KIRKUS REVIEW

The word from the Bide-A-Wee shelter on canicular particulars does not carry the waggishness of the Kinney and Honeycutt How To Raise A Dog (Simon & Schuster) but does carry an equal authority. For from countless dogs who are in its care, Dr. Deutsch has formulated sound suggestions which start in with the reasons for choosing a pet and the breeds (not always pure) which may best suit your needs, continue to the schooling of both dog and what hopes to be his master, settle down to the physical care and feeding. Disease and ailments, internal and external parasites, home medical treatment, breeding and pregnancies and puppies cover necessary territory and the questions of problem dogs, laws for owners farm dogs, dog shows and field trials wind up a trust-worthy and complete round-up for future and current devotees, who would be intelligent and practical as well as love the kind.
