvement and the preservation of true type with working ability. Undoubtedly it is a challenging, stimulating, scholarly addition to any dog lover's bookshelf.

This is a fascinating account of the history and development of the many types of dogs. Pedigree dogs have been recognized for about 100 years and therefore to trace the origins it becomes necessary to examine the functional requirements. The author has researched the available evidence and reaches conclusions which should stimulate thought on how the present breeds reached their current level of development. The illustrations used extend from old drawings to modern photographs and portray dogs in many situations. Many are being published for the first time. Even though the content below only show three chapters, there more than an abundance of material covered in each.

    The Dalmatian (A Handbook): by Clifford L. B. Hubbard
    The Dalmatian (A Handbook): by Clifford L. B. Hubbard (Author) (9781852590406)

    We are all familiar with this spotted dog once so useful as a carriage dog. Today the breed remains popular and has many followers in both the show world and as a general house dog. This book is well-illustrated with top class winners including the Supreme Champion at Crufts.

    Although the precise origins of the Dalmatian are obscure, there is no doubt that it has a long history dating back to the sixteenth Century or earlier.  The author covers this history as well as modern-day management. 

    In the nineteenth century they accompanied the carriages of the gentry and became known as the Coach Dogs.  They are agile, loyal and affectionate dogs who fit in well to the family environment.  Since the first edition the breed has won Best in Show at Crufts which obviously raises its prestige as a show dog.  Mrs. E.J. Woddyatt was the owner of the dog CH Fanhill Faune.  Moreover, recently Kennel Club registrations have exceeded 900. 

    Many photographs supplement the text and in characteristic manner Mr. Clifford L.B. Hubbard has researched the background of the breed.  The book can be recommended to all who are interested in the Dalmatian.
