One of the world’s most recognizable mugs graces the face of the Bulldog! Although the Bulldog’s ancestors were fierce and formidable fighting bullies, today’s breed is a docile, mild-mannered companion dog categorized in the AKC’s Non-Sporting Group. Author Michael Dickerson traces the evolution of today’s Bulldog, from the bloody baiting arenas of the nineteenth century to the show rings and living rooms of the twenty-first. The chapter devoted to the characteristics of the breed gives potential owners an excellent summary of the breed’s qualities to help them determine whether this unique purebred dog is right for their home and lifestyle. New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control.
