KIRKUS REVIEW

For many years Joseph Weber has been a name that was synonymous with training schools for dogs. Many visitors go to his school near Princeton every year to investigate his methods, leave dogs to be trained or just to see the place. In recent years since obedience tests have become so important a part of the great dog show game, Mr. Weber has conducted a class in Philadelphia and done much to disprove the old idea that well trained dogs had been cruelly treated. Training through kindness, a simple vocabulary always employing the same terms and commands captured the imagination of hundreds of exhibitors at the big shows, of owners of pet dogs until thousands began training dogs and joined the obedience test club. The system required by that club is given here. Successful completion of the three classes gives Fido the august titles of CD ""Companion Dog"", CDX ""Companion Dog Excellent"" and UD ""Utility Dog"" displayed after his name besides making him a useful and well mannered member of society. Another section gives excellent advice on breeding, care of the sick dog, grooming and general training for the car, house or leash. Part III is a fascinating account of professions for dogs, -- Police, Army and Seeing Eye. Mr. Weber was a pioneer in these fields both in Germany and the States. Stock this book, yes -- and suggest it. Call the attention of local dog clubs and obedience clubs to it. Advertise it. Remember the dog game is the biggest amateur sport in the country.
